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.

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).

This is something that can generate a lot of labour in a hurry (9 modules times 10 people means 90 badges issued.). There are two major problems with the Reader as it is currently designed: - it's slow. Right now all I have to do is type in the module and then click 'Publish'.

As with the JSON feed for Feeds in the previous post, I decided to use a 'datatype' element to make this clear (which is a major reason to make RSS this way, and not with standard Perl RSS modules - because you simply can't extra custom elements on the fly with the Perl module). -

I don't plan to analyze, except to search for a specific hashtag (I expect the API will do this for me). But I know that Chatter is run by cchat.cgi, and this in turn calls the Net::Twitter::Lite::WithAPIv1_1 module. Activities Each week of the course will feature some events.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Content as a Service

Xyleme

As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. The courses are monolithic; not designed for rapid access, and don’t work the way we’d hope on our beloved mobile devices. This includes your eLearning modules, PDFs, movies, podcasts, articles, etc. For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process.

In other words, to define the 'authors' table first, and define 'post' later, so that you can select the author table from a list when defining how to designate the post author. First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? First I had to find it - once again, Drupal's awful search made what should have been a one-minute job a ten minute exercise in frustration.

Education and Services Innovation

Blossoms aims to develop a large free repository of video modules created by gifted volunteers from around the world to assist school teachers with math and science courses. Each module builds on prerequisite material that the class has already learned. Each video is designed for viewing in brief segments, allowing the in-class teacher time between segments to engage the class in active, goal-oriented exercises.

Drupal Documentation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The problem is (a) that the Drupal website is very badly organized, and (b) searches for Drupal help are generally futile, and (c) help that is located is often obsolete or wrong In other words, the solution is out of our hands. Hence, a search for something specific displays a long list of meaningless chatter, rather than a help page. Boilerplate links to generic pages (something very common in the module documentation) should be avoided.

Charles Jennings

Traditional Model – Content-centric learning The standard approach has been to expect people to learn all the content in a structured learning event – whether it’s an ILT or eLearning module, course or programme. There is an argument that we all need to learn less if we want to know more.

It also means I can draw from the examples of Drupal designers when I do have to create some custom content. What will help is that in addition to the standard modules, which I covered in the previous installment, Drupal has hundreds of additional modules. Of course, many of these were designed for Drupal version 5, and won't work in the Drupal 5.0 Even for non-coders, anyone can make up new formats (and templates) on the fly using the flexinode module.

A reader writes, I've just changed jobs and am now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online. However, a lot of online learning is designed as though for children or younger university students.

We've been through this with learning objects, with learning design, and more: the problem of learning is not a search problem. In the 'competitive international market' a similar sort of 'convenient' education will be the norm, such as Nottingham's ' Flexible MA ' with a range of "module options to create a personally and professionally meaningful qualification" and "modes of delivery to take account of individual needs and professional."
