Beyond video. Beyond slide decks. Versal brings interactivity to online learning through customizable exercises called “gadgets.”


Drag and drop gadgets – simulations, charts and so much more - right into your course, no coding required.

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, October 4, 2013 8:00 AM

This looks great! It's currently in beta and we must sign up for an invite. I'll sure give it a try just to see how it works.

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, October 4, 2013 11:26 AM

This looks like it could add the interactivity that I have wanted in my online courses.  I'm going to give it a try!

Thank you Ana for sharing this animation video tool.  I see this being the students answer to the organization that animated Sir Ken Robinson's presentation on changing Education Paradigms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDZFcDGpL4U

On recommendation from Mrs. Akin, we have tried this app and love it! You can create custom quizzes and download class data, much like you can with a CPS system. Check it out and see how you like it! There are quizzes already created by other teachers that you can try or you can create your own.

Possibilité de présenter des images avec du texte. Avantage de pouvoir ajouter des images HD qui sont ensuite navigables dans la présentation. Avec un clic souris le texte s'efface et si l'image dépasse le cadre, on peut se déplacer dans toute sa surface

HG Académie de Rennes's curator insight, February 10, 2014 1:50 AM

Un logiciel en ligne pour monter, raconter des histoires en 7 moments clés maximum. Pour chacun de ces moments, vous pouvez intégrer une image ou une vidéo et un texte de 140 caractères maximum. Les contraintes éditoriales sont intéressantes pour forcer les élèves à organiser, à structurer leur récit ou leur reportage. On pourra ainsi leur demander de raconter un évènement historique en trois moment clés : une situation initiale, un évènement perturbateur et une situation finale. A tester !

Justement Anthony Lozac'h a testé pour vous. A lire ici : http://sco.lt/7H4SPJ

un twitter diaporama like pour une belle interface

 

visiblement une approche échangiste qui pourrait plaire aux jeunes

grosses limites : la nécessité d'avoir un compte par élève + réduit en nombre de caractères par page et nécessitant de charger des images

 

bilan : ne peut suffire à une vraie activité : nécessite d'être amélioré (visiblement beta modifiée en septembre 14)

Neat way to turn a quote or saying into a poster. Type in your text chooses a background template, and presto. You have a neat poster to hang or frame. Posters can be shared via Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook or with a link.

You deserve this taught...

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.
