Week three: eLearning guidelines for quality

This week you will be expanding your ideas about quality and investigating the eLearning Guidelines. These were developed for the tertiary sector and may not be absolutely suitable for private training organisations (PTOs) or secondary schools. They should, however, give you some ideas about how you can go about doing some checks and balances about quality in your workplaces. If anyone finds anything more relevant to PTOs we are keen to find out and you could add the information to the Resources page on the wiki and alert the class on the Discussion there.

As you blog, please tag/label each post with eval08 as well as any other tags/labels you want to add. That way you will be able to do a search in Google and find all the posts relating to this course.

Four speakers in April
Here is some great news. Four alumni from previous iterations of this course, have agreed to present their evaluation projects as 10 min presentations with discussion. All sessions will be added to the course calendar with the web conference link.

All presentations will be after Easter on the following dates and times - and will be recorded providing permission is given:
  • Bonnie and Suzy - 3 April, Thursday - 7:30-8:30pm - evaluating the effectiveness of a DVD in Nursing - meeting link open now for testing;
  • Selena - 10 April, Thursday - 7:30-8:30pm - title to be announced;
  • Sandra - 17 April, Thursday - 5:30-6:30pm - topic is on the effectiveness of online discussion in a midwifery nutrition course. Sandra is speaking from Vancouver, hence the earlier time.
The presentations are each week and we are deviating slightly from the fortnightly real time sessions, but this is so you can get the info early to help with your ideas.
