I´m going to review Fernando’s Faria AB, posted on his blog in http://mpelejadores.blogspot.com/2010/04/ppel-unit-2-task-1.html
I appreciated the references chosen by Fernando. I find the bibliography presented very complete and useful when studying the subject Online Teaching Techniques. On his annotations, Fernando gives us a short synthesis of the article, sometimes using other information to complete the article’s theme.
As an improvement, the AB could be more diversified as for the type of Bibliography chosen, instead of only articles, although, in terms of content, the articles chosen are diverse.
As for the LO, my review will be on Juliana’s Learning Object, presented here: http://julianantunes.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/online-teaching-techniques-2/
This is a very interesting presentation, with a lot of information. Sometimes, it is refreshing to go “back to the basic” and watch a more simple (technology wise) LO, but witch gives us a synthesised but quite complete understanding of what Online Teaching Techniques are.
I think this presentation could be improved with the use of graphics and more images, maybe by dividing some of the information and showing it with appealing images. There are a lot of articles and videos published on the web about this subject, I particularly like this one: http://blog.slideshare.net/2009/02/03/4-multimedia-learning-principles-that-will-improve-your-slides/
