LessonSketch is a multimedia platform that enables teachers and other human service professionals to represent, examine, share, and discuss their own practices, as well as the practices of other members of their profession. LessonSketch makes it easy for users to learn from representations of practice by hosting artifacts such as videos or student work in private or public forums for viewing, annotation, and discussion, and also allows users to create their own representations of practice in the form of storyboards depicting both exemplary and routine scenarios.
Advanced users have access to a full suite of authoring tools, including highly customizable annotation environments and forum discussions centered around these artifacts, allowing them to create opportunities for their fellow practitioners to learn from the experiences and perspectives of others.
LessonSketch Collections are a library of lessons represented in various media forms, such as videos, animations, and storyboards made with cartoon characters.
LessonSketch Tools include Annotate, Depict, Inscribe, Voice, and Plan. These web-based software tools help create interactive, multimedia experiences.
LessonSketch Experiences include interactive multimedia course modules, assessments, and research instruments created by educators and researchers, and made available to selected LessonSketch users.
LessonSketch Sharing functionalities allow users to engage in experiences, contribute items to collections, and collaborate using multimedia resources with customized Groups.
