Edutools for e-Learning CommunityBy Teachers.Net News Desk
The Edutools website offers a unique service for the education community. They provide “independent reviews, side-by-side comparisons, and consulting services to assist decision-making in the e-learning community.”
Visitors to the site will find that Edutools compare reviews of “CMS” (Course Management System) and “OCEP” (Online Course Evaluation Project), as well as look at “Projects”. Looking at the OCEP section of the website, visitors can choose to view the course by type (such as AP or college) or by discipline, or provider.
Alternatively, visitors can look at all the courses at the same time. Once a method is chosen, visitors will be able to view several pages of information about the course, including “Course Developer and Distribution Models”, “Scope and Scholarship”, “User Interface”, “Assessments and Support Materials” and “Communication Tools and Interaction”. Each category has subcategories, and comments by OCEP.
The CMS section has undergone a more community-oriented revamping, and now users of the products may submit reviews of the products if one hasn’t already been given.
