Examples of e-content

What are digital materials that you can consider as e-content?   This is the question that I ask some of my colleagues.  There are variety of answers from them.  But, I summarise the examples in the given table below.  

Type of digital material Examples
Social media Instagram post e.g. cooking demonstration etc., Facebook post (but you have to make your Facebook public) and such.
Blog people.utm.my [e.g. you write instruction that you use for Active Learning activity in your class that you share on your personal webpage]
Document Sharing Google docs, Google forms etc.  that you share the link with others
Collaboration tools Padlet or Prezi that contains notes and activity that requires students to collaborate with each other.  Example: Research Methodology class
Learning Management System Flipgrid (Example: Human Development class), Acadly
Gamification Set of questions that you have created in Quizziz or Kahoot! (examples) that you share with others [You need to set the questions as PUBLIC].  Example: Educational Psychology class 
Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Any material that you develop with others that you share through online
OpenCourse Ware (OCW) Digital materials that you copyright and share for common usage
Mobile Apps I have no idea on this
Computer-mediated reality I have no idea on this

Ops…. I forgot to put examples for Video based learning.  Sorry.  For video based learning, if you have a video or use video that YOU CREATE yourself for your teaching and learning activities, it would be considered.  If you ask your students to create videos and they upload on Youtube (using their own account), it is not counted as video based learning.

So, this year (2020), I challenge myself to learn one video making/editing using whatever format (offline or online – I find that offline is a bit trickier).  So far, I have tried Moovly, Powtoon, and Biteable.  Each has its own unique features.  I am just an amateur to review those things.

Here are some of the videos that I have created so far

  1.  Think-Pair-Share (Moovly)
  2. Sternberg’s theory of intelligence (Moovly)
  3. Cattell’s theory of intelligence (Moovly)
  4. Spearman’s theory of intelligence (Moovly)
  5. Thurstone’s theory of intelligence (Powtoon)
