UX to LX: The Rise of Learner Experience Design - 0 views

  •  
    "Instructional designers, like web developers in the '90s, historically had expertise in conveying content through a limited set of tools and platforms, such as a learning management system (LMS). LX designers, in contrast, merge design-thinking principles with curriculum development and the application of emerging technologies to help faculty tailor content to student behaviors and preferences. It cuts across disciplines and moves beyond the LMS: LX designers embrace graphic design, multimedia production, research-based standards and social media. They are partners to faculty throughout the program and course development process."

Student Voices on the Roles of Instructors in Asynchronous Learning Environments in the... - 1 views

  •  
    "The findings suggest that a new role, the life skill promoter, has emerged. Furthermore, analysis of the remaining roles (pedagogical, designer, social, technical and managerial) showed that: (i) online instructors are, first and foremost, pedagogues; (ii) the design of the particular online program influences the pedagogical and designer roles and; (iii) the managerial role has declined in importance over the years due to the development of more intuitive and transparent online scenarios from the beginning of the course onward."

Human Online Teaching and Learning: The Quest for Authenticity - 1 views

  •  
    "To humanize online teaching is to create a situation where strangers can meet by the campfire, discuss what is important to them, and depart with the sense of connection, despite the darkness, and a feeling of community. It is that feeling of authenticity."

​The Future of Online Learning Is Offline: What Strava Can Teach Digital Cour... - 1 views

  •  
    "One of the biggest misunderstandings about online learning is that it has to be limited to things that can be done in front of a computer screen. Instead, we need to reimagine online courses as something that can enable the interplay between offline activities and digital augmentation. . . . We need to focus . . . more on finding ways to robustly capture evidence of offline learning that can be validated and critiqued at scale by peers and experts online."

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic] - 1 views

  •  
    "When using Bloom's Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom's devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies." [Karen, thanks for passing this along!]

    Research findings: "Faculty who assign team projects without preparing their students to work in teams greatly increase the likelihood that students will have a negative experience and student learning and performance will suffer. Teaching teamwork content is necessary but not sufficient for important educational and performance outcomes. Providing ongoing teamwork support is critical to team success and student learning."

Patterns in Course Design: How instructors ACTUALLY use the LMS - 2 views

  •  
    This study of 70,000 courses identified five course design archetypes in terms of LMS use:

    Evaluative - heavy use of assessments to facilitate content mastery
    Holistic - high LMS activity with a balances use of assessments, content, and discussion
