This rather simple video, made with a mobile camera and uploaded to YouTube, is a part of the ongoing experiments conducted at the Department of Computer Science, Nesna University College. Using wikis, YouTube, Flash, mp3, web pages, and LMS is a part of the never ending work of helping our students to learn better. And yet another tool that I`m going to look into is Virtual Worlds.
There are several different virtual worlds out there on the Net, but the most popular is Second Life. This virtual world also have its own world for teens, so this is yet another ICT tool that you teachers have to check out. An older world is the Active Worlds, who are less demanding to the individual computer and therefore is easier to use in distance education, as it is by no means certain that your students have the latest in computer equipment. For my part I am going to use Active Worlds as a meeting place for chatting with my distance education students.
