Proposal Summary: The purpose of this project is to create video clips with high quality audio recordings that exemplify language and cognitive milestones in child development between the ages of birth and five years. The project will occur in two phases. During Phase 1, video recordings will be created to provide material for the second phase. Phase 2 will consist of organizing and processing this material into easily accessible examples for use in teaching and making it publicly available.

Proposal Summary:

The primary objective of this project is to develop a web-based interactive teaching module that will provide students with educational multimedia content including a three-dimensional platform for studying important anatomical and physiologic features of the human larynx. The student will be able to name all the skeletal and muscular components of the larynx and identify important features of its use during voice production.

Proposal Summary:

Instructional technology and multimedia have recently emerged as a vital component of language teaching and learning. To put it most succinctly: some texts are too hard, so traditional tasks based on them are too difficult. Familiar course management systems (CMS's) such as Blackboard and WebCT offer only a partial solution. Because the interaction types implemented in such systems severely limit the creativity of instructors, complex content areas and fascinating web sites frequently evanesce into a vapid series of true/false or multiple-choice questions. 

We propose to create a flexible authoring tool, ObjectMover. This tool will allow instructors to create visually stimulating interactions that learners can use to capture essential components of a web-based text or a streaming video.

Proposal Summary: With programming support from Academic Technologies I will develop two web-based tools for instructional multimedia. The first, Drill Designer, is a set of subroutines to handle practice item queuing and data storage. It allows instructors to easily create practice activities to maximize retention. The other, Response Analyzer, is a collection of subroutines for comparison of learner response text to correct answer text. It can handle all combinations of spelling, punctuation, and capitalization errors, thereby allowing leniency in recognizing typed responses.
