ECTV 511 LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Concept Map for Music 101, a hypothetical course in which students are graded in accordance with three rubrics:
1) Class participation and demonstration of a musical skill;
2) Research of a selected musical topic and presentation to class via VoiceThread or equivalent technology;
The purpose of the Concept Map is to visually present the grading process throughout the course term and how the final grade is determined.
The concept map was created using software known as Cmap which is available on line.
This is a social bookmarking page I established with Diigo for the purpose of listing and cross referencing web sites and images I researched in connection with a Moodle course I designed, Music 101. The page sets forth online references pertinent to the piano, guitar, banjo and ukulele with chord patterns, tabs, tuning and rhythm. It also bookmarks tutorials for each instrument on how to play Fur Elyse.

In this project I used WebQuest, software created by Bernie Dodge in 1995 and hosted by Zunal,org, to create a learning experience for students in the Career Explorations class at the Center for Applied Sciences. In this experience the students are randomly assigned to teams of four members each and it is their job to collaborate with each other in developing a business concept, research such concept, prepare an executive summary and a media presentation to a panel of respected business persons, the SHARK TANK. In addition to grades, the winning team will be awarded an expense paid trip to Calgary, Canada to participate in the 2019 Entrepreneurs Conference. Click on the following slide to view the WebQuest. Be sure to experience the Shark Tank which is hyperlinked in the Introduction Page.
The last assignment in ECTV 511 was to present a video demonstration of a technology presently being used in the classroom. The title of my presentation is Interactive Whiteboards as an Education Tool. Please click on the following image to view the presentation.

My Conference Paper
In addition to preparing a hypothetical course using a Learning Management System, ECTV 623 required the submission of a Conference Paper. In the conference paper which I submitted, I reviewed existing literature concerning the extent to which developers of eLearning systems and other education professionals in the eLearning environment were considering time considerations unique to the individual learner. Surprisingly, I found scientific studies and solutions outside of the eLearning industry. The results of my research and my conference paper can be accessed by clicking the following link.

3.27.19 Creation of Logo using Adobe Illustrator
Here is a copy of my Adobe Illustrator page which includes my proposed logo and a mock prototype screen for a mobile device. The assets include a picture of myself at Planet Fitness and a variety of images I collected off of the internet. I used Image Trace to turn my photo into a six color likeness as well as create the transparencies used on the mobile prototype. I used blob brush to touch up six color likeness of my photo.
Both logo and prototype are still a little rough around the edges and I suppose the image might be criticized for not including a female body builder. I watched some Youtube videos on custom typefaces but I was pretty satisfied with the Purdue “P” and the fonts provided by Illustrator.
