JOLT - Journal of Online Learning and Teaching - 4 views

    "Whenever teachers are considering a tool/technique/strategy/approach (regardless of delivery mode), they would be best served to ask how that choice will impact student engagement, intellectual development, and personal connections"
    I enjoyed this article which seems to focus on the fact that effective online learning/teaching should not be focused on the technology we use. I've been very pleased so far with the UW-Stout E-learning course and how this has been at the heart of all we are considering. That said, I'm loving learning about the tools as well as this is a new world for me.

US DOE Evaluation of Evidence-based Practices - 2 views

    The article Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies is a study undertaken at the behest of the U.S, Department of Education to evaluate online learning practices through a meta-analysis of research. It is intended for policy-makers, administrators and educators to use to make research based decisions on online learning and teacher preparation at the K-12 level. The original plan was to have it completed by 2008, but there were so few rigorous studies available that they waited until 2010 to include more. In a search of the literature from 1994-2008, only 5 studies were found of sufficient rigor to measure effectiveness of online learning in K-12 students. The remaining 43 studies were for older learners, with most content being from the medical or health care field. The lead author, Dr. Barbara Means, directs the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, an independent nonprofit research organization. Her focus is on the relationship between technology, education systems, and student learning. Four research questions were addressed: * How does the effectiveness of online learning compare with that of face-to-face instruction? * Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction enhance learning? * What practices are associated with more effective online learning? * What conditions influence the effectiveness of online learning? The findings that were most interesting to me were: * Guiding questions provided to discussion groups influence the way students interact, but not the amount they learn. * Learning is enhanced when students can manipulate media or reflect. * Videos do not influence learning more than assigning homework, unless students can manipulate them. * Online quizzes do not influence learning more than homework. * Explicitly taught self-reflection, self-regulation and self

Ten Best Practices for Teaching Online - 21 views

  • his is the tool that helps a widely dispersed group of students and faculty become a learning community.
  • We have learned to quantify what it means to "be present." The "best o
  • e" faculty -- according to students -- are faculty who show their presence multiple times a week, and at best daily. Setting clear expectations at the beginning of a course with course policies is very helpful, however and can reduce the need for daily presence if that is not your particular style. Setting regular times when you can meet in a virtual classroom, and thus be available -- almost in real time similar to office hours, can be invaluable.

  • Set up small groups where students can assume responsibility for supportive mentoring of fellow students and summarizing key points of a class assignment.
  • Encourage use of a general open student forum for students to post and request help and assistance
  • Set up problem-solving forums
  • faculty identify the core concepts to be learned in a course -- the performance goals -- and then mentor learners through a set of increasingly complex and even customized projects applying these core concepts.
  • This best practice cannot be overemphasized
  • variety of activities and experiences
  • few hints for discussion postings
  • Launch the class with a personal introduction posting
  • about week 3, ask for informal feedback on "How is the course going?" and "Do you have any suggestions?
  • Combine core concept learning with customized and personalized learning

      This may be very subjective according to the type of course taught. Stricking the right balance between core content and personal learning makes r breaks a course.
  • Liberal use of a faculty's use of communication tools such as announcements, discussion board postings, and forums communicate to the students that the faculty member cares about who they are, cares about their questions and concerns, and is generally "present" to do the mentoring and challenging that teaching is all about.
  • A good strategy for developing a supportive online course community is to design a course with a balanced set of dialogues. This means designing a course so that the three dialogues of faculty to student, student to student and student to resource are about equal. In most online courses, the dialogue of faculty to student is provided with (1) mini-lectures in text or video or audio podcasts, (2) weekly coaching and reminder announcements and (3) explanations/interactions with the students.
  • Include on your course site a set of expectations for how students communicate and dialogue online and how they communicate with you.
