Online Teaching Fundamentals: Designing Good Online Learning Activities—Turn DOs into Activities
One of the problems with the design of too many courses is that they are too simplistic and are too often divorced from real-life activities. Course activities are where most of the learning happens, so they need to be meaningful. Last month I talked about analyzing the DOs, the real-life activities that people DO when engaged with a given topic in a course. DOs are the real-life activities that you want students to be able to DO in the real world. All the activities and media in the course come out of this exercise. Last month I analyzed the DOs for two specific course topics for two different courses. This month Iíll add the activities that go along with each DO for each course.
