El componente gráfico de un proyecto elearning es de gran importancia para el resultado final. La producción de contenidos elearning puede moverse entre el extremo de la especialización de tareas (un gran equipo, cada quien dedicado a lo suyo) hasta el productor generalista, heredero del renacimiento que sabe de todo un poco. Independiente del rango de presupuesto que manejemos es la creatividad la que nos será útil a la hora de ilustrar de la mejor manera nuestro proyectos. Existen en la red una gran variedad de recursos que facilitan esta tarea. Compartimos esta lista elaborada por 10 formas  que sin duda […

Integrating Lean Startup & Design Thinking

Integrating Lean Startup & Design Thinking | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The Lean Startup concept is an appropriate choice for creating new businesses through development of an already existing idea or vision. Design thinking, on the other hand, might be preferred if the right business idea has not been found yet and customer needs or problems are still vague.


The Lean Startup concept is an appropriate choice for creating new businesses through development of an already existing idea or vision. Design thinking, on the other hand, might be preferred if the right business idea has not been found yet and customer needs or problems are still vague. Therefore, both approaches should be capable of complementing and benefiting from each other.

An interesting paper from Roland M. Mueller and Katja Thoring discusses the integration of both approaches, resulting in a combined process model. The authors highlight the following potentials to improve either of the two innovation concepts:

Augmented reality will likely have more uses in higher education for extending learning outside of the classroom than within it. You can add additional interactive elements to the texts the students are assigned, adding hyperlinks, audio, or images to their print textbooks.

The Age of Bite-sized Learning: What is It and Why It Works

The Age of Bite-sized Learning: What is It and Why It Works | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For many eLearning professionals, bite-sized has always been the right size.  Imagine it, more useful content that fits smaller screens or just about any screen. Learners can work on any platform, switch back from their mobile device to the desktop, anytime. Snackable content also makes it easier for them to savor every lesson step after step—something that's not possible with lengthy materials. Offer your audience light, short yet substantial content. They'll surely come back for more.


Brad Cohen, Director of Strategy at JESS3, said it best:

“Bite sized nuggets of content that are easy to consume, sometimes they're images or image-based, whose meaning can be grasped quickly, and often create deeper meaning by referencing shared experience or shared stories. And essentially it's faster than reading an explanation of the same information.”


This statement explains the rationale behind the current trend that swept the eLearning industry. From explainer tutorial videos that last for no longer than 10 minutes to short or snackable modules, it looks like bite-sized learning is here to stay. 

There are many good reasons learners seek out useful information in small chunks. You might want to take a look at some of these.

Standard based Moodle themes are now available in the Addon Repository

Standard based Moodle themes are now available in the Addon Repository | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Each of the familiar themes which used to ship with Moodle releases are now part of the plugin database in advance of them not being available by default to your fresh Moodle install. The themes that have been moved to a repository home rather than installing with any new Moodle include Binarius, Sky High, Nonzero, Nimble, Magazine, Fusion and others (many of which were part of Moodle since the 2.0 release).

 

The removal of these themes makes way for the inclusion of only two themes with new Moodle installs, Clean and More which are both Bootstrap-based responsive themes. Don’t worry though, themes are easy to add from the Moodle.org site through the plugin administration on your own Moodle install.

 

Browse the list  of themes at https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=category&id=3
