Reward for effort!

After joining the very steep learning curve of e-learning I will be tech support for an online class in a couple of weeks.  Looking forward to it, scary that it is. Over the past few months I have been developing an online course as my Project, using wikispaces.  However, I have also been introduced to Moodle through attending a lot of PD online and classes, so will be having a play in that (during the school hols).  It does seem to be more flexible than wikispaces, though it seems to take a lot of playing to get the full potential.  A session with Leo Gregorc on Friday showed that.  There are so many programs that I have been introduced to throughout the year, but the one I have found really useful is quizlet. Because my current work is face to face, this is the way I can introduce something different, light but challenging to learners. Last week I created a quizlet matching words with pictures for my Intro to Retail class of disability students.  They loved it and it has encouraged me to do more.

  3. Thanks Lynne, have appreciated all the online sessions, PD, encouragement and opportunities for self-improvement that the E-Mentors have given me, especially Christine and yourself. Thank You. Have so much more to learn, but it is rewarding and fun.
