  6. 6. UNINETTUNO 2006 model Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model 1. Videolessons, indexed and linked with bookmarks to learning contents related to lessons’ subjects 2. Exercises – students had to deliver one exercise per lesson of the course; Tutors evaluated and graded the exercises for each students; 3. Interactions through text-based forum and chatrooms
  7. 7. UNINETTUNO 2006 model Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Issues: 1. 16-lessons course for 30 students means about 500 exercises to be corrected by the Tutor; each course is deliverd 3 times/academic year, resulting in about 1500 exercises to be corrected per each course 2. Interactions between students and with Tutors and Professors is limited (only text-based forum and chat)
  8. 8. UNINETTUNO model - 2008 update Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model 1. UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge on Second Life 2. UNINETTUNO Virtual Classroom system
  9. 9. UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model
  10. 10. UNINETTUNO Virtual Classroom Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model
  11. 11. UNINETTUNO model - 2008 update Improvements • Application of the flipped classroom approach on SecondLife • Forum animated as preparatory sessions for Virtual Classroom events; • Collaboration and interaction part of the delivery model for all the courses • Reduced number of exercises Issues • Technical requirements for Second Life • Complex UI for Second Life • Virtual Classrooms are live sessions but text-only input for students is still a limitation • Organizational bottleneck for Virtual Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model
  12. 12. UNINETTUNO model – 2017 update Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Interactive Classrooms System
  13. 13. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Implementation process: 1. About 2 years piloting experimentations in partnership with Microsoft (started late 2015) 2. Teaching/Learning models definition (february 2017) 3. Training of professors and tutors (march-april 2017) 4. Large scale roll-out (may 2017)
  14. 14. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Pilot experimentation
  15. 15. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Pilot experimentation • 3 pilot courses for 5 course delivery phases • About 450 students involved • Different teaching/learning models tested: • Flipped classroom • Weekly revision for wiki-based collaborative activities • Shared virtual space • Technical instruction through application sharing
  16. 16. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Teaching/Learning models definition
  17. 17. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Training of professors and tutors: 1. 12 group training events 2. About 250 Tutors and 120 Professors trained 3. Individual support granted both for didactic and technical needs
  18. 18. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Large Scale Roll-out: May 2017. Main results • Interactive classrooms sessions are a requirements for all courses since May 2017 course delivery phase • 471 Interactive Classes already performed • About 5000 thousands students already involved
  19. 19. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Main obstacles 1. Technical difficulties (installation, syncronization, first-access disorientation) 2. Acceptance curve in early adoptions 3. Psychological dimensions
  20. 20. UNINETTUNO Interactive Classrooms Interactive Class System in UNINETTUNO Course Delivery Model Organizational and pedagogical impacts 1. Recording studios are no more a bottleneck: technical equipments and staff resources freed from Virtual Classroom activities; 2. Real-time collaborative learning part of UNINETTUNO model for all the courses/programs 3. Students’ role in the teaching/learning process is more active; 4. professors and tutors have a clearer idea of their classes’ learning performances and receive constant feedbacks from their students; 5. Professors and tutors experimenting on virtual shared spaces and shared applications will bring more innovation on UNINETTUNO model
