Using clickstream recording to make learning visible(Link)

Magna Publications
November 2008

The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus once observed that "many fail to grasp what's right in the palm of their hand" (Von Oech 2003). For those of us straddling the fields of IT and education, we have new opportunities to measure learning—all around us. We only need to see them.

Much ado about usability(Link)

18th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning Proceedings. Madison, WI.
August 2002

Web site usability testing throughout the course development cycle saves time, reduces development costs, and ultimately results in a better learning experience for students. During 2001, a team of instructional designers, technologists, media specialists and administrators at the Penn State World Campus created a new course design template for online courses and then conducted a web site usability study to assess its new features. This paper describes the usability testing process and provides recommendations for enhancing the usability of online courses.
