Web-based learning effectiveness: Generations compared



What can we learn from the above slide?

Boundless Learning

I first listened, in person, to Terry Anderson last October at the eLearn conference. He's a great speaker when it comes to presenting what's the latest in learning and education and directions we should be planning towards.

One of his latest presentations is below. Enjoy.

Web-based Slide Presentations

Slide Rocket appears to be a solution for those who have found it irritating to have slides with hyperlinks to files on their storage media not work.

I will be trying it out soon but what if the Internet is inaccessible? Then, it's back to having your notebook computer with you all the time.

Nevertheless, you may first watch the video on what's it all about at the web site or how it can benefit presenters.

Top Ten Ed Tech Books

The World is Open and nine other titles are in the top ten Educational Technology books of the decade. Check it out.

A promise I made to myself is to continue my reading of Curtis Bonk's "The World is Open." Nevertheless, it will be the core reference for one of my online courses in Jan 2010.
