ATutor

Page history last edited by cleothers ward 12 years, 2 months ago

ATutor would not make a useful tool for a corporate environment, based on several factors. Many corporate/enterprise projects and systems for collaborative tools needed do not existor are very archaic in their technolory. Many companies desire the use of webinars and web conferencing as well. ATutor does not support this service.

 

One implication where ATutor would be useful would be in training and perhaps CBT for employees. The makers of ATutor designed the product primarily for it to be used in the academic sector. Colleges and high schools would benefit more from the features that ATutor offers. The interface of ATutor is mediocre at best and only offers two view points, for the student and administrator/instructor.

 

ATutor is an amazing tool for educators to use. One feature that seems to be very useful is the test and survey creation tool. This automates the test and survey creationso that issues of format and/or problems of compatibility are not an issue. It also features a translation section for 20 languages, making this a suitable tool for people of most language backgrounds. Atutor offers the instructor the ability to create polls, forums, and search friendly glossary's for students. ATutor also is useful because it aides people with diasbilities. It offers text alternatives for all visual elements and keyboard access to all program elements, which allows a blind person to listen to an entire program by using a screen reader.

 

ATutor can be quickly installed and is designed with security features. Login passwords are encrypted and if the password is forgotten, it must be reset instead of sending it to the user by e-mail. Students can also personalize their profile by adding their pictures to the forum. ATutor also has a group blog where members can post public messages to all course members or post private messages only for the instructor and group members to view.
