G’day and greetings from Australia

It has been suggested that I enter my work in the competition. Please explain why uploading our intellectual property onto the Articulate website is the only way we can submit a presentation. Why can’t we just submit a URL like this
which is a public website where the work resides? This enables both the judges and others to see the work just as easily.

Hi Allan-

Thanks for submitting your URL! It’s no problem to share your URL here for entry purposes, but if we declare your course as a prize winner, we’ll want to host it in order to control the quality and speed of the playback on our servers.

Thanks Gabe

I’m sure the University will give permission for that to happen should I win … nice problem eh :-)

I’m not sure as many people will be as interested to have a look at an entry submitted as URL linked presentation unless there is a descriptive paragraph like those entries uploaded to your servers.

Thanks Allan

Podcasting is one of the ‘hottest’ subjects in Learning and Teaching at the moment. However there is not a lot of research and information yet on how to design and produce educational podcasts i.e. podcasts that teach. This learning module called “From Podcasting to Learncasting” does just that. It also introduces a creative “Podagogical Framework”. Please experience the module and submit the online evaluation at the end to help develop this important area of learning with technology.
