Selecting Technologies This page helps you choose among various technologies (not just LMSs) using two approaches: examples of learning outcomes, the kinds of learning activities that could achieve those outcomes, and how those activities could be supported by various learning technologies examples of the tools you may be interested in using and the types of activities and learning outcomes that are likely to be relevant. Table 1: Sample learning outcomes, rationales and activities The following table provides examples of learning outcomes, the kinds of learning activities that promote those outcomes, and how the activities could be supported by learning technologies. Table 2: Tools related to activities, and their contribution to learning outcomes The following table provides examples of the tools you may be interested in using and looks at the types of activities and learning outcomes that are likely to be relevant.

What do Curators, e-Educators and Constructivists all have in common? “A curator (from Latin: cura meaning “care”) is a manager or overseer [educator] of a collection [e-resources], traditionally a museum or gallery and is a content specialist responsible for an institution’s collections [educational resources] and involved with the interpretation [constructivist] of material.” I’ve inserted my own words into Wikipedia’s definition of curator, as I’ve been exploring the term ‘educator as curator’, an emerging concept I’ve noted based on blog discussions and social learning tools developed within the past twelve months. Scoop-it and Curatr both describe learning with the adjective ‘curate’ and discuss educator as ‘curator’. I’ll admit, I was stretched to see the connection between real learning and ‘curating’ in this context, though after viewing Corinne Weisgerber’s (St. Corinne Weisgerber (Associate Prof. of Communication at St. The future for Social Learning?

We don’t need no educator : The role of the teacher in today’s online education [All Presentations] We don’t need no educator : The role of the teacher in today’s online education February 15, 2013 Keynote presentation delivered to Utdanningskonferansen 2013, Bergen, Norway. This presentation, delivered in Bergen, Norway, describes the changing nature of online learning with the introduction of massive open online courses, and in that context describes and explains the changing roles of the educator. [Slides] [Audio] [Conference Link] Why Give Knowledge Away for Free? The Case for Open Educational Resources "At the moment the OER movement is taking its first steps beyond a culture focused around "my site" towards a culture that is focused around "our commons." Most people who create OER sites have a sense of who they expect their users to be and what needs those users have. This is all to the good, if it is not to the exclusion of those users whose needs--or innovations--we have totally failed to imagine." Towards a Global Learning Commons An apparently extraordinary trend is emerging. Higher education is facing a number of challenges: globalisation, an aging society, growing competition between higher educational institutions both nationally and internationally, and rapid technological development. OER are a fascinating technological development and, potentially, a major educational tool. OER projects can expand access to learning for everyone, but most of all, for non-traditional groups of students. What are OER? Who is Using and Producing OER? Figure 1: Categories of OER Providers

How to Create Effective Activities for Online Teaching Faculty Focus We’ve all used them, first as students and now as online instructors: activities in a class meant to highlight, spotlight, underline, enhance, or explain some aspect of the subject we are teaching. Too often, not much thought or effort is given to these activities, resulting in outdated and unsuccessful activities. With the right approaches and a bit of knowledge, online instructors can create activities that are dynamic, effective, and interesting. Here’s how … The best activities are “reality-based” activities. Be certain the activities are up to date. Be on the lookout for existing or potential activities that can be morphed to fit your class. Develop any new activities with students in mind, never you. Keep all activities short and easy to understand. Don’t hesitate to use humor in the activities. Make certain all activities fall under your school’s umbrella of acceptability. Make use of the newest online technology. Be sure to give credit when applicable.
La formation en ligne est là pour rester et croître, spécialement en éducation post-secondaire. Sir John Daniels prédit une transformation importante des universités. Dans ce vidéo de 7 minutes, Sir John Daniels démontre que l’industrialisation de l’éducation, avec les avantages indéniables coté qualité et économie d’échelle, fait en sorte que le secteur privé est en train de s’accaparer l’éducation en ligne à moins que le secteur public cesse de privilégier le modèle artisanal et commence à travailler en équipe et avec des spécialisations de fonctions et le souci du «client». Si on ajoute de plus l’utilisation des ressources ouvertes, où il est possible de produire et de profiter de ressources de qualité gratuitement, on s’aperçoit que des changements profonds se préparent en éducation post-secondaire. Ainsi plutôt que de réexpliquer le principe la roue, on utilise le matériel déjà produit et s’attaque à un nouveau pan de connaissance qui s’ajoutera à la masse de contenus de qualité.
