Participants need to be conversant with the use of a personal computer, the internet and also wordprocessing application. It is important that some thought is given by the participant on a potential "course" or at least subject that they would like to use as an example for development during the course of the week.
It is also important that the participants come prepared to present their particular school/organization situation and what they require out of this course. A powerpoint presentation is suggested but not mandatory.
The objectives of the course include:
. Demystifying e-learning and making it accessible to even non-technical persons
. Hand-on using of several tools that together create different types of e-learning pathways
. Sharing of experiences and success stories
. Showcasing innovative projects and uses of e-learning from all over Europe
AcrossLimits will be holding these set of courses for the 6th year running and thanks to the success of the previous years we will be adding new elements and new tools. Further to our involvement hands on in the European e-learning community and are running several projects in this area from both the Research and Educational programmes using innovative technologies like Web 2.0, avatars, augmented reality and audiovisual movies.
The methodology during the course will be a mix of pedagogical explanations coupled with hands-on practice of tools to allow teachers and participants to get as much experience as possible in using various tools that help in the creation of holistic e-learning environment.
The areas focused on include both transferring course materials to online modules, doing tests & quizzes online, simulations and games, multimedia, creating information reference materials and educational communities.
Detailed and practical ideas of how to blend traditional and online courses will be given throughout using the examples from the real participating attendees.
The tutors will keep in touch with the individual participants and also create a mailing list between all of the course attendees in order to be able to continue sharing experiences and work even after the course finishes
