Can content creation really be rapid?

Can content creation really be rapid? | Learning Design | Scoop.it
There has been a lot of hype around rapid content creation over recent years.  Most of it has been around tools and how effective (or not) they are.  For big company L&D professionals it’s a really interesting question.  On the one hand there’s the need to ensure employees are capable of using the tools and operating effectively.  On the other is the need to turn things around very quickly.

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos | Learning Design | Scoop.it

Well, welcome to the post that tells you what not to do. Typically, I wouldn’t use negative examples to express how to implement best practices in Moodle course design, but sometimes we all just need a clear and concise ‘what not to do’ list, don’t we?

 

For today’s blog, I’m going to share with you my personal, top ten “Moodle course design no-no’s”! When designing Moodle courses, I think the key is to keep your students’ experience in mind with every step of development. It’s important not to overwhelm (or underwhelm) your students… especially those who may be new to the Moodle LMS (or online learning in general). Staying away from the following “no-no’s” is your best bet for a fully functional Moodle course, and long-term student success!

1. Don’t forget the syllabus!
2. Don’t create a glorified file repository!
3. Don’t clutter your course with too many blocks!
4. Don’t flood your Front Page with graphics!
5. Don’t use color to draw attention or ‘look pretty’!
6. Don’t create a “link farm” with files on your course Front Page!
7. Don’t overuse one module type!
8. Don’t use modules you don’t understand!
9. Don’t overuse labels!
10. Don’t forget to have fun!
Moodle was created on the Social Constructivism pedagogy, which centers around all course participants, both teachers and learners, contributing to the learning experience. As I said above, you should always design your courses with the student in mind. Think to yourself, “Would I want to take this course?”.

Learning in your personal life vs professional life

Learning in your personal life vs professional life | Learning Design | Scoop.it

online learning
In your personal life when you want to learn something new you will usually start with a question for Google. “How Do I…” or “Why does this….”

From that search you will find articles, videos, blog posts, wikis, twitter streams, info-graphics and stories, and build your knowledge and skills by navigating these resources. Everyone will take a different route to building and discovering knowledge and skills because we all learn differently. So why don't we learn this wa in our professional life?

Design Strategies for Learning Experiences by Dorian Peters

Erica Dale's insight:

Haven't read this yet but reviews are excellent 

According to the author... "Strange as it sounds, the future of Education is now as much in the hands of digital designers and programmers as it is in the hands of teachers. And yet, as interface and user experience designers, how much do we really know about how people learn?  And how do we design environments that support the cognitive and affective sides of learning?"
