Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Tammy Moore is the administrator of Virtual Homeschool Group which is an online course co-op. Everyone there is a volunteer so the courses can remain tuition free. Online courses are a new area for home school families and instructors, but VHSG volunteers have been building and running courses for 9 years. The technology for building and running online courses is fascinating and now with the monthly subscriptions is affordable too. Co-op leaders and instructors, creative parents that love edtech and creating their own interactive lessons, and students that are interested in becoming teachers or e-learning/interactive game designers as a career area will find Adobe Captivate to be a wonderful tool.

I will be teaching a free Captivate course at VHSG that will be a blend of home school teens, parents, teachers, and e-learning designers. Not only will they learn to use Captivate but they will build a full Marine Biology course as a team. It will earn dual credits in technology and science for the teens. I am working on getting a marine biologist as our content expert that will check our content for accuracy. Once the course is built, it will run as a free course at VHSG. It is a real-world project that will actually be used by other students in the future created by the students of the Captivate course.
Hurrah for Tammy!
