I feel that this is my best post this week it was a great choice for a learning tool in the course I designed. I was able to utilize this learning tool by creating an online quiz. I had a positive experience when doing so. Everything was very straight forward and I had no difficulty whatsoever. I would recommend this tool for instructors.

Quote several of the best posts from other students. Explain why you chose the ones you present.

Did a phenomenal job designing this course. The technology tools she used for this course were excellent choices. She chose to use tools that most students are familiar with. I believe this increases the probability of students succeeding to the ease of operating these technology tools.

  • 2-3 minute video overview by instructor using Screencast-o-matic combined with Youtube.  Here’s an example of what I mean-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHnV5_stUYw&feature=youtu.be&hd=1
  • Reading links posted on BB.
  • Brief Multiple choice reading quiz using BB
  • Discussion Board post that ask a project based our problem based question that relates the reading to students’ lives/professions
  • Presentations would utilize Slideshare or Youtube
  • Research would utilize LibGuides
  • Writing would utilize Worpress and/or BB file exchange and Group Blog or Journal.
  • Questions from students could be asked via Twitter in order to get fast responses from classmates and instructor.

She did an excellent job giving examples of how she would utilize these different forms of technology tools. Her initial post was very detailed and informative. She set a great example for the rest of the class!

What did you learn in the discussion this week that will be useful to you or that changes the way you view something? 

I enjoyed this weeks blog activity the most because I was able to get hands-on experience creating and implementing technology tools. I discovered many new technology tools and I learned how to operate many of these tools. After completing this week’s activity, I can see how each module relates. I am beginning to feel more and more confident with my abilities to successfully design and e-learning course.
