Explore the use of technology in education through Ititser!
The Ititser is an online journal about the efficient use of technology in education and learning.
The author and webmaster of this website is yours truly, Greten Vicke S. Estella. I have more than five years professional experience as instructional designer both in K-12 education setting and in professonal training.
In its earlier years, Ititser focused on the use of free and open source software (FOSS) programs. The upcoming changes in 2019 will focus on programs that are often used in industry as well as on learning theories. You will notice that I already changed the categories significantly. In the next few months, I will expand the posts to include other programs regardless of their copyright status.

No to academic freeze. Our society cannot afford a halt in education. Teachers and students can change the way education works using technology. There is inequality in online education but even without the pandemic, there’s always inequality in education.
During these times of COVID-19 pandemic, schools are avoiding traditional classrooms in favor of distance education to prevent the spread of coronaviruses. For areas without electricity or internet access, distance education means printed self-learning modules to be delivered to their homes. To prevent these modules from becoming conduits of virus transmission, disinfect them.
In Adobe Captivate, a checkbox allows you to transform a shape into a button. This shape can function in exactly the same manner as buttons and click boxes, while you can still customize its appearance like any other shape.
Click boxes provide a button-like interaction between the learners and the learning module without it being visible. You can overlay it on top of a static image to make it appear that the learner is clicking a part of that image.
