1 The New Learning Technologies

2 2 Learning Delivery Systems What are they? –Means by which educators deliver critical content and concepts to students Types of courses: –Campus-based –Online –Web-enhanced –ITV and telecourses –Blended –Off-campus*

3 3 Learning Delivery Systems Aspects of learning delivery systems work well –in specific situations –with certain content and concepts –with particular types of students*

4 4 Supplemental Course Sites Can be useful for integration with any of the learning delivery systems –develop simple content rich course sites –built around the learning outcomes for the course*

5 5 Supply students with foundational course information –instructor information –course syllabus –lecture notes –course presentations –handouts –assignments* Supplemental Course Site

6 6 Course site then becomes the delivery system for critical course content for which the student is responsible Leaves the face-to-face time (campus- based, web-enhanced, or blended) available for other activities*

7 7 Hybrid and Blended Programs Another option is the flexibility to develop an entire program with a combination of learning delivery systems –Labeled as hybrid or blended programs –Foundation is the web site for each course, which houses the content for the courses –Additional mix of delivery systems may be incorporated into the courses and/or program*

8 8 Hybrid and Blended Example Instructional television may be used to meet the needs of a group of geographically located students –When combined with a course web site, this can save student travel time and money institutional resources*

9 9 Learning Hub An innovative option to the standard course web site Serves as the basis for a myriad of learners co-enrolled in one course site Results in a new student status –co-enrolled students on-campus and online students enrolled in the same course site*

10 10 This type of course site is centered around one faculty member –Learning hub for online campus-based undergraduate students graduate students –Design provides a unique way by which an instructor can easily manage students and courses reduces the amount of time spent developing and maintaining individual course sites* Learning Hubs

11 11 Learning Hubs Minimizes course site development Supports sharing of resources Promotes community of learners*

12 12 Learning Hubs –Instructors can develop assignments for each learning groupgroup assignments can be associated with a particular groupgroup –Course tools can also be associated with a specific learning group or opened across various groups threaded discussion chat e-mail document sharing drop box*

13 13 Wireless Classrooms: 2 Options Wireless Classroom –Cost: $3,000 and up for one access point Mobile Cart Model –Cost: $20,000 and up depending on number of computers plus access point Can be moved from room to room Setup –Location of power, floors surrounding room, etc.*

14 14 Wireless Classrooms Training –Users will need to be trained on how to access Pedagogical –Where no lab is present, wireless allows students easy access to the Internet for use in class on projects and discussions Management –Scheduling of cart –Controlling student browsing and other non-academic uses*

15 15 Student Response Systems: Clickers Cost –eInstruction’s Classroom Performance System –Cost per student unit purchased at campus bookstore: $22.85 new and $17.15 used –Instructor system is free –Activation Activation/ all courses per trimesterActivation capped (becomes lifetime activation) Activation/ Lifetime (when made with first purchase) $13$39$35

16 16 Student Response Systems: Clickers Setup –Faculty must register course and have students register their clickers for that course –Simple hardware setup for faculty –Students must sign in at beginning of class Training –Faculty training needed to fully use software system*

17 17 Student Response Systems: Clickers Pedagogical –Provides opportunity for student interaction with content –Provides feedback to instructor about student understanding Management –Need to register courses each semester –Need for students to “remember” to bring clickers to class –Coping with dead batteries*

18 18 Podcasting using iTunes Cost –Digital recorder to create MP3 files $100--$1,000 –Sound editing software Sound Forge--$299 and up Audacity—free Setup –Creation of iTunes account or other web-accessible storage site –Recording of “live” classroom lectures*

19 19 Podcasting using iTunes Training –Need to train faculty how to best record lectures –Need to train on sound editing tools Pedagogical –Portable, on-demand –Mobile learning –Assist auditory learners –Additional way to review/access materials –Assist non-native speakers, –Provide supplementary content –Means to deliver content –Means to provide feedback*

20 20 Podcasting using iTunes Management –May not have “inherent” pedagogical value Depends on student motivation and learning context of the podcast –Need to supply and maintain iPod or MP3 players for instructors –Need to setup and maintain a repository for recordings and subscriptions*

21 21 Wikis Wikis allow anyone to easily create and edit pages, promoting group collaboration Cost –Service to host a wiki such as, or –Free with advertising –Per month or per year hosting fee ($5/month or $50/year) for advertising-free or private sites GeboGebo: http://www.gebogebo.org –Open source wiki software*

22 22 Wikis Setup –Creation of Wiki account Training –Need to train faculty how to best integrate a Wiki Pedagogical –Provides collaborative environment for groups –Provides data sharing and repository area*

23 23 Wikis Management –Need to maintain organized system –Maintain pertinence of content*

24 24 Mobile Computing Includes notebooks, Tablet PCs, PDAs, and cell phones Cost –Depends upon implementation model Integrate into room and board fees Purchasing programs through campus computing services and/or bookstore Setup –Funding for program –Wireless access points*

25 25 Mobile Computing Training –Need to train faculty on instructional options available Pedagogical –Use web-enabled cell phones to log into course sites –Use web-enabled cell phones as student response tools –Have students respond to questions posted in the course site –Use Tablet PCs for collaborative learning during presentations –Use Tablet PCs for grading*

26 26 Mobile Computing Management –Distribution and maintenance of equipment –Network load issues –Managing use* in the classroom
