In the course, a number of different tools will be used for sharing ideas and discussing your views about assessment. Because this is an online course, and people may potentially join us from around the world, it is important that we use open technologies for our communications. As a group you may decide to use just one or two tools. Setting up your learning space, for example, using a blog provides you with an opportunity to share your views, get feedback on them and to keep a record of your learning progress. A Google Group for discussions is a good way for more regular interactions and sharing of ideas. WikiEducator pages are suggested for developing your projects on assessment.
Setting up accounts
Most websites are self-explanatory once you click sign up or register for an account, you are asked to fill in a template, sign terms and conditions and save or submit. You will also be asked to fill out an anti spam code of letters and numbers. Verification of an account is done by email, and you must verify the account for it to be activated.
