Student-centered do-it-yourself Learning Management 151a syllabus at the 6th eLearning in Action conference at the Sharjah Higher Colleges of Technology, "an event where teachers, eLearning developers and educational technology specialists from HCT and other educational institutions convene to share, connect, discuss and learn about the best ideas and technologies for eLearning;" see: Flexible creativity is achieved with DIYLMS do it yourself LMS using a wiki portal for course information and links, Google Docs for student writing and feedback, and blogging for students to showcase their work.
Both contexts have required me to develop or adapt viable courses quickly, effectively gauge learner response and interest, and adjust materials on-the-fly to better meet learner needs.
Components include a wiki portal for course information, links pertinent to course content and management, and screencast and other tutorials. Google Docs are used for student collection of assignments.
Teacher feedback can be given in-class directly on real-time, interactive 151a syllabus of student writing for all to see via in-class projector, and for individual students to follow right there on their laptops, whereas effective feedback can be given between classes via a medium where it can be immediately seen, day or night, when students are revising their work.
Another component, blogging, is used to showcase student work. I also use etherpad clones for certain classwork and Jing to create annotated screen-capture and screencast tutorials. All of these tools are free and work through institutional firewalls.
In this presentation I will share anecdotal data gathered through writings from both sets of students. My presentation was on March 31, at The slides are here: The one on March 13 was given to around 50 Erzincan University Civil Aviation students and was prepared and delivered via a wiki forming a part of a DIYLMS do-it-yourself learning management system based at http: The talk produced an article entitled "Turning a 3-hour face-to-face seminar into an opportunity for extended online blended learning" which I published first as a blog post and then in two different versions in two publications: The blog post was moved from its dedicated Posterous site to: Turning a 3-hour face-to-face seminar into an opportunity for extended online blended learning.
Learner-centered do-it-yourself Learning Management Systems. I also had a presentation accepted on "Learning2gether: Wiki-based worldwide teacher professional development" Abstract: Learning2Gether is a wiki where teachers organize free weekly online professional development seminars.
Presenters and participants range from expert to those merely interested in the topics. Sessions are recorded, and a growing archive of recorded resources is accumulating at the associated podcast site. A crucial aspect of the learning that takes place there is where teachers model to one another how to use Web 2.
This talk is set in the context of a greater movement of communities of online educators finding innovative ways to train one another by organizing themselves in frameworks for learning ranging from free online conferences and informal seminars to MOOCs or massively open online courses.Lab Syllabus Spring Physics L - General Physics Lab I A.

I generally upload my slides for my presentations to benjaminpohle.com so there you get recent. 3 Homework and Quizzes: Some problems will be given as a homework at the end of each Chapter.
You are required to solve the problems within a week but you are not required to submit your homework. Placement will be at Mission or Ocean CDC or CA ECE Mentor sites only.
