Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine

Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth  Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

"For the past ten years, Richard Mayer and his colleagues at the University of California at Santa Barbara have conducted a series of controlled experiments on how to best use audio, text, and graphics to optimize learning in multimedia. Six media element principles can be defined based on Mayer’s work. What follows is a summary of these principles along with supporting examples, psychological rationale, and research."

I like these principles (and I like that there is some research to establish why they work)

Phil Turner's curator insight, September 19, 2013 7:00 PM

Not enough references, and not direct references, which is what my "yet to be convinced" colleagues are looking for ... but the principles are logical and probably good starting points for a bit of further reading and discussion in development workshops for professional development of higher ed teachers

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 1:13 PM

Take any e-Lesson — show it to five people and ask them what they think. My bet is you will get five different opinions about the quality of the courseware. But, wait! What if the five reviewers are educational “experts” — specialists with advanced degrees in training and education? Now you might expect a greater consensus. Based on my experience over the past three years reviewing courses with experts, I predict a little more agreement; but it’s not likely to be anything close to a consensus.

Absolutely true! 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 4, 2013 6:26 PM

E learning is different from the provision of online content. It reads as obvious, but when examples are seen, too many simply provide  content and call it 'learning' whether it be on line or paper based.

I particularly like the last sentence in this brief article

Discussion Board Etiquette

Discussion Board Etiquette | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

Annotation by Richard Gauger:

 

Lehmann, K., & Chamberlin, L. (2011, December 8). Discussion Board Etiquette. In University of Wisconsin - Stout — Schedule of Online Courses, Online Certificate Programs, and Graduate Degree . Retrieved December 14, 2011, from http://www2.uwstout.edu/content/profdev/rubrics/discuss_etiquette.html


Adapted from their book, Lehmann, Kay and Lisa Chamberlin (2009).Making the Move to eLearning: Putting Your Course Online, pp. 141-145. Rowman & Littlefield Education Publishers. (Available in hard back, soft cover, and Kindle) this web article is a fabulous resource for preparing for and understanding the etiquette of online discussion boards. Following these principles will provide the necessary civility and professionalism for students to be effective, efficient and respectful learners and class participants. From guidelines for your first posting, to comments regarding " me too" or " I agree", Lehmann and Chamberlin get right to it, and deliver solid etiquette principles.
