For the most part I addressed most of the questions for week 4 in week 3. I had already read the entire text chapter during week 3.
Prezi – I love, love, love it and wish I had a bit more time to play there. Well, that is what winter break is for right? Here is my first Prezi on the musical influences of rock and roll.
HTML – I agree with some of the others in the POT group that I don’t think this is entirely necessary for all online instructors. So many of the new tools available are very intuitive to use such as WP, Prezi, etc., that knowing html may not be necessary. However, it might be helpful to at least have a way to read the code to determine if something has gone wrong with a post. In music writing software, I imagine it would be a nightmare to decipher and I’ll leave it to those experts in html to assist for now.
From Chapter 3: – My post on week three has the points I found the most interesting from this chapter. UPDATE: While designing a new course or editing an existing course I would like to move my beginners questionnaire number from15 to closer to the middle of the scale by providing students with more opportunities to be more independent. I am already including more discussion forums where the students ask and answer their own questions (with my editing eyes present). I would like to try more collaborative assignments for future online courses.
