Course Syllabus
  1. Access & Climate Setting
    We’ll begin our journey by exploring our virtual learning environment (VLE), finding our way around some of the course resources, and in getting to know each other. As a virtual learning community, we will be working very closely together throughout the course. We’ll start thinking about how to effectively moderate online courses, and will also consider the advantages of eLearning over face-to-face training.

  2. Online Socialization
    Unit 2 is based on the concept of learning being a social process and looks at how a tutor can encourage interaction in a learner-centred online environment. We’ll also think about learner types and how to cater for these. We will learn how to develop a lively social learning environment, consider some important tutor skills, and try out a variety of digital learning activities.

  3. Information Exchange
    Online learning environments allow a multitude of ways to present multimedia content. In this unit, we’ll cover essential principles of multimedia learning, and experiment with a range of tools and online resources. This is a very practical unit!

  4. Knowledge Construction
    In Unit 4 we’ll look at how the dynamics of our initial stages of course design result in the main aim of socialisation: the establishment of a true online learning community. We’ll explore some important theory at the heart of knowledge construction, try out some more digital learning activities, and begin work on a collaborative project.

  5. Development
    In this final unit of our voyage we’ll look at how to bring a course to an end. We’ll consider assessment in the online context, and think about how to ensure that our learners leave our courses with the confidence to continue their learning autonomously. The final assessment is a collaborative group project in which you will be developing a sample unit for a course.

By the end of this course:

  • You will be fully-versed in delivering highly-effective courses in virtual learning environments
  • You will be able to deliver your own complete courses online … not just live sessions in Zoom!
