Genial a utilização da taxonomia de Bloom nesse infografico das possiveis atividades em formato "blended"(mix presencial e on line)

Dr. Melissa A. Bordogna's curator insight, March 26, 2015 1:59 AM

At a glance, I thought this a helpful infographic.  It also made me think of the types of feedback I give my students.  In addtion to using a rubric (marking criteria), I tend to provide a fair bit of written feedback.  

How about you...Which types of feedback have you found to be very effective in terms of student learning (as oppose to time-saving for us)?

Karen Ellis's curator insight, April 1, 2015 6:57 PM

Designing and planning assesment in online learning is very important.  This infographic reminds us of the importance of making the task student centric and that  ongoing feedback is critical.

Sharon Thomson:These online group collaboration tools have enabled smooth and fast communication, collaboration among distantly located students and their instructors. Thus students can gain more from the experience of their instructors. These tools along with instructional design and implementation strategies devised by instructors has led to enhancement of knowledge and sharpening of students’ skills.

It is interesting to see the corporate e-learning world opening up to the power of collaboration and discussion. Well crafted, expertly facilitated online learning is more often found on the Academic side of the online world. This article, aimed at corporate trainers, provides a solid introduction to an essential topic.  You'll also find an eclectic list of time shifted and real time tools.

Here's a good article for your instructional design toolkit.


I do love a good checklist. Quick organizations job aides like this remind you of the basics and occasionally spark a new idea.  In addition to checklists for Objectives, Assessment, Content Creation. Graphics, and accessibility, you'll find links to suggested resources for each of these areas.

Five Tips to Improve Your Online Course

Five Tips to Improve Your Online Course | Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Because online courses have fewer opportunities for the spontaneous, real-time exchanges of the face-to-face classroom, online instruction requires a deliberate approach to design and facilitation. As Bethany Simunich says, “Online, learning doesn’t happen by chance.” In an interview with Online Classroom, Simunich, associate director of online learning at Kent State University, offered the following techniques to improve an online course:

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials | Instructional Design | Scoop.it
IntroductionA major premise of this report is that access to the curriculum for students with low-incidence disabilities is greatly enhanced by universal design. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a particular framework that applies to education. More specifically, UDL is an approach that can guide curriculum reform. A universally-designed curriculum includes multiple means of representation (to allow various ways of acquiring information and knowledge), multiple means of expression (to allow alternatives for demonstrating knowledge), and multiple means of engagement (to challenge appropriately, to motivate, and to allow learners to express and participate in their interests). A number of current contrasting approaches to universal design will be described. We conclude with an explanation of UDL. This will allow the reader to keep UDL in mind while progressing through subsequent sections until UDL solutions for curriculum access are more closely examined in our conclusion.

Guidelines for effective online discussions This resource will help you, as an instructor, consider many factors that contribute to a successful implementation of online discussion in your course. Variation and incremental development Not every suggestion provided in this resource will fit every situation. You’ll need to find what works best for your students in the context of your course; an iterative approach will likely be necessary in order to meet your learning goals. Variables like class size and personality, scheduling, and topic might require adjustments. A group with a sense of community established through in-class interaction might seamlessly continue discussions online, while another groups might require more attention.
