  3. 3. VoiceThread This course requires an end-of-class project. Each week, you will post a new component of your project to VoiceThread. VoiceThread acts as a portfolio site. You can decide what to post for each weeks assignment – files, audio recordings, videos, cartoons, etc. VoiceThread allows other learners and the instructor to view the information, make comments, and provide feedback to your portfolio. As you prepare your portfolio on VoiceThread, you decide what is important to include or exclude. Click on the arrow for next slide.
  4. 4. VoiceThread One of the goals identified as important in distance learning is a program that is responsive to the learner. By using VoiceMail portfolios, you identify and have an active role in selecting your “best work” which “represents a level of self-assessment requiring thoughtful consideration of learning goals and progress towards significant milestones.” (Simonson et al, 2012 p. 276) Click on the arrow for next slide.

  6. 6. A wiki is a web page with content related to the course. “A wiki can be an excellent tool for collaborative writing assignments and group activities compiling information in a single resource.” (Simonson et al, 2012, p.129.) What’s a wiki? Click on the arrow for next slide.
  7. 7. Why use wikis? As mentioned in the introduction, distance learning should be responsive to the learner. By using wikis, you can add content that you find relevant to the course or ask for more information on a specific topic. Your instructor and peers can add additional details to the wiki article.

  9. 9. In a traditional classroom environment, students are asked to discuss topics within a lecture format. In distance learning, students participate in discussions by using the discussion forum. Unlike the classroom setting, discussion forums give learners an opportunity to read the question, think about their response and post comments to the board. “Contributions are apt to be more meaningful, on topic, and well organized that those in a traditional classroom environment.” (Simonson et al, 2012, p. 274).

  10. 10. Discussion Groups Each week an assignment related to the course reading will be posted. Post your discussion response to the assignment by Monday evening. Read through your classmate’s posts and reply to two posts by Friday evening. You will find the link to the discussion boards on the left hand dashboard. Click on the arrow for next slide.

  12. 12. Mindmaps An important part of Project Management is identifying goals and related tasks. A mindmap uses key words or phrase organized in a nonlinear format, usually starting at the center and branching out with individual ideas or topics. Click on the arrow for next slide.
  13. 13. What’s in a mindmap? The term “mind map” was first popularized by author Tony Buzan (Buzan, 1982). Buzan identified the following characteristic as critical to a mindmap:  The main ideas are clearly defined and placed in the center of the graphic.  The relative importance of a sub-idea is indicated by its proximity to the main idea.  Links between ideas are clearly indicated.  New information is easily added to a mind map because of its nonlinear structure. (Simonson et al, 2012, p. 254). Click on the arrow for next slide.
