Online examples

Carnegie Mellon University’s Open Learning Initiative provides free access to a number of online courses, including courses in logic, economics, French, and statistics. The basic courses are open access – instructors from other institutions can also register for access to additional tools and can use these programs in their own teaching.

I had a quick look at the logic course – the presentation of the content material is good, with basic but effective use of applets and short audio/image segements. And while online teaching is much more than presentation of the content, I’m assuming that the additional components that instructors can access include interaction and collaboration tools and strategies. I’ve registered for instructor access so look forward to finding out more.

In the meantime, for those new to how online content presentation can look, it’s worth a visit to the site.
