The conversation below is an effort to blur the boundaries of my online course to expose my students to the world “outside” the walls of our online course, and to invite the world “in” to our course to enhance our current discussion on how to engage online learners. This activity also serves as an example and model of an activity i am using to “engage” my own online students in this course.
This is a presentation on my online course ETAP687 using a tool called prezi. You can also view it from here.
To activate the presentation, just click on the arrow in the center of the screen (you may need to wait a little while it loads). To advance through the presentation, use the forward arrow that appears on the lower right corner of the screen.
The ability to embed the prezi in a blog is new – just announced yesterday. So i am testing it here.
