In 350 – 500 words please respond to the following question:
a. What Activity is missing or could be added to Moodle that would improve learning? And why? Include examples and references where necessary.
Post a simplified course/lesson design based on the topic that you have chosen to focus on for the next four modules.
Your course design should answer the following questions. Format it so that it is easy to read and assess, use the heading listed here (course overview, student demographic etc)
Course Overview: What is the topic of your course? Summarize it in 2 – 3 sentences.
Student Demographic: Who is this course for? Adults? Children? Anything special about who this course is for? Do they need prerequisite knowledge or skills to do your course? Avoid making your audience too broad or too narrow to be effective for example, “this course would be suitable for anybody” is too vague whereas, “this course is suitable for adults aged 25-40 with some prior computer programming experience” gives a clear picture of who your intended students or participants are.
Course Objectives: What will the students know or do by the end of the course? Write these using Bloom’s Taxonomy action verbs. (Google examples if you are not sure how to write these, consider the objectives at the start of each module in this course.. By the end of the course the students will be able to:….)
Methods of instruction: What online methods will you use to teach the students? Readings? Videos? Simulations? Games? Collaboration?
Learning Activities: What activities will the students do to learn the material? Describe in detail one lesson or module that you would offer in your course. What are the activities? What are the objectives? How will you communicate the information?
Assessment: How will the student learning be assessed in this one lesson? how will you determine if they have demonstrated a sufficient understanding of the materials?
Materials: What resources do you need to build the course and to support student learning? Consider everything that you would need to teach this course as well as everything your students would need to participate in the course. Computers? Camera? Scanners? etc.
