To facilitate our P2PU course, I'm going to demonstrate how I use the Web Tool WikiEducator to create Learning Resources (This is only for demonstration purposes and I encourage you to choose your own Web Tool). WikiEducator is an international community of educators collecting and developing open education resources that can be freely reused and remixed. It is currently built on the robust, scalable, and widely-deployed MediaWiki software. The use of instructional devices (Objectives, Case studies, Reading Activities etc.) from the 'e-learning XHTML editor' (eXe) can be used as microformats in the Mediawiki software. “As the technology associated with learning objects matures, the vision of reusable content, inter-operability and scalability becomes more important”
One category of resources suggested by the community is a toolkit. This involves a collection of "tools", resources and guidelines to accomplish a specific task or project. It is more comprehensive than a guidebook, because it contains the "tools" required for the task.
Step 1: Describe your learners -- who is the target audience for your teaching resource?
Step 2: Specify what your teaching resource will teach -- what should the learners be able to do after studying or working with your teaching resource?
Step 3: Identify and describe the characteristics of your resource -- do the learners need a tutorial, or a workshop or a study-guide?
