  • Note: Copyright (30 minutes) 6:05-6:35 PM Q&A: 6:35-6:45 (10 minutes) Pick a topic “snow plow.’ Ask them to go out and find an image of a snowplow on the web. Ask them if they can legally use that image? Do copyright presentation
  • Note: ( 20 minutes – 6:45-7:05) Quick tour of LMS from Horton book Show demo - http://www.e-learningconsulting.com/products/lms-demo.htm SCO = Sharable Content Object Taleo LearnCenter http://www.taleo.com/solutions/learning Cornerstone http://www.cornerstoneondemand.com/lms-learning-management Meridian http://www.meridianksi.com/ Saba http://www.saba.com/products/learning/index.htm SumTotal http://www.sumtotalsystems.com/products/learning-management/lms.html IntraLearn LMS http://www.intralearn.com/Products/intralearn.aspx Plateau http://www.plateau.com/prod/learning-management-systems.htm http://www.plateau.com/assets/learning-product-tour.htm Video segments 2 through 5 OLAT http://www.olat.org/website/en/html/index.html - Demo quickly, then - Have students go out and do this.
  • Note: (15 minutes – 7:05-7:20) Outstart – skip ahead to the end where it shows the reuse, show the any3 images SumTotal http://www.sumtotalsystems.com/products/content-creation/lcms.html Saba http://www.saba.com/saba-people-systems/learning-suite/content-management.aspx Any3 http://www.any-3.com/lcms_index.cfm OutStart http://www.outstart.com/outstart_lcms_overview.htm http://www.outstart.com/LCMS_personalization_video.htm http://www.outstart.com/LCMS_content_reuse_video.htm ATutor (open source LCMS) http://atutor.ca/acontent/
  • Note: (5 minutes – 7:20-7:25) Blackboard www.blackboard.com Desire2Learn www.desire2learn.com Moodle www.moodle.com Sakai http://sakaiproject.org/ OpenClass http://www.joinopenclass.com/open/view/t1 iTunesU http://images.apple.com/support/itunes-u/docs/iTunesU_Course_Guidelines_011912.pdf
  • Note: ( 10 minutes – 7:25-7:35) (randomly select students to answer questions – I use an automated picker tool) How might a Learning Management System support the learning strategy? Can impact learner motivation – show a path through curriculum or to competencies Connect contact to specific competencies Track performance in assessments Guide future course selection based on past selection/performance (if you like this course, you’ll like these courses) How might an LCMS support the learning strategy? Can impact learner motivation (and information delivery) by delivering content based on the specific learner Can impact information delivery by determining the media based on learner preferences How might a CMS support the learning strategy? Can support higher levels of learning through reflection and collaboration Can increase learner motivation through access to materials and connection to a community Enables activities as part of the learning strategy
  • Note: ( 5 minutes – 7:35-7:40) Our examination of LMS/LCMS/CMS hopefully sheds a new light on the management systems’ role in the learning technology architecture. Tracking and feedback . . . But, also . . . Delivery Management – who gets what Media Management – who gets what media/format Assessment Management – repurposing and reusing assets (for standards and efficiencies) Even device management – manage content for delivery in a variety of formats for a variety of devices Driven by and related to organizational strategy and performance improvement strategy Show other resources out on the Moodle site for LMS and LCMS
  • Note: ( 5 minutes – 7:40– 7:45) What do you think some of the strengths of an LMS are? Why would someone purchase an LMS? Strengths Central management Common application for access, management, reporting Automation (distribution and reporting) What do you think some of the weaknesses of an LMS are? Weaknesses Changing landscape (still no industry leader, many vendors not around long-term) Technical implementation (nothing happens the way it should) Current needs vs. future needs (need immediate solutions, plan for long-term needs) Potential / hidden costs (installation, administration, training, staffing) Considerations Technical needs (can it be supported) Strategic approach (work with other systems, part of organizational strategy) Change management Analytical / mathematical staff to analyze reports Learn more: (Post in Moodle) Reference eLearning Guild report Bersin Report - http://www.bersin.com/Lib/Rs/Details.aspx?Docid=10339574&mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRoks6nfLqzsmxzEJ8r%2F7e8sX7Hr08Yy0EZ5VunJEUWy34IJ Free tip report download: http://www.elearningguild.com/content.cfm?selection=doc.540
