Wow, another week, another screencast. I think I”m on a roll with these as another way for me to share resources. Watch for more in upcoming weeks. This one is short (7 minutes). It is my attempt to explain the categories of online learning which come in many varieties…or flavors. Here is the video:
Two of the links referred to in the screencast are already here in my blog. The other is: The Tangled Web of Online Learning.
Since there are few printed words in my screencast video I thought it might be helpful for some to see my outline and show you how I organized the categories. Here is the outline for my presentation:
Online Learning Flavors
Online Courses- LMSs with Modules, MOOCS, Digital Badging (aka micro-credentialing)
Courses can be 100% online, blended/hybrid mix, or web-enhanced
Elements-tracking, assessments, certificates/grades/credit
Google Forms, Google Slides, websites, blogs
Google Docs don’t need staples 🙂 Collaborations!
Online Learning Communities
Social Media-FB, Twitter, Scoop It, Google +
Somewhere in between formal and informal
Customized-letting learners choose material but have a common assessment
Online Resources-wikis, collaborative docs
As always, I welcome your comments and sharing.
