Melissa Marshall's curator insight, May 13, 1:25 AM

A lecture might be the easiest way for information to be delivered, but it is just that - delivery. In order for students to make sense of the information, they must do something with it then and there. This study is about university courses, but it could easily apply to high school as well.

The 8 Types of Learning Events You Need to Have on Your eLearning Course

The 8 Types of Learning Events You Need to Have on Your eLearning Course | Teaching and Learning with Technology | Scoop.it

A good eLearning course requires the right combination of learning events. But what are these exactly? A learning event is a simplified description of the student's learning activity. There's an infinite number of learning strategies, but only eight learning events. It isn’t necessary to use all the events in the creation of your course. Just get acquainted with each of them to make sure you use the right combination to make your course effective.

LeClercq and Poumay's (2005) Eight Learning Events Model propose a ‘palette’ of 8 specific ways, referred to as Learning Events, that the eLearning designer can use to describe any point in the development of learning activities.
