Published on

These are my slides from the presentation I made at the FIMS Student Conference in 2012. I discussed Learning Objects for Information Literacy Instruction, what a learning object is, suggested some products that can be used, provided an overview on my review of the literature, discussed design principles using the ADDIE model, suggested some best practices and reviewed some sharing repositories.

  • What is ADDIE – and why use it
  • Resources include the product you will use to create the screencast, lesson plan can be a power power or story board works well
  • Resources include the product you will use to create the screencast, lesson plan can be a power power or story board works well
  • Was it successfulInclude a way for students to contact you to ask questions about the learning object which is separate from the email for evaluation-post in on YouTube and you will get feedback
  • I am heading back to Western for the final term of my MLIS. I will be taking a course I which we will be creating podcasts, tutorials, and other materials using a variety of open-source and proprietary technologies such as Audacity and Camtasia (LIS 9713 Internet Broadcasting).

    7. 7. Review of the literature
    8. 8. • Interoperable• Reusable• Accessible• Durable• Standardized• Manageable (STOILESCU, D. 2008)Important Characteristics
    9. 9. Pedagogy Learning styles and online learning objects (Mestre, L. S., 2010)
    10. 10.  Consistent features make learning objects more intuitive: • Language • Colour scheme • Common introductions and endings • 10-15 second introduction with images of members of the library • Closed captioning and ability to export to text • Step-by-step instructions • Combined visual and audio • Chunked (Mestre, L. S., 2010)Standardize
    11. 11.  Authentic Constructive Scaffolding Learning outcomes Challenge, interest, motivation to learn Feedback (Myers and Nulty, 2009)Design Principles
    12. 12. • Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL)• Vendors• Large sharing repositoriesReview of websites
    13. 13. OCUL Websites FindingsOCUL Institutions
    14. 14. Example: ProQuest Support & Training Tutorials US/support/training/tutorials.shtml EBSCO hpVendors
    15. 15.  MERLOT – Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching ◦ Example: Incorporating Sources into Your Research Paper (ADOBE CAPTIVATE) CAREO - Campus Alberta Repository of Educational Objects 698cbe7.29003580 Wisconsin Online Resource Center CLIP - Cooperative Library Instruction Project Repositories
    16. 16. In just 7 hours… You can design, develop and implement a quick-and-dirty learning object
    17. 17. Why? ◦ Create a 5 minute screen cast with minimal features ◦ Introduce the range of learning objectsSimple Learning Object
    18. 18. Why? ◦ Record a live presentation or lecture ◦ Self directed module selection ◦ Learn at their own pace ◦ Catch up from an absence or review contentComplex Learning Object
    19. 19. ADDIE Instructional System DesignDesign Considerations
    20. 20.  Statement of the problem Set goals and develop learning objectivesThings to consider: Audience Learning environment Accessibility issuesAnalyze
    21. 21.  Gather resources and write the lesson plan Create the assessment pieceThings to consider: Authentic assessment Accommodate learning barriersDesign
    22. 22.  Develop the learning object Test and debugThings to consider: Barriers due to technology and/or learner barriersDevelop
    23. 23.  Training - learn the software Placement – YouTube, Library website, coursewareThings to consider: Story board for flow Record voice for timing Start with basic componentsImplement
    24. 24.  Formative evaluation Summative evaluationThings to consider: Did they learn what they were supposed to learn? What worked well? How can it be improved?Evaluate
    25. 25.  Identify the tutorial’s objectives and requirements Consider learning styles Use standards and competences Authentic – solve real problems Collaboration with campus partners and librarians inside and outside the organization Increase user engagement Evaluation and AssessmentBest Practices for learning object development
