Today we navigated our way through LMS……… Learning Management Systems. These are a must in educational settings these days. The remote access capabilities allows students 24 hour connection to their course or learning requirements. How I wish this was available in my day!!! Web CT is Victoria University’s offering and I have already utilised its capabilities.
The bulk of today’s tutorial centered around BLOGS. I did not realise how many people view and create BLOGS. I love the way they provide the opportunity for instant publishing and freedom of speech. As an educator, I am also very keen to explore their possibility as a teaching resource. They are a useful way of uniting specific tutorial groups. They could generate discussion and clarification of the subject and empower students to use each other as a resource.
My own blog has started to take shape. Today I learnt how to create a hyperlink and I also added an image to accompany my text. I am looking forward to decorating it and learning more of its capabilities.
