Moodle_UK's insight:

This plugin looks exciting and powerful for onscreen marking. "This allows a teacher to annotate and return PDF files that have been submitted by students.

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...

Useful to help engage staff, the great examples and explanation of differences between activitites help, especially when contextualised.  I hope to 'relaunch' all Moodle activities to staff through 5/10 minute webinars using our upgrade as the opportunity.
