  • What are we going to learn in Ecto 102?  
    Now that you have an idea what Ecto is all about let's get going on learning some of the more creative uses of the tool.

    This lesson will focus mostly on how to create things.  We talked about how to copy and join things in Ecto 101; well, now its time to be creative!

    Remember, anyone can create anything in Ecto, once you have created stuff you can share your genius for everyone else to explore.

    Let's move on. Click on the link in the upper right hand corner to go to the next item in the lesson.

     
  • A brief overview of Ecto!
    1. Unlocked Content
    The smallest parts in Ecto are what we call unlocked content or activities.  Activities can be multiple choice questions (MC), short answer questions (SA), web pages, flashcards (FD or FS), resources (RE), journals, files and multimedia content.  We will explain in more detail what each one of these activities are later.
     
    2. Sets
    Sets are just an assemply of activities.  The intent of the set determines if it is a test or a homework assignment.  There are a bunch of options with a set such as when the set becomes available and how the person using the set can naviagte through it.
     
    3. Assembly
    Assemblies are containers such as a folder or a lesson where you can keep activities or sets.  In other words in helps you organize the learning content.
     
    4. Groups
    Groups are a higher level organizational tool.  The one important thing about groups is that you can let other people join  your group or you can join someone elses group.  We will discuss the issues around groups in detail later.

    OK, now its time to get creative!
