Moving from Content to Connection: Engaging Students Through New Interactive and Adaptive Online Learning Experiences With improvements in digital capabilities,

With improvements in digital capabilities, institutions must move beyond the traditional method of online education purely based for content provision to a comprehensive engagement-oriented ecosystem for learning. At Charles Sturt University, this is becoming a reality through the u!magine innovation unit's Online Learning Model (OLM). The OLM consists of 7 elements and makes use of online technologies to engage all stakeholder holistically to ensure a connected learning experience.
In this presentation from Online and eLearning 2017,  Julie Lindsay, Quality Learning and Teaching Leader (Online) at Charles Sturt University, explores: 
  • How u!magine is supporting interactive, flexible and adaptive learning for its students
  • Leveraging multimedia tools such as Blogs, Twitter and VoiceThread to build an engaging content learning community
  • Integrating the 7 OLM elements into subjects and across courses to improve the education experience
  • Overcoming pedagogical challenges involved with content development, teacher presence and online learning modes
Improving Student Retention and Completion through Adaptive and Personalized Learning Design

Improving Student Retention and Completion through Adaptive and Personalized Learning Design

In this presentation from Online and eLearning 2017, Kevin Bell, Pro Vice-Chancellor at Western Sydney University provides insight into accentuating student intrinsic motivation withinprogram/course design through, as Kevin terms it , ‘Gameful design.’ He describes how these principles can be used to address the challenges with learner engagement and retention in distance and blended programming. With a social agenda in mind, he reflects upon the research done into the psychology of at-risk and remote populations, collaborations with MOOC and Competency-Based programme providers and his doctoral work at University of Pennsylvania to provide insights on:

  • Understanding the psychology of learners – tying intrinsic motivators into the learning design for an adaptive and personalized learning journey
  • Gameful design – Drawing a matrix of rules and reward structures to cultivate interactive and enriching experiences for the learner on the online platform
  • The potential of these tools and systems to support at risk students.
