According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy).

Des principes pour l'apprentissage des adultes avec une jolie infographie. Entre autre sur la motivation, je suis d'accord : un adulte doit être donné une raison pourquoi il doit apprendre, sinon cela ne passe pas.

How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?

Good ideas for better assessment of online courses!

This is a fine post from  Karla Gutierrez on Shift's E-Learning Blog. It's far more than an inforgraphic. You'll find a design glossary hyperlinked to additional resources.  Think of this as an inforgraphic sitting on top of buried treasure.  Worth digging into! 

Paula King, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 5, 2014 10:06 AM

A useful article.  GOOD summary.
