Transcript

  • 1. Authoring tools Joe Buchanan e-Learning Development Officer Division for Lifelong Learning Directors of Studies Forum (Taught)  Tue 6 May 2009 Slide 1 of 10
  • 2. About authoring tools These are software packages which can be used to create and publish online learning materials easily and quickly – concentrating on structure, form and pedagogy instead of learning about code. You can produce self-contained, media-rich reusable learning objects, such as tutorials. At Bath, we’re concentrating on eXe and Xerte, which are both free. Slide 2 of 10
  • 3. Benefits and drawbacks + Ease of use + Media richness + Instant feedback + Intersperse activities informally + Encourages active pedagogical approach – Limits to functionality – There’s still a learning curve – Software sometimes not so slick Slide 3 of 10
  • 4. The authoring process Slide 4 of 10
  • 5. The publishing process Slide 5 of 10
  • 6. In use in Moodle Slide 6 of 10
  • 7. Some feedback Authoring: eXe makes you think about the subject matter – you have to turn it on its head so that students can interrogate it through questioning. Student use: I like the instant answers and the additional explanations over and above whether I was right or wrong. Slide 7 of 10
  • 8. The project We aim to: • use eXe and Xerte to generate exemplar resources • evaluate the tutorials and the development process • develop guidance on effective tutorial design • investigate integration of tools within Moodle Slide 8 of 10
  • 9. Where you come in Does it offer you any opportunities for learning and teaching? I’d like: • partners to develop resources with me • participants for the summer staff development course Slide 9 of 10
  • 10. Any questions? Summer course: Mon 15 Jun for 3 weeks e-learning@bath.ac.uk for all queries Project blog Revisit on Slideshare.net http://blogs.bath.ac.uk/elat/ tag: eatbath Slide 10 of 10
