Text in E-learning: The Unsung Hero | G-Cube - 2 views

  • Is text in e-learning as important today as it was when this industry took its first steps? I know that most of you will answer “yes” and that’s true. Text has not lost its shine amidst high-end graphics, audio-video or any other kind of content.
  •  Imagine going through a course that has around 300 words on each frame or 10 text-heavy pop-ups. Would you really like to go through such a course? Probably not! Text-heavy courses or page-turners are often deemed tedious by learners.
  • Well, here are some tried and tested solutions that will help you use text to its maximum potential.

      These customizable signs could have a lot of uses. I use them in Emergency Management training and technical writing. The developer also has a few other graphics sites (see dropdown below) that I am able to use.

Considerations when using online questioning and discussion | Penn State Learning Desig... - 8 views

    " Establish teams and allow students to work together to post a final revised response. This results in fewer messages for you to read. Consider size and number of teams. Try to have no more than seven students on a team. Create clear guidelines for collaborating online and working in teams. "
    I have found that I initially have to make my groups very large due to the large amount of students who were thrown into the class and have no desire to succeed. Furthermore, I'll change groupings to ensure that one student isn't doing all the work for a group.

Designing Courses with a Progression of Learning Experiences | Faculty Focus - 11 views

  • we want students engaged, interacting and learning the content collectively
  • we want these group experiences to teach students something about working with others—how disagreements can be handled constructively, how work can be divided equitably, how the group can influence what individual members do.
  • Perhaps each one focuses on a different skill or each one requires more sophisticated use of developing skills. This means the order in which they’re experienced matters. Each experience should build on what happened in the previous one.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Thinking developmentally means that each of these group experiences should be different
  • Teachers who aspire to develop critical thinking abilities in their students must start with a clear understanding of what it is they want students to be able to do
  • make it possible for students to see that courses are not islands but rather connected territories where what they learn in one relates to what they learn in the other
    Plan courses to build learning experiences within the course and in the sequence of the courses.

Incorporating Active Learning Requires Purposeful Design | Faculty Focus - 1 views

  • If students are working together to solve a problem and the teacher is available but only asks students questions, chances are good that more than one student in the group is actively thinking and talking about the content
  • it can mean that activities aren’t selected and sequenced with some overall plan in mind
  • what’s happening in classrooms is activity simply for the sake of activity. Active learning has become something teachers use to keep basically bored students awake and attentive

  • Are you using enough active learning to make a difference
    Instead of just using active learning, creating active learning that meets the objectives of the course and is enough to stimulate learning.

Cognitive Styles | UX Magazine - 3 views

  • But how deep does our understanding of users actually go
  • For over a century, psychologists have been trying to account for the range of individual differences people exhibit when interacting with new information. At the heart of their research lie cognitive styles—the stable attitudes, preferences, and habitual strategies that determine how an individual processes information. Understanding cognitive styles will help us design better experiences for users.
  • Analytic vs. Holistic Thinkers
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • So what?
  • Holistic thinkers: big-picture visionaries
  • Analytic thinkers: brick-by-brick craftsmen
  • Design for wayfinding
  • What do these differences between analytic and holistic thinkers mean for the design of websites and applications? Above all, they should remind us that users are not uniform; there are vast differences between them, and we must design experiences that meet the needs of both types of thinkers
  • Design for learnability
  • Use strong information scent
  • Designing for Cognitive Styles
  • In the words of Edward Tufte, "There are some universal cognitive tasks that are deep and profound—indeed, so deep and profound that it is worthwhile to understand them in order to design our displays in accord with those tasks."
    This is important to keep in mind when designing f2f or online programs.

    Alexander, the Google Good to Know You site is terrific. I've never seen it before. I like the short videos that explain technical terms and concepts like IP addresses and cookies. I recommend this site to all! It's a good way too understand the concepts of Internet safety and data security. It will also help build our technical vocabulary!
