Preparing for a teaching session, and live teaching, is much easier when your educational materials are available on hand

Preparing for a teaching session, and live teaching, is much easier when you have access to educational materials online. Teaching and interacting with students using an educational website takes advantage of educational content that has been created and curated previously, and made easily accessible via an indexed hyperlinked online teaching repository. To use a cooking analogy, as teachers, we now have ready access to a well stocked and organised grocery store and food ingredient larder (our educational repository of reusable learning objects); potential recipes (our curricular and teaching plans); as well as semi-prepared and previously given teaching sessions (items in our fridge and freezer). We are now able to efficiently prepare a meal (deliver a teaching session), even a live cooking demonstration (live teaching session), as our educational materials are available on hand, and can be easily illustrated and demonstrated on a teaching or educational website.
