Canada Moot 2013 Presentation

Canada Moot, a conference about Moodle, is taking place in February, and is in Vancouver this year. Terry Anderson and I are giving a presentation (details below). Call for abstracts ends November 10th so still time to get involved!

Title:

Confounding redundancy: LMS, Social Networks & E-portfolio Systems

Description:

This session looks at three of the most popular teaching and learning systems at all levels that used to support formal education. However, increasingly LMS, E-portfolio and Social networks each offer similar tools and redundancy can be expensive and confusing. This study examines a theoretical model developed by the authors which shows the strengths and uses of individualized, group, network and sets of learners and the tools that often work most effectively to support learning in each aggregation. The session concludes with a brief demonstration of the Elgg system developed at Athabasca.
