The majority of theories for evaluation of the online materials and/or online courses try to assess the efficacy in numerical terms: how many students participate, how many students respond, how many students end up the course, etc. Few theories are concern about the creativity aspects and/or pedagogical aspects of the use of online material and courses.
Despite this understanding, on the contrary, we believe that the structure of the information and/or material should come from student/observer participation and reflection, not from the way the information/material is presented. Therefore 'material for courses' has a random nature and offers information and material which needs to be organized by the students own perspective.
Approach to the Cinema of Pablo Trapero. This brief set of graphics and schemes should allow you to work in the introduction of the discussion about 'Dispersión, territorio y cinematografía', using Pablo Trapero's films as basic material. The general title of the presentation should be in fact 'Dispersión, territorio y cinematografía. Las películas de Pablo Trapero' (September 2007). The material is in Spanish and the files in PDF format.
Space and European Cinema. This short course was originally designed in 2007 for university students of the Distance Learning program, however I have been using it as an introduction to general issues of what I call 'geo-eistemology', that is, as introduction to the discussion of the main question/problems to the formulation of a concept of knowledge nowadays. More relevant, I have been using this brief course as a general introduction to other 'terrestrial' courses. Here it the complete version of it. Audio files are in MP3 format and documents in PDF format.
