Research: Based on an understanding of learning object authoring tools, locate two learning object authoring tools (free or fee-based). Link to the tools in your blog.
Answer: How might each tool be used in an online classroom? What features should an online teacher look for in a learning object tool?
- Virtual Labs– This website has several selections for free math and science interactives. It is produced by the University of Colorado. I like this website since it allows students to put into action content they read and watch. It also allows them to manipulate the interactives which I think is an important part of analyzing.
- EdPuzzle– EdPuzzle allows videos to be assigned to students. It offers formative assessment during the video to include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and constructed response. One downfall is that the link may sometimes be blocked by school servers.
I think it is important for learning object tools to offer variety to students as well being easily accessible.
