The final project for this course seems to come up very quickly! The project is an individual version of the Jigsaw midterm featuring four assessment activities developed for a current or proposed online class. I decided to create four assessment activities for an online literature class for upper elementary and middle school students. The inspiration for this class, to be developed for grades 5 and 6 at the school where I currently teach, came from my friend Melissa Smith, the technology integration specialist for grades 4, 5 and 6 at another school.
I decided to use the Haiku Learning Management System to present my final. It is extremely easy and I like the look and ease with which I can move components about as I make changes to the organization of the site. In addition, when I wanted to embed my pre-course survey into the site, I discovered that SurveyMonkey’s embed code was not supported by Haiku. Even as a “free” user of the service, I received excellent support service. By the end of the next day, I had received an e-mail telling me that SurveyMonkey’s embed code was now supported and if I needed anything else to please let the service team know.
While I have not quite finished with my final, the URL is:
