Course Description

A practical introduction to the emerging best practices in online distance learning including a review of newer platforms and new Web 2.0 tools. This course surveys the dominating K-12 Internet curriculum design methods for creating effective web-based lesson units, to include but not limited to; self-paced online courses, “live” and archived webinars, and asynchronous video courses. An emphasis will be on learning to incorporate existing rich media content as a strategy to minimize the time required to generate new online courses. Emerging careers for online teachers and the impacts of innovative commercial e-learning businesses will be reviewed.

Mobile devices, such as Iphones and Ipads, and trends in mobile learning, will be reviewed for their motivational aspects for K12 students, informal community education, and “youth not in school.” We will review social media tools for creating and sharing instructional videos and “show me” video captures.

This course is designed to support innovations related directly to over $180 million in new rural broadband infrastructure in Alaska including developing 21st Century workforce readiness skills and behaviors for growing an entrepreneurial culture.

The target audience is Alaskan K12 educators. This self-paced online course is presented in a mastery learning format with instructor support for questions of any nature.
