Τηλεδιασκέψεις. Storyline - Online Training Software. The Basics of Scenario-Based e-Learning. In this post, I will walk you through the various aspects of scenario-based eLearning, so that you can design eLearning courses which not only keep the learners motivated and engaged, but provide them with the best possible educational experience that effectively enhances their skill sets and/or knowledge base. There are a myriad of instructional design theories and models to choose from when creating eLearning courses.

In fact, selecting the one that fits your students’ or employees’ needs can often be a challenging task. However, if you are looking for a model that is ideally suited to improve learner engagement, then scenario-based eLearning may be the solution.Scenario-Based eLearning, essentially, immerses the learners in real life or situational simulations or learning experiences that allow them to gather skills or information that they will recall for future use. How Scenario-Based eLearning Improves Engagement and Understanding. 7 Micro-eLearning Techniques to Improve Performance. In this article, I will offer you an in-depth look at how you can integrate Micro-eLearning techniques into your eLearning course, in order to improve performance and provide your students or employees with the most beneficial eLearning course design.

There are a variety of benefits associated with Micro-learning, particularly in eLearning environments. In essence, micro-eLearning offers students and employees the opportunity to more easily absorb and retain the information that is being offered, by making lessons and course activities more manageable and “digestible”. Micro-eLearning is often referred to as “bite sized” education, because it breaks the educational process down into lessons that typically last no longer than a few minutes, and enable them to collect and recall course materials more efficiently and effectively.

Η πρακτική της συμμετοχικής εκπαίδευσης (inclusiveeducation), η οποία αφορά στην ισότιμη συμμετοχή όλων των μαθητών στη γενική εκπαίδευση, αναφέρεται στην αντιμετώπιση της διαφορετικότητας στην τάξη. Για την ανάπτυξη της συμμετοχικής εκπαίδευσης χρειάζεται μια θεώρηση της μάθησης ως διαδικασίας που αποσκοπεί στην απόκτηση «ικανοτήτων» από τους μαθητές και όχι μόνο στην απόκτηση «γνώσης των μαθημάτων». Οι εκπαιδευτικές προσεγγίσεις που θεωρούνται αποτελεσματικές για την κάλυψη των διαφορετικών αναγκών των μαθητών που φοιτούν στην κανονική τάξη, χωρίς να βάζουν ετικέτες και να κατηγοριοποιούν, είναι: Η συνεργασία και η ομαδική δουλειά που διευκολύνει τους εκπαιδευτικούς να εργάζονται αποτελεσματικά σε ομάδες με άλλους εκπαιδευτικούς (συνδιδασκαλία), αλλά και με ειδικούς εντός και εκτός σχολείου (διεπιστημονική προσέγγιση).

Άλλες πρακτικές που διευρύνουν τη συμμετοχή των μαθητών και υπηρετούν τις αρχές του «καθολικού σχεδιασμού» στην εκπαίδευση είναι οι εξής: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Home.

Rapid elearning design is made up of three core functions: rapid authoring, rapid assets, and rapid instructional design.

One thing common to many rapid elearning developers is that while their organizations will fund the purchase of rapid authoring tools, they do little else to fund the development of the assets required to make the elearning course look good and be effective. For example, a large part of the course’s construction involves the visual design of the course. It represents building the right look and feel, something we touched on in this previous post where we reviewed a good visual design activity. It also means have the right screen elements to place in the course. In the visual design activity, you learn how to determine what screen elements to use; but you don’t learn how to create those elements. And this is a big challenge for many elearning developers. So in today’s post, we’ll look at a few ways to scrounge for some free resources using the tools you do have. 1. 2.

Elearnspace. Help! » Anne Fox. I spend a great deal of time facilitating courses helping teachers learn how to integrate ICT into their everyday practice. Although I have facilitated such courses in blended format with a great deal of face to face input, most of the time now I find myself facilitating 100% online. There are worries of course about what happens when a course participant meets technical problems but most of these can be solved quite quickly with relevant screenshots and a careful description of what has been done up to that point. The printscreen button on the keyboard is invaluable in producing ‘photos’ of error messages or whatever else may be giving a problem when using a specific tool and I make increasing use of screencasting tools such as Screenr which help me to demonstrate how to do something on the screen quite easily.

Of course this requires a little learner training as well in the use of the PrintScreen button for example. From Classroom to Online, Think “Transform” not “Transfer” by Jane Bozarth. “Find out which aspects of the classroom program are most successful ... and which aspects fail. Talk with learners and the classroom instructors, and review any evaluation or follow-up data they are able to provide.” Converting an existing classroom course to an online format can be a tricky, time-consuming undertaking. The easy way out — simply moving the content and lecture portions to an electronic means of delivery — is what leads to e“Learning” at its worst: slide after slide of bulleted information and loss of engaging activities and the contributions of individual instructors. What’s a better way to go? Look for ways to capture the richness that a good instructor brings to the classroom, such as responsiveness, a sense of humor, interesting stories and examples, and immediate feedback.

Also, when considering moving a classroom course online, approach it not just as converting one form to another, but as an opportunity to improve the existing product. Cut-n-chunk What’s working?


Digital Citizenship. Massively Open Online Courses – the Death of Universities? The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies (#digilit) | Synechism. Soon after Grace, my daughter, was born earlier this year I was invited to Australia to keynote the Association of Independent Schools, New South Wales ICT Managers’ Conference .

At the time, Grace was having some problems with lactose intolerance and so I couldn’t commit to being the other side of the world. The organisers still wanted me to present and so I produced the above ‘TELL Talk’ on along with giving a 50-minute workshop on the same subject. It felt a bit strange getting dressed to present at 2am in the morning to co-ordinate with their schedule but the technology worked well and the session seemed to be well-received. watch the Zipcast of my presentation here Two presentations (#TELIC1 & #iDragon) [VIDEO] Zen and the Art of Digital Literacies (#EdTech12) How to Develop Digital Literacies in Yourself and Others [PRESENTATION] Getting started with Digital Literacies [Presentation] Digital literacies and why they’re important… for everyone!

New to E-Learning? Here are Some Simple Steps to Help You Get Started. To a novice even simple things seem complex. And when things appear complex, we can become frustrated or feel like we don’t have the skills to accomplish what it is we want to do. I recall years ago when I was learning video production. I felt like my skills were inadequate (which they were). So my instructor told me to record some television commercials and then break them down into pieces to see how they were built. He said that this would help me focus less on the glossiness of the commercials and more on their construction.

This exercise was one of the best learning experiences for me. For new elearning developers, I recommend a similar process. Take a book, for example. The Basics In a very simple sense an elearning course is about creating an environment where a person goes from a point of not knowing to knowing. Common Course Chunks While each course has different content, they all generally have a similar structure. If you want, you can flesh out the chunks a bit more. Tidbits: Moodle Blog.
