eLearning Delivery Methods
eLearning Delivery Methods Stephen Hudak
As we have been discussing, students have a learning preference and by using Bloom’s Taxonomy and the Socratic Method we can enhance the student’s learning experience. Using a variety of methods that match the message we are intending to convey adds to the joy of learning. Let’s look at a few methods and how they can help VP University help you, the student!
Virtual Classroom: Many of you have attended our WEBINAR BOOT CAMPs, a week full of various topics in 30-45-minute segments. Often these are short lecture followed by a question and answer period. This allows us to provide information in a convenient forum. Students can then watch or review the video on our YouTube channel.
Virtual Classroom-Interactive: VPU’s in-class training is preceded by a training webinar with discussion, quizzes, and follow up assignments.
Recorded Virtual Classroom: As noted above our webinars are recorded for asynchronous, anytime/anywhere learning.
Audio/Video Webcast: This seldom-used method helps for small or one-on-one training. VPU will do live as-needed webinars for prospective customers to demonstrate our software, or to help a student see and do techniques rather than just reading or hearing about them such as in email or by phone. Would anyone listen to a podcast
MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses): This is the definite next step in VP University’s growth – to offer topics ion an interactive format for the student to expand their knowledge. Imagine if you are not too familiar with Varco Pruden roof panel options. You can find a short video, access a handout, or take a short course to learn even more – at your convenience!
Microlearning / Microbursts: To supplement MOOCs VPU provides quick, relevant topics to our students on many topics. To introduce a new technique, answer a common question, or just to inspire micro-“learning”, “bursts”, “minutes”, can meet this need quickly. The below is a sample of a common question in our software.
Whatever message we wish to convey there is a method to match, and more importantly, in the way the students wishes to receive this message. Anywhere/anytime information is expected. Next, we must anticipate the questions and needs and have them available!
