I’ve been working on the Extend mOOC and am currently working on the Ideate Challenge of the Technologist module. The challenge: form and build the ideal features and characteristics of how technology could address your learner/user challenge.
Since creating the Rubric for eLearning Tool Evaluation, with my colleague Gavan Watson, we’ve seen the rubric being adopted in a variety of new ways. For example, fellow mOOC peer Sarah Wendorf (Cambrian College) posted her use of the rubric in comparing H5P to Genially:
This has got me imagining new ways of engaging with rubric. It was ultimately intended to be an evaluative tool for instructors to use in quickly and comprehensively reviewing a technology for teaching and learning. While I certainly believe the 7-page PDF version is comprehensive I’ve wondered about it’s agility to offer a quick review.
With the ongoing and ever-developing goal of making the rubric super accessible and useful to instructors, I’ve been tossing over the possibilities for increasing the utility of the rubric – essentially maintaining it’s comprehensiveness while increasing it’s utility.
Is there a tool out there that will enable me to set up the rubric in a new way addressing the user challenge of needing to quickly evaluate, customize, and share their rubric reviews?
Mind-Mapping the User Challenge
The following mind-map is a first-go at brainstorming user needs when it comes to addressing the key question (above).
Over to You!
It’s been you – the users – that have inspired these ideas and I’m hoping you’ll help me expand them:
Are there other user needs I haven’t accounted for yet?
Do you know of tools that might help me build this next version with these user needs in mind?
