EDUCAUSE Live is offering a free one-hour presentation titled Widgets: The Slicing and Dicing (and Splicing) of Sharable Learning Content.
Your host, Steve Worona, will be joined by Mark Marino and Susan Metros, and the topic will be "Widgets: The Slicing and Dicing (and Splicing) of Sharable Learning Content."
Educators have been searching for ways to modularize and share educational content since the inception of online learning. However, for reasons both cultural and technological, the academic community has been slow to accept past attempts to support learning through the use of reusable, stand-alone, digital assets. With the advent of Web 2.0 technologies, widgets, along with a new generation of web-based and mobile content aggregators, provide the key to successfully packaging and delivering web-based educational content. In this Webinar, Marino will share how the production of portable course content in widgets has opened his writing course, and Metros will discuss ways to work with information technology leaders and university administration to deploy and promote widgets as an innovative and supportable learning technology.
