  • My intro
  • Purpose of this presentation
  • Objectives for this hour
  • History of Center
  • What we do
  • Course catalog. Click to go to next page
  • Sampling of teacher professional development courses
  • Login page to LMS. Click slide to link to live site and demo a couple of courses.
  • Probably more importantwas the per course budget that adequate funding provided.
  • Sometimes it can seem like a bottomless pot of money, especially when there are large grants involved
  • Withsmart and good leadership and direction, we were always looking ahead… to a time when there would be less funding. How could we continue to produce a high quality e-learning product with less… less money, people, resources.
  • Describe the changes that occurred around 2009 Funding was cut from state budget, smaller federal budget as we closed out a large fed grant.
  • Probably more importantwas the per course budget that adequate funding provided.
  • Objectives for this hour
  • Show this objectShow in context of ad comprehension courseDescribe how this single object can be used in other courses, learning resources, state LLO, etc.
  • Same with this vocabulary LO – can be reused in multiple learning scenariosALSO – talk about
  • Another benefit to designing learning objects is that with minor tweaks, they can be used in other courses.
  • Same with this vocabulary LO – can be reused in multiple learning scenariosALSO – talk about
  • How does AKCEL design and create these learning objects
  • Describe the ways we were able to reduce costs using GA’s, in-house staff, student workers,

    3. 3. AKCEL offers a set of learning resources committed to professional excellence for teachers.
    4. 4. During this session, you will hearabout AKCEL’s adaptations tomajor funding reductions tocontinue their mission toproduce high quality teacherprofessional development.

    22. 22. AKCEL adapted by: Developing Learning Objects ◦ Reuse ◦ Repurpose ◦ Render Leveraging local talent Creating a new development model Building a new pricing structurecase study
    23. 23. Learning Objects◦What are they?◦Reuse (why)◦Repurpose (what)◦Render (how)
    24. 24. “This is the fundamental idea behind learning objects: instructional designers can build small (relative to the size of an entire course) instructional components that can be reused a number of times in different learning contexts.” (Wiley, 2000)learning objects
    25. 25. comprehension LO
    26. 26. vocabulary LO
    27. 27. Learning Objects ◦What are they? ◦Reuse (why) ◦Repurpose (what) ◦Render (how)Reuse – to use again
    28. 28.  Technology supports object-oriented approach Cost savings Time savings (rapid development) Insured high quality product for less Savings passed on to clients who may pay less and have a product in less time More clients, more businesswhy use LOs
    29. 29. Learning Objects ◦What are they? ◦Reuse (why) ◦Repurpose (what) ◦Render (how)Repurpose – to use again for a differentpurpose (from dictionary.com)
    30. 30. vocabulary LO
    31. 31. mathematics LO
    32. 32. ELL LO
    33. 33. Adolescent Literacy LO
    34. 34. Learning Objects ◦What are they? ◦Reuse (why) ◦Repurpose (what) ◦Render (how)Render – to cause to be or become; makesomething (from dictionary.com)
    35. 35.  Studied the research on LOs (meets objective, can be evaluated) Instructional designers begin to think about this as they design Takes time to make the shift ◦ to think at a more granular level ◦ to understand the back-end ◦ to storyboard differently ◦ to program objectsdesign & develop LOs
    36. 36. Redesigned the storyboard to document LOstructure LO information and media asset components Content Graphic or description
    37. 37. Developed a proprietary system to layoutLO framework for programmers Course Learning Objects
    38. 38. Developed a proprietary Adobe FLEXinterface for dynamic rendering of eachlearning object Rendering individual media components to form a Learning Object
    39. 39. How did it go?After some initial growing pains, the shiftseems to be successful with the design &development team on auto-pilot to “think”in LO mode!Just in time for mobile learning!
    40. 40. Another Cost Savings Measure…Leveraging Local Talent Video Audio Programming

    42. 42. AKCEL adapted by: Developing Learning Objects ◦ Reuse ◦ Repurpose ◦ Render Leveraging local talent Creating a new development model Building a new pricing structure
    43. 43. AKCEL developed various servicelevels, variable pricing structure
    44. 44. In Conclusion AKCEL adapted to continue beyond assured funding.AKCEL can now provide a range of high- quality learning products to the consumer at less cost, and in less time.
