Hello all, I have been teaching for some time, and within the last few years I've taken a great interest in integrating technology into the classroom. For me this has either consisted of putting interactive activities into a VLE such as Moodle, or creating collaborative activities by using Google Drive/Docs. I am curious, however... How would you develop a VLE based upon traditionally paper-based, classroom course materials? How might you go about transforming these materials into a digital fo... Read More

I tried using Presenter in Moodle this week and it worked great. Students loved the ability to interact with the slides. I was able to drag and drop right into the block and it nicely unpacked. The screen size was slightly small. Any other tips for Moodle/Presenter use?

As I now have the much appreciated free Adobe Presenter 9 software, I feel there is a great need to start seriously thinking about how to implement e-learning into my classroom. I have currently started to use another piece of 'on-line' software on the www.edmodo.com website. My students overwhelmingly like using this, and it is my intention to combine this site with Adobe Presenter 9. This method of getting students involved in an interactive way will, I'm sure, benefit their learning, and allow them to... Read More

Hello, I found a great educational aid by Thomas Payne for learning the basics of Dreamweaver (ACME Dreamweaver CC Basics).  Now, I am looking for the next step, preferably in a downloadable PDF format like the other one, to learn more about Dreamweaver beyond just the basics.  I have have found several tutorials that review the same basics.  I did download the Adobe Dreamweaver PDFs, which do not go much farther.  Any pointers? Ultimately, I am wanting to design a webpage that include... Read More

So I've been digging deep into this whole issue and trying to understand things... Thought I'd share what I've learned.  In wordpress, there's really no difference between posts and pages on the technical level. As a matter of fact, Posts, Pages, Menus, Attachments/media, and your revisions/drafts of pages and posts are all the same as far as wordpress is concerned... just info put into a box.  In all actuality, everything is a post. The new additions we have in wordpress today (menus, attac... Read More

What do you think about e-Learning (Online) courses? Are they better than Traditional classroom courses? Should schools move away from Traditional classroom courses? Should schools move to a Hybrid based course where students meet in class once a week, and then complete their classwork online?
