SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Web-Based Solutions Technology in the Classroom Technology in Distance Education
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P An established partner with the EDTEC consortium 30+ years of experience Clearinghouse for web-based solutions Global client base
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Tonight well discuss: 1. UNUs web-based training need 2. Training Goals and Objectives 3. Our solution: Tech T-UNU-P 4. Connection between solution and need 5. SDSU Tech T-UNU-P Strengths
UNUs web-based training need Integration of technology based learning experiences into the classroom and online curricula Training of faculty to use technology for the creation, production and administration of online courses Web-Based training that is accessible from 32 satellite campuses in 15 countries Learning methodologies that meet the needs of a diverse student population
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Design and develop a WBT program consisting of 2 learning courses: Technology Integration in the Classroom (TIC) Technology in Distance Education (TIDE) Instructors will have the knowledge & skills to incorporate technology into their classes and distance education programs.
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Goals and Objectives for TIC Faculty will be able to: Use a variety of multimedia technologies Use presentation tools in optimal situations Provide students with opportunities to use technology Use a LMS when appropriate Make use of the Internet & web-based resources
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Goals and Objectives for TIDE Faculty will be able to: Set-up & administer web-based LMS Use a variety of social interaction tools (i.e. Breeze) Upload course materials & presentation features during online course meetings Use a variety of multimedia technologies Make use of Internet & web-based resources
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Web-Based Training with 9 Modules: 1. Introduction 2. Distance Education Technologies 3. MS Word 4. MS PPT 5. Learning and the Internet 6. Multimedia: Sound, Video and Graphics 7. Tools for Social Interaction 8. Authoring Tools Evaluation 9. Final Assessment: Accessible when Learner has completed Module 1-8. Qualities of the WBT: Navigation is simple Format and Layout is easy to maintain Short chunks of information Self-paced Take-away job aids Opportunities to practice learned skills in a safe environment Our Vision - TIDE
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Web-Based Training with 8 Modules: 1. Introduction 2. Psychology of Learning: Theoretical base of learning with technology Technologies 3. MS Word 4. MS PPT 5. Learning and the Internet 6. Multimedia: Sound, Video and Graphics 7. Tools for Social Interaction Evaluation 8. Final Assessment: Accessible when Learner has completed Module 1-7. Qualities of the WBT: Navigation is simple Format and Layout is easy to maintain Short chunks of information Self-paced Take-away job aids Opportunities to practice learned skills in a safe environment Our Vision - TIC
Introduction with Tutorials Quick, meaningful segments to teach use of technology.
Case Study Showcase the use of technology to enhance learning in the classroom Strategies for Implementation How to encourage and provide meaningful interactions with the technology
Job Aids and Q&A Forum: Ensures transition of knowledge from WBT to a classroom setting. Caters to answer any questions and concerns of the learners.
Simulations Allows learners to use information in context. Provides a safe, non-threatening environment to experiment and use implementation strategies. Guides learners to promote a physical surrounding that promotes collaboration.
SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Our solution incorporates the following: Training needs analysis Interactive, theory-based WBT Variety of useful technologies Pilot test for evaluation Roll-out strategy Our solution meets UNUs needs by: Analyzing the wants and needs of UNUs faculty Developing a WBT that will meet all objectives Receiving recommended feedback by actual users Presenting user success stories to promote the WBTs effectiveness

SDSUs Tech T-UNU-P Tonight we discussed: 1. UNUs web-based training need 2. Training Goals and Objectives 3. Our solution: Tech T-UNU-P 4. Connection between solution and need 5. SDSU Tech T-UNU-P Strengths
These were the original needs stated in the RFP – we should probably script comments to address each one as we go through the presentation: 2. Distance education being our primary form of reaching our faculty and staff, the design and development of Web-based Training (WBT) will be considered with the following items in mind: Readability; Navigation that takes into consideration our diversity; perhaps using icons to ease use; and Format and layout that is easily maintained. 3.The content for the WBT should: Be based on solid adult learning theories; Include video-based scenarios of best practices; Animations and job aids aimed at reinforcing best practices shown on videos; and Incentives for continued use (items such as positive feedback and letting the user know when a task is complete). 4.Two WBT courses: (1) technology integration in the classroom (TIC) and (2) technology in distance education (TIDE). Both courses should: Have well defined goals and objectives; Target the intended audience; Have formative and cumulative assessments; and Have help menus that are easily accessible and readable.
