7 Brain-based Tips for eLearning Success | Moving training online | Scoop.it

The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering. The following seven points look at key principles from neuroscience research paired with tips that will allow course creators to achieve effective eLearning development.

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions | Moving training online | Scoop.it

Tim Robinson: If our students think that the discussion posting is useless and not at all entertaining. It likely means that it is useless and not at all entertaining. We know this because we often feel the same way when we have to make contrived discussions posts. It’s not that our jobs are about entertaining students, but we do need to do what we can do make it at least tolerable.

 

If we can expand our understanding of the tool to get beyond just ‘discussions’ but see it as a platform for other creative ways to explore a topic, we’ll find a much richer level of learning. We can, maybe, even have some fun with it.

dawsonloane's insight:

A really useful and thought provoking infographic. The six models of blended learning are interesting. However, one might have reservations about the five proposed areas for development of further technology solutions (towards the end of the infographic). Behind these proposals there seems to be an assumptions of a top-down 'push' approach to teaching and learning. Surely the whole point of digital technology is that it enables us to get away from this 'command-and-control' approach.

The three simple steps are:

1. Return to the Learning Objectives

2. Select the best format for each

3. Design appropriate activities

 

The paper also identifies three common mistakes when moving training online:

1. taking an interactive, instructor-led classroom session and turning it into a presentation-style webcast.

2. thinking that an 8-hour, instructor-led class will be an 8-hour, live online virtual session

3.  inflating the number of participants in the live online class.

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Moving training online | Scoop.it

Mazur’s reinvention of the course drops the lecture model and deeply engages students in the learning/teaching endeavor. It starts from his view of education as a two-step process: information transfer, and then making sense of and assimilating that information. “In the standard approach, the emphasis in class is on the first, and the second is left to the student on his or her own, outside of the classroom,” he says. “If you think about this rationally, you have to flip that, and put the first one outside the classroom, and the second inside.
