  • The e-Learning Maturity Model

Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education


E learning capability maturity model emm categories or process areas l.jpg
E-Learning Capability Maturity Model- eMM: Higher EducationCategories or Process Areas

Stephen Marshall, Victoria University of Wellington (2006):

“The key concept is that the ability of an organisation to be effective in a particular area of work is dependent on their capability to engage in high quality, reproducible, processes that can be sustained and built upon”

Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education


Capability maturity model l.jpg
Capability Maturity Model Higher Education

A process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes.

  • Linear Delivery

    • Good for describing a narrative (eg PowerPoint slides) or a process and for leading the user didactically through the material.

    • Make sure that the linearity is obvious (eg by a numbering system) and that users can go back and forward and see the complete index, otherwise it can seem like a 'forced march'.

  • Semantic net

    • Hypertext linking can be useful in presenting alternative routes to information (index pages, concept maps), but too much can disorientate the user - they get 'lost in hyperspace'.

    • Be careful with too much off-site linking, especially within paragraphs of text - you may lose your audience before they get to the end of what you have to say. It may be better to group links in a separate bibliography.

  • Discussion

    • a discussion-focused design is built around on online discussion-based activities.

  • the ability to distinguish key elements from a distracting or confusing background.

  • field dependent people tend to be more autonomous in relation to the development of high interpersonal skills and less autonomous in relation to the development of cognitive restructuring skills.

  • field independent persons tend to be intrinsically motivated and enjoy individualized learning, while field dependent ones tend to be extrinsically motivated and enjoy cooperative learning.

Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education


Holist analytic l.jpg
holist-analytic Higher Education

  • learning styles have two basic types of independent dimensions.

  • One is the holist-analytic dimension. The holists tend to view a situation as a whole, while the analytics tend to view a situation as a collection of parts and often stress only one or two aspects at a time. Intermediates will have the advantage of both styles.

  • The other is the verbal-imagery dimension, which has two basic effects: (a) how information is represented, such as verbally, imagery, or both, as well as (b) internal/external focus of attention. Generally, the imagers tend to be internal and passive, while the verbalizers tend to be external and stimulating.

Achieving the dynamic flow l.jpg
Achieving the dynamic -Flow Higher Education

  • Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing, characterized by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. Proposed by psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the concept has been widely referenced across a variety of fields.

  • Colloquial terms for this or similar mental states include: to be on the ball, in the zone, or in the groove.

Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education


Slide76 l.jpg

  • Csíkszentmihályi described flow as "being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmostTo achieve a flow state, a balance must be struck between the challenge of the task and the skill of the performer. If the task is too easy or too difficult, flow cannot occur.

  • The flow state also implies a kind of focused attention, and indeed, it has been noted that mindfulness meditation, yoga, and martial arts seem to improve a person's capacity for flow. Among other benefits, all of these activities train and improve attention.

  • In short; flow could be described as a state where attention, motivation, and the situation meet, resulting in a kind of productive harmony or feedback.

Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education


Achieving flow l.jpg
Achieving ‘flow’ involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmostTo achieve a flow state, a balance must be struck between the challenge of the task and the skill of the performer. If the task is too easy or too difficult, flow cannot occur.

Csíkszentmihályi identifies the following as accompanying an experience of flow:

  • Clear goals (expectations and rules are discernible and goals are attainable and align appropriately with one's skill set and abilities).

  • Concentrating and focusing, a high degree of concentration on a limited field of attention (a person engaged in the activity will have the opportunity to focus and to delve deeply into it).

  • A loss of the feeling of self-consciousness, the merging of action and awareness.

  • Distorted sense of time, one's subjective experience of time is altered.

  • Direct and immediate feedback (successes and failures in the course of the activity are apparent, so that behavior can be adjusted as needed).

  • Balance between ability level and challenge (the activity is neither too easy nor too difficult).

  • A sense of personal control over the situation or activity.

  • The activity is intrinsically rewarding, so there is an effortlessness of action.

  • People become absorbed in their activity, and focus of awareness is narrowed down to the activity itself, action awareness merging

  • Not all are needed for flow to be experienced
