Lesson: Articles on Visual Design - 2 views

      It's important for me to remember all of these tools...moving from a face to face environment to an online setting is vastly different, and these tools are what I as a student need, so I need to be incorporating them as well. Without a good position, color that catches my eye and various design elements I've lost interest. If I've lost interest with the lack of tools, then so will my students.

      I find this very frustrating as well. I took an online class a few years ago, (not an AEA class:)), and the various links were not embedded. So, when I would click on those links, I'd be taken completely out of the course and would have to constantly log back in.  
  • To achieve precedence you have many tools at your disposal:
  • Hick’s law says that with every additional choice increases the time required to take a decision.

      This is such an interesting statement - as I parent I know and agree with this statement, but it seems we're often encouraged to give students as many choices as possible for assessment and/or project purposes.
  • It should not be considered merely ‘blank’ space — it is an important element of design

      This is so interesting and I've noticed the importance of this "white space" as I've been looking at Softchalk lessons. It also reminds me how we've learned that when designing our lessons, using shorter paragraphs (separated by white space) is better than traditional paragraphs given on a handout in a face to face classroom. 
  • Users don’t read, they scan.

      I know this is true of students, but as adults we are the same way! We know what we need to read well and give our full attention and then there are other things that we scan to find what we need. This is an important skill for students to learn, so having an online lesson set up well will be beneficial.
  • Web users are impatient and insist on instant gratification.

      This is so true as well and it's important for me to remember as I move forward with my Softchalk lesson - if they can't figure out how to move around, they will become frustrated and give up. It's not that we should not teach them to problem solve, but the training in how to move around the lesson will be important.

dol1: Lesson Planning: The Missing Link in e-Learning Course Design - 7 views

  • The comparative lesson plan requires the ID to develop the same lesson for two different delivery methods: instructor-led, face-to-face instruction, and self-paced e-Learning
    • kelly40
       
      Creating the same lesson for 2 different delivery methods will be so helpful in seeing the difference between what is needed with face to face and online instruction.

      Doing both will only make the lesson more effective and make it much easier to understand if the end goal/objective is attainable and clear. I really like this comparison model.

  • . Modeling • Learners need to see examples of a product or a process • Instructor may model or learner may model • Needs to be visual and verbal
  • But why choose? Do both. Remember, lesson planning does not preclude an iterative approach to e-Learning course design.

      How do we model in a way to engage students? When they are watching a "how to" video, they are engaged, but in LA, don't have many of those types of videos...often I am modeling paragraph structure or textual citation which isn't very interesting to many.
