technologyChoosing the appropriate technologies was an exciting exploration. The actual learning environment was easy – Moodle was chosen because it is easy to navigate, could be customised without too much difficulty, and could handle plug-ins. Oh, and it was free!

A key criterion when selecting the plug-ins was their accessibility within the workplace. Other key criteria to be considered included participant computer literacy, cultural and learning preferences. The inclusion of community and sharing was also identified with the idea of simulating a ‘story telling circle’. And compatibility with Moodle was critical. Those selected have included forums, blogs, Voicethread, Exabis E-Portfolio, Animoto, Gtalk and Blip TV with Slideshare and Toondoo still to be introduced.

Interactive Ochre, a Framework Toolbox, has been integral to the discussion and learning.
