Open Source eLearning Tools

Tony Karrer

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. In addition, she indicates if they are free or cost money – which is not quite the same thing as open source. Beyond that, probably the best thing to do is to use eLearning Learning to go through it’s open source eLearning and open source eLearning Tools.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Then, maybe open it up to subject matter experts. Wouldn't you rather have it out in the open? Open up editing slowly. Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning. It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully.

Ive been tinkering with Many Eyes over the last couple of weeks as a way of exploring potential visual navigation tools/interfaces for Open University courses and qualifications, and OpenLearn OERs/course units: [link] and search for "many eyes". Im happy with TWiki but would have to build the mind map manually. Open Source. e-Clippings (Learning As Art). Subscribe to e-Clippings (a division of blogoehlert).
