Engaging the Online Learner

Posted on: March 3, 2011

Welcome to all my cohorts in this exciting course in our M.S. program in Instructional Design through Walden University!  The field of online learning is exploding and I am sure through the next eight weeks that we are exploring this topic, we will learn a great deal about not only what is current in the field, but also what may be possible in the future. It is an exciting time to learn about this fascinating discipline!

Hi Deborah,
I really like your blog page and I have not as yet had the chance to try out the Goanimate that you linked but it is very interesting that you did. I say this because youtube has a create a video short story and I was wondering when the trend was going to start catching the enthusiastic educators? Thanks for placing it. I feel that animations can be very relevant in educating the learner because there is so much more that can be illustrated and demonstrated where as mare words just cannot verbally compare the learning activities that can be found within. Your connectivism seems to have a nice approach along with the way that it was written and posted with the same link (Goanimate). I am looking forward to more of your posting as we move along.
