Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 1

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example, instead of creating a course simply by filling in boxes in predefined forms, I can think about the structure and format ahead of time and design it exactly how I want. I'm making a module table so I typed 'module' in the form. Let's define what I want in a module.

Also, I wanted to be able to put videos on the Event page and even on the Modules page. I need to associate each video with an event, and with a module. I could do this in either the Media Editor or the Event Editor and Module Editor.

From this I created a set of nine topics that constituted the structure of the course - the course modules. Then, for each module, I considered the topic from four distinct perspectives: philosophy, technology, media and learning. This takes me to an individual module.

In the previous segment I decided to create a course with modules and sections, and set up the modules. I'll fill out the actual content of those modules over time. What I want to do is list the course modules and events (there's only one course so I don't need to list courses).

ID - Instructional Design or Interactivity Design in an interconnected world?

Charles Jennings

Instructional design is not only seen as a core competency for learning and development/training specialists, but it’s a huge industry, too. Most learning vendors tout their ‘expertise in instructional design’ as a key reason as to why we should engage them to produce learning content.

Microsoft Expression Web Designer

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I downloaded and tested the Expression Web Designer software. Pages are designed using CSS and standard HTML elements. Somebody working the server backend (databases, etc) can very easily set up this product to allow non-technical people to design complex websites. I didn't see any explicit support for Web 2.0 - that would have been a nice touch but will probably be included later as a module or update.

Serverless Computing - An Innovative Approach to Software Development

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Serverless is an approach to software development for quickly building and deploying applications as a collection of loosely coupled modules and microservices. All designs involve tradeoffs. The biggest overhead is in the design of the application.

Another model for support

Clark Quinn

For each, my role was to lead the design. In one case, it was for a series of elearning modules. In a more recent instance, it was on a specific focus, but there were several modules that used a similar structure. So, it’s a slightly more involved approach, with a much more variable scope, but in conjunction with other approaches I’ve mentioned like critiquing content or design processes, it’s one way to get a jump on deeper learning science.

Clark Quinn

So for each module, I’m looking for a meaningful practice. For design A while ago, I argued for an activity-based curriculum. The The point was to rebel against the usual content-based curriculum, and push us to more meaningful learning. And, of late, I’ve had a chance to reexamine both the curriculum ideas, and the pedagogical implications.
