The Big Picture

  • “Any individual can participate in online education programs regardless of geographic location, age, physical limitation, or personal schedule. Everyone can access repositories of educational materials, easily recalling past lessons, updating skills, or selecting from among different teaching methods in order to discover the most effective ways of learning. Educational programs can be customized to each individual’s needs, so that the information revolution reaches everyone and personal digital libraries provide a mechanism for managing one’s accumulated knowledge resources. Learning involves all our senses, to help focus each student’s attention and better communicate educational material.”

    From: Information Technology Research:

From Here to There

When no one lives on campus, how do we easily create the presence of a community to support learning?



Start with the basics l.jpg
Start with the Basics

  • Contact information

  • Syllabus

  • Notices about coming events

  • Example

    • Communication

Designing for student success l.jpg
Designing for Student Success

  • Rethink curriculum what do students find challenging

  • Create online support to help students

  • Create case studies, simulations, and examples to develop the “enduring understanding”

  • Work with Heidi King, Robert Griffiths, and your division colleagues to create sharable learning content



Use technology and whatever else works l.jpg
Use Technology and Whatever Else Works!

  • Use multiple delivery modes such as classroom, video, web

  • May reduce classroom instructional time or conduct small group sessions for students as course content is delivered differently

  • Multiple delivery modes ideally offer an advantage over just one mode

  • Examples

    • Portal to WebCT

    • Discussions as another form of writing



The learning organization l.jpg

    • Options for classroom, video, online or any combination

    • Multiple ways to learn concepts

    • Multiple ways to demonstrate content mastery

    • Multiple learning tracks (accelerated, traditional, extended)

  • Focus on learning outcomes and individual students
