  1. 1. +Final Presentation:Building Online Learning EnvironmentsJosh Reppenhagen27 May, 2013
  2. 2. + Building Online LearningEnvironmentsKeep in mind: Everyone learns in different ways –even our students. Using various forms of multimediacan help reach students who learndifferently. Students also respond well tothings they are familiar with – liketechnology and multimedia.There are many ways to incorporate online learningenvironments in the classroom…
  3. 3. +Creating an online CLASSROOM I allows teachers to create an online or“flipped” version of their classroomand course content. This online environment allows for discussion boards, postingassignments and handouts, content linking,and even assignment submissionand grading.Pros: Free (up to 5 courses)CustomizationOnline gradingDiscussion boardsCons: Creation learning curveSLOW response timeson some networksYou can’t (easily) deletea course
  4. 4. +Online surveys is a free and simple to use sitefor creating online surveys in many formats. Surveys can be a great way to introduce students to ideas andcontent. They can be used to assess student’s priorknowledge or learning. Surveys are a good source for discussionstarters.Pros: FreeEASY to useLink or embed surveysInstant data collectionCons: none!
  5. 5. +Differentiated Tools Everyone learns differently, so it’s important to use differenttools to meet student’s needs. is a virtual bulletin board for your classroom. This site allows you to post different types of contentonline for your students to interact with.Pros: FreeEASY to useLink or embedCons: Could use somemore options/effects
  6. 6. +Other helpful tools: Animoto: Allows you to create beautiful and interesting videoslideshows in minutes. The only drawback is the subscriptionfee for videos over 30 seconds. VoiceThread: Creating podcasts or using my own recordedvoice has always been intimidating to me. VoiceThread made itvery easy to create an interactive podcast. It also allows thestudents to leave comments or ask questions, which is a greatfeature. Glogster: Similar to Lino, but with a more polishedpresentation. These online bulletin boards offer morecustomization and social networking. However, the free versionIS limited and you have to pay for the better features.
  7. 7. +Success & Challenges Created elements I willUSE in MY classroom! Proud of my work! Learned about NEWresources! Enjoyed the process! Coursesites can be VERYfinicky…! Having to hear my ownvoice on VoiceThread (Ithink it sounds ridiculous) Using new resources canbe a learning experience(i.e. frustrating!)
  8. 8. + Getting started with Moodle was not easy – there is alearning curve, especially if you have no prior experiencewith online classes. The tutorials helped a great deal! There is definitely a need for online learning like Moodle.However, I would not want to see all education replaced by“tech teaching.” I’d be out of a job! I enjoyed being able to see what others did before me or inthe same class.
  9. 9. +My collection of work: Lino:Urban & Rural Settings VoiceThread: How Setting Affects Mood SurveyMonkey: Urban & Rural Settings Coursesites: Unit 1: Urban & Rural Settings Google Drive: Rubrics, Quizzes, and Lessons
