This course addresses the development of instruction for e-learning environments. Learners will use a research-based rationale for the selection and utilization of technologies for designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating instruction using an open source courseware management system. Learners will also explore the potential of 3-D virtual environments for instructional applications. Lec. 3, Cr. 3.
E-Learning Project: This project is designed to use an open source courseware management system to develop an E-Learning Instructional module. This E-Learning Lesson will consist of four lessons each with an overview, assignment, discussion activity, online quiz, and multimedia project.
Cooperative Project: This group project is designed to utilize a 3D virtual environment known as Second Life to analyze its potential instructional uses. This project also includes a team designed field trip of an instructional site within the Second Life environment.
