I have not had much experience with online learning as either a facilitator or a learner. This course has certainly given me insight into the process of online learning as a student of these three modules. An effective practices that I have observed and experienced so far is the incorporation of videos into the course materials. This is an effective practice for me becuase I have found these to be engaging and helpful in my understanding of the concepts covered.
Some of the key ingredients that helped make this an engaging experience for me include:
- reading the explainations of the concepts and seeing examples
- reading over the introduction of the video and the reasons for why this is relevant to content covered
- viewing the video
- writing and applying what was learned shortly after
