eLearning Delivery Methods

by Stephen Hudak

#eLearning

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 in 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 wish to receive this message.  Anywhere/anytime information is
expected.  Next, we must anticipate the questions and needs and have them
available!
