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
