Jane C's "Home Page" prototyping tool
Cloud created by:
8 February 2013
I am fortunate to work with a VLE that allows me to customise my Learning Room "Home Page" in many ways and without the need of a programmer (or programming skills). In designing a module to develop digital information literacy skills, I want to have a home page that models good clean, attractive design and also invites students to try out social networking platforms.
Another key pedagogical principle for this module is interaction, so group areas, up to date News areas and discussion boards are also essential, as are different methods of e-assessment. I have used screen prints of contrasting Learning Rooms - with annotations - as my prototyping tool. I could use these to elicit views from staff and students about the navigability of the Learning Room as well as its overall attractiveness.
