Animating SVG Files With an easy to use web platform – SVGator

Animating SVG Files With an easy to use web platform – SVGator

Source (Wikipedia.com)

This week we are looking at SVGATOR  a platform that allows for creating Animated SVG files. This type of file is entirely scalable (because they are vectors), small and 100% code-based. This equates to a  steep learning curve for complete beginners.

This is where SVGator steps up to the mark as the creators have developed a platform making it easy for anyone to make SVG animations using a familiar interface.

The platform is  web-based.  All you need to do is sign up, then   import, animate and export your SVG animations, all without touching any code !

 The website provides detailed tutorials to get you started.

Let’s get our learners into MOOCs

This week we are looking at MOOCS (MOOCs—massive open online courses).

The concept of MOOCs has been around for  many years but it was Dave Cormier, an educational activist, researcher, online community advocate and the Project Lead for Student Relations Management at the University of Prince Edward Island. He used the term “MOOC” to describe the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge course delivered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes in 2008. Over 2000 people around the world participated in this course online, for free.

So in short,  a MOOC is a massive open online course.

And it always will be.

There is always the question of developing vs buying online elearning courses.  My rule of thumb is ” horses for courses” -MOOCs are great for personal develpment of staff and if you are willing to put in the time you are sure to find a MOOC to meet your particular learning need.

Here is a list of the most recent MOOC poviders we found in our onlie search. I have put this into a Mindjet Mindmanager 18 HTML 5 map for sharing.

It is not an exhaustive list as new MOOC providers come online all the time but it does provide a quick and easy access list to the most used /known MOOC providers.

TIP: If you want a quick access link ot this list drag and drop the MOOC list URL to your desktop.

Next week I am heading off to Milan,  so we will pick up our elearning blog  the week following the 20th of November.
