The personal learning network for educators


I have used several tools for connecting students to content, to each other, and to the teacher (me). Zoho looked promising; R Campus was intriguing, and MOODLE offered the flexibility that I needed. So, I am willing to use this terrific twosome this summer with my assistive technology course students.


What have been your experiences with this tool?

I certainly utilize DropBox and like the ease of use.  I recruited a few people and increased my free storage space.  I've yet to try, but it's on my to-do list.

I have only used Zoho and Moodle in recent years.  Check out my novice-review on Zoho below:  Zoho Review in Tech Tool Talk  I used Zoho to collaborate with grad-school classmates as it is much like the Microsoft Office Suite that I have on my school-issued laptop.  It was web-based, but interchangeable.  Admittedly, I prefer Google docs over Zoho.  


As for MOODLE, I have used it as a student, but not as an instructor/teacher.  It is user-friendly and I'm much happier with it than I am  with some of the other class/course-management programs that I've experienced.


Why not try Google apps or a wiki- and let them contribute :)


Moodle has a wiki of its own - but why not introduce them to eduwiki or pbwiki...



I use Google docs/apps a lot, but was unaware that Moodle has a wiki, so I'll have to try that one day. Thanks for sharing that, Maranca. Amanda
