Instructional Strategies for Online Courses

Instructional Strategies for Online Courses | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Effective online instruction depends on learning experiences appropriately designed and facilitated by knowledgeable educators. Because learners have different learning styles or a combination of styles, online educators should design activities that address their modes of learning in order to provide significant experiences for each class participant. In designing online courses, this can best be accomplished by utilizing multiple instructional strategies. Teaching models exist which apply to traditional higher education learning environments, and when designing courses for the online environment, these strategies should be adapted to the new environment.

These 12 Unique Blogs Are Written By Professors: The eLearning Coach | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Why the interest in blogs by professors? I think academics often have a unique perspective. Think of how their community of peers, researchers and students are different than your own. Think of the journals and books they read, the research they conduct, the conferences they attend, the lectures they present, and the discoveries their students make. This gives them access to ideas and concepts that can promote distinctive thinking.

7 Things You Should Know About LMS Evaluation | EDUCAUSE

7 Things You Should Know About LMS Evaluation | EDUCAUSE | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Abstract:


At many institutions, the current LMS is five or more years old. In that time, the teaching and learning context might have changed considerably, and other products, including open-source options, have emerged, raising the question of whether an institution should conduct a complete evaluation of its LMS strategy. The LMS serves as the linchpin of an institution’s teaching and learning enterprise, and as such it should provide maximum value and flexibility for the faculty. The examination of the LMS forces an institution to take a hard look at its teaching practices, to educate the faculty that the LMS can be more than a “course website,” and to invite them to use the full spectrum of teaching tools it provides. If a decision is made to replace the LMS, such an undertaking can bring with it a steep learning curve. As changes in education delivery and redefinition of student needs continue to reshape the modern campus, colleges and universities might find themselves adapting to pedagogical changes more frequently than in the past.

The "7 Things You Should Know About..." series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.

In addition to the "7 Things You Should Know About…" briefs, you may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI Resources page.

A Quick Guide To Managing A Classroom Full Of iPads | Edudemic | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

While the iPad’s potential in formal learning environments is clear, there is a practical side to its implementation that is not often recognized until after they’re purchased. Logistics here are usually left to an over-worked school or district IT person—or worse, to the classroom teacher. At $500 each for the 16GB iPad 3, thirty iPads would be in the ballpark of $15,000—a huge responsibility financially. But did you know that iPad storage can also impact classroom management?

You may feel very excited about a resource you come across, but want to access that resource at some other date. Perhaps, you are teaching your students how to research online and they want to bookmark and create notes on websites.
