metal:ED - Using Web 2.0 to document an elearning project


Late last night I published the first post in a new blog - metal:ED - Developing educational video resources for trades.

The aim of this new blog is to document the progress, processes and experiences of a new project we're working on in the TLRU as part of the Learnscope NSW funded project Innovation on the Ground: Seed to Harvest, which is designed to support e-learning skill development and technology use in the classroom.

metal:ED is focussed on developing a model for the production of training videos which would allow students to use computers or DVD players in the workshop to watch demonstrations and practice their skills.

As Team Mentor, I will be providing project management and support to the teachers from Metal Fabrication and Welding, as well as investigating some of the mobile delivery options.

Additionally, I will be responsible for documenting the project via the metal:ED blog. This will be an interesting experiment for us - using Web 2.0 technologies to track our progress and map out some best practice guidelines for future projects. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it!

Check out metal:ED and let me know what you think. How would you use a blog to document this kind of project?
