Methods of Assessment of Educational Websites

Hello, kairosnewsers:

I am working on a research project which involves learning about methods of assessing the effectiveness of e-learning tools, particularly socially-collaborative and "informal" learning tools. I am thinking community blogs, wikis, virtual worlds and such as well as platforms that combine all of the above and perhaps others. In other words, I am not interested in the type of electronic behemoths which are focusing on grammar drills and which are put out by all the textbook publishers. Here are some questions that I'd need to answer:

--design effectiveness

Topics: 

portfolios international

Portfolios, not only ePortfolios are good way of combining different challenges. In genereral the point of view of the learner, seeing his/her process of learning and the instructor, who needs the resuts for judging (grading) and planing other courses.
If you want to go beyond the level of the texts only eportfolios are a good deal. But the format, the electronic form, doesn't make the contend alone. ePortfolios can be an advantage for integrating audio, pictures and videos, for creating a picture with wider aspects. But relying on the form alone is difficult. Creating ePortfolios should also integrate the students, that are not that computer-literate, for this the combination of (traditional) portfolios and ePortfolios seems to me, an language lecturer in Asia (Japan), an appropriate way.

Still Grading Papers? Try Outsourcing!

We've all thought about it before. Usually the thought occurs when we're dog tired, underfed, our wrists splintering in carpal tunnel agony. And then we circle the four hundredth comma splice and cry, "WHY DIDN'T I GO INTO MATH INSTEAD?" Well, help has arrived. Now, for a small and highly reasonable fee, we can outsource our grading to qualified graders, all too happy to labor (I think they want food or something). Chances are, these graders have a better grasp of Standard English than we do anyway, and the comments will probably be more insightful than the red "AWK"s and "WTF??"s randomly distributed throughout a three page treble-spaced document (with 3" gutter). I can see it now--email all the papers out Friday afternoon, get "crunked," and have a set of marked-up papers ready for Monday morning. At what price, (in)sanity?
