Please try to answer the questions with the relation to your final project.

Week 1 : Getting Oriented :-)

by Nad

Welcome to the Creating Technology-Enhanced Learning Environments RWLD.

This is where you will find additional Readings, Watchings, Listenings and Doings (RWLD). This RWLD provides a simple method for sharing multimedia resources with students throughout the course.

Begin by completing  Learning Styles (ILS) Questionnaire
  • Learn which learning styles are your strengths. Save your results, you will use them in your introduction.
