Interesting reading. It may be the role of the teacher is more to recognise the type of instruction required, rather than simply move towards self directed learning. In my experience many learners still need to learn how to learn - self motivation remains a long way off, with learning often driven by fairly ugly realities such as fear of being uneducated or there having no alternatives (like a job).

That said there is a need for teachers to understand this learning styles spectrum so they can provide for the wide range of needs learners present with.

Designing Moodle Courses for Mobile Access

Designing Moodle Courses for Mobile Access | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
As the adoption of mobile devices increase, so does the demand for information to be readily accessible from them. As educators, we face the challenge of getting our courses online and modifying our design to meet that delivery method. However, the “online” delivery method is complex in that it can entail a range of devices ranging from desktop computer, tablets, smartphones, to the next big thing.

Even though you might not be designing your course to be taken solely on a mobile device, there is a high chance that your students will access it in this way. In today’s post, I am going to discuss some best practices to consider when designing yours courses so that they accommodate for mobile access.

1. Use a responsive theme. Moodlerooms recently released the Snap theme for Joule. This is a responsive theme that will provide users with the best experience when accessing Joule from a mobile device. If you are using Express for your site theme, you can use Snap for individual courses or your Site Administrator can set it as the default theme for any users accessing from a mobile device or tablet.

2. Rethink your content structure. First off, you clearly have less real estate with mobile. Because of this, there is more scrolling. Evaluate your course structure and make adjustments as necessary. As you design, you might want to rethink the chunking of your content to work with the mobile experience. Also, try keeping the important content at the top of the screen, so that it is read first, not last.

3. Rethink your graphic selections and layouts. While responsive sites will adjust the size of your media elements automatically to best fit the screen real estate, you might want to reconsider the overall design selections. You will want to avoid wide images that pan across the screen, tables, and the float attribute for image layout. Also, consider removing the height and width attributes for optimal display. Lastly, performance on mobile devices can be slower, so make sure you are optimizing your media appropriately.

4. Provide students with expectations for how materials can be accessed. You can include these expectations in your course syllabus. For example, you may have materials such as interactives or documents that will require access from a desktop or laptop computer.

5. Use a video player that will work across devices. You’ve probably heard the Flash versus HTML5 controversy, and you might be confused on how to best deliver media to your students. You will want to choose a mobile friendly player. You will also want to be consistent with which player you use throughout the course. Provide students with this expectation in the course syllabus. It is ok to tell students how your videos will best be viewed.

6. Use eLearning tools that support mobile content. There are many eLearning tools that output to HTML5 allowing you to integrate mobile friendly content.

7. Design for mobile access from the start. If you are designing a new course, you have the benefit of working in the best practices from the start. Consider an iterative design approach so that you can test the mobile experience after one module is developed.

8. Consider new activities. Your students most likely have a smart phone and love to use it. Why not use this to your advantage and make use of that functionality as part of your course activities? Think about the advantages of instant polling, capturing progress or findings through multimedia, documenting field trip experiences, and recording voice for submission.

9. Try accessing your course from a mobile device. Start with the smallest sized device that you own, and work your way up. By doing this alone, you will reach your a-ha moment more quickly. Take some time to identify any challenges in your design and consider making improvements. Sometimes, small changes can make a huge impact!

10. Ask your students for feedback! Consider polling your students. Find out if they are using their mobile device and how they are using it. Are they simply using it for message, to view grades, or are they going through course materials? The more you learn about your students the better equipped you’ll be to improve your course.

Education researchers highlight BYOD as the technology practice that will best accommodate this vision of personalized learning.” According to further research, 70% of students report a significant increase in motivation for learning using mobile technology."

What You Need to Know About Mobile Learning with Moodle

What You Need to Know About Mobile Learning with Moodle | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
The UN recently reported that the number of people who own mobile phones outnumber the people who have access to flush toilets.

 

Mobile learning with Moodle can be used to deliver both static content, and multimedia content. Some examples of multimedia content are podcasts, audio lectures, and video lectures. You can also perform assessments on learners using mobile learning. Pen and paper tests can be daunting, and highly stressful. Mobile assessments can be done from anywhere, making the process more comfortable, and more efficient. Answers are recorded and stored online, for administrators to access and grade easily and quickly. As well, mobile assessments allow the opportunity to provide thorough feedback, not just checkmarks and x’s, allowing more space for users to learn, and grow. Users will be able to see whether their answer was correct, the total marks they received per answer, feedback, and what the correct answers were.

 

Every learner has different strengths and weaknesses, so mobile learning with Moodle also allows administrators to tailor the learning process to each individual learner, to ensure that they are getting all of their needs met. Communication is also enhanced, as it provides more methods to reach out. You can set up group discussions, forums, private and SMS messaging, real-time chat messaging, virtual classrooms, and video conferences.

"When smartphones first became popular, the struggle was to shrink Internet Explorer to the size of a playing card. The internet browser was the de facto app installed on every computer—it allowed you to browse the web. For many, the web browser is a computer. (See Google Chromebooks.)

 

It quickly became clear that squeezing desktop actions on handheld technology was backwards. Mobile-first thinking changed things. Facebook became mobile-first—which meant that it’s designed to not just be accessed on your phone, but work better on your phone. Websites are often now responsive, scaling to the size of your screen."

Mobile apps are increasingly popular because they allow learners to tap into on-demand, bite sized and just in time learning both wherever and whenever they want to.

 

The apps we want to highlight stick out because they deliver short, relevant pieces of information that either create awareness of the daily struggles faced by those in poverty or else provide users with the information they need to make informed decisions.

Beth Dichter's insight:

SH!FT has published a new post that looks at how one can meet social learning needs in an online environment. The post includes a link to a short video (~3 minutes) that looks at "the application of neuroscience to organizational development."

The six areas are also found in a face2face environment (although there may be students whom do not experience all of them).

To create a more effective eLearning course consider these areas as you design it:

1. Belonging to a group

2. Ability to express

3. Ability to compete

4. Ability to support and be supported by other learners

5. Ability to see what's being learned

6. Excitement about applying learning

More information is available on each of these concepts in the post.
