Interesting site referred to in today’s edition of Kevin Kruse’s Newsletter :
- e-Learning for Kids Launches 15 Free Courses
This is a great non-profit founded by Nick van Dam. Their initial efforts have resulted in the first wave of 15 courses (math, letters, keyboarding skills), with many more to come. Spread the news to parents and teachers. If you work in an e-learning company maybe you can volunteer some services
I had a play with several of the activities – not sure I’d call them courses, rather, they are examples of some interactive, animated learning objects. I can imagine many kids becoming engaged by these – although i did get impatient at times listening to the instructions being explained. Not surprisingly, most of the first 15 developed are maths activities! Will be interesting to see where the developers next put their efforts.
