This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Web Tools for Managing Learning Resources [April 16, 2012, 4:49 a.m.]

Learning resources can in be shared, reused and remixed as Open Educational Resources (OER).  Describe how you will organize your material in a way that makes it accessible for your own development.  This is sometimes called your Personal Learning Environment (PLE) and there are four elements that manage the flow of information:   

Aggregate (collect content peoples, social networks and other online content service providers)

Remix (organize content from several different sources in different ways)

Repurpose (edit, modify or create new content)

Feed forward (send the content to subscribers and other web services)


The bonus assignment is to make it avaialbe for the rest of the world as an Open Educational Resource.

Example: I'm developing this course in WikiEducator and am using eXe to author the learning resource.  This makes it possible to export in IMS Content Package, SCORM 1.2, or IMS Common Cartridge formats or as simple self-contained web pages.
