E-tivities: Amazon.co.uk: Gilly Salmon: 9780415881760: Books. Review “At a time when higher education is struggling to take advantage of the many technological innovations available to it, this timely and thought-provoking second edition of E-tivities envisions a new way to deliver curriculum.

The book is written in a user friendly and accessible style, challenging thinking not to merely shift from ‘traditional’ teaching to technologically supported learning, but to re-think the learning process and conceptualise content and delivery differently, in an e-form.

The title of this week is 'Designing engaging online activities’, but we actually need to start a step back from that, with a question: how can we articulate and explain our learning designs so that we can share them with other people? (There are lots of reasons we might want to do this, for example for the purposes of support and critique, or for sharing your work so that others can benefit from it, or simply for your own records.)So we start off with some models of learning design.
