Evaluating online mathematics resources: A practical approach for teachers. (English)
Aust. Prim. Math. Classr. 11, No. 2, 8-14 (2006).
Summary: Gradually Internet-based educational resources are making their way into the school mathematics curriculum. Online resources are potentially useful compared to normal courseware because of their abundance, availability at no cost, platform-free accessibility, and wide reaching accessibility. On the other hand, a major limitation of online resources is their lack of appropriate pedagogy, coupled with poor instructional design and layout. This article discusses the development of evaluation criteria for online resources and provides practical information about some key websites. The article deals with issues associated with the interface design, navigation, and user’s control of an online resource. It indicates how evaluation forms and checklists can be practical tools for teachers to identify positive and negative design features of an online resource. (Contains 14 figures and 1 note.) (ERIC)
