Educational technology will continue to be implemented incrementally in many parts of the developing world.

El rol del Diseñador Instruccional en E-learning

El rol del Diseñador Instruccional en E-learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Un elemento importante en la evolución del proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje es el uso y presentación de materiales, que ayudarán a generar un espacio de aprendizaje favorable y que deben ser trabajados bajo un enfoque pedagógico didáctico acorde a los nuevos entornos virtuales. Esto debe ser abordado por profesionales formados en la temática.
En un proyecto e-learning el protagonista que debe llevar adelante este trabajo es el Diseñador Instruccional (DI), quien tiene la responsabilidad de asegurar el éxito del proyecto.

Diseñador instruccional en e-learning: responsable del uso y presentación pedagógica y didáctica de los materiales.

Claudia Lopez Cruz's curator insight, April 15, 1:21 PM

En mi opinión es vital que consideremos al diseño instrucción al como parte del proceso de planeación sin perder jamás de vista que es el medio y no el fin en sí mismo.
.
Creo que deberemos estructurar primero, planear, y después diseñar ya que si no comprendemos el proceso del diseño de los entornos de aprendizaje, no podremos crear espacios que realmente potencien el aprendizaje de nuestros alumnos.

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.

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:
