The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses

The importance of Social Presence in Online Courses | SocialiseIT | Scoop.it

To me, Social Presence depends a lot on how participants choose to take part in an online course. Of course, it also depends on the opportunities of interaction provided during the course.


Via Nik Peachey
Anne Fox's insight:

And the mirror image of this is that the course design and online moderator needs to facilitate this social presence. #CCDFLITE #M_Housetraining

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL -- THE Journal

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL -- THE Journal | SocialiseIT | Scoop.it
In any given classroom, there are invariably learners who simply don’t connect with what’s being taught. Lectures can be easy to tune out. A textbook can feel dense and boring to finish. Even a video can pose limitations for learners with sight or hearing difficulties. When these are the only options available, some learners are bound to fall behind without requesting special support, while others will surge ahead. Differentiation is one way to bridge this gap, and another is adapting the curriculum to suit all learners, instead of adjusting it to support the needs of each one.


That latter approach, called Universal Design for Learning (UDL), operates under a handful of broad principles that mainly concern themselves with the what, how and why of learning.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 3, 5:27 PM

UDL - Universal Design for Learning promises to help us design so our curriculum can 'suit all learners'.   This is a lucid overview of an essential design principle. 

Linda Kaiser, PhD's curator insight, January 5, 5:08 PM

Incorporating Universal Design concepts into e-learning projects can really help some people learn better.  I especially agree with the comment in this article where the author says you don't have to use all of the guidelines - start small and apply these ideas a bit at a time to additional lessons.  Eventually, it will become a way of thinking when designing instruction.

Ann Luzeckyj's curator insight, January 6, 5:37 PM

I know some staff here at Flinders already use this - but for those that do not...  happy to discuss with anyone wanting more info.

Wisdom in the Age of Information: Maria Popova (Future of StoryTelling 2014) - YouTube

See the rest of our 2014 FoST films here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

“We live in a world awash of information, but we seem to face a growing scarcity of wisdom,” states Maria Popova, Founder of the website Brain Pickings. Popova believes it’s the storyteller’s role to interpret information and shape it into wisdom for the rest of the culture to share.

Peter Skillen's curator insight, October 17, 2014 11:53 AM

An absolutely clever story about the 'ladder of understanding' in which Maria Popova describes 'information as cheap and wisdom as expensive'. Share this with your students/colleagues if you are discussing 'digital citizenship' or even if you're not. :-)
