SIG day 2008 with Eric Baber

Posted by Illya on 4 December 2008

sig-day-2008-017At the Sig day in Baden Eric Baber introduced how to use HotPotatoes and Quia to make online tasks for your learners. These are both on-line products that you need to pay for, but you can try them out free of cost. The possibilitites they allow are well worth the money.  Eric has produced a worksheet informing you of how to sign up for Quia and a further online tool called English360 (see below).

Whereas quia and Hotpotatoes are for activities for online use, English360 is very interesting for those teachers who work independantly and would like to offer on-line courses. It gives you a platform for doing this and instead of you paying the fee, it is your students who must pay the fee to access the site.

Another interesting feature of English360 is that, in order to promote sharing, for any materials that you open up for others, you get a small return for each time another teacher does use them.
