New site design and MASLO news

If you’ve been to the Academic ADL Co-Lab website before now, you’ve likely noticed that we’re in the process of giving the site a pretty major overhaul. The new look is simplified and hopefully makes it easier for you to find the AADLC content or resources that you’re looking for. All of the content from the old site is still available via the archive.  However, since our role has shifted since integrating with University of Wisconsin-Extension’s division of Continuing Education Online and eLearning, we’re redesigning the site to more accurately reflect our current approach to research on and design of digital tools and systems for formal and informal learning.

You might also note that there’s a link to our current project, the Mobile Access to Supplemental Learning Objects (MASLO) system, at the top of the page. You can find more details about MASLO by following this link or the one at the top of the page. We have successfully completed a fully functioning prototype of the MASLO system and we are actively recruiting participants to help us test and refine MASLO. If you are interested in getting involved with the MASLO project, just contact us and we will help you getting started.
