Faculty Showcase | TeachOnline | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The video began with a two-and-a-half minute segment of a fuzzy puppet waking up in a dorm room and then rushing across the Harvard Yard to get to this class. It wasn’t some generic puppet — it was a Muppet; apparently the dorm is around the corner from Sesame Street. And the rock-star lecture was delivered from the stage of what looked like a packed opera house, complete with props, multiple camera angles, wireless mikes and professional editing.


My virtual classroom, on the other hand, was my home office, with me sitting in front of my iMac’s built-in camera talking into a cheap microphone. The contrast just shows, I guess, what that $60,000 a year buys those Harvard kids.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Steve Doig does a fine job of capturing his Harvard EdX learning experience. More important he shares what he's learned in a light hearted, detailed, and practical manner. 


I was skeptical. I thought the title promised a bit much. However, I'm glad I read this article. It gives very sound advice on fundamental aspects of course design.  


If you're interested in creating and integrating video lectures into your online designs, this is a good place to start.

The Ultimate eLearning Course Design Checklist

The Ultimate eLearning Course Design Checklist | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Looking for a comprehensive "must-have" eLearning checklist for your next eLearning Course Design project? This is a checklist that every eLearning professional should have on hand, especially since there are so many steps involved in the eLearning course design process. 
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a good article for your instructional design toolkit.


I do love a good checklist. Quick organizations job aides like this remind you of the basics and occasionally spark a new idea.  In addition to checklists for Objectives, Assessment, Content Creation. Graphics, and accessibility, you'll find links to suggested resources for each of these areas.

Sean Morris: Asynchronous Improvisation

Sean Morris: Asynchronous Improvisation | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Sean Morris:

For example, find a way to allow your students to not just create discussions on their own, but to make those discussions not at all peripheral to the main thrust of the learning. Have students decide not what they want to discuss, but what discussions are necessary to the class. And here, I’m not talking about students voting on discussion topics that you create, but creating their own ideas for what can and should be discussed about the subject matter.

Another option: allow students to bring their own materials to bear on the learning. Ask them to write—asynchronously—a collaborative manifesto for the class that supplements (and sometimes overrides) the syllabus. If you’re teaching Moby Dick let them decide how best to embrace the book. Will they write reports, or make papier maché whales? Will they give video presentations, or collaboratively write a comic for the book online? Whatever they come up with, be prepared to invent right alongside them.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is a fine article. It will provoke your thinking about discussion centered courses.  Sean Morris offers excellent advice combined with a strong view on course design.  Don't miss this one!

Poodle: a portable, offline Moodle solution. | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Moodle works well on the web, but what about isolated educators without access to an Internet connection? Should they be excluded from online education and resources?
With Poodle, they’re not!

Created by MAF-Learning Technologies (MAF-LT) for an audience without access to the Internet, Poodle is Moodle made portable.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Poodle could provide you with an offline testing environment as you experiment with customization of your Moodle course designs.  Since is works on a flash drive, you can work almost anywhere.  It's a full moodle installation so once you get your course tweaked you can back it up and move it to your online Moodle. 


Nice little nerdy tool!
