Going online with education

  1. 1. Going Online with Education<br />2011 edition<br />
  2. 2. Easing into online teaching<br />Start with a class you normally teach in the classroom.<br />Add components of online learning ( “web-assisted” content).<br />Solicit feedback from the students during the next class period.<br />Tweak and incorporate. Next time, you’ll be ready for the online edition.<br />
  3. 3. Types of courses<br />Web-assisted classes – traditional in-class learning environment, but some course content and/or assessment is delivered online<br />Hybrid classes (blended) – A portion of the class is taught in the traditional method, with the rest taught using new technologies and innovative teaching methods.<br />Online classes– Gives students (and teachers) the freedom to teach from anywhere. Can be real time or self-paced—or some of both. <br />
  4. 4. Hybrid/Blended courses<br />Still allows for traditional classroom teaching methods for content that requires it.<br />Reduces demand on facilities—two classes can occupy the same room and alternate meeting days.<br />Requires determination of which course material needs to be delivered in classroom and which can be delivered electronically.<br />
  5. 5. Types of online classes<br />Synchronous Online Courses<br />Synchronous online classes meet online at the time/days of week as specified in the schedule. The classes are taught in a webinar/videoconferencing format. A reliable computer with, at minimum, a DSL Internet (broadband) connection is needed to successfully access this course. Hardware requirements include headphones, earbuds or speakers, and may include a microphone and/or web cam. The class meets online during each class period. No classroom is necessary.<br />Asynchronous Online Courses<br />The course materials are presented 100% online in a self-paced format. However a final exam on campus or in some other approved proctored setting may be required. Exams are usually administered online in a computer lab.<br />
  6. 6. Types of online classes<br />Online 50/50 Courses<br />An online 50/50 course is taught all online. The class meets online 50% of the time online during a specified time for a webinar (synchronous) and the other 50% is online in a self-paced (asynchronous) format.<br />Hybrid Synchronous Courses<br />Hybrid synchronous courses meet online 50% of the time and in the classroom 50% of the time. The 50% online is in a synchronous format via webinar. The class meets at a specified date and time each week. Half of those meetings are in the classroom and the other half are online. Two classes can alternate days using the same classroom during the same meeting period, but the same instructor cannot teach two classes in this time period because of the demands for the synchronous online portion of the class.<br />
  7. 7. Types of online classes<br />Hybrid Asynchronous Courses<br />Hybrid asynchronous courses meet 50% of the time in a classroom setting and 50% in a self-paced online setting. Two classes can alternate days in the same classroom during the same meeting period. An instructor can teach two classes in the same class period structure (i.e. TR 9:00 AM).<br />

Think of this as a seminar room whereas dimdim and skype are for lecture rooms.<br />Keep a log of chats—it’s a good resource for generating test questions.<br />
