The eLearning Guild : eBook: Instructional Design Tips

The eLearning Guild : eBook: Instructional Design Tips | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Instructional Design (ID) is — or at least should be — the foundation for effective eLearning. Whether you are new to ID or have been designing eLearning for a while, it’s easy to get stuck in certain ways of doing things. That’s when you need some new ideas!

This complimentary eBook draws on the ideas and experience of 14 ID experts who are leading sessions that are part of The eLearning Guild’s May 2012 Online Forum on “eLearning Instructional Design: Advanced and Breakthrough Techniques.” These tips, which will enhance the way you design eLearning, are organized into four general categories:

- Research
- Design
- Development
- Project management

One-Page Builder Makes It Easy To Create Great-Looking Web Pages: Striking.ly

One-Page Builder Makes It Easy To Create Great-Looking Web Pages: Striking.ly | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it


Robin Good: Striking.ly is a new one-page website builder that picks up on the footsteps of Unbounce (without the fancy techy elements), Smore (while being more elegant and web-like), Jux and Imcreator by offering a very-easy to use one-page builder that makes it hard for anyone to create anything looking amateurish.


Striking.ly strikes the right chord for all those non-techie individuals who have great desire to start something on the web, but get discouraged by the complexity and technical know-how required to produce something that looks "professional".


By providing a set of well designed templates, that the user can edit without destrying them, Striking.ly offers a much easier path to a professional-looking web presence than most other, non-HTML-based website builder can provide.


With a free account you can create two one-pagers, and an use "some" of the templates available. By spending $10 to $16/mo you can create many more one-pagers, map them to your domain, and have access to analytics (plus Premium Support and more storage and bandwidth).

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Posted by Katie Lapi

 

"With budgets tight, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without having to shell out for a device for each student. A solution for many has been to make classes BYOD (short for “bring your own device”), which allows students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphonesfrom home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students.

 

"It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that don’t have big tech budgets, but it has met with some criticism from those who don’t think that it’s a viable long-term or truly budget-conscious decision.

 

"Whether that’s the case is yet to be seen, but these stories of schools that have tried out BYOD programs seem to be largely positive, allowing educators and students to embrace technology in learning regardless of the limited resources they may have at hand."

Google Glass and the Rise in Outsourcing Our Memories| The Committed Sardine

Google Glass and the Rise in Outsourcing Our Memories| The Committed Sardine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Yet what most struck me came later on in proceedings, when the company’s co-founder and driving force behind the project, Sergey Brin, described his excitement at a moment when he threw his young son into the air while wearing the glasses. The spectacles had captured an image of the moment exactly as he himself had seen it. It was, Brin reported, “amazing... there was no way I could have that memory without this device." It’s a striking phrase, and it suggests to me the astonishing degree to which we are becoming able to outsource aspects of our minds and memories to the tools we carry with us.

The good thing is that PowerPoint isn’t limited to linear elearning. Building interactive elearning is just a matter of learning a few techniques. And in this post, we’ll review some examples built in PowerPoint that demonstrate non-linear functionality.

It’s easy enough to take any of these types of interactions and incorporate them into an interactive, decision-making elearning course that allows the learner to explore, pull in content, and make decisions.
