Widgets and Gadgets: From E-learning to M-learning and Beyond.
Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications, or widgets, and new devices, or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students. Education is moving from e-learning to m-learning and beyond as hybrid methods are also being incorporated to both on-land and online courses.
Dr. Lepervanche’s Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time.

Making Your Blackboard Course “Pop”
Are you or your students tired of the same old, boring online look of black letters on a white background? If so, this workshop is for you. In this interactive, hands-on workshop, you will learn how to add images, banners, sound, and videos to the announcements, content, and discussions in your Blackboard courses. Liven up your class to help keep your students motivated. In this workshop, resources will be shared that will help you with adding and manipulating images, sound, and video. Prior experience with Blackboard is helpful but not necessary for this workshop.
We are experimenting with Second Life in our courses. A SL Business Education Center is located in Florida State College at Jacksonville Island. The building has a large boardroom with a table and six screens on the walls to post images. Outside the building we have a campfire where we can meet in a circle. An interactive Likert scale allow avatars to participate in live surveys. Visit the island and get familiar with Second Life resources.
