Online Student Tips

Tue, 31 May 2011 10:12:00 +0000

Here are some useful tips to make sure online students get started on the right step and get the most out of a course.

*Get organized. Just because the course is not face to face doesn’t mean you don’t need a notebook and binder. Print out the syllabus and all the weekly agendas ahead in the beginning and start a course “paper” file. Also, start a “digital” file on your desktop for all your course files. Make a list of all your links and passwords that you will need.

*Being an online student requires self-discipline and strong time management skills. I suggest that you set up a weekly rhythm for yourself. Put aside a couple set days and chunks of time throughout the week that you will commit to working on the course. Then, along with key dates from the syllabus, put it on your calendar and make it a weekly routine. You cannot expect do all of the week’s reading, posting, replying, and project work at the end of the week; you must spread it out throughout the week.

*Draft it. It is a good idea to start a digital file like “class log” and draft all your discussion responses in Google Docs, Microsoft Word or OneNote before posting, as this can save time and the frustration of a browser crashing.  This is also helpful because you can catch spelling and grammatical errors more easily. In addition you have a backed up copy of all your work that you can refer to later.

*Back it up. Use must have a back-up plan for your computer and internet access such as knowing when your public library or local coffee shop is open so that you can use their systems or free wireless. Backing up your files frequently on a jump drive or uploading them online should be a regular habit.  Personally, I swear by Dropbox.(image)

Discussion Portfolio

Mon, 09 May 2011 23:38:00 +0000

I have played with discussion rubrics in the past and found it very tedious to count posts and comments then nit pick on mechanics, then check citations and name drops, then assign, grade, and track a weekly participation point grade.  To me, I have felt that discussion boards should be less formal and more organic and natural and by overly evaluating them, instructors could crush natural collaboration and communication.  Lately, I  have been using the Community of Inquiry framework for students to holistically self evaluate and peer evaluate each other on their overall and total participation throughout the course.  Recently, I have found a participation portfolio that seems interesting.

More specifically, we are examining the role academic advisors can play in using e-portfolios as a blended advising strategy to engage students across a-curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular learning experiences. The FYS-EPI has 3 main objectives: 1) Projects & Pilots: to design and test an open courseware, integrated e-portfolio system; 2) University Outreach & Collaboration: to develop a portfolio “culture” across student and academic affairs through student and faculty buy-in, workshops and professional development; and 3) Research: to systematically measure the qualities, programs, practices, conditions, and impact of e-portfolios in higher education on student engagement and report findings.Outcomes:Program participants will:•Be introduced to an innovative blended advising approach•Assess a collaborative approach to fusing academic and student affairs•Analyze the role e-portfolios can play to support student, success, learning, and engagement•Examine a First Year program•Debate, critique, and judge the role technology can play towards student successNote: Slides will be posted soon.Let's continue the conversation afterwards by commenting below. Feel free to contact the author if you are interested in collaborating. [...]

Google Unconference Sessions

Wed, 01 Sep 2010 20:43:00 +0000

I just got back from a Google Apps in Education Summit at their headquarters and one of things I was most impressed with their corporate culture was their "unconference" formats.  They are meant to turn the traditional top-down information overload content delivery of normal presentations to a bottom-up, upside down, and side-to-side dynamic that sparks maximum interaction, innovation, and ideas among participants.

Googlios: 21st Century Skills & Learning in the Digital Age

Wed, 28 Jul 2010 13:45:00 +0000

This was a Paper/Slideshow Presentation for the: 2010 Midwest Moodle Moot ConferenceView and listen to the slidecast (PowerPoint + audio narration podcast) below.  The Best way to view a slidecast: Hit the center play button to listen to the slide narration or use the side arrows to skip through slide by slide.  You can hit the full screen button on the right side or watch slidecast in one window. The talk is 30 minutes long, then there is 18 mins of Q&A afterwards. Feel free to contact me if your interested in collaborating or communicating.  Enjoy.Abstract::This (paper/slideshow presentation) talk will not be a "how to"; instead, it offers a "why to." The presentation aims to answer the following questions. How can educators best meet the learning needs of the millennial generation of students? How has learning changed in the 21st century? What are the essential skills needed to survive and thrive in today's and tomorrow's global digital workplace? Have educators been effectively  integrating technology into the classroom? After a decade into the 21st century, it is time our learning theory catch up with technology.  Constructivism learning theory is transforming into "Connectivism." Bloom's taxonomy is evolving into "Bloom's digital taxonomy." Gardner's multiple intelligences theory can now be seen through a "multimedia multiple intelligences" lens. By upgrading our learning theories to the 21st century we can connect the pedagogy to the technology and get the horse back in front of the cart. This presentation argues that Googlios (Google Sites meets E-Portfolios) could provide the 21st-century educator with an outcomes and project based approach in order to successfully infuse technology into the classroom and transform education.
