PDFs etc. • Also ILM’s (Articulate Storyline) etc - interactive content
  8. 8. Moodle LMS Web: http://teachingbox.net/lms LAN: moodle/ • Teachers can add plugins to the moodle. • Keep in mind that resources should be in Moodle to work without Internet • 60, 120 & 240 Gb at moment but 1 Tb+ models are coming • Looks and feels like a WordPress site • Can port forward on modem/router and C3 talks to Internet • Multiple languages are possible • Will develop tutorials to teach teachers how to use Moodle this way • Responsive theme for mobile devices
  9. 9. Developed Moodle Plugin A B Smart script recognises if user is from internet or the C3 LAN. A. Local LAN users get video served from the C3 B. Internet users get video from YouTube Benefit: Rich media HD video without drain on bandwidth.

  12. 12. Learner Back Channel Web: http://teachingbox.net/blab LAN: 192.168.100.254/blab • Internal “twitter-like” text chat software • Even though Moodle has live text chat .. can’t be used without login. • Build knowledge and capture all questions and comments. • Particularly useful engaging audiences at conference presentations, lectures and even church meetings

  14. 14. More Users & More Control 1 2 3 4 1. C3 Device 2. Energizer Battery Pack 3. LAN Blocker Switch 4. ASUS RT-N66U N900 Gb Router
  15. 15. Just One More Thing Coming Soon … I hope LAMS - Learning Activity Management System Web: http://lessonlams.com • An excellent tool for helping teachers build interactive, pedagogically strong, learning sequences • Can be integrated with the Moodle, so moodle activities and resources can be part of LAMS lessons • Teachers can monitor and coach students in real time as they do lessons
  16. 16. First World Possibilities “I see the C7 teaching system relieve the classroom teacher of two major stress factors. The first is by providing a reliable delivery system for digital content. The second is by enabling the teacher to orchestrate when and how the students will access the internet. This will help build a community of learners that are engaged on the task at hand with few distractions." Bryan Prosser Math/Science Teacher University Prep High School Visalia CA USA
  17. 17. Strengths and Weaknesses Please suggest ways this “third world” educational strategy might help your educational world … often with stakeholders with “first world problems”
