Creating and assessing interactive learning materials: Learning modules and mobile learning tools
February 28, 2013
|Janette Gomos Klein
In this session, we will see examples of interactive eBooks and learning modules created as part of Hunter's FITT program.
Christa Acampora's project focuses on the development of mobile learning tools and activities for one section of a large lecture course. Using iBook Author, Christa is creating two companion books for her course: an activity and supplemental text and an assignment book that guides students to produce their own iBooks in the form of philosophical journals. The books incorporate original content as well as a variety of existing digital content such as YouTube videos, podcasts, TED videos, and other media already available on the Internet. The project includes an assessment component to measure student learning and student engagement.
Christa's Prezi presentation
Janette Gomos Klein will discuss a learning module that she developed for a large lecture course in biology. The module incorporates a variety of elements, including video, outlines, figures, and mini-quizzes. Using Blackboard for the learning module enables students to review and assess their learning and to receive immediate feedback on their work.
