Designing MOOCs - A White Paper on Instructional Design for MOOCs - TATA Interactive Systems

Designing MOOCs - A White Paper on Instructional Design for MOOCs - TATA Interactive Systems | instructional development | Scoop.it

The year 2012 saw a “massive” boom in the higher education world, making MOOCs—Massive Open Online Courses—the new buzzword. From talks by educators in ed-tech conferences and forums to media reporting and micro blogging by thought leaders, just about everyone connected to the world of higher education has been talking about MOOCs since then.

Ralph Springett's curator insight, May 31, 2013 4:53 PM

I am looking for the MOOC that offers personal support through a well written downloadable framework. The study guide that is your friend in the same way a book can be a friend. Then the MOOC may have better completions. The problem is that the commercial model does not like to give things away fro free - you can only look at them on the net. That is the engagement limiting factor for current MOOCs.

3 Chunking Strategies That Every Instructional Designer Should Know

3 Chunking Strategies That Every Instructional Designer Should Know | instructional development | Scoop.it
One of the main concepts that leads to successful e-Learning course design is Information Chunking. But what is chunking? Why is it embedded in the world of instructional design?

Karen Bruce's curator insight, February 23, 2017 8:51 AM

One of the interesting elements about this article is that in step 1 of their chunking method the concept of "less is more" is highlighted. The textbook (Writing Training Materials That Work by Foshay, Silber & Stelnicki) focuses chunking on short-term memory storage but does not elaborate on how to get the important information presented. It is important to be thinking about people's capabilities when considering content. The textbook (Writing Training Materials That Work by Foshay, Silber & Stelnicki) points out that people generally remember 7 things at a time. The article also discusses organizing the information into modules and tying them together appropriately. I think this will help with getting only important information into the content too, because if something is missing or unnecessary it may become apparent when the instructional designer (ID) is creating the layout and ensuring the chunks are appropriately related and enough information is present. When keeping these concepts in mind along with this articles suggestions of boiling down the information to what is most important an ID can create successful learning material. counts

 

Karen's Response:

 

Hi, Anna!

 

Thanks for sharing such a useful resource. I appreciated the practical strategies for establishing a hierarchy, removing any redundant or unnecessary information, and organizing the material in a logical fashion. I was interested in how much information would constitute the "right amount of information," but I suspect that's a question that doesn't have a generalizable answer, since it would depend on the content and learners.

This is a popular scoop. You have good taste Anna!
Nathan Hawk's comment, February 26, 2017 7:29 AM
Very interesting read, and highly useful strategies for chunking. The second strategy (to create subgroups within groups) I think mirrors very well suggestions with our reading material due to limitations in short term memory. This is probably good design regardless of benefits to reducing cognitive overload.

Debbie Morrison - "Start Here": Instructional Design Models for Online Courses

Debbie Morrison - "Start Here": Instructional Design Models for Online Courses | instructional development | Scoop.it

An instructional design model is the place to start—it is a framework, a tool that guides the structure of a course, that leads the learner to a topic, that removes distractions, provides focus, but still allows a learner to take control. Effective instructional design also helps an instructor to teach, to guide and support learners, and to promote meaningful and active learning. When an online course is not well-designed, often the student doesn’t know where to start, is not sure where to find resources, how to interact, or how to learn. Furthermore, if a student is preoccupied about technical aspects of the course due to ambiguous instructions, glitches, or cumbersome applications, the focus becomes not on learning, but on the technology—more barriers.
