I confess, I am not a natural blogger so it will be useful to explore and see how blogs may support our teaching. I am not yet convinced about blogging but you need to know the tool before you can pass judgment I guess so will start out, at least, recording my progress as a facilatator of the Thebarton Learnscope project.
For myself, the project began with a conference with Marlene taking the Project Managers and Facilatators though a range of resources and requirements. It was also great to meet and work with others working on a range of projects.
Our team got got off to a great start last week with Marlene introducing us to some critical concepts in e-learning – as well as selling blogging as a reflective tool. Bruce then introduced us to Moodle and the basic tools. My challenge is to use Moodle as a communication medium and to provide resources for course participants.
It has been great to see the start people have been making – with one class already using some online tools.
Am also realizing we need to have consistency so we will have to develop templates/protocols. This is to ensure the learner’s experience will be the consistent as they move from course to course. Also the need to stress login/registration procedure. One participant created their own login thus depriving themselves of assigned rights.
