Knowing how long a course is going to be is important for many reasons.  In an ideal world, a course should be exactly as long as it needs to be to meet its goals—not a minute less, not a minute more.

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu | Upgrading Online | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT:


What considerations support the decision to either augment or replace an institution’s existing learning management system (LMS) with a cloud-based, Web 2.0 technology tool to support students’ learning? The use of instructional technologies should be evaluated against a backdrop of pedagogical objectives, and students’ selection of tools to support their learning can result in a more collaborative, constructive, and authentic learning experience. Instructors must balance the benefit of introducing new technology tools into the curriculum with the additional load—for instructors (supporting the tool) and students (learning the tool).This paper describes the experiences of an online graduate program in instructional technology at Georgia Southern University (GSU) and the program faculty who have chosen to move beyond the LMS.

The eLearning Guild : 68 Tips for eLearning Engagement and Interactivity

The eLearning Guild : 68 Tips for eLearning Engagement and Interactivity | Upgrading Online | Scoop.it

Free download, registration required

 

From the website

 

"Engagement is a critical element of learning. If we can get people to pay attention to what we’ve developed or what we’re saying and engage with

us, the content, and each other, learning follows.

 

"Gaining and maintaining engagement in the physical classroom seems straightforward: If learners look bored or inattentive, we adjust our training style on the fly or call on people to recapture their attention. But in eLearning, especially self-paced eLearning, driving engagement requires much more planning, monitoring, and, most of all, creativity.

 

"So how do we drive engagement in eLearning and mLearning? Interactivities can help, but only if we design those interactivities effectively. Learners also need engaging content, an engaging (or at least not frustrating) interface, engaging media and visual design, and maybe a game here and there. In this eBook, experts provide 68 tips for making sure your learners are fully engaged, in areas including:

 

Creating engaging content

Creating an engaging interface

Using interactivities to drive engagement

Using media and visual design effectively

Using games for learning

Measuring engagement and learning"
