Week Two: An overview of evaluation and quality - Activity two

Winter fog by bronwynannh
How is this for a photo from a basic cellphone? It takes a pretty good pic and certainly shows you what it has been like around my place lately. I thought this would be a good starting point to talk about quality and the reasons we need to evaluate. This week it is a good idea to start checking out the  Exemplars of previous students. I expect to have a list of potential projects available later in the week. If you have ideas already, please email me as soon as possible to discuss them.

Activity two
Detail about this week's activity (Activity two) can be found via Course activities in emit. You will end up looking at the WikiEducator page. The timetable and also up and coming activities will be listed on the Home page as a quick reminder. To find the information about this week's work, click on the tab called: Why evaluate?

This is where you will find the following instructions for Activity two,  plus a list of resources.

 Activity two
  • Use the resources to develop your knowledge about the topic.
  • Participate in the discussion about the evaluation of eLearning - on emit.
1. What do you think about the ADDIE model of educational design?
  • How much do you know about it? Please tell us especially if you use it.
  • How adequate is it for guiding effective eLearning design?
2. What type of benchmarks are you currently using to measure quality?
  • Have you used the eLearning Guidelines? Do tell us more.
  • What other benchmarks do you know about or use for evaluating teaching and learning?
 If you wish to contribute other resources for this topic, please share them on the discussion forum and also if you wish on your blog.