  • Note: (5 minutes – 7:45-7:50) What do you think some of the strengths of an LCMS are? Why would someone purchase an LCMS? Strengths Central Management Project management Revision tracking Content Search Content Management Common application Developers Learners – common interface Collaborative authoring Version control Test environment Weaknesses Range of media capabilities Potential need for other tools Learning objects Theory vs. practice – not easy to implement learning objects (shareable content objects). Context is missing. Training Needs Current needs vs. future needs (will the LCMS adapt) Potential / hidden costs Proprietary systems that might not allow content to live on beyond the LCMS system Considerations Technical Different tool to learn Another technical layer Database for administrator Strategic approach Break down course to smallest elements Manage course and manage content Media design and development still needed Want to manage good content Communication Between designer and developer Use the correct content in the correct format
  • Note: (5 minutes – 7:50-7:55) – Only go over this briefly What do you think some of the strengths of a CMS are? Why would someone purchase an CMS? Strengths Mimics traditional classroom Manage course / curriculum content Templates Monitor learning activities & results Manage assignments and grades Database of content and activities Weaknesses Mimics traditional classroom Interface and usability Limited layout/design functionality Limited built-in LCMS functions Considerations Online learning / blended learning (not just classroom support) Common styles so learners don’t have to re-learn for each class Using all of the functions to support teaching and learning (not just post syllabus) Extend functionality with add-on modules (good and bad)
  • Note: (5 minutes – 7:55-8:00) Future of Management Tools Talent Management driving learning in organizations LCMS built into LMS and CMS Social Learning Virtual World as LMS? (different interfaces) More integration with LMS, LCMS, CMS . . . And other systems Blurring lines between the three (good and bad) – i.e. LMS no longer has common meaning LTMS 625
  • Note: () LTMS 625: Learning Management & Content Management Systems Instructional Design and Instructional Development Concentration LTMS 608: Course Management Systems Instructional Technology Specialist Concentration
  • Note: (1 0 minutes – 8:00-8:10)
  • Note: (10 minutes – 8:10-8:20) ----- Skip over these tools if need the time. Will go over tools at CMS and will go over tools in LTMS 514 These are various modalities used in learning. As part of our discussion about media, we are focusing on the items in red Show examples of tools If I don’t have time, I’ll just direct them to the links on the web Text – PDF -Print to PDF -Free PDF converter (http://www.freepdfconvert.com/, https://online.primopdf.com/Default.aspx) - SHOW: Adobe Acrobat (available through Citrix) Image Tools - PPT - SHOW: Photoshop (available through Citrix) Photoshop Elements Fireworks - Gimp - http://www.gimp.org/ - SplashUp - http://www.splashup.com/ - Inkscape http://www.inkscape.org/ Screen Capture Tools Print Screen SHOW: SnagIt – overview video - http://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.asp Animation Animated GIF PPT SHOW: Flash (available through Citrix) Swish - http://www.swishzone.com/index.php Audio – we’ll talk about some audio tools in class 5 and you’ll get more experience with audio as part of your podcast project Audacity Do the media questions after showing the media technology Video (show the interface one of these, I usually show capturing something from the camera) Premiere Elements – Adobe iMovie - http://www.apple.com/ilife/imovie/ Windows Movie Maker - http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials-movie-maker-get-started?os=other Tutorials on many of these tools is available on Lynda.com. Again, these tools are a focus of the LTMS 514: Media Selection, Design and Production course.
