The first fruits of INDIe are being harvested. We had a very productive training event last week in Cartagena.
The INDIe project is one year old and a first and very important milestone has been reached: the first version of our authoring tool INDIeAuthor is available.
It corresponds to the first intellectual output of the project and was planned for delivery by the end of November 2019.
The first training event of our project was therefore organized and hands-on labs took place where 26 teachers of our partner institutions learnt to generate rich interactive learning units.
To start the event, we had the priviledge to have a session on "Design and Production of Educational Resources" by Paz Prendes, full professor of the University of Murcia and head of the Research Group on EdTech. Paz gave us very valuable guidelines and tips that authors should be aware of, when elaborating learning units. These guidelines range from choice of fonts, colors, and above all, the advice to spend enough time planning the units and the course, identifying clearly the target students, and the teaching methodology that will use the resources (flipped classroom, blended teaching, in class labs, etc...).
