Drawtivity authoring system now available for beta testing

I am very pleased to announce that the Drawtivity authoring system is now available for beta testing.  This means you can now create yourself an account and start creating and using your own Drawtivity activities.  I am looking for feedback on any and all aspects of the authoring process so please do have a go and let me know how it goes and how it could be improved!

To start go to the Drawtivity system home page and create a free authoring account.

Below is a short (5 minute) overview of the authoring process to help you get started.

Webducate project wins Talis Incubator for Open Education funding

Talis-Incubator logoWe are very pleased and excited to announce that the Webducate project to create an e-learning authoring tool called Drawtivity has been awarded funding by the Talis Incubator for Open Education. This project aims to create a new form of web based authoring system that offers functionality to facilitate the open reuse and adaptation of all authored activities.  Drawtivity activities themselves will involve the participant marking out a line or area on an image and then receiving feedback on the accuracy of their attempt through seeing a correct answer and a percentage accuracy score.  Watch this space for more information soon.
