Last week I created the first pages for the Learning Centre website. Visit Otago Polytchnic Website and look under ‘studyhere’. These pages will provide online help in a variety of content areas. There are many links out to other websites on the net and many of the pages will link to the courses I have been building in wikieducator. The course Develop skills for tertiary study will provide the majority of the links. As I build my skills in editing in Typo3 (the cms of the OP website) I will modify and hopefully improve the Learning Centre pages as I go.
The Peer Tutor training course is complete and I have posted the last assignmnet to the Blog. I must report that I found using a blog and a wiki to teach an online course pretty much trouble free, however most students never managed to set up an RSS feed.
The two courses ‘Improving your Literacy and Numeracy‘ are developing nicely, with William Lucas currently building content for the Literacy module. Also a number of OP staff are starting to collaborate on creating the course ‘Computer Literacy Resources’
So to conclude this post, I feel as though the progress rate has tripled since receiving the Typo3 training and things are starting to fall into place nicely.
