Material Detail

The Track Star

The Track Star

TrackStar is an on-line interface that helps instructors organize
and annotate Web sites (URLs) into lessons. The list of
resources acts like a table of contents and remains visible
throughout the lesson allowing the user/student to easily browse
through the lesson and stay on track. It can be used to create your own easy-to-use Web lessons and presentations or you can find and
use ready-to-go lessons created by other educators.

This provides a SEQUENCE to the URL's you may want students to review. The
assignment and assessment components, however, are missing.

Technical Remarks:

The web pages open within a frame, with teacher comments at the top and the
navigation structure at the side. Using this with frames requires a large
screen! However, a text-based option with sequential links is also available,
but then students must be taught to use the back button to return to the
assignment.
