Tech Tip: Curating Content with Open Tapestry

Organizing collections of content, whether articles, webpages, images and media, or some combination of these things, to share with students in your courses can often be challenging. Open Tapestry is a free online tool to help you organize content collections and incorporate tasks and annotations with that content. Here are a couple example courses to show you what these can look like:

Art Appreciation and Techniques | Clinical Psychology | Differential Equations

Rather than building an entire course you can simply create a single tapestry (equivalent to a bulletin or pin board), an assessment, a lesson, or a presentation. These different types of collections give you the option to organize and stratify your content as much or as little as you would like. Content can be images and files, webpages or clippings from pages, even RSS feeds and YouTube channels, and all of these can be annotated and have tasks associated with them. You can even combine multiple clippings and webpages into a single annotated page to create rich instructional content for your students.

Another strength of Open Tapestry is that it integrates easily with ECLearn. The integration allows you to add tapestries to Modules, Assignments, and Pages. This video provides more information about how you can use Open Tapestry in your course sites:

If you are interested in using Open Tapestry in your course sites, set up is easy: log into your Open Tapestry and then go to http://www.opentapestry.com/canvas (also available from your account menu as Configure Integrations). For the URL put https://eclearn.emmanuel.edu. It will prompt you to log into your ECLearn account and then allow you to select the course sites to which you would like to add the tool.

Once configured, you will be able to share any tapestries you have created with your students and integrate this content seamlessly into your course sites. And because the integration is dynamic, you can continue to add content to your tapestries throughout the course of the semester, providing students with immediate access to updates and new material.
