Getting Started With CompendiumLD (version 1)


Published on

This slide show describes how to get started using CompendiumLD, a tool for creating visual representations of learning activities.
Teachers and media developers go through a complex decision making process when designing new learning experiences – working towards an effective pedagogical mix, combining resources, tools, student and tutor support.
For an individual media developer or teacher, the process of creating a visual map of a learning activity clarifies their own understanding of the mix. For teams comprised of individuals focused on different aspects, a visual representation supports communication about issues that need to be resolved before the activity is delivered to students.

Getting Started With CompendiumLD (version 1)

  1. 1. Getting started with CompendiumLD<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />This guide focuses on howto use CompendiumLD to create a visual representation of  a learning activity. <br />If you haven&apos;t already created a project and logged in, see the &apos;Getting started &apos; page on the CompendiumLD web site which will guide you through the process of creating your first CompendiumLD project and logging in. <br />
  3. 3. First screen<br />When you first start CompendiumLD and log in, it will look like this<br />
  4. 4. Working area<br />This is the working area<br />
  5. 5. Nodes<br />These elements are called ‘nodes’<br />
  6. 6. Learning design node stencil<br />On the left hand side is the learning design node stencil<br />
  7. 7. Basic operation<br />Following this slide is a short video ( &lt; 2 minutes long) showing you how to carry out some basic functions in CompendiumLD.<br />This video shows how to create, edit and link nodes and is best viewed in full screen.<br />It shows version 0.75 of CompendiumLD but the principles remain the same in this version<br />
  8. 8. Creating a learning design (1)<br />Now we will look at how CompendiumLD can be used to create maps of learning activities. To begin, look at this example of a learning activity map.<br />This map contains just a few of the types of learning design nodes provided by CompendiumLD. <br />
  9. 9. Creating a learning design (2)<br />Role: shows who is to perform the tasks<br />Task: the tasks to be carried out<br />Time<br />Resource: a resource (e.g. a document or movie) to be used in the learning activity<br />Tool: any tool that is used in the learning activity , e.g. forum, blog, wiki<br />Stop: the end of the activity – all the learning outcomes should have been met by now!<br />
  10. 10. Creating a learning design<br />The next video shows how to design learning activities using CompendiumLD ( &lt; 4 minutes long)<br />
  11. 11. Other roles and relationships<br />This simple example shows how interactions between learners and tutors may be modelled.<br />
  12. 12. Doing more with CompendiumLD<br />There is another slideshow which illustrates additional things you can do with CompendiumLD including<br />Adding timing info<br />Including documents and web pages<br />Saving and sharing<br /><br />
