I can see the light…

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

As the weeks have passed my group (Stephanie and Twana) and I have been working away at making our medical terminology course prototype. I have blogged about this in several other posts along the way and feel we have kept a steady pace to get this done.
As this week fasted approached, we are in the final stages of tweaking and editing.  As Nancy has mentioned in her blog, I can also relate as I may have started to lose energy, interest, or both. This could be because life can get in the way at times. However, I have found this assignment practical and very relevant.

Since the first week of this assignment, when I initially posted of our plans, I thought I had a handle on how I wanted this prototype to look. I wanted to make this a project that would be meaningful for my learning but also meaningful in my day to day work. However, after learning about the different platforms and finding the one that would work best for us, we modified our plans from moodle to canvas. The three of us have blog posts that explains our reasons for this decision (Melinda’s, Twana’s and Stephanie’s). Moreover, I wanted to use moodle because it is the LMS platform that we use in my job. I thought creating this assignment within that platform would be most valuable and transferable. However, we found it difficult to navigate and the mission was aborted. Below is my powtoon clip that I had so much fun creating to announce we had decided to change our minds.


This was the first of many decisions that required changes along the way. We attempted to try many different tools and strategies to produce the course we all envisioned. As I

Just as Liz has mentioned in her blog this week, the beginning of a longer final countdown is on. Our final learning summaries are fast approaching as well. I am fortunate to also be working with Twana and Stephanie on this as well. I am ever so grateful for Twana’s organization and planning ahead, because we also started thinking and working on this at an early stage. We are planning a group meeting this weekend to finalize our ideas and start to put this plan into action. We as a group are excited to produce and focus more on a great final learning summary now. I have heard so much about this assignment and have even watch many amazing ones produced by my peers. The pressure is on for sure!

What are you plans for your summary of learning? Have you thought about it? Any tips or tricks for the new kid on the block? Should New Kids on the Block be part of my learning summary? Here is a hint to what we might be up to for our learning summary!!

  1. So funny – I have the same title and the same type of opening image for my blog post this week. I thought about changing it after I saw yours because I didn’t want to look like a copycat – but I have changed my mind. I will just simply tell you that I created mine before I ever saw yours – so you will know 🙂 It’s great to see that light – isn’t it !

  2. Our entire team has worked incredibly hard on both our prototype and our summary of learning. We have learnt a lot on this journey, usually more from what we have done wrong or struggled with then what went smoothly and came easy to us. I too am looking forward to tweaking everything this weekend and hitting submit!

  4. Melinda, I definitely feel your Moodle pain! I too chose to go with Moodle as it was a platform that si used by my work. I also have experienced some growing pains with trying to make it do what I want it to do. Grrr. It is great to see that your group was willing to change gears and move to Canvas. Whatever platform you choose, the content will be there, and the students will of course benefit. Good luck to you! By the way, love the Powtoon video!
