Authoring Your Interactive, Open, Online Course (BYOD)
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room King
Learn how to create interactive online courses and become a publisher of educational content. We'll get to work with LiaScript, a domain-specific language. Simplicity, diversity, and extendibility are core features of this browser-based course-authoring tool in order to give everyone access to open online educational resources. LiaScript allows you to integrate simulations, VR and nearly anything you might be dreaming about from the web, so BYOD and bring your own ideas for your course! We will develop sections; add content; add animations and transitions; add multimedia and quizzes; and create a (free and anonymous) GitHub account to upload and share your course.
