Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

So we start the session and I’m sitting alone in front of my computer at Loyola Marymount (this must be before 2000). I was holding my handset to my ear (no headset in my office). I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. It made me immediately think back to my first experience with an online session. It was the first ever public session for Placeware - a virtual meeting software company that was much later acquired by Microsoft and became Microsoft Live Meeting.

When we take a look at the research, we find that the term  learning style has varying definitions (see, for example, Wang, Wang, Wang, & Huang, 2006; Franzoni & Assar, 2009; Kinshuk, Liu, & Graf, 2009; Wu & Alrabah, 2009).

Adobe eLearning Suite: for the master of all trades

Clive on Learning

The imminent release of the Adobe eLearning Suit e has got me thinking about the authoring tools market as it stands in 2009. Video is very much the medium of the moment as far as e-learning is concerned and Premiere is as good as any video editor on the market. I can only imagine that the inclusion of Premiere would lift the price of the bundle out of reach, and certainly over $2000. Who needs authoring tools and which tools do they need? Quite a bundle and an exciting prospect for toy lovers. But I can't help but wonder who all this is aimed at.
