Tech 571 taylor mounts design principals module 3

  1. 1. Instructional Design Principals<br />Tech 571—Distance Learning<br />Virginia Lee Taylor-Mounts<br />July 13, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Rationalization<br />Improve Student Experiences in Distance Learning Environments<br />Diversified Instruction<br />Communication/Feedback<br />Collaboration<br />("Differentiated Instruction | Classroom Challenges | Focus on Effectiveness," n.d.)<br />
  3. 3. Diversified Instruction<br />Provides students with appropriate challenges and support<br />Should begin with an assessment to determine prior knowledge and move the student forward<br />Provides a variety of ways to interact with the curriculum<br />Technology creates new ways to interact with curriculum<br />("Differentiated Instruction | Classroom Challenges | Focus on Effectiveness," n.d.)<br />("Principles of Online Design," n.d.)<br />
  4. 4.

  5. 5. Communication/Feedback<br />Students need to know expectations<br />Information needs to be clearly communicated<br />To show emotions, use graphics, videos, & photographs<br />This helps to build excitement <br />Helps student to feel included and not separated<br />("Is Distance Learning Lacking In Communication?," n.d.)<br />("Principles of Online Design," n.d.)<br />
  6. 6. Communication/Feedback<br />Channels of communication include: email, website forums, chat rooms, & internet conferencing<br />Help the student to stay in contact<br />Provides the student a means of asking questions<br />Provides more opportunities for communication than some of the traditional classroom settings<br />("Is Distance Learning Lacking In Communication?," n.d.)<br />("Principles of Online Design," n.d.)<br />
  7. 7. Communication / Feedback-- Activities<br />E-mail<br />With instructor & classmates<br />Use a Course Management System<br /> Desire 2learn<br /> Blackboard<br /> Angel<br />Moodle<br />Notes <br />Study Guides<br />Survey Tools<br />Define objectives thoroughly <br />Wikis<br />Blogs<br />
  8. 8. Collaboration<br />Promotes interaction among students for class assignments<br />Students learning teamwork skills (21st Century Skills)<br />Creates a sense of community (Garrison, 2006)<br />Facilitates sharing of knowledge (Logan, Cowan, Herring, & Wilkes, 2009)<br />("Principles of Online Design," n.d.)<br />
  9. 9.

  11. 11. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Multimedia Principles<br />Collaboration Principles<br />Personalization<br />(Merrill, 2008<br />
  12. 12. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Multimedia--Students learn better when:<br />Words & pictures are better than words alone<br />Words & pictures need to be close on a page<br />Words & pictures need to be presented at the same time <br />Animation and narration are included rather than animation and text<br />(Merrill, 2008)<br />
  13. 13. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Collaboration--The main method of collaboration is text but technology is changing to allow for real-time collaboration.<br />Imperative to create a sense of community among the group. This helps to keep the group engaged and seeking knowledge.<br />(Garrison, 2006)<br />
  14. 14. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Collaboration– Trust must be built among the members of the group.<br />A sense of community among the group. This helps to keep the group engaged and seeking knowledge.<br />Have an area where students introduce themselves.<br />Have an area where students can post questions<br />(Garrison, 2006)<br />
  15. 15. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Personalization—Advances in technology have opened up the avenue of distance learning; information can now be shared quickly and in a variety of formats.<br />When planning instruction, it must be learner centered.<br />Effective learning takes place when students are challenged to think critically—take the material and move beyond just knowing.<br />(Teo & Leng Gay, 2006)<br />
  16. 16. E-Learning Design Principals<br />Personalization—As distance learning becomes more prevalent instructional designers must strive to create lessons that are more learner centered, giving the learner more choices in how to learn the content and how to demonstrate their mastery of the content. <br />(Teo & Leng Gay, 2006)<br />
  17. 17. Software Applications<br />Students will use software to interact in the following ways:<br />Learner to the software<br />Learner to the content<br />Learner to other learners<br />Learner to the instructor<br />(Choy, Ng, & Tsany, 2005)<br />
