History course (cold war)

  1. 1. History course (Cold War) with Moodle platform (24 learners aged 19-20)Pattern<br />1<br />
  2. 2. ICT skills Students' mother tongue should be used with written instructions for teaching the necessary computer skills before the first module in English starts.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. ICT support should be available throughout the course.Only a few key tools should be selected for groups with little experience of using social media. (i.g. e-mail, youtube, download-helper, flv and vlc player to see video off-line)The use of tools should require little logging in and passwords.<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Number and length of contact lessons In a blended course: 2 face-to-face lessons at the beginning to learn the necessary skills, 1 face-to-face intermediate lesson for monitoring course with regard to strengthnesses and weaknesses<br />4<br />
  5. 5. and 1 face-to-face final lesson to register the attained level of togetherness within the group<br />5<br />
  6. 6. The lessons should be long enough to properly address historical contents, ICT mastering and language problems. 60 minute lessons proved too short. 90 minute lessons were barely adequate.<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Tasks and interactionTasks should designed so that they are interesting and relevant to the learners.<br />7<br />
  8. 8. One way to achieve this is to present a comparative assessment and evaluation of contributions to the wider debates and ask the students to take part in a role playing on controversies relating to the subject. So that last lessons should be very useful to create more interaction among students. <br />8<br />
