  • Course website alternatives \nreasons for decisions\nStrategy for positioning Sakai\nwithin the technology toolset\nMetaphor for promoting Sakai\nExample of the metaphor in use\n
  • Options for course website\nCMS– Sakai, Moodle, Canvas,\nTrad. website – DIY\nTextbook hwk – Lang, Math\nBlog – announcements + static\nGoogle – blog, wiki, groups.\nOther – Rezon, Digication\n
  • Poll Everywhere / Wordle \n
  • Need for restriction\nLinked by grades\nHard to replace as a group\nLeast likely to do outside\n
  • Maybe also Forums\nDown-/flip-/other side\nExternal - flexibile, functionality\nPublisher sites integrate w/books\n
  • \n
  • Write-pair-share\nTools (commercial or local)\nused in courses\n2 widely used, popular\n1 should be used more\n
  • Widely adopted, pretty,\n flexible, upgraded, free\nMissing functionality\nLTI – Kaltura, WordPress, Wikispaces\n \n
  • Applied Multimedia, Spring 2012\nCommunicate and solve problems\nFour dimensions: functionality,\naesthetics, content, usability\nProjects: image, blogs, and sound\nOther tools: Second Life, Flash\n\n
  • Goal - use best tools, within constraints \nChoose Sakai and external tools based on\nEase of use – design, learning curve\nFunctionality – compared w/tools students using\nConvenience – few logins, mobile-friendly\nSecurity – grades and minor assignments\n

  • NOTE - Sakai is new at ND\nAssignments – heavy use\nGradebook – tightly integrated\nTests and Quizzes – few\nEmail Archive – in lieu of ListServ\n
  • Icon-based home – too much for Web Content\nProject site hides files\nGroups by color - students saw a single icon\n
  • External Tools - major feature enhancements\nNo new accounts required\nBox – distribute public files (vs. resources)\nGoogle Docs (ND) – group work (vs. wiki)\n
  • Student blogs (vs. Sakai blogs)\nSome issues with integration\n
  • used a few times (vs. Sakai polls)\n
  • External Content\nND OCW – loaded in advance\nOpen content - Creative Commons\nCalendar, assignment descriptions\nHandouts, readings, syllabus, links, \nAccessible to anyone on the planet\n\n
  • Safari Books Online\n2 required textbooks\n(free through library)\n
  • iTunes U – podcast publication (by professor)\nLynda – 2 major tutorials, 2 minor ($40)\n
  • No formal analysis was done, but\ndata were gathered from several sources\nSelf-reports from Focus group and CIF\nStats - Sakai, OCW, Lynda, Safari, etc.\n\n
  • Unfamiliar territory\nTook 2 weeks to get used to Saki + OCW\nStudents liked Sakai, esp. gradebook\nAssignment tool needs filtering\nNot excited about email archive\nBack button issues\n
  • OCW pageviews from Google Analytics\nThey liked the calendar and project materials\nThey liked having a complete, stable set of materials\nConfusion on assignment descriptions - my fault\nSome found going back and forth confusing, others had no problem\nThey were generally very positive on the setup\n
  • Safari section view stats\nNearly all students chose Safari over paper books\nNone reported issues with e-reading\n
  • Student feedback on other tools\nBox - liked the integration\nSome would have preferred DropBox\nND beginning institutional rollout\nIndiana U beginning work on LTI\nGoogle Docs - loved it\nGreat for group work\nWordPress - liked it as well\nFound it easy to use\nLynda - only a few liked or used it\nMany resented the cost\nFelt there were free tutorials out there\nSome would rather get assignment and look for videos \n\nThere were no suggestions for additional tools\n
  • Metaphor worked very well for CAPP 30523\nBest evaluations in eight years!\nSakai-plus tool mix was successful\nAssignments - huge for “studio” classes, butneeds improvement for classes w/ many items\nUse assignment descriptions in Sakai only\nGradebook - a big hit\nTests & Quizzes - reading checks valuable\nExternal tools\nG docs - awesome\nBox - explore new options as it rolls out\nWordPress - some LTI problems\n\nSakai-OCW content mix: successful\nOCW - forced major advanced organization\nLynda - make it optional and \nexplain self-teaching alternatives\n\n
  • Tech Demo follows - come and chat!\n\nIF TIME ** 7 principles **\nor\nSKIP to QR code screen\n
  • Talk about teaching has been secondary so far\nbut I’d like to send you off thinking \nabout effective ways to use the power tools\n7 principles - famous study nearly 20 years ago\nChickering & Gamson summarized years of research\n
  • Small groups – on a large index card, describe a creative yet effective strategy for using Assignments or Tests and Quizzes – and relate it to one of the seven principles\n\n
  • Paperless handouts\n
