Developing E-learning

  • At MSc level and even degree level we should not be spooning facts into our students. They should be learning how to learn and the flexibility of finding things out.
  • 100 hours of student learning does not mean 100 contact hours. It means 100 hours that they are doing something directed to a learning objective but it might only mean 10 hours of contact.
  • Do not expect to get it right the first time. Educational development depends on multiple iterations.
  • Use the experiences of Resource Based Learning.
  • Be careful of excluding parts of your audience - audio is not very useful for some international students.
  • There is nothing wrong with basing a course around a core text so long as it is carefully integrated.
