I am looking to develop ‘textbooks’ for all Scottish National Exams. These ‘textbooks’ will be multimedia textbooks. Not only available only on the web but available to use on any device be it Apple, Microsoft or Google Android.
The tool I have chosen to do this in the OneNote Programme. Access to this his is now widely available via a glow login or as stand alone application at http://www.onenote.com/
Have a look at this short video to get an understanding of the process of creating the multimedia textbooks.
The bit that’s needed is the Curriculum Knowledge and some resources. That’s where I am looking for volunteers. I am going to set up a series of ‘Hack Days’ early in the new year. These hack days have been inspired by Wikimedia Hackathons and will give you (if you volunteer) space, time and support to create content. These days will be on Saturdays and Iam looking for spaces that can be used, other days could be used too if required and I hope a large number of people will take on the Hack days. Small groups of subject specialists will take small parts of the curriculum for their subject area and work together on that. Therefore by the end of the day a large amount of the content will have been built.
Why should you do this? Well I hope you realise that you are probably going to have to find or make a large amount of this type of resource for yourself anyway. If we build and share together then we can share the workload together too.
My background is in the Technologies. I am proud to say that I have had 15 people indicate that they would be willing to give up a Saturday in January to help build a OneNote textbook for Higher Engineering Science. So who else would be interested?
