Rapid eLearning

  1. 1. ACPET - Vic Government e-Learning Program 2010 Public Workshop Series
  2. 2. Content Methods <ul><li>Developing/Buying bespoke content (rapid tools) </li></ul><ul><li>Development/Purchase of bespoke content (non rapid) </li></ul><ul><li>Purchase of generic content </li></ul><ul><li>Informal learning content (e-books, web resources, search tools) </li></ul><ul><li>Formal collaboration tools between learner and tutor such as web conferences, Virtual Learning Environments, video conferencing, </li></ul><ul><li>Informal collaboration tools such as chat, wikis, and blogs. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.towardsmaturity.org/article/2010/03/12/towards-maturity-impact-indicator-looks-e-learning/ </li></ul>
  3. 3. Passive Learning <ul><li>Most e learning courses purpose is to share information or change/improve job role performance. </li></ul><ul><li>However, most courses focuses on sharing information rather than performance improvements. This happens because most people focus on delivering content rather than on changing job role performance. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 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>
  5. 5. Passive Learning <ul><li>Slabs of Text </li></ul><ul><li>Reading is best done offline. </li></ul><ul><li>Many elearning courses require a lot of reading. If most of your course is text-based, find a solution that best supports reading rather than building a course </li></ul>
  6. 6. Cathy Moore <ul><li>Don’t create a course unless it’s really necessary and useful. </li></ul><ul><li>Write activities in which a character faces a realistic challenge. </li></ul><ul><li>Put the information outside the course. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the course to show how to use the job aids. </li></ul><ul><li>Let the activities, not the content, drive the design. </li></ul><ul><li>http://blog.cathy-moore.com/2010/05/how-to-design-elearning-thats-memorable-and-budget-friendly/ </li></ul>
  7. 7. All shapes n sizes
  8. 8. Cater for them! <ul><li>-Reduce reliance on text </li></ul><ul><li>(Audio, Visuals, Video) </li></ul><ul><li>-Use multimedia </li></ul><ul><li>-Engage learner to think through learning activities) </li></ul><ul><li>-Put back industry knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>-Be active online (network! Play! Ask! Share!) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Pull not Push
  10. 10. Pull not Push
  11. 11. Pull not Push
  12. 12. How? <ul><li>Well designed case studies or scenarios can create a need for the learners to pull the information </li></ul><ul><li>Present some simple questions or problem-solving activities that require a solution. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Rapid e Learning <ul><li>Flexible delivery content that can be developed quickly without experts using purpose built software </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.readygo.com/web02/01web02g.htm#characteristics </li></ul>
  14. 14. Rapid e Learning <ul><li>Short learning curve </li></ul><ul><li>Navigation built in </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional design encouraged through tools structure and visual queues </li></ul><ul><li>Does not require any programming knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced features such as creating links, tests, glossary, FAQ, drill down pages are built-in. Does not require any advanced skills, programming, or HTML knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to import Multimedia </li></ul>
  15. 15. Industry Knowledge <ul><li>Complimenting E Learning approaches to ensure learners have access to industry knowledge sharing and building </li></ul><ul><li>Discussions </li></ul><ul><li>Guest Presenters </li></ul><ul><li>Audio Recordings/Podcasts </li></ul><ul><li>Group projects and presentations </li></ul><ul><li>Video Demonstrations </li></ul><ul><li>Using a Virtual Classroom </li></ul><ul><li>Problem Solving </li></ul>

  20. 20. Media Audio Pics Video Flash Text Docs
  21. 21. Media - Sound <ul><li>.wav - a format developed by Windows and used extensively on Windows operating systems </li></ul><ul><li>.mp3 - audio format that compressed sound with minimal loss of quality (i.e. audio file size is a lot smaller as an .mp3 compared to a .wav). This is the most popular sound format for music. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Media - Pics <ul><li>.gif - supports a palette with 256 colors while JPG's palette supports 16 million colors. </li></ul><ul><li>.jpg - palette supports 16 million colors. </li></ul>

  26. 26. SCORM and IMS <ul><li>SCORM –packaging of learning activities so they can be reused and tracked in a learner management system (e.g. Moodle) </li></ul><ul><li>IMS – packaging of learning content for deployment in a learner management system </li></ul>Create Learning Materials and Activities outside of LMS Import Track Assess
