PowToon: AMAZING free animation tool | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

...I have discovered a new creation site. Holy wow this is a cool tool. Basically, it makes you (and your students) look like rockstars when they present. You know all of those super cool animated videos that tell a story through drawings on a whiteboard? Now you can make those all on your own with a super simple drag-drop tool. Meet PowToon. It is awesome.

Moodle Tips: Suspension of students rather than full unenrolment

Moodle Tips: Suspension of students rather than full unenrolment | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

On our training events, we are regularly asked about removing students once they have completed a course. This can be for a variety of reasons but often it is simply a case of wanting to only display current learners in the grade book and other grade data areas (e.g. quiz attempts table, SCORM attempts table, etc.) rather than all enrolled learners, as these areas can become unwieldy with pages of data relating to learners who finished the course the previous year.

This scenario is not quite as straight-forward as it may first appear. As the grade data areas always show learners who are enrolled in the course, unenrolling them from the course will also remove them from the grade data areas. This process can be achieved automatically by using the enrolment duration in the enrolment method which would unenrol learners after a certain time in the course.

While it is preferable that all learners are not displayed in the gradebook, the drawback to unenrolling the learners is that typically their data is not retained either, and teachers are therefore unable to look back at the grades for unenrolled learners. The solution here is to suspend course learners rather than unenrolling them; this will prevent course access to those learners whilst still retaining the ability for teachers to filter their grade results in the gradebook for their own analysis.

WikiWand. Une belle interface pour Wikipedia - Les Outils Tice

WikiWand. Une belle interface pour Wikipedia - Les Outils Tice | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

WikiWand est un outil en ligne qui va vous permettre de redécouvrir l’encyclopédie Wikipédia grâce à un nouvel habillage. Plus ergonomique, plus moderne et tout simplement plus beau.

WikiWand est une sorte de baguette magique virtuelle qui va transformer la vieille interface poussiéreuse de Wikipédia en un carrosse rutilant qui va mettre en valeur l’incroyable richesse de l’incontournable encyclopédie. Essayez vous allez être surpris.

Louis Levy's curator insight, August 19, 9:40 AM

Je l'ai essayé, c'est assez tentant et esthétique.

Les Interlocuteurs TICE - La Réunion -'s curator insight, August 20, 1:27 AM

Wikiwand permet (outre le rendu visuel qui est nettement plus agréable que l'interface un peu datée du Wikipedia que l'on connaît) de redécouvrir le bien-fondé des hyperliens dans un article.

En effet, en survolant (roll-over) avec la souris les liens d'un article, un résumé avec ou sans image signifiante apparaît (en pop-up) sans avoir à cliquer sur la nouvelle page.

Le texte d'un article dans l'encyclopédie devient alors réellement enrichi par ces hyperliens.


Le modèle économique de l'interface est connu, intégrer des outils tiers comme Pinterest et les autres réseaux sociaux comme relais d'existence de l'application ("rate us !").


Par ailleurs, si la plus-value est bien réelle pour une consultation des articles, le mode éditorial n'est pas immédiatement accessible. Il se situe dans le menu déroulant en haut à gauche.


Pour toutes utilisations raisonnées de l'encyclopédi libre en ligne devenue "La" référence des élèves, on pourra parcourir avec intérêt les pages qui lui sont consacrées sur le site incontournable de NetPublic. http://goo.gl/SDJDL  ;

Créer des vidéos et des présentations animées | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

PowToon est un outil gratuit qui convient parfaitement pour réaliser des présentations agréables et quasi professionnelles. On peut s'enregistrer sur PowToon pour avoir son propre compte ou se connecter directement via son compte facebook, google+ ou linkedin. On accède alors à un tableau de bord à partir duquel on peut créer des projets, les gérer et voir les statistiques de son compte.

Une riche galerie de gabarits classés en catégories vous attend et vous pouvez donc choisir un modèle ou gabarit prêt à l'emploi et que vous pouvez modifier (textes, images, minuterie) pour qu'il serve vos objectifs. Ou alors partir de zéro et construire votre propre présentation ou vidéo en utilisant la banque d'images (évolutive puisque dans tous les cas vous pouvez y télécharger vos propres images, illustrations, logos, ...) et vos propres textes en utilisant la bande de montage pour régler les animations.
