Wow… I came across something very interesting today while going through my rather inactive Vimeo account… The final presentation for my university thesis that I did with Pallavi Sah back in 2010!
The thesis is titled ‘interactive online teaching and learning’ and it uses HTML5 to build a highly interactive teaching/collaboration tool for students and teachers. I am not sure where the source code is but it’d be nice to get my hands on it sometime. Till then, be sure to check out the video below!…
On friday Pallavi Sah and I presented our ideas for our thesis on online teaching and learning to our supervisor and assessor. For those that are unfamiliar with our topic, it is about looking into ways to integrate HTML 5 features such as the video tag and the canvas tag into a online learning environment. A way to summarise it would be to describe it as merging the concepts found in facebook and YouTube with forums.
To bring you up to speed with what we have done, here is a Prezi
which outlines what we have done and what we are going to be doing over the coming weeks.
