Leanna K Johnson's curator insight, February 18, 2013 9:24 AM

"For larger tasks, create group roles.  Decomposing a difficult task into parts to saves time.  You can then assign different roles.  A great example in my own classroom was in science lab, fifth grade student assumed different roles of group leader, recorder, reporter, and fact checker.  The students might have turns to choose their own role and alternate roles by sections of the assignment or classes." --Miriam Clifford

 

I have found group roles to be a most effective practice. In the past, taking on a large project in the classroom was easily dismissed as too time-consuming. Now after participating several years in global contests of very large projects, I've seen how it engages and impacts all of my students in satisfying ways.

Top Open Source Learning Management Systems

Top Open Source Learning Management Systems | Collaboration with your PYP Librarian | Scoop.it
Open source Learning Management Systems have become extremely popular in recent years, but what does open source mean?

 

With the huge number of Learning Management systems available today, making the decision on which platform to choose can be quite overwhelming. Below I have written brief explanations on 6 of the best systems currently available (Moodle, .LRN, eFront, Doceos, Sakai and ATutor).

 

Conclusion

To conclude, of the six Learning Management Systems listed above, Moodle is by far the most popular, and in our opinion, the best. It has over 62 million users worldwide. On top of the features listed above, here are some other reasons we believe Moodle should be your number one choice for an open source Learning Management System.
