    11. 11. 3 User Testing <ul><li>Example </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    12. 12. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Students (1) </li></ul><ul><li>I feel there is so much more ‘power’ in the use of the tool </li></ul><ul><li>In some ways, this was better than an actual classroom </li></ul><ul><li>I think the session was a great way of learning </li></ul><ul><li>The session was fantastic </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    13. 13. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Students (2) </li></ul><ul><li>It was a little bit slow … difficult to follow with concentration. </li></ul><ul><li>I felt there was probably not enough time for the presenter to adequately answer questions. </li></ul><ul><li>The fact that there were multiple platforms for communication enhanced the experience. </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    14. 14. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Tutors (1) </li></ul><ul><li>Presenters tend to talk with too much detail. (tutor after viewing recordings) </li></ul><ul><li>The side discussions in the text box were sometimes more interesting than the presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>We had to bridge cultural gaps and develop a new culture for virtual meetings. </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    15. 15. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Tutors (2) </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching in Elluminate was quite similar to classroom teaching. </li></ul><ul><li>[SAC] is bringing back lecturing. This raises questions about the affordances and the activity style. </li></ul><ul><li>Our sessions were optional; this is risky and not good. You must plan to somehow make it valuable – or mandatory. </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    16. 16. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Tutors (3) </li></ul><ul><li>The tool is a condition to start thinking about new or other ways of doing things. </li></ul><ul><li>The tool opens up new possibilities. However, it is not possible to pre-plan properly, as the new possibilities may spring up spontaneously, or they may work differently than expected. </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    17. 17. 3 User Testing <ul><li>User feedback: DE Tutors (4) </li></ul><ul><li>Suddenly I understand the student better, because I have talked to them, heard their voice, interacted with them. I get a sense of others, which improves the understanding of the course materials. </li></ul>CDE Conference 2009
    18. 18. 4 Future Agendas <ul><li>Bring in lecturing for Distance Education students </li></ul><ul><li>Enable conversations between tutors and students </li></ul><ul><li>Encourage uptake of 3 rd to 5 th DE generation models (Taylor 2001) </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitate pedagogically sound course design & teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Taylor, J C (2001).
