Become a Pro Self-publisher of High-quality Interactive Online Courses
Date Thursday, Dec 3 Time –
You will learn a bit Markdown, a simple text notation that is used for faster blogging and documentation (you can even apply it to format your WhatsApp messages), but now it can be used to create interactive online courses, slides, and textbooks. The user simply selects her/his preferred presentation format. We will show how to create narrated LiaScript courses with auto-generated spoken output, animations, quizzes, interactive diagrams and various kinds of further interactive elements. We will create cooperatively on a free and open-source online-editor (CodiLIA) and show how you can set up your own one instance. Everything is for free, decentralized, without any further costs and logins.
With your conference ticket you can attend and participate in all conference sessions. Please note though, that the number of seats for Learning Cafés and for Knowledge Exchanges are limited to allow for maximum interaction and dialogue.
