For those tracking our progress on ANVILL 2 …
We're testing our new version of ANVILL with about a half-dozen courses this term at UO, and so far it's holding up well.
But we're still making weekly changes, and the HTML 5 support for audio and video isn't there yet, so for iOS, or language programs that rely on TCasts or the Quiz tools in ANVILL 1, it will probably seem lacking in terms of technical capabilities. (You can create and edit lessons just fine on tablets and media playback works fine, but recordings will still have to be done on desktops).
The innovation, if I can call it that, is with our lesson layouts and capabilities. It's easy to create good-looking, nicely sequenced, media-rich lessons with student interactivity at just about any step of the way. They do their recordings in a new module we call "Student Responses", which can be implemented anywhere in a lesson (video can be done in iOS and a bandwidth intensive file upload).
Our goal for a version with good documentation and full HTML 5 support is now late summer. If you don't mind working with beta software, you're more than welcome to create a Teacher's account at:http://anvill.uoregon.edu/anvill7/accounts
And you can see a sample course by enrolling into LT199 Prototype with this code: "lt199-proto". Feedback is most welcome!
