Flexible and distributed learning QAA approach Dimensions of the space for HE learning – f2f to e-modes, cohort to lone learners, on site to off site We may be usually focussed on f2f cohorts on site – but this will not always be the case.
Some practical uses of e-learning in BBS <ul><li>Getting students to develop and collaborate on an annotated bibliography (discussion board or community blog) </li></ul><ul><li>Do they have to be in class every week? Weekly assignments and feedback (quiz/survey, discussion board, community, other content areas) </li></ul><ul><li>Substituting the occasional lecture with Powerpoint and audio/video commentary – allows students to replay, or see if actual lecture must be missed (camtasia) </li></ul><ul><li>Online weeks with activities, optional tutor presence, reducing the problem of missed </li></ul><ul><li>An extra resource in the classroom, used by teacher or student, quick response, role playing academic search, streaming video to enrich and support or challenge content (internet and studentcentral) </li></ul><ul><li>Reusable learning design, eg quizzes to reinforce basic understanding, practice exam thinking (quiz or community/studentcentral) </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnostics to test competence eg in numeracy, foundations of subject, ICT (quiz/survey, workbook including tasks involving studencentral use) </li></ul>
