Activity 1

  1. 1. Activity 1 E-Learning By Donna Denise Smithwick
  2. 2. Scenario: <ul><li>I have been hired by an educational company as an instructional designer to develop and present training to employees via the company Intranet. In the past, the trainers at this company have done live, face-to-face training only. My job is to be creative in developing ways to deliver the employee training virtually. This will save the company a lot of money because they have 10 branch offices and have been flying trainers to each location on a regular basis. </li></ul><ul><li>My first task is to determine how best to deliver e-learning to the employees. I will need to research the options and then make a recommendation based on my findings. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Learning Management System According to the website, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning_management_system The definition to a learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning programs, and training content.(Ellis 2009)
  4. 4. Webinar Webinar is short for a web-based seminar that could include a lecture, presentation or workshop that is conducted over the web. Webinars are usually in the form of a speaker with limited audience interaction but audience members do have the opportunity to ask questions. Webinars can also have full participation between the presenter and the audience through telephones and speaker phones which allows convenience to all members.
  5. 5. Popular LMS Applications- part 1 Moodle is a learning management system for producing Internet-based course Web sites. It includes activity modules such as forums, resources, journals, quizzes, surveys, choices, assignments and peer-reviewed workshops. Thirty language translations are currently offered with more being developed. It is being used by a growing number of universities, schools, and independent teachers for distance education or to supplement face-to-face teaching. http://moodle.org/

  9. 9. My Recommendation & Reasons: My recommendation would be using Moodle ( which stand for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) as an e-learning tool. It is free along with many different communities with a broad range of interests. Moodle also has a user- friendly model along with various support systems for those just beginning to use e-learning. Many educators have used this system with great success and speaking over 78 languages in 208 countries.
