EU project - Simple Web2.0 platform for educators
- Web2.0ERC is an European Union education project to help educators who find ICT and Web2.0 confusing and difficult to access.
The project has built a simple web site and a set of the most popular tools (Wikis, Blogs, communications, Social Networking etc.) with clear guides on:
How to use the tools
How they can be used in education
The project is providing a simple and secure environment to use ICT for educators in their work and in their classes. The project is also looking at other Web 2.0 tools that can be used to create content, share the content and communicate.
The EU funded project Web2.0ERC platform http://www.web20erc.eu/ has been piloted with educators at every level and now needs testing and use by educators. On the platform you will find guides, videos and examples of how the platform can be used autonomously. You can register on the platform at: http://platform.web20erc.eu/login/index.php Please ensure to supply feedback to the project.
To ensure only genuine educators use the platform to make courses a verification process will take place:
1. Register on the platform (create account).
2. `Apply for teacher privileges' from the Help menu (complete the brief form)
3. You will receive an email when approved
4. You will see the, `Create a course wizard' in the Courses menu.
It is highly recommended that you read the Help for teachers in the Help menu as there will be no additional support.
In addition, a large number of resources on the use of Web2.0 tools in education have been gathered and are available on the website. These include video tutorials, academic papers, best practices, case studies and use case scenarios, and user contributed ideas (see http://www.web20erc.eu/deliverables )
