- Identify five key concepts or themes related to eLearning Design and Development and explain what you know about each.
ADDIE includes five key components to eLearning Design they are as followed:
Analyze- Analyze learners need and abilities will help determine what the needs are of the people involved. It is helpful to know the outcome of the course being taught to truly understand the design.
Design- Be sure to apply all designs to all units of e-learning, this must be done in all levels of e-learning from the curricula to the individual media components.
Develop – this phase involves software, course content, learning objectives
Implement – Is where everything comes together it involves testing, and making sure that all phases work together.
Evaluate – The content then redesign again and again, redesign but do not repeat this is according to Horton.
- Speculate on the future of eLearning and what your role in that future might be.
According to Horton (2012) some of the speculations for the future of social and technological changes we can expect.
E-learning will fade away
Advances will come more from grassroots designers
E-learning will grow by incorporating technical and social design
3. Revise the eLearning development template/instructional design process you developed earlier for yourself. Be sure to:
a) List all of the roles of people who will be involved in the typical development.
Lead developer as lead I will oversee the project, assure that the deadlines and timelines are being met. Oversee the budget and assure that everyone is working with in the restraints of the projected budget.
Subject matter expert – Is an expert in a specific topic and will assure that all the lead developer is on track for the type of subject matter being established.
Graphic designer – will be responsible for the graphics, making sure that the design of the website is nice and attractive.
Media specialist will be in control of the all media for the course, he/she will work with the graphic designer.
b) Identify your role – Lead Developer
c) Explain the type of courses or other eLearning development the template is for (higher education course, corporate training etc.)
The template will be developed to evaluate a corporate training course.
d) Provide a clear label for all included elements.
I will be using the ADDIE module to evaluate the course.
e) Provide a clear description of each included element.
f) Provide a narrative explaining how the template would be used.
I will analyze the course content and syllabus to assure that the course outcome is being met
I will evaluate the design of the course to assure that all the needs of the student and instructor are being met.
I will look at the development of the course and see where there is room for improvement
I will implement any recommendations I have for improving the course content
I will evaluate how I can re-design the course without repeating as recommended by Horton (2012)
