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.
