The Online Environment

6 Feb

The importance of the design of an online learning environment is best summed up by Palloff and Pratt (2007). “We argue that it is not the curriculum we are converting but our teaching methodology; when our pedagogy changes, so must the course….

The four steps for creating an online course are:

  1. Defining outcomes and objectives.
  2. Choosing appropriate reading material, assignments and tasks.
  3. Establishing a topic – driven course outline
  4. Developing and aligning assessment activities with outcomes and objectives” (Palloff and Pratt, 2007, p130).

This sits well with the process I used to develop this my classest his year and will use to develop others like it in the future. In conclusion I felt my first step into online learning was a success because I saw students develop “who were confident, connected, actively involved, and lifelong learners.” (The New Zealand Curriculum Document p7).
