Learning Circuits Big Question - Where is the eLearning?
Topic: Instructional Design

In response to Learning Circuits big question, “Where are the examples of eLearning?” I have pointed to the wiki for the Digital Media subject “Relate to Clients on a Business Level”. This wiki illustrates a model for the integration of wikis, blogs and widgets in elearning. The  power of three.

The wiki provides a gateway to teaching and learning resources and its structure is based on the subject’s learning outcomes. A “work in progress” wiki space is provided for each student.

The widgets are used to enhance teaching resources. They include,

Scribd: presents online documents that can be listened to, scrolled, enlarged and scanned, and downloaded.

SlideShare: presents PowerPoint presentations,

Odeo: presents podcasts and a sidebar player that automatically updates as the teacher adds podcasts to Odeo. presents mindmaps and flowcharts that can be enlarged and scanned.

ProProfs: presents online formative assessment quizzes.

The blogs are created and maintained by students as a portfolio of their assessment events that in turn utilize a range of widgets for presenting results.

From a teacher who has spent many years developing eLearning using programming languages, software applications, and authoring systems this trio of Web2.0 applications is the way to go.

YouTube for Cartoons
Topic: Instructional Design

MyToons, which is currently in private beta, is an impressive new video and image-sharing site for cartoons. You can upload your own videos and artwork, and find the most viewed, top rated, most discussed and most recent media in these sections. The player is large, fast loading and Flash-based - it can also be expanded to take up much of the screen. Look out too for tagging, comments and the ability to share via email (strangely, there’s no option to embed clips in MySpace and blogs). Beyond media sharing, there’s also groups, messaging, networks of friends and profile pages. The profiles provide a choice of design templates, and you can also create you own.

Multiple Choice Question Code
Topic: Instructional Design
Copy and paste the Javascript from this document to create interactive multiple choice questions in your projects.
This example demonstrates the use of form objects and JavaScript to implement a simple question that is marked without the use of CGI, in other words, handled by the client side browser. This example works with any browser that supports JavaScript, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. An advantage of implementing questions this way is that a server and Internet connection is not required. The HTML pages are also capable of being placed on CD-ROM/DVD.
