Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. If you are going to teach a course online or run an online learning event or an online conference, then there’s even more to being successful at that. I also did some quick searches for various kinds of things and added them into eLearning Learning (via delicious).

The UX of Co-Design: Experience Principles for Successful Client Workshops

Adaptive Path

In the past six months, I've been leading design teams of twenty, sometimes thirty people. Some of these people are designers, but the majority are managers, business strategists, front-line workers, and P&L owners. Together we have been solving big wonky strategy and design problems that matter deeply to how our client will continue to support and grow relationships with their customers in the future. Without carefully designed activities, unhappy groups abound.

The MOOC of One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What I mean by that is I want to talk about the development of the MOOC or the Massive Open Online Course. I''m one of the people who designed the concept originally in 2008. Even the MOOCs, the Massive Open Online Courses, that have followed the MOOCs that were developed by George Siemens and myself, the courses offered by Khan Academy, Coursera, Udacity, Udemy, and the rest are all based on the idea of some body of content. We say, "Well, Massive Open Online Course."

The Rise of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Many of the ideas that go into a MOOC were around before CCK08 but that course marks the first time the format came together. These two courses were of course influenced by other work in the field - the concept of open education, in which Wiley was a pioneer, with a license preceeding the Creative Commons licenses, the open wiki, which of course was made famous by Wikipedia, and more. This is what enabled the 'massive' part of 'Massive Open Online Course'.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. Distance learning therefore required the creation and distribution of learning content, of course packages that would support independent study. They had the model of the course packages, and they had the model of the classes. WebCT in English stands for "Web Course Tools." Of course, we had instant messaging.

In the case of digital learning content, fewer people are willing to pay for plain old stock, such as self-paced online courses. Because of this connectivity, the Web is an environment more suited to just-in-time learning than the current and all-pervasive course model. For web-savvy learners, entering an online course and then losing access to the system, notes and connections after the “course” is seen as ridiculous.

And don’t give in to de facto standards that dictate every course start with a pre-test. In this way, a student could complete the course days or weeks earlier than scheduled and at a lower cost for the training establishment. For learning professionals, it is important to design tests that can validate competency. This is an overlooked area of instructional design as too much effort is spent on delivering content, in my opinion.
