Top 5 Tips To Convert Your Traditional Course Into An eLearning Format

Top 5 Tips To Convert Your Traditional Course Into An eLearning Format | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"Joan T. Cook raised an interesting question at the Instructional Design and eLearning Professionals' Group"

 

"How would you go about converting a face to face course to an elearning format?"

Specifically:

 

- What are the criteria for determining if a face to face course actually is convertible to elearning?


- Assuming the course is convertible, what are the considerations when determining whether synchronous or asynchronous elearning is best?


Several professionals in the Learning industry want to convert their f2f courses into an eLearning format. However, several of them do the same mistake again and again. They believe that by simply moving their content such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, audios, and documents to a Learning Management System that they have converted their face to face courses to an eLearning format. In my opinion, they have convert their traditional courses to an electronic format.

 

In this post I will present you the TOP 5 tips to Convert your Traditional Course into an eLearning format."

10 Presentation Habits My College Students – And You – Must UN-Learn

10 Presentation Habits My College Students – And You – Must UN-Learn | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it
"College students come into my classroom not only with a flurry of fears and insecurities, but also with baggage in the form of bad presentation habits they have developed over the years.

My students’ bad habits didn’t happen overnight. These habits develop through years and years of watching terrible presentations. While most of us can recognize a terrible presentation, we don’t yet have the tools to make our own presentations great.

In a class called Professional Communication and Presentation, I teach my students how to break their bad habits. These lessons apply to all presenters: teachers, conference presenters, business executives… anyone who has a speech to deliver. Read on to see how you can un-learn these habits, too!"

The Mindset List: 2016 Graduating Class

"The Mindset List for the Class of 2016

For this generation of entering college students, born in 1994, Kurt Cobain, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Richard Nixon and John Wayne Gacy have always been dead.

• They should keep their eyes open for Justin Bieber or Dakota Fanning at freshman orientation.
• They have always lived in cyberspace, addicted to a new generation of “electronic narcotics.”
• The Biblical sources of terms such as “Forbidden Fruit,” “The writing on the wall,” “Good Samaritan,” and “The Promised Land” are unknown to most of them.
• Michael Jackson’s family, not the Kennedys, constitutes “American Royalty.”
• If they miss The Daily Show, they can always get their news on YouTube.
• Their lives have been measured in the fundamental particles of life: bits, bytes, and bauds.

A topic obviously quite close to Google’s heart.

Google (which owns YouTube) built the lessons to educate students about YouTube’s policies, how to flag content, how to be a safer online citizen, and protect their identities.
