Instructional Technology Jewels

by: Janet Russell and Mark Pearson

The authors integrated four technology tools into a course to showcase their pedagogical usefulness. These were Course Compass, a web-based, course-management system; Moveable Type WebLog, an Open Source blog; recorded verbal critique, an evaluation of student projects recorded verbally and then web archived; and Calibrated Peer Review; a web-based, peer-graded writing tool. They outline why and how they use these technologies, discuss their experiences, and provide links to examples.
