Creating My Moodle - Prezi by Emily Button will help you plan out a fantastic course

Here's a Prezi based presentation by Emily Button which shows her process in planning and creating a great looking, fully functional and intuitive course that students will love.

 

These sorts of presentation are so important to show the thought process behind course design and Emily explains her rational in a clear and thoughful manner.

 

I really liked her:

 

Blended what we teach (CONTENT) and how we teach (PEDAGOGY) using a range of different tools (TECHNOLOGY)

 

Can anyone tell me how she managed to make those check boxes. This isnt the Task Checklist plugin is it?

 

I wonder if she could autolink words to a glossary instead of download?

 

A super prezi too...
