Can you provide an example of what you are trying to build?
Off the top of my head working within Google Docs is a great way to do a lot of things with Buzz. Linking things into the course is easy and it allows you to make changes to the material and it flows live into the course, so updating is super easy.
Sure! I'm building a STEM course in case we go virtual. Right now I am building the content as an assignment with a drop box for the kids to submit their work. The issues is with the text content, videos, directions it looks a little cluttered and overwhelming. If I could divide it up among multiple pages like the content available in the existing courses, I think that would make it more manageable and less overwhelming to look at.
How would you use Google Docs to build a course? I'm interested to know more about this.
I hope this link works. A video seemed much easier. The video will take a few minutes to process.
I can't wait to watch this. Thank you! I'll let you know if this helps me. :)
Thank you for this video. I had some time to watch it this morning and I am going to test it out. We are not a Google school, so I'm going to do some testing and see if I can get it to work the way I want it to. I do have a Google account, so I'm going to play and see how it works.
We are also not a "Google School," rather just a school who uses a bit-o-Google. I hope you find some ways to incorporate it and make your life a little easier. I also think it will really help you to keep things organized and allow you the freedom to make changes without a ton of extra clicks.
The current state of Buzz is that the content that is added directly through the rich text editor will be placed within a container that expands as more content is added. If you are wanting to use pages within the container, you could build it as a SCORM package that runs inside of the container or utilize your content through LTI.
You lost me with SCORM and LTI. I'm going to try to build it as an assessment with the content pages being built as passages and see how that works. That way I can add informal assessment throughout the lesson. Would there be any issues you see with using this format?
