A double up of our MOOC after a very busy couple of weeks where we are also helping out with blended learning case studies because of this course.

Week 2

What I was waiting for really – real time examples of blended learning and technology in actions. A relief that actually the things we had been trying with VLE’s , video conferencing, forums, social media and collaborative documents are all on the right track. But also a realisation that for some learners, espeically WBL, a VLE might not be the main solution. The use of apps like iObserve and Coach my video have given us great ideas and we have also started to support a QIF bid using screen capture to support off site learners and support others to create case studies based on this. Real like and online life collide!

 

Week 3

No so unfamiliar this one, with us using Moodle extensively with our learners of all levels. The tools we use within it now are great for supporting self reflection, collaboration, independent learning as highlighted in the week 3 video. Thinking about the content though has made me realise that apart from forums and and wiki’s we need more student generated content to support learning. First idea is annotated diagrams created by a group of learners and then compare this to the pre-designed version I prepared for class. I also think audio feedback would be another element to include – either for us as tutors or learners in their reflective practice. I might also start to take time at the end of a teaching session to record a 1 minute summary as one of the case studies mentioned in their video.
