Deanna Hutchinson and I have been working on a research project about simulations and we have been chatting about the underpinning concepts that we are working with. On one hand, we have worked with a set of definitions and assumptions. On the other, we also reflected… what is the perception of our readers.
Running a business, watching every cent you spend becomes second nature. Ensuring you get an ROI (or ROA) is critical. Building a business case is about the reality of making hard decisions about where to invest your resources. There are a lot of resources out there to support the development of a business case, so I thought I’d put some examples together to get you thinking.
A student walks into a campus. They are apprehensive about their first day as a student. There are signs telling them where to go, but they can’t find anyone to ask for help. As they walk through the bricked walls, they can see classrooms behind doors, but can see into the doors to work out if that is their room. They try to open a few doors, but they are all locked. They finally come across a door that is unlocked, when a person shooes them away.
While video (audio/visual) evidence is becoming a more popular form of evidence, the gathering of audio isn’t as common. This is seen anecdotally, through talking with assessors, and is supported by recent national survey data that showed 68% of students surveyed reported there was no use of voice technologies in their course.1 Therefore, this indicates there is an opportunity to explore the use of voice technologies in the assessment process.
Watching a whole lot of Moodlers in a room getting excited about the new things in 2.5 and 2.6 was a great way to kick off MoodleMoot. The tweets were flying thick and fast! Martin Dougiamas took us through the development priorities, I am particularly excited about an assignment annotation tool that allows annotations on a PDF as well as the updated analytics and reporting functionality. Watch out for a Moodle MOOC being run in September 2013 – it will be huge. Martin’s presentation is available on slideshare.
I’ve been talking to lots of people about Augmented Reality, and the most common question I’ve been asked is… How could we use it? So in this post, I’ll explore some ways to use AR in training and development.