  • Do the media questions first (15 minutes 8:20-8:35) Text Still Graphics / Photos Video Audio Animation What is the best medium for the following?: A list of acronyms to define common terminology (text) Why? Memorization of the Gettysburg Address (text, audio, video) Why? Change a tire (animation) Why? The stages of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly (graphics) Why? The impact of pollution on the environment (video) Why? The impact of improved customer service on revenue (graphics / chart) Why? Additional Selection Criteria: availability, expense, time, expertise, and technology considerations Note: (15 minutes – 8:00-8:15) Mind maps (Amanda, Jeremiah, Andrea) Flipped Classroom – Tom and Stacy talk about their experience. How’s it worked and what have been the challenges? Matt – Face-to-face leads to more personalized instruction? (How? – maybe with the flipped classroom) Ryan – Flipped classroom. What about elementary students? What about students who can’t access? Neil – Saw a recurring them in your mind mad (noted that a medium works best when paired with other mediums) Tom – Explain Coherence principal – Eliminate extraneous text and graphics. Have a purpose for everything. Tom - Redundancy principal – animation an audio is more effective without text present (also often referred to as cognitive overload) Tom – Print and text = low learning involvement. Would you agree with that? Stacy – sound and music not proven to enhance learning. Some mind maps indicated that it does enhance learning (human voice, highly memorable) Mike – students learn better when only pertinent materials are presented. Is this for everyone? Betsy – Audio should be optional. What is audio’s big downfall? What medium(s) is audio best with? Matt – Ability to use media insures the most effective approach for students in online, etc. What about the classroom? Matt – iTunesU – be able to hear from the most established thinkers/researchers – what about diversity in opinion? Richard – Audio summary of material. Great approach. Justin – Your font sets the tone for the subject matter. Resource that gives an overview of the positives and negatives of several mediums http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/mediacharacteristics.htm Consider these guidelines when working or creating graphics: http://www.garrreynolds.com/Design/basics.html http://www.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/5-common-visual-design-mistakes/ Audio recording tips – we’ll come back to some of these when we begin working with audio recording and podcasting Any questions about these short articles? LTMS 514: Media Selection, Design and Production is a course that explores these guidelines and provides an in-depth experience with media design fundamentals and tools.
  • Note: (5 minutes – 8:35-8:40) Visual representation impacts all aspects of learning Show graphic example
  • Note: (5 minutes – 8:40-8:45) Different learning styles – Dales Cone of Experience - http://tlc.ousd.k12.ca.us/tlc/sitetech/agendas/documents_81202/Dale's%20Cone.pdf Reading - 10 Seeing - 20 Hearing – 30 Seeing & Hearing – 50 Collaboration - 70 Doing – 80 The numbers are bogus. There is no research behind the percentages. http://www.indiana.edu/~molpage/Cone%20of%20Experience_text.pdf (page 5 indicates the history of the percentages).
  • Note: (5 minutes – 8:40-8:45), slides 19, 20 Media has an impact throughout the learning strategy Especially . . . Powerful tool for affective domain (emotion and modeling) Information Motivation
  • Media is a single element of the learning architecture, but it also impacts almost all other elements. Even your organizational strategy can impact your media use (bandwidth restrictions, policies, approval processes) Devices/systems also impact and play a role in media selection (i.e. size of playback window)
  • Note: () LTMS 514: Media Selection, Design and Production Core course LTMS 645: Visual Representation for Learning and Communication Open elective . . . Becoming part of the instructional design curriculum
  • Note: (10 minutes – 8:15-8:25)
  • Mind Maps due on Fridays at midnight I have been flexible the first couple of weeks, but will start turning off the assignment at midnight No mindmap for next week. Some of you are not fully expanding your mind map when you export it. There are some “+” Mind maps are to be on the readings assigned in the syllabus and on Moodle. There will be supplemental resources I give you each week. They are not part of the assignment. Reading assignments will be listed in the Reading section for each week in Moodle.
  • Presentations that are in class will need to be given on the room computer. Only an issue if you are a Mac user or if there is something special on your machine that you want to present/demo – just need to prepare to have it installed ahead of time.
  • Note: ( 5 minutes – 8:35-8:40) Goal: Systematically select a learning technology and recommend its implementation. Identify a learning technology need and goals and objectives for learning technology implementation Due: Monday, February 13 An example will be posted in Moodle. This example is much more detailed than your project is expected.
  • Note: ( 5 minutes – 8:45-8:50) Watch the Lynda.com tutorials (Do not wait until the last minute to try to get access) Podcast + Videocast Essential Training Complete by: Friday, February 10 Show them how to access it in Lynda.com Directions to prepare for working on Podcasts will be posted in Moodle – prepare for class 5
  • Post 1 question that you have for the commonwealth media service staff after looking at their web site.
  • Next class: Media Production Facility Visit Respond in the forum with a question about the facility by Monday Meet in the lobby at the University Additional topical discussion from this week (Management Systems and Media) Check syllabus for reading assignments and check Moodle for resources and directions
