This presentation was given at eLearning 2010 in Fort Worth, TX. The focus is to discuss how existing educational material, supplemented with newly created material, can be organized into a cohesive "object" that might one day be able to replace the traditional textbook, and can already supplement it.

  • 4. Our Goals
    Given: Textbook provides structure and content
    Focus on creation of supplemental materials and rental of existing texts
    Develop playlists of academic content to either supplement or replace textbooks
    Prepare an infrastructure to be prepared for the post-textbook era, if it arises
  • 5. Spinning
    To
    Obscurity?

  • 6. So, what is a playlist?
    Media(captioned)
    Website with text/articles
    Introduction text, learning objectives and outcomes, etc.
    Another website article/text
    Transition text
  • 7. The Basic Idea is…
    The stuff is already out there…let’s use it!
    May be more sustainable than the process of developing fully open textbooks
    Could a fusion of both techniques represents the future of content delivery?
    Fundamentals of the technique are familiar
    Faculty are accustomed to assembling existing content already.
    This just makes it a more formal and packaged process.
  • 8. Where we are in the process…
    Grant started in October 2010, major work beginning in late November 2010.
    Actively working with faculty on content module production (media, text, etc.)
    Will begin playlist work this semester.
    How would we build one.............?
