Learning is what the student does. It’s not the content; not the tools and resources; not what the teacher does.
As course developers and as online facilitators we provide resources and activities to help a student learn.
In designing online courses we need to put ourselves in the students shoes every step of the way.
- Why are the students here?
- What do they already know?
- What are we asking them to do?
- Why would they want to do that?
- How will they do it?
- What tools will they need?
- What information?
- Can they do it on their mobile device?
- Who will they do it with?
- What challenges do they face?
- What support might they need?
