Well I have now completed the Research component of the DeMOOC. Most of my research has been around revisiting tools that I have heard of before but haven’t really used much. I already have a scoop.it, dropbox and google quite extensively. But there are lots of other tools I wanted to try out.
One that I have started using again is Livebinder because I like the way I can organise everything into binders and when opened everything is tabbed for easy access. I think it would be really useful to gather elearning resources to share with students. I also use Mightybell for this purpose – it has a nice visual interface.
I wanted to revisit ARED but was unable to access through the link in the NVELS website. But now I have found that there are other rapid elearning authoring tools that I could use thanks to an awesome virtual classroom session presented by Rory O’Brien
I alos attended a webinar presented by Stephan Schmidt about Web 2.0 tools and how they can be used for learning which was great. Stephan presented several tools I have not seen before.
I spent a bit of time reading about what make a great elearning resource which was really useful as well.
So that’s my research for the moment! Never ending though as there is always something new!
