Teaching & Learning Conference

Moodle Journal

With regard to content I took the opportunity to demonstrate Wimba Create , which in itself would act as nice advertisement for my training session. With Wimba Create in mind and the whole area of producing suitable content, the session touched on outlining the concepts of learning objects and the Scorm recommendations, I did find a very useful cartoon style short video clip SCORM Demystified from YouTube for this.

Our Technology School are exhibiting at the Excel Conference Center WorldSkills London 2011 05 from Oct 2011 to 08 Oct 2011, so for that alone, I would certainly recommend getting along for a visit in this coming week, I should be there myself on Friday, and really looking forward to it.

End of Year Conference

Moodle Journal

As you will have read from other posts on this blog I am taking every opportunity to provide the widest expose possible for Wimba Create this academic year, so the second half is sorted. I was asked this week to provide a short session on using our Moodle vle for the for our end of year Teaching and Learning Conference here at the College.

Blended Learning

So first off, what are the considerations for moving from class based to online delivery, well I have talked about that a lot over the years on this blog, particular the move away from class support materials written in Word to something more eLearning compliant and for that we have been making very successful use of Wimba Create for some time now, I can recommend it.

Wikis as Assignments

E-Learning Acupuncture

I attended a very useful online presentation last week by Mike Orey of the University of Georgia (via the Wimba Distinguished Lecture Series ). In one of his graduate courses in education, as an assessment activity, he asks students to contribute to a wiki-book that he and his colleagues have developed: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology.

Evolving the E-Learning Experience for the 21st Century

eLearning 24-7

What always stuns me are vendors who state they know what their learners want, but in reality have no clue, because they themselves do not see the technology and its usage among the masses. Collaboration via a virtual experience can go places that were not possible before, offers innovation and continues the evolution of systems to adapt in the technology age.

Complaint? Students Don't Hang Out in Virtual Worlds After Class

Kapp Notes

It is interesting to me that we often require a higher standard of new teaching technology than we do for existing teaching technologies. The same is true of Adobe Connect, Horizon Wimba and other 2D classroom software.

Research from Bersin & Associates indicates virtual classrooms are the most widely adopted learning technology in corporations (use increased from 45% in 2008 to 60% in 2009 Bersin notes).

Needs analysis– something old, something new

Allison Rossett

When I was a young professor of instructional design and technology at San Diego State University , students often sought advice on how to make decisions about outcomes and strategies. Analysis is how workforce learning professionals decide what to do, given a world where you can’t do everything, respond to every request, meet every need, use every groovy technology. Do they have technology to enable access to on demand resources?

Newsletter,feedback and eMaterials

Moodle Journal

As you will have read from previous recent postings, I have introduced Wimba Create as tool for converting Word files into Scorm packages, and these can include embedded webpages, media and short tests. The other day I received an email from our Technology department asking if I could install some new eLearning materials onto the vle for them, which naturally I was more than pleased to both do and also take the opportunity to review.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.
