Experiment One


In the fall term of 2012/13 the students enrolled in Moodle course “English for Graphic Arts” were provided with specific content focused on basics of chemistry, graphics and printing techniques. They were asked to choose a topic of their interest and expand on the theme by means of designing a Page in Mahara and presenting their project in the face-to-face sessions. Equal distribution of themes was assured.

The students created Pages on selected themes and presented them to their classmates using Mahara Page as a presenting tool. The benefits could be seen in multimedia aspect of presented material whereas the drawback was experienced with low level of repeatability of using Mahara as a presenting tool. In the following semester the students did not opt for Mahara when presenting a similar project.
