Why Do Learners Drop Out of Online Courses?

Why Do Learners Drop Out of Online Courses? | Teaching Digital Ancient History | Scoop.it

"Online education is popular. So why do so many learners drop out? Enrollment in online education continues to rise, with more and more learners each year signing up as part of their college program, for professional training, or simply for personal fulfillment. Yet despite its popularity, many learners fail to complete their courses."

Low motivation isn't the same as laziness (reason #6). This is relevant for F2F learners as well.
David Lasso Garcia's curator insight, May 29, 11:11 AM
This article is very informative because it talks about the 7 major reasons why learners drop the online courses. The explanations are very useful for us, teachers in development because online courses can be part of our future jobs. Besides giving insights about the common problems and causes of online courses failure, it proposes some ways in which we can improve this kind of courses.

6 top tips to design effective Instructional Videos

6 top tips to design effective Instructional Videos | Teaching Digital Ancient History | Scoop.it

There are a number of factors that contribute to the design and development of effective learning videos. In keeping with cognitive learning theories, video text, images, animation, and audio content should be designed to minimize cognitive load:

 

Segment (chunk) content carefully.When providing tutorials, use a first-person rather than a third-person perspective.Provide both spoken narration and related imagery/action. (However, for accessibility provide a means for the learner to access the text of the narration.) Use a conversational tone in the narration.Provide advance organizers and other visual and verbal cues to assist learners in schema creation.Associate content with emotion (positive or negative) to increase motivation and retention.Give the user control by including interactive tools for searching and navigation. Doing so improves both learner performance and satisfaction (Zhang, Zhou, Briggs, & Nunamaker, 2006).

When people ask me how to get started in online education, I recommend that they begin by taking small steps. Begin by creating a course shell and transferring some of your course content to it. Then, transfer assessments and activities to the course. While still teaching face-to-face, have students begin doing some assignments through the LMS. Slowly, begin to transition from fully face-to-face, to blended, to fully online.

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality | Teaching Digital Ancient History | Scoop.it
While AR isn’t difficult or expensive to use (especially when compared to 3D Printing or Maker Spaces), it does require forethought and planning. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet with a back facing camera, an augmented reality app (many free), a trigger image (you create yourself, probably for free), and an Internet connection. Then, scan the trigger image with a mobile device app and see what happens!

Although AR isn't one of my favorite uses of technology in the classroom, I do think that it can be educational if used on occasion or as a one-off activity. Kids will certainly be amazed at what they see and you can build on that initial engagement to create real authentic tasks.
