Salamanca López, Manuel Joaquín (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
Since the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) began to become a reality in the 90s, much has happened in the design of those computational tools that process, store, synthesize, retrieve and offer information represented in the most varied form.
Some examples of resources created to date are the digital blackboard, blogs, podcast, the virtual campus, the webs … In this line, we believe necessary focus on the presentation of some applications relevant to the teaching of the Diplomatic, such as are Moodle, Claroline and Joomla. Means for collaborative and virtual teaching. For this reason will be displayed real cases, that will take us from the content design until his application on the web.
For this reason will be displayed actual cases. As an introduction, we will present a design proposal content, which, as a minimum, will have to focus on four areas: bibliography, theory, support material and annexes.
The bibliography will be dealt from two points of view, general and particular. This set of data will be useful for the student, once completed the lesson, and encourage self-learning.
The theoretical theme will develop each of the points contained in the syllabus. Here we must take into account two aspects: the writing and its amplitude. The first will have to be direct and intelligible. In this line, the extension of the syllabus may complicate their assimilation. An avalanche of data will hamper the reception and understanding on the part of the student, not having enough time to do this. We must not forget that the virtual teaching, in the same way as the classroom, consists of a series of study hours that must be considered, and that part of their consumers are professional that exercise their activity in a specific time, choosing this type of learning by the freedom to face his apprehension.
Support material will be a list of online resources to complement the information provided previously and that allows students to interact with the contents of the proposed sites. This tool can be structured in different blocks: 1. Links (websites, blogs …). 2. Publications and teaching material (HTML, PDF, powerpoint …). 3. Videos. 4. News.
Finally, the appendices or attachments will be reading that the tutor considers opportune to rise onto the platform for download or case studies for resolution and consequent evaluation.
Then proceed to the presentation of three recent examples and real. First, we will focus on the virtualization of a subject of the degree in History of the University Complutense of Madrid, entitled “Written sources and numismatic”, through their implementation at the virtual campus in accordance with the Moodle environment.
Second, we will go into the development of a course entitled “Diplomatic for archivists,” taught at the Documentation Sciences Foundation (Spain) through the Claroline software.
In the end, we will check the operation of the website “REDCID. Iberoamerican Portal of Information Science and Documentation”, whose work platform is essentially composed of three groups of applications: Webinar, Moodle and Joomla, which have been improved with the inclusion of resources to measure. We’ll test their functionality and versatility, presenting two examples.
First, we will make mention of the formative activity “Document modern and contemporary: Palaeography, Diplomatic and Archival “, 100 hours of duration. Second, we will have the opportunity to see its usefulness for the celebration event, case of the “I Virtual congress of didactical innovation at the service of teachers and professionals in science documentaries”. Also present other general benefits that contains the web.
