How to Humanize Your Online Class (Infographic and slideshow)

How to Humanize Your Online Class (Infographic and slideshow) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Humanized learning increases the relevance of content and improves students' motivation to log-in week-after-week. When students relate to an online instructor as something more than a subject matter expert and begin to conceive of themselves as part of a larger community, they are more likely to be motivated, be satisfied with their learning, and succeed in achieving the course objectives (Picciano, 2002; Rovai & Barnum, 2003;  Richardson & Swan, 2003).

Michelle Pacansky-Broc: 

 

"When students relate to an online instructor as something more than a subject matter expert and begin to conceive of themselves as part of a larger community, they are more likely to be motivated, be satisfied with their learning, and succeed in achieving the course objectives (Picciano, 2002; Rovai & Barnum, 2003; Richardson & Swan, 2003). The end goals of humanized online learning are fostered through integrating learners voices, engaging students in the active construction of knowledge, fostering emotional connections, and providing students with choices. Ultimately, humanized learning increases the relevance of content to learners and improves one's motivation to log-in week-after-week."

There is lots to be learned by just reading the syllabus for this two week online training from Cal-State University Channel Islands!

Blended Course Design Workbook: A practical guide

Blended Course Design Workbook: A practical guide | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Blended (also called hybrid) classrooms, in which face-to-face interaction is intentionally combined with online activities to aid student learning, are becoming more and more common. By moving content delivery such as lecture to outside-of-class homework using technology tools such as video or lecture capture, more time can be gained for active learning in-class. Moreover, the blended model is proving to be an environment that provides more self-directed, technology-mediated learning experiences for students who will be incorporating technology more and more into their professional lives post-college.
