  • Some simple software and strategies for introducing e-learning
wikis or intranet class pages
Wikis (or intranet class pages)

A wiki is simply an easy to edit website. A wiki can be used to create an online community for your class. Things you could provide for your students include:

  • Links to resources and websites e.g. NZQA, studyit etc
  • Upload handouts, assignments, support of extension material
  • Embed videos, podcasts, slideshows
  • Discussion forums
  • Virtual knowledge walls

A blog (a blend of the term web log)is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Possible uses: practice (or summative) essays or learning journal
