Mediabird allows students to document and review their study effort using a collaborative notepad. The Web2.0 application allows for taking notes on a personal notepad. A virtual text marker allows the students to highlight their notes and ask questions about the highlighted parts. The sharing feature allows study groups to share and discuss their notes as well as questions they have created. By-and-by, the students collect answers to the questions. Pairs of questions and answers are collected in a card box that allows for memorizing the important facts later on (e.g. for an exam or presentation). The program is also available as a Moodle activity.
HAL-300 is a system that implements asynchronous communication between teacher and student for distance courses and automates the execution of actions that must be performed by the teacher, enabling the teacher to concentrate on the creative activity of individualization. This improves upon many e-learning systems, which are not prepared to deal with the unique situation of a student seeking distance education, resulting in courses that contain learning activities that are not contextualized to the reality of the learner. This software was created to realize a methodology of distance learning in which the teacher acts as an adviser to the study of each student, understanding their needs from asynchronous dialogs, enabling the creation and selection of content and teaching activities that are contextualized to the reality of the learner.
