Moodle course for Science Educators at the Canadian Museum of Nature

I created this Moodle project individually as a requirement for a UBC Master of Educational Technology (MET) course. As such, the structure of the content and the types of exercises were selected to meet specific course requirements. Were this course to be delivered using the Moodle, a greater variety of activities would be added. As it is, the content and reading resources in this course are valid, and are meant for an in-person training session with staff and volunteers at the Canadian Museum of Nature.

Video Capture about Video Captures

YouTube: Capture within a Capture within a Capture

I created this video to experiment with Screenr, Jing and Microsoft Expression Encoder 4. With Screenr, I catured a PPT animation I had created, which is a tutorial on how to use Vuvox. With Jing, I added a narration and with MEE4 I added music.


Video Captures for a Science Course

Videos: Polishing_Silverware      Reaction between Aluminum and Silver Sulfide      Reaction between Copper and Silver Nitrate

I created these videos for a Moodle unit on single-displacement reaction as a requirement for a course on instructional design at Athabasca University. In both cases, I used Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 tonarrate and capture animations in PowerPoint I that I had created.


Vygotsky’s Theory

This site is the result of a group effort and was created for a UBC MET course and is meant to build on knowledge gained in that course. The aim was to model the online application of Vygotsky’s theory by incrementally leading my classmates through instructions and activities. The intended result is for my colleagues to be able to apply the theory in their own work.


History of Educational Technology

The product of a team effort, this wiki was used to deliver a week’s worth of content based on Marshall McLuhan’s “The medium is the message” idea in a UBC MET course. My team was asked to summarize articles, provide learning activities and moderate discussions. We asked our classmates to read the articles, use Vuvox to make a simple slide show of technnologies they had used in their youth, form teams and  use Google Docs to summarize the “message” of different media, and discuss the week’s content in our course’s LMS.



PPT: Électrochimie

This presentation on electrochemical cells, which is entirely of my creation, is part of an online Grade 12 Chemistry course for the Centre franco-ontarien de ressources pédagogiques that I wrote a few years ago.


Grade 9 Science

PPT: Molecular_Models     Law_conservation     pH_scales

I created the presentations above for an online Grade 9 Science Applied course as part of a contract for the Centre franco-ontarien de ressources pédagogiques. Compared to Électrochimie, these presentations are shorter and generally written with less text in a bigger font for the target audience who may have difficulty absorbing too much information at a time.



Word doc: Toon  Essay providing context for the cartoon (Word doc): Case_Study_ADDIE

I created the cartoon above as part of an assignment for a UBC MET course using ToonDoo (toondoo.com). I created the title using textanim (textanim.com).


Personal Learning Environments (PLEs)

Link to introduction from my course blog: http://blogs.ubc.ca/etec522may12/2012/06/24/welcome-to-week-8-personalized-learning-environments/

The PLE blog itself: http://learningventuresetec522.wordpress.com/

This blog, the result of a group effort, was created for a UBC MET course. It contains descriptions of PLEs and activities to allow my classmates to experiment with software that they could use and introduce their own students to.


Fake company

PPT: Fake_company

This presentation, created for a UBC MET course, is meant to highlight my skills in graphic design.
