Tools for Online Learning

With materials based learning the empahsis is on interactivity.
  • Video
  • Audio
  • Links to other sites
  • Dynamic content
Studies actually show if you do this all you get is students thinking about what to push next and not the material itself  (Laurillard). There is a great book called Learning By Doing that shows the first step in creating a "doing" environment is a flowchart of activity and the easiest way to do this for a start is in Excel! (I wrote this in my teaching diary 8/1/01 and the book came out a long time afterward).
