Great research into student success and the relationship between student and instructor.
elearning at eCampus ULg's curator insight, April 25, 2016 3:54 AM
Another interesting evidence than online tutors and instructor will alway be the key to success
Bryan Hauf's curator insight, April 25, 2016 9:31 AM
Most definitely agree! Instructors need to develop online community/social skills as part of their teaching competency repertoire to help shape relationships with students. Creating and engaging and collaborative community fosters many of the teaching competencies identified by Penn State World Campus and Principles of Good Practice (Chickering & Gamson).

There's always a danger in trying to make predictions, but this is a handy summary of the way trends are looking at the moment. There's nothing startling in the list, though.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 1, 2013 11:27 AM

The National Center on Universal Design for Learning has compiled a set of resources on the "What", "Why" and "How" of UDL and CCSS.

 

"The CCSS can be considered the "What" in education, i.e., the goals and expectations. It is the destination we wish our students to reach. In light of that, UDL can be considered the "How" in education, i.e., the curriculum and instructional framework teachers use to plan their lessons. In other words, UDL and the CCSS are complementary: the UDL framework provides educators with the means to maximize student attainment of the CCSS."

Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus

Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus | Will it Blend | Scoop.it
Almost 25 years have passed since Chickering and Gamson offered seven principles for good instructional practices in undergraduate education.
ech08ravo's insight:

While the state of undergraduate education has evolved to some degree over that time, I think the seven principles still have a place in today’s collegiate classroom. Originally written to communicate best practices for face-to-face instruction, the principles translate well to the online classroom and can help to provide guidance for those of us designing courses to be taught online.

Donald Clark Plan B: Krug – don’t make online learners think (about structure & navigation)

Donald Clark Plan B: Krug – don’t make online learners think (about structure & navigation) | Will it Blend | Scoop.it

"persistent global navigation at the same position on every page with a home button and tracking."

"Pages should also be broken up into carefully defined areas, clickable areas should be obvious and every attempt made to minimise ‘noise’, again a Mayer and Clark principle in online learning."

 

"technologies work best when they hide themselves in things and tasks. Technology is at its best when it is invisible."

 

“Half the number of words and half again”. Mayer and Clark showed that this is especially applicable to online learning as it leads to significant gains in retention."

"just one, or a few testers early on are more effective than a large number at the end"

 

"Keep navigation simple and consistent, use de facto conventions, avoid deep hierarchies and write for the screen not the page. And don’t forget to test – a few iterations with experts."

How Students Learn Differently in Online vs FTF Classes | Will it Blend | Scoop.it

"An offhand comment by a caller to NPR’s On Point discussion of "Big Changes in Higher Ed" about the difference in learning between online education and traditional classes got me thinking about what those differences actually are and whether one mode of learning is inherently superior to the other. Here’s my take on how learning varies between the two to help prospective students decide which path to choose in higher education."
