  36. 36. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Three basic steps are required for developing VET e-learning content. Each step may contain a number of additional steps depending on the type of content you’re creating or customising. The three steps are: </li></ul><ul><li>Develop </li></ul><ul><li>Package </li></ul><ul><li>Describe </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  37. 37. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Learning object: </li></ul><ul><li>a digital resource used for teaching and learning. In practice it will usually provide a self contained learning experience and related information, resources and activities. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  38. 38. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Packaging Content: </li></ul><ul><li>ensures it will be portable and can be used by software such as LMSs, or directly in a browser without further modifications by the user. </li></ul><ul><li>Technically, a ’content package‘ is a zip file which contains the actual content as well as a file containing machine readable information describing the structure, navigation and presentation of this content. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  39. 39. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Navigation </li></ul><ul><li>Creating your navigation structure in the package and not within the content means that the navigation will be able to be interpreted and utilised by software such as an LMS or browser. </li></ul><ul><li>It can also enable the use of advanced LMS features such as tracking through content and allows more flexibility for display. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, this method also maximises the available space on the screen for the actual content. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  40. 40. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Example of a Learning Object </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad Come on down to the Toolbox repository!

  45. 45. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>VET Reload Tool </li></ul><ul><li>the process of creating a content package can be a simple with the Reload tool </li></ul><ul><li>VET Reload is used for packaging and describing e-learning content. The tool enables content to be packaged so that its structure and navigation can be interpreted and applied across a range of learning management systems </li></ul><ul><li>a learning management system ( LMS ) is a software system that allows the development and delivery of educational courses over the internet. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  46. 46. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Content Package </li></ul><ul><li>a collection of files packaged together with descriptive information about the content and structure of information. </li></ul><ul><li>The IMS Content Packaging specification is the recommended way of packaging e-learning content. Technical knowledge of this specification is not required; apart from the following packaging terminology: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organisation – a grouping of content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Item – a reference to a file containing content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource – the actual content files (eg HTML, JPEG, text, etc). </li></ul></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  47. 47. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>The Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a &quot;reference model&quot; - a set of guidelines on how to use other standards in a particular context. It consists of a collection of specifications adapted from multiple sources. Which provide a comprehensive suite of e-learning capabilities that enable interoperability, accessibility and reusability of Web-based learning content. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning management systems need to support the SCORM standard, and in particular the IMS Content Packaging specification for both import and export of whole courses or units. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  48. 48. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>Content Package </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata : a structured way of describing a resource. Vetadata is the VET sector’s official standard for metadata. </li></ul>Content Packaging, Vetadata, Vet ReLoad
  49. 49. Mentoring Moodle <ul><li>The tool can be used to create IMS Content Packages, SCORM 1.2 content packages, and corresponding VET metadata (Vetadata). </li></ul><ul><li>Handout VET Reload Tool Instructions </li></ul>VET Reload Activity
  50. 50. Models of e learning Principles underpinning effective & engaging elearning Most e learning courses purpose is to share information, support learners to make correct judgments, perform new tasks or existing tasks in a new way. However, most courses focuses on sharing information rather than performance improvements. What do you expect your learners to be able to do after completing the training?
  51. 51. Models of e learning Passive Learning <ul><li>Slabs of Text </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Choice Questions </li></ul><ul><li>Few opportunities to apply knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Poor demonstration of skills </li></ul><ul><li>Inadequate follow up with face to face assessment/further training </li></ul><ul><li>High drop out rate/low engagement </li></ul>
  52. 52. Models of e learning Text Text Text <ul><li>Reading is best done offline . </li></ul><ul><li>Many elearning courses require a lot of reading. </li></ul><ul><li>If most of your course is text-based, find a solution that best supports reading rather than building a course </li></ul>
  53. 53. Models of e learning Learners come in all shapes and sizes <ul><li>Learners exhibit a variety of learning style preferences </li></ul><ul><li>Active </li></ul><ul><li>Reflective </li></ul><ul><li>Visual </li></ul><ul><li>Experiential </li></ul><ul><li>Auditory </li></ul><ul><li>Sensing </li></ul>
  54. 54. Models of e learning Lets cater for them! <ul><li>Reduce reliance on text (Audio, Visuals, Video) </li></ul><ul><li>Use multimedia </li></ul><ul><li>Engage learner to think through online material (learning activities) </li></ul><ul><li>Put back industry knowledge </li></ul>

  61. 61. Models of e learning Cathy Moore <ul><li>Character faces a challenge </li></ul><ul><li>Show not tell </li></ul><ul><li>Make learners justify their choices. Challenge their assumptions and make them think deeply about the material. </li></ul><ul><li>Contextual feedback will help learners see where they went wrong </li></ul>

  63. 63. Models of e learning Cathy Moore – example of pull
  64. 64. Models of e learning Discovery Based Learning <ul><li>Discovery Based Learning rather than telling and testing is the strongest approach for teaching most types of content </li></ul><ul><li>How do we get the learners to pull this information? </li></ul><ul><li>Well designed case studies, scenarios, decision making trees can create a need for the learners to pull the information </li></ul><ul><li>You can present some simple questions or problem-solving activities that require a solution. </li></ul>
  65. 65. Models of e learning Discovery Based Learning – Case Studies Examples of real life scenarios for problem solving and decision making to present the learner with a situation that they may one day encounter in their normal work practice
  66. 66. Models of e learning Discovery Based Learning – Decision Making Trees Present learners with situations with choices for dealing with the problem, with each choice leading to consequences and further choices The process of finding the solutions to the problems is more important than the solutions themselves.
  67. 67. Models of e learning Discovery Based Learning – Decision Making Trees Learners can investigate the possible outcomes of choosing those options. They help the learner to form a balanced picture of the risks and outcomes associated with each possible course of action.
  68. 68. Models of e learning Discovery Based Learning – Problem Based Learning Learners to solve &quot;authentic&quot; problems by the process of continually encountering the type of ill-structured problems typically confronted by workers and practicing professionals The process of finding the solutions to the problems is more important than the solutions themselves
