A Simple Technique You Can (& Should) Apply To Your eLearning Courses

A Simple Technique You Can (& Should) Apply To Your eLearning Courses | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"It’s easy for an eLearner to “zone out” when faced with complex course content, especially with limited existing knowledge of a topic. The instructional design challenge is how to explain complex content easily. Start by considering some premises fundamental to eLearning design."

In any course, face2face or online, one of our goals as teachers is to help students move take previous knowledge and extend it to new areas. This post provides four instructional strategies that help students make these shifts:

* Comparing

* Contrasting

* Metaphors

* Analogies

These four strategies are similar in that they require learners to compare at least two items and find similarities and differences.

They provide a "simple technique" that helps students "master complex content."

Additional information is available on each of these strategies, as well as links to additional resources.

If you are taking the CIS courses or have an online course, i would certainly look into this. Very relatable information and content!

"Today, more than ever before, technology plays an important role in society. It is changing and will continue to change every aspect of how we live. It is changing the way we communicate, the way we do business, how we learn and teach, and even it’s changing the way our brains work."

This infographic provides four key points about e-learning. When you click through to the post you will find detailed descriptions for each of the four ways technology is changing how people learn.

* What does it mean to move from individual to collaborative learning?

* What is this shift from passive to active or brain based learning?
* Technology and differentiated instruction - how does technology assist with this?  (Please note one paragraph is duplicated in this section.)

* Multitasking - Does it work?

The infographic is very simple and it worth reading the text (which is above the inforgraphic when you click through).

Being online and staying competitive is a constant process of learning, integrating new technologies, updating, researching.

"However, its proven that under most conditions, the brain cannot do two complex tasks at the same time. It can happen only when the two tasks are both very simple and when they don’t compete with each other for the same mental resources"

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"Stories have captivated us as a species since the dawn of man. Through stories, we have passed on traditions, remembered the past, and carried information across the millennia. 

And it's not just our ancestors who harnessed the power of stories, either. Stories still work to reach people, which is why we see businesses turning to the power of storytelling in branding efforts, marketing campaigns, corporate strategies, and even eLearning courses and business presentations."

Everybody likes a good story.

Once upon a time... Narratives are a great way to get information across. 

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, August 25, 2014 8:00 PM

Do you work with older students? Then you will enjoy this article about storytelling in learning. Great for introducing studnets to the need to structure online presentations as well as traditional, writing tasks.


Reading a good online presentation (from TED maybe) and then asking students to map the presentation to the story outline in this article will reinforce this learning for them.


Let me know if you give this a go - I've done similar activities with videos and story structures in primary schools and the students loved investigating the hidden structure!
