I am currently working with faculty from 7 different community colleges to create authentic online learning experiences. We meet weekly in a synchronous environment using Blackboard Collaborate . Each member has a Google document they use to share, brainstorm and provide feedback to and from other participants. There’s a common goal to create and authentic learning experience. However the subjects are all different creating unique, multiple learning pathways.
This type of professional development and the tools used are new to all of the participants. Allison Littlejohn describes charting, as a set of web-based tools, to support each learner to dynamically map and manage their own view of the collective knowledge. I would like to explore the use of charting to support participants as the explore authentic online learning. What machine analytic tools have you used to aggregate individual behaviours into the collective?
