Assignment and end of level gates

The course contains content that has been curated from a wide variety of sources.
We’re constantly doing our best to source the most relevant and updated information and present to you in an orderly manner to get the most of the content.

As part of the course we invite you to share your own experiences and stories.
There are some activities (gates) to explore and we encourage you to attempt all of the gates as part of each level.

We’ve shared the gates as a summary here to help you prepare yourself. 

Portfolio of work

We recommend creating a portfolio or cloud document to house your gate submissions so you can present the whole course as one presentation.
This will also make it easier for you to work on it over the duration of the course without the pressure of completing each gate fully before progressing.
Please view the videos below to see how to create your portfolio.

You can also submit a cloud document like google docs, or Office 365, or try searching for another type of free portfolio site. Plenty out there.

Some of you are also creating Google sites. More info can be found here

Google Sites training and help

Sites lets you build public sites, internal project hubs, and moreā€”all without IT help.

Week 2

Gate 2 (Types of Learning)

This gate is divided in two parts.

  1. Over to you (share some articles, videos or content)
  2. Discussion

Over to you

There is a huge amount of material related to the four concepts discussed in this level. If you know of any other interesting articles or videos to assist with implementing one of these learning methods add them into the course here.

Discussion

To consolidate what we have discussed in this chapter, I have included a design challenge for you to consider.

Look at one of your learning courses (or a learning initiative you need to implement) and consider how you can redesign and extend the learning experience using a campaign of spaced events. Explain how you will use at least 2 of the other factors discussed (microlearning, story-based learning or adaptive learning) in this campaign.

Gate 3 (Course Design)

To consolidate what we have discussed in this chapter, I have included a design challenge for you to consider.

Look at one of your learning courses (or a learning initiative you need to implement) and consider how you could use the MOOC concept and/or Social Learning in the design of the course. How would the concepts of accessibility and UDL be included in the design?

Gate 4 (Reward and Recognition)

To consolidate what we have discussed in this chapter, I have included a design challenge for you to consider.

Look at one of your learning courses (or a learning initiative you need to implement) and consider how:

  1. Gamification could be used to engage and motivate participants
  2. Badges could be used to reward and recognise achievements
  3. Evaluation will be conducted to measure the success and ROI of the program

Week 4

Gate 5 (Content Design)

An opportunity to reflect on what we have explored in this level.

What changes would you make to your eLearning content design based on what we have explore in this level?

Gate 6 (Media)

An opportunity to reflect on what we have explored in this level.

How much are you currently using video, audio and avatars in your eLearning courses? In what way would you change the use of these tools?

Gate 7 (What is Reality?)

An opportunity to reflect on what we have explored in this level.

How much are you currently using video, audio and avatars in your eLearning courses? In what way would you change the use of these tools?

Week 6

Gate 8 (Developing Objects for the eLearning Experience): Create a learning object

This gate is an opportunity to show your work. Using one of the tools we explored in the level, or choose another tool, create a short video or learning object and link to, or embed in to your WordPress site.

If you are not up for the technical component, write a one-page business case explaining why a particular tool would be suitable to develop content for your project at work. make specific association to the outcomes of the learning experience.

Week 7

Gate 9 (Authoring the eLearning Experience): Author a learning module

This gate is an opportunity to show your work. Use one of the tools we visited in this level to author a short course and share the final product here with your peers.

You may take a screencast of your course and host via YouTube or Vimeo and embed the video in your WordPress site.

If you are not up for the technical component, write a one-page business case explaining why a particular tool would be suitable to develop content for your project at work. make specific association to the outcomes of the learning experience.

Week 8

Gate 10 (Moodle LMS)

We’ll be looking at setting up our own LMS using Moodle Cloud.

Submit your Moodle URL and ensure you have email-based-self-registration turned on two allow your fellow participants to register for your site. Upload a SCORM activity as a course to your Moodle site. Do extra research to ensure your course/s that you have uploaded to Moodle are able to be enrolled by your users. Run a report to view completion data.
