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:

  1. reading the explainations of the concepts and seeing examples
  2. reading over the introduction of the video and the reasons for why this is relevant to content covered
  3. viewing the video
  4. writing and applying what was learned shortly after
