Learning to SPLOT

SPLOT stands for “Smallest Possible Learning Online Tools”. These are WordPress-based tools for teaching and learning which do not require accounts or logins for users. Available free to any educator in BC higher ed through the Open Ed Tech Coop, SPLOT applications include the SPLOT-Writer (primarily for writing and publishing); the SPLOT-Collector (for collections of images); and SPLOT-Box (for audio and video content). In this session participants will explore existing SPLOTs from TRU and elsewhere; explore features and functionality of SPLOTs; brainstorm how SPLOTs could be used for their specific course or project; and learn about what supports are available at TRU and through the Open ETC for those who wish to use SPLOTs or learn more.
