Overheard in a coffee shop near campus: ‘Hey, Frank, you don’t look too happy’ ‘Yeah, I’m mad as hell. Our Dean called a meeting yesterday of all faculty to discuss the university’s new academic plan, and what it means for all the academic departments in the Faculty. I knew there had been meetings earlier in the year, a few of which I’d attended, but it seemed to be the same old waffle about building a university fit for a new age, and revolutionizing the way we teach. But as soon as the dean started yesterday, I sensed trouble. But then the real kicker, when I knew things were going to be difficult. But when I really started to panic is when he said we would all have to start taking courses on how to teach.

If any of that rings a bell, this is the book for you. Why this book? In the book, I identify: Although the book contains many practical examples, it is more than a cookbook on how to teach. In the end, though, the book isn’t really about you. To come: Different ways to use the book: EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, DISTANCE EDUC., BLENDED LEARNING.

Written by: Rob KellyPublished On: February 8, 2014 Because online courses have fewer opportunities for the spontaneous, real-time exchanges of the face-to-face classroom, online instruction requires a deliberate approach to design and facilitation.

As Bethany Simunich says, “Online, learning doesn’t happen by chance.” In an interview with Online Classroom, Simunich, associate director of online learning at Kent State University, offered the following techniques to improve an online course: 1. Vary the learning experiences. Using a backward design approach, Simunich has instructors consider what types of activities will enable students to demonstrate that they have achieved the course’s learning outcomes.

Depending on those outcomes, the best approach might be an individual assignment or one that involves collaboration in small or large groups. 2. The instructor needs to design the discussion to give students a way to enter the conversation. What is the purpose of this discussion? 3. 4.

Best free video converter: 12 on test. Introduction Our best free video converters round-up has been fully updated. This feature was first published in February 2012. MP4, FLV, MK4, MOV – videos come in many different formats, each of which can then vary in a raft of subtle ways.

Which would be just fine if every application and device could handle every possible format, but of course that isn't the case. And so often you'll find you've downloaded a movie to your PC, phone or tablet, but either it has major playback problems – no picture or sound, say – or you can't watch the clip at all.

Read on and we'll show you seven of the best video converters for Windows around (the final one is actually available on the Mac and for Linux, too).

SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software.

It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern, it is purely a technical standard. Can you help me with an example or analogy? Let’s take DVDs for example. The SCORM standard makes sure that all e-learning content and LMSs can work with each other, just like the DVD standard makes sure that all DVDs will play in all DVD players. The Cost of Content Integration What does SCORM stand for? SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. “Reference Model” reflects the fact that SCORM isn’t actually a standard. Do you produce SCORM? No. So how do you guys fit in the picture? CourseLab | Top 100 Tools for Learning. 29 Free eLearning Tools. The world is awash in “free” these days. “Free” consultations, “free” samples, “free” eBooks; they’re everywhere.

Some of them are genuinely free, but many are just “free” and you don’t realize until it’s too late that they’re “free with the purchase of…” or “free for two weeks if you input a credit card first.” I’m a simple guy. I like my “free” things to be free, period. In the spirit of free, and not “free” I’ve put together a list of the best free tools you can use specifically for eLearning functions (for instance, I’m not a fan of saying Skype counts as a dedicated eLearning tool just because you can do face-to-face classes with it).

I’ve organized them below into sections for course authoring, learning management systems, and mobile apps.

In this article, I will talk about the different ways in which Multiple Intelligence Theory can be implemented in eLearning to help the learner effectively acquire, retain, and utilize the information being provided within the eLearning course.

The Multiple Intelligence Theory was developed by Dr. Howard Gardner in 1983. Dr. Gardner, a noted psychologist and professor of neuroscience from Harvard University, suggested that every human being interacts with their environment differently. We each possess nine different kinds of intelligence, but our experiences, cultural beliefs, and knowledge base determine their exact configuration.What is “intelligence”, according to Multiple Intelligence Theory? According to Gardner, there are three key elements that determine a person's intelligence: The ability to create a service or product that will be valued in the person's society of culture.

Multiple Intelligence Theory can be implemented in eLearning based upon the nine multiple intelligences. IPAD 4 SCHOOLS. Articulate Community. Journal - eLearning and digital media.
