Composing educational resources
- For some of us, the process of composing educational resources has come a long way from a blackboard, or borrowing books from a library, or photocopying handouts, or even creating slide presentations - for others, these methods remain useful and necessary. Anyone who has had more than superficial exposure to the Internet knows that there is more information and resources available to us now than at any other point in the history of education. For most people however, accessing and knowing how to manage the Internet effectively prevents them from making full use of this opportunity. This course will guide you to accessing online resources, and assist you in deciding what educational resources you should produce, and in a way that is useful online and offline.
- The questions in this course are:
- How can we find educational information and resources?
- How can we efficiently manage all the resources that we find?
- How can we produce educational resources?
