Lack of Training. Lack of Understanding. Fear of accountability. Source: iMoot 2015 crowd-sourced discussion by actual Moodle users
  7. 7. What colleges want Move away from repository style teaching. Break down silo based courses. Adopt new eLearning Trends. Promote active learners. Increase adoption and engagement (ETAG).

  13. 13. Nano/Micro Content Users happily consume, share or create small bits of information in their daily lives.

  24. 24. So what do we need to do?
  25. 25. As educators we need to Respond and cultivate the creative instinct of our learners and tutors and build a learning platform that is reflective of today.

  28. 28. Using outcomes-based nano content.
  29. 29. The 5 Rules of Nano Content 1. Must be mapped to a learning outcome. 2. Must be small. (Single Image, Single Question, 3 min video or 140 character text) 3. Must demonstrate understanding. 4. Must be reflective and social (discussion led) 5. Must be suitable for Mobile.
