Final presentation compressed

  1. 1. Open Source Tools for Highly Effective E-Learning<br />Final Presentation <br />Liz Savage and Susan Mileto<br />
  2. 2. Summary<br />We have been working with our client, Greg Walsh, to research open source tools for instructional designers.  The eventual final product will be a resource book, itself open source, of tools for e-learning. The entire internship took place online, with most of our work shared through Google Docs. We summarized the features and uses for a variety of software tools, creating a few tutorials using the tool to create instructional media.<br />
  3. 3. Proposal<br />Our proposal stated that we would:<br />Work with our client, Greg Walsh, to produce a handbook of open source tools <br />Research open source tools for graphics, page layout, audio, video, course design/development, and LMS <br />Write a description of each and create a text + picture tutorial using the tool to create a piece of instructional media<br />Work together both in person and by collaborating via Google Docs<br />Use email and Google Docs to collaborate, communicate, and submit all work to Greg Walsh<br />
  4. 4. Personal goal<br />Our goal for the internship was to:<br />Broaden our personal knowledge of open source tools available<br />Explore ways to enhance our own instructional practice<br />
  5. 5. What did we do and how did we do it ?<br />We worked independently, researching open-source tools for e-learning, based off of our client’s book outline<br />We communicated via email to divide up tools. <br />For each tool we wrote up:<br />Major features<br />Getting started with the software<br />Instructional uses<br />
  6. 6. Examples of tools explored<br />Open Source Page layout tools: Scribus<br />Open Source tools for graphics: GIMP, Inkscape, Scalable vector graphics versus bitmap<br />Open Source tools for 3D: Blender, Pencil<br />Open Source tools for Audio: Audacity<br />
  7. 7. Google Docs for sharing<br />Click Play <br />
  8. 8. Communication cont. <br />Besides posting work to Google Docs, we used the occasional e-mail and comment/discussion tools with Docs to share ideas <br />
  9. 9. Results<br />Our result was creating the very beginning of an eventual finished product, which will be an Open Source resource book <br />The following slides show a few of our created pages.<br />
  10. 10. Blender<br />
  11. 11. Click Play <br />
  12. 12. Pencil – 2D animation tool<br />
  13. 13. Click Play <br />
  14. 14. Scribus<br />Click Play <br />
  15. 15. Lessons Learned<br />We have learned <br />Open Source Software is freely available, and can cover almost any need for e-learning<br />It is important to find the right tool to fit your training need, but it also needs to be a tool you are comfortable working with<br />How easy it is to work with others remotely and collaborate using web-based tools<br />
  16. 16. Next time?<br />We’d seek out examples of desired end products<br />Become comfortable working with the tools we’d create tutorials for in advance<br />Have a regular check-in meeting to discuss what was accomplished that week as well as a plan for the upcoming week<br />
