Writing Online Training Tutorials

This individualization is the strength of computer tutorials: they provide content at
an individual pace and place: training when you want it and where you want it.
An “onlinetutorial is different than live tutoring because it has no human beings

Online Teaching and Learning shows how learning through the internet depends on complex human interactions for success. The text uses sociocultural theory as its foundational stance to empirically examine the dynamics of these interactions. It seeks to understand meaning making in all of its social, linguistic and cultural complexity. Each chapter examines how it is that culturally and historically situated meanings get negotiated through social mediation in online instructional venues. It extends the ways we think and talk about online teaching and learning.

Activity Theory is a tool that can help make sense of the complex changes taking place in higher education because of the integration of technology. Unlike other theories, it allows for a focus that includes elements in the social, cultural, and historical setting in which the technology is used. In addition, it supports consideration of the practices of individual students and educators as well as practices at the institutional level. Activity Theory Perspectives on Technology in Higher Education presents a compelling theory that will be useful for researchers, academics, policy makers, administrators, and instructors interested in understanding and controlling the shifts that are occurring in education due to the integration of technology.

This volume addresses several concerns: What labor, workplace, and technology issues should composition as a profession be concerned with in the 21st century? How does technology affect the shape of academic labor? How have working conditions in composition affected the ways technology is used? The authors in this collection have turned their attention to these questions, arguing that composition workers (researchers, scholars, administrators, and teachers) have much to think about in relation to articulation of their professional identity.

The report profiles the information literacy efforts of a broad range of North American colleges including: Syracuse University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Windsor, Ulster County Community College, the University of North Texas, the University of California Berkeley, the University of Southern California at Los Angeles, the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Southeastern Oklahoma University, Central Connecticut State University and Seattle Pacific University. Participants discuss how they promote information literacy at their institutions, how they win support of key faculty and administrators, and how they develop courses, guidelines, tutorials and standards. Other major issues include student assessment, instructor training, integration of info literacy into other curriculums, grants and institutional financial support, the impact of new educational technologies, and the role of learning and computer centers in supporting the info literacy effort, among other issues. Indiana University library officials discuss info literacy efforts for specialized populations, such as athletes, while librarians at the University of California, Berkeley explain their grant funded information literacy outreach program that reaches all corners of the University. University of North Texas librarians relate how they are developing special classrooms to ready themselves for the likely move towards more formal information literacy classes, while faculty at Ulster County Community College explain how the college developed a required information literacy course that is delivered through traditional means and through the college?s distance learning program. Instructional library faculty at North Carolina State Wilmington explain the political process of getting a required information literacy course approved at their university, while Seattle Pacific University librarians discuss the challenges of student assessment. As North American colleges move towards mandated information literacy courses, this study can help information literacy coordinators to reduce the time and effort involved in developing courses and tutorials, and assist them in dealing with in-house politics and in finding useful institutional models and best practices.

The #1 guide to creating effective online documentation is now updated and expanded to reflect the latest technological advances, including multimedia. "...online documentation is a different medium, as different from books as television is from radio or movies from novels. This edition treats online documentation as the new electronic medium it is." -William Horton Written by an internationally renowned pioneer in the field of technical communication, this is an incomparable guide to the art and science of creating online documents and documentation systems. Rather than concentrating on any one particular program or operating system, William Horton cuts to the heart of effective human-computer interaction and extrapolates a set of universal principles that can be applied to any form of online documentation-from messages, menus, and help files, to computer tutorials and hypertexts. Maintaining an end-user's perspective throughout, he guides you step by step through every crucial design decision without ever losing sight of the final goal-clear, effective online documentation that people enjoy using. Proven techniques that help reduce support and training costs for software products, eliminate the need for paper documentation, make programs more appealing and easier to use, and more * A practical, hands-on approach, supported by the latest research and supplemented with dozens of case studies and illustrations * Includes new chapters on multimedia and computer-based training * Comprehensive coverage of all online documentation media-words, graphics, animation, and sound * Updated information on organizing and structuring documents-with examples from Windows, OS/2, and Macintosh interfaces

Taking Flight With OWLs examines computer technology use in writing centers. Its purpose is to move beyond anecdotal evidence for implementing computer technology in writing centers, presenting carefully considered studies that theorize the move to computer technology and examine technology use in practice. Writing centers occupy a dynamic position at the crossroads of computers and composition, distance education, and composition theory, pulling ideas, theories, and pedagogies from each. Their continuing evolution necessarily involves increasing use of computer technology. The move to computer technology so far has occurred so rapidly that writing center staff and administration have not yet had much time or opportunity to study how and when to infuse it into their programs. The need for this collection is evident: Writing center practitioners have long discussed their roles in relation to their supporting institutions; now they are challenged to explore--even reinvent--their roles as computer technologies transform centers and institutions. In exploring varied stages of technology-infusion through field-based accounts, this volume offers readers an important and unique resource.

While posing important questions about how learning proceeds with new technologies, this volume demonstrates how teachers captivate the imagination of learners, from school children to postgraduates, by providing real-world purposes for language. The authors are from educational institutions in many regions of the world, and describe technology use from the lowest levels, such as word processing and scanning, to high-end multimedia and interactive communications through voice and video on the Internet. Technology is perhaps the best means to creating an environment conducive to language learning. Technology can support teachers in making language learning faster, easier, less painful, and more engaging, and helps create an optimal language learning environment. Learning Languages through Technology reflects the many and varied ways teachers are currently using computers and the Internet and provides a rich resource for both novice and expert educator. The volume is divided into four sections: Language Development Online: Skill Building through Technology Content-Based and Task-Based Learning: Collaborative CALL Authentic Audience in a Web-Based World Constructivism in Professional Development Features throughout the volume are helpful to pre- and in-service teachers: each chapter opens with a preview of ideas to ponder before reading, and each of the four sections begins with a preview of the chapters and concludes with a thought-provoking issue in technology and pedagogy. Follow-up questions for class discussion, further research, and activities appear at the end of each section, leading readers further into the discussion of the role technology plays in learning-both currently and in the future. Appendices list the tools, software, and Web sites helpful in using technology with learners.

Published in 1998, Wiring the Writing Center was one of the first few books to address the theory and application of electronics in the college writing center. Many of the contributors explore particular features of their own "wired" centers, discussing theoretical foundations, pragmatic choices, and practical strengths. Others review a range of centers for the approaches they represent. A strong annotated bibliography of signal work in the area is also included.
