About Me
For ten years, I have been doing research and lecturing in Universities as a cognitive psychologist. Always had a passion for e-learning (won an award for a web-museum I designed in the mid 90s). Recently, I decided to make the jump and make e-learning my main activity.

When in the UK, I went Freelance and got involved in cool projects. Most of them had to do with producing software that let kids and educators create quality and original content with limited technical skills.

I recently moved to New Zealand and now work as e-learning developer for CWA new media, an e-learning services company.

I have started programming a few simple learning activities that can be added on web pages flex labs. They are all designed to be easy to embed.Here is an example.

This is simply a matter of specifying parameter values in the embedding code (pretty much the same way youTube does). I won't be in a position to provide any reliable service for another few weeks (I am about to… Continue

Comic Strip Creator in Flex

Posted on September 28, 2007 at 5:07am 0 Comments

Tell me what you think of my Comic strip creator in Flex.

That's an early version, I am still early on in my learning of Flex. This was inspired by an ajax version at witty comics. Slow loading, I know. I need to spend a bit of time optimizing all these images as much as I… Continue

Flex to create learning resources

Posted on August 14, 2007 at 4:52pm 0 Comments

Started learning Flex. I had stayed away from Actionscript in the past. As the software I write tend to require a gui interface, I was not much enthused by the timeline and movie clip analogies.

With the move to AS3 (a proper OO language) and the introduction of a XUL like language to rapidly define the interface elements, they got me seriously consider taking the time to learn actionscript. After a few weeks looking into it,… Continue

Slideshows, 2.0 way

Posted on August 1, 2007 at 3:26pm 0 Comments

I gave a try to the slidy slideshow solution, to publish a slideshow directly in the browser, using web 2.0 technologies (in fact, strictly javascript -- see also S5, by Eric Meyer). The result is not bad at all... at least when viewing it on my large screen mac.

Check out for yourself: CoP001 -- Cognitive Psychology: A… Continue

Thanks Marielle,

I'll look at the Apps. Sorry for being too aggressive.

Hi Marielle,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!

What a great collection of web widgets you have! I've been having so much fun with them. Thanks for sharing...I will continue to spread the wealth...

Thanks for the positive feedback on my blog...I really appreciate it.

Your comic strip creator is cool. It would be fun to use in teaching dialogue to young writers. Any plans to allow people to upload their own images and/or save their creations?

Hi, Marielle! It is so rare that I run across someone with my name that I had to say hello! And I look forward to checking out your work, too.

Hey Marielle,

Thanks for the comment. I've been interested in learning objects, but havn't had much opportunity work with them, the lack of interest in mainstream education is a little disapointing. TLF looks great, how did you become invovled with the project?

A fascinating reading of your pursuits, Marielle. Some of my teachers (Virginia/U.S.) have been talking about comic strips/creation for sequence--I plan to check your link out.

Hi Marielle! thanks for your comment - I think there's definitely some bad karma in the world of Blackboard, Desire2Learn, et al. - in a sense, the professors get want they want/deserve!

what I mean is that even though it is very easy to add widgets to really enliven the Desire2Learn interface, at my school I would guess maybe 3% max. of faculty even do that much.

I now rely on blogs, web publishing, etc. for my online courses and use the VLE only for quizzing and gradebook - the widgets at least help make that less tedious to visit each day! :-)

I am enthralled by your page, your studies, your obviously extremely active "mindset"! I want to talk to you more about ideas for class work. Your website is great!!!
