This eLearning Technology Compass provides another way to help you choose technology tools. Working from the inner circle towards the outer circle you will find

* Goals

* Competencies

* Performance Assessments

* Ring of Technologies

Under this visual you will also find a detailed table that lists:

* Desired Competencies

* Rationale

* Related Activities

* Potential Technologies

And the site also provides tutorials on many of the tools.

This is like a one stop shop that will help you find great tools to help students grow skills in the desired competencies.

The Art of the Discussion Prompt

The Art of the Discussion Prompt | eLearning and Libraries | Scoop.it

By Alex Joppie: Discussions are sometimes called the engine of an online course. Discussions provide an opportunity for students to engage with the course content, with each other, and with you—the professor—simultaneously, which means they have a lot of potential for meaningful learning and high retention.

 

There is no guarantee that students will really apply themselves by just creating a discussion. What you get out of a discussion assignment depends on what you put into it. Here are some tips for writing your discussion prompt, selecting your settings, and participating in the discussion.

But when it comes to plagiarizing, there is little slack given; we are all expected to understand plagiarism guidelines and what constitutes a violation. While plagiarism is never considered acceptable, there are varying levels of severity with different types of plagiarism violations. So are you wondering…
