Making More of your Online Course
A 6 week online course, using a popular open-source learning platform, ideal for practitioners who are looking to use their learning platform (VLE) as more than a simple repository for resources, in order to make the most of the tools available to ensure that the learner has an interactive multimedia rich experience. The course consists of five modules:
Module 1: Look and Feel - Week 1 explores the learning environment; the look and feel of the course and its importance to the learner.
Module 2: Meeting the Learners' Needs - Weeks 2 and 3 explore how the course materials can be presented in ways that meet the needs of the learner. An online learning environment provides the opportunity to present learning materials in different formats for our learners, we can use audio and video as an alternative to text based materials. We can create interactive learning objects that allow our learners to self study and interactive assessment materials that provide immediate feedback. The course materials which are stored online can support the delivery of class based sessions. They can provide self study materials or an opportunity for a learner to revisit materials as often as required.
Module 3: Engaging Learners - Week 4 explores the ways in which tools available both inside virtual learning environments and on the Internet can be used to engage learners in collaborative activities.
Module 4: Supporting Learners - Week 5 explores how learners can be supported when learning online using tools available both inside their virtual learning environment and on the Internet.
Module 5: Reflecting and Recording - Week 6 explores ways in which learners can be encouraged to reflect on their learning experience and for their progress and achievement to be captured.
