  • Create a more student-centered teaching model that engages students
  • During the more intense situations, you may want to give students a chance to collect their thoughts and respond to writing prompts

An Exploration into Facilitating Higher Levels of Learning in a Text-Based Internet Lea... - 5 views

  • Concurrent with the results of the McGraw-Hill Ryerson survey, related literature has suggested that web-based learning can transform learning experiences in positive ways, increasing the quality of the learning experiences with respect to the development of higher order thinking skills (Garrison & Anderson, 2003; Heckman & Annabi, 2005; McKnight, 2001)
  • The objectives of the present study were to explore (1) how well various instructional strategies transfer to text-based Internet learning environments, and (2) the effectiveness of various instructional strategies in facilitating higher levels of learning.
  • The results of this study reveal that (1) the instructional strategies under investigation can be effectively translated to the online classroom and (2) certain instructional strategies are more effective than others at creating the conditions necessary to facilitate higher levels of learning.

Filtering the Information Flood: Strategies for Effectively Teaching Online - wesfryer - 4 views

  • Description: Are you dealing with TMI (Too Much Information) in your online teaching? Clay Shirky points out TMI is
  • sues often result from "filter failure." In this session we will explore a variety of strategies to more effectively filter information we share with students and receive from them online. We'll also explore ways we can use web-based audio recording tools to provide personalized and efficient feedback to our students for assessment
    Many report being overwhelmed with information.  Call it the information flood or infoglut, the result is the same.  You feel underwater and wonder if you'll ever make sense of it all.  As you are seeing now, much of E-Learning for Educators is about learning to filter information. Diigo is a way to do this.  Powersearching is a way to do this. Understanding and using 'tags' (short keywords that capture the essence of the info's meaning) is a way to do this.  EVENTUALLY you'll learn to build and control those filters. This is part of becoming an online teacher.  It's also part of living in the 21st century.  Wes Fryer is one of my 'filters'.  I've found his work to be consistently interesting.  By following an experts thinking, you create a filter that will help you make sense of all this information!

Strategies for Increasing Online Student Retention and Satisfaction - 9 views

  • Despite the tremendous growth of distance education, retention remains its Achilles’ heel. Estimates of the failed retention rate for distance education undergraduates range from 20 to 50 percent. Distance education administrators believe the failed retention rate for online courses may be 10 to 20 percent higher than for face-to-face courses. Failure to address online course retention will have a significant impact on a program’s bottom line and ability to grow.

Successful Strategies for Using Asynchronous Discussion Boards - 2 views

  • In this age of digital communication, asynchronous discussion provides additional ways for instructors and students to interact, whether they are truly at a distance, or just trying to expand the walls and time constraints of the traditional face-to-face (F2F) classroom.
    • Shandana Said
      Also provides good definitions of the different types of asynchronous discussion forums on the Internet.
    This website provides a guide to understanding and using asynchronous discussion forums effectively. It is based on teacher anecdotes.
    In Caldwell's article 'Going the Distance with Online Instruction, VSTE Journal, Fall 1998, p. 3,6 it states, "The asynchronous environment that provides threaded discussion, combined with creative use of Internet resources and multimedia, forms the most effective combination for successful student engagement." Collins-Brown begins the article with this quote, it is thus crucial that online instructors understand the multiple ways that discussion forums can be utilized and embedded into the online environment. This article begins by introducing two strategies: instruction and interaction. Strategies for providing instruction included the following: basic course Q & A, course announcements and program level announcements, whole class discussion, small group discussion, group projects, give assignments, have students post assignments, online office hours and others (debates, case studies, lab assignments, journals, exam preparation). Interaction strategies include: learner to content interaction (text pages, video, audio, multimedia, graphics), learner to instructor (feedback and learning initiated by the instructor), learner to learner (discussion in small groups, projects). The article continues to outline the benefits and challenges of discussion boards. Discussion forums are an integral part of the '6 + 1 Writing Traits' course. Participants are dependent on putting the theory into action by grading papers in a collaborative manner. This article allowed me to see how versatile the forum is and how effective it is at creating a learning community. In my own courses this is one of the areas that I need to put into practice. I have started in a small way but know in order to get the students to buy into this form of learning they need to understand the value of sharing and learning from each other.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development: Podcasting = Continuous Production NOT ... - 0 views

  • The beauty of podcasting is NOT that you have an easy way to send ONE or TWO audio (or video) recordings of an instructor leading an in-class course or instructor-led training.  If that's all you are doing then you have NOT created a podcast.  The simple act of recording a few audio or video files and putting them on a webserver with a link for users to access...IS NOT PODCASTING! If you understand what I just said then you may not find this post relevant to you. If reading that made you wonder a little bit about your podcasting strategy then you MUST read on.
    The author makes the excellent point that podcasting is an ongoing process, rather than one-off announcements.
