A Roadmap for Building an E-Learning Course » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 0 views

  • Think about your course design.  Is it inviting from the start? Design matters.  It conveys to the learner that what they’re doing is important and worth their time.

    "You don't need to be a professional audio engineer to record narration. However, you do want to pay attention to what you're doing and do the best job possible. Last week, we looked at some basic tips to record high-quality audio. Those tips leaned more on the technology. Today we'll look at what you can do to get the best narration. I also added some tips from last week's comments section."

Child Development, Children's Mental Health and the Juvenile Justice System - Standford Law and Policy Review - 1 views

  • Thus, there are several reasons why actors in our juvenile justice system should understand child development principles. Indeed, there may be paradoxical or untoward negative developmental consequences of incompetent or developmentally inappropriate sanctions by a juvenile court. Simply put, there is the very real risk that the system can do more harm than good to a child who is still in the process of neurobiological, psychological, social, and moral development. Because of this, the negat
  • ve consequences of careless sanctioning may be more enduring for a child (and for society) than they might be for an adult.
  • Childhood is an intense period of rapid development culminating in the tasks of identity formation and social integration. Other than infancy, no stage in human development results in such rapid or dramatic change as adolescence.
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • These developmental tasks are exquisitely sensitive to environmental (peer, educational, familial, and social) influence. To complicate matters further, the teen years are also characterized by a struggle for autonomy from adults upon whom these youth must still depend.
  • According to some authorities, adolescence is an "important formative period in which many developmental trajectories become firmly established and increasingly difficult to alter . . . it is not an overstatement to say that it is much easier to alter an individual's life course in adolescence than in adulthood."
  • experience affects brain development and the developing brain affects how the environment is experienced and processed.
  • Therefore, future behaviors in response to a given set of environmental circumstances, cues, or stimuli can be traced to genetic/biological factors (temperament, biological predilection, or vulnerability) and experience (internal, familial, interpersonal, and environmental).
  • Research using magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrates differences in the way adolescents and adults think and feel and the way they process information before they act.
  • From a child development perspective, the predictability and consistency of adult attention and responsiveness is often what is most important. If a child learns that his social environment will respond inconsistently, he is much more likely to continue a behavior in the hopes that he will "get away with it this time."
  •  
    The article by Dr. David E. Arredondo was published in the Standford Law and Policy review and explains principles of child development and discusses the various ways children of different developmental stages experience the same sanction. Can this same process be used as a rationale for including website evaluation at all levels of education?

Here's How to Help Your Subject Matter Experts Build Better E-Learning Courses » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 2 views

  • Subject matter experts know their subject matter.  That’s why they’re called experts.  But they don’t always know how best to teach what they know, especially when it comes to elearning. Subject matter experts offer a lot of value when it comes to building your elearning courses.  They have invested lots of time in developing their expertise so they’re able to touch on nuances that go beyond just information.  This can be critical in your course design. However, there are some challenges when working with experts. Often they’re so far removed from the learning process and where a new person is that they lose perspective on what is most essential to learning new skills.  Trying to get the right information and structure for your course can prove difficult.

9 Ways to Encourage the Adult E-Learners » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 5 views

  • Do you need to test everything?  Every day we take in all sorts of information that is critical to meeting our goals.  When my boss sends an email detailing new plans, he doesn’t follow it up with a quiz.  Assessing a person’s understanding is an important part of learning, but do we need to always have a test?  In many ways it retards the learning process. As soon as people find out they’re being tested, they quit learning and focus on how to pass the test.  If you don’t need a test, don’t include one.  If you do need to assess their understanding, perhaps there’s a better way to do so.

    A nice addition to our catalog, Greg. In that all of my students are adult learners, I may have more interest in this article than your classmates. I will definitely add this to my bookmarks.

» How to Use This Free Screencasting Tool for E-Learning The Rapid eLearning Blog - 0 views

  • You may have heard the news last week that Articulate launched a new screencasting tool called Screenr.  It is a free web-based tool that lets you create screencasts without installing any software.
  • My favorite…there’s no branding on the downloaded MP4 files.  Since you can download the videos, you’re free to use them as you wish.  That means you can use it in your elearning courses without looking like one of those MLS soccer players.  Go Sounders!  And of course, Screenr is free.  Free is always good.
  •  
    Anything from Articulate is worth looking at. I suspect this will go toe to toe with Jing.

How To Get Your Learners to Remember More - The Rapid eLearning Blog - 1 views

  • Organize Content into Small Chunks.  Structure the new information in small, related chunks so that it is optimized for working memory.  Don’t overload the working memory with irrelevant content.  The brain is sorting and organizing the information.  If it’s not relevant, or there’s too much of it, it interferes with the learning process.
  • Create processes where the learner can practice using the information in a context that integrates it with prior experience.
  • Case studies and practices exercises are good because they can be structured to combine the new information with the learner’s current understanding.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Provide Real-World Context.  The goal is to get the learner to pull information out of long-term memory and transfer it to a real world context.  Create exercises and real-world scenarios that help the learner apply the new information into a workplace context.   Problem-solving scenarios help develop thinking skills that can be transferred to the real world.
  • If you want your learners to learn and use the course content after they’re done with the course, make sure that you create the elearning courses to be memorable.  Consider how much information you share and how you present it to the learner.

The Problem of "Pedagogy" in a Web 2.0 Era -- Campus Technology - 8 views

  • We need to understand how adults learn and design the undergraduate experience accordingly.
  •  
    By Trent Baston Clearly, we have left the time of knowledge stability and entered a time of incredibly rapid change. Web 2.0, a term coined in 2004, is a description of the new Web architecture, but is also a historical marker between the era of comfortable stability and the era of unsettling change. Many in higher education say we have accordingly turned to learning and away from teaching, but in fact we haven't. Most educators I talk with are unaware of the degree of change necessary today or of the degree to which deep change will continue over the coming decades. And so, the dominant emphasis on teaching remains.
  •  
    As a facilitator more than an instructor, I discovered this article by Trent Baston through the website Campus Technology. Are the members of the E-Learning for Educators community familiar with this website? If so, is it a valuable source of information? Again, as someone new to this area of expertise, I greatly appreciate any feedback the community has regarding some of the issues raised in this article.
