Course Description

Many people find it much easier to visualize concepts and information by capturing text notes, files and images etc. and organizing them into coherent patterns and meanings, and the Web has made the presentation of visual information more accessible as part of the learning environment which facilitates more lateral thinking in students. SpiderScribe is a Web application that allows users connect and organize separate pieces of information into ideas, and when used in a learning environment it enhances the thinking process of students who have to work in a collaborative manner with other students. This free online course about SpiderScribe will take you through various elements of the Web application, from setting up a mapping function through to using the feedback process and how to share content and comments. You will learn how to drag and drop various objects such as images, text files, maps, calendars and links, as well as embed documents from Microsoft Office and PDF files, and finally how to link these objects into a coherent visual association. Account management tasks are also clearly explained such as accessing maps, exporting them as images and sharing them with peers and colleagues for input and feedback. This free online course about SpiderScribe will be of great interest to teachers and trainers looking to actively engage students in free-association and problem solving processes.
