Google Cloudcourse is not a learning platform
"CloudCourse is a course scheduling system. ” — Google Code.
Not a learning platform. (as claimed by this post)
C’mon people, just because something is a web based tool that can be used WITHIN a learning platform doesn’t mean it IS a learning platform. Educators are already confused enough with companies offering them learning platforms that don’t do what a learning platform should do according to Becta(RIP) and Wikipedia.
Obviously a lot of people are still confused to what is a learning platform. I recommend you watch this video.
It is pretty much irrelevant for Primary Schools, I will try to find a creative way to use it in a primary but don’t hold your breath…
I am waiting on a call/email from Irwin(from the CloudCourse team) who will hopefully disagree with me and prove me wrong.
Does Cloudcourse compete with Frog, Moodle & other learning platforms? No.
