Thanks to all who responded to my previous mail re suggestions. It's going
to be project based and from the responses I received and my own research
it looks like it's going to be CBT/Multimedia learning. Lots of
literature on the subject covering not just writing but learning theories,
psychology etc - should keep the academics happy! I've started gathering
literature and am about to enrol in the local university library. Basic
(proposed) structure is :
Do the initial investigation - how people learn etc
Investigate the tools available - which best meets the requirements
(info gained from (1)), plus any constraints of cost etc.
Develop tutorial/CBT/whatever(!!) - reasons for doing it as done etc.
Critique - does it work as expected; if not why not; what to change;
user feedback etc.
I've checked the archives and the main tools seem to be:
Anyone know of any others? All information on tools (web pages etc) and
any literature references will be gratefully received. As I said in my
initial posting, the real work starts now.
