Students who do have experience with authoring systems and/or programming languages can choose assignments where they fully can apply these skills.
2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
The objective of this course is for students to become able to:
- analyze learning situations;
- design learning environments;
- specify needed learning tools and technologies on the basis of pedagogical and didactic criteria;
- evaluate existing systems on their usability and didactic efficiency.
3. Course content
There are four parts: a/ technologies and systems; b/ distance education as phenomenon; c/ educational technology as discipline and d/ pedagogy-driven design of distributed systems.
In part 1 an overview is given of existing technologies and systems which can be useful for educational purposes in general.
Part 2 tackles distance education in general, and the evolutions in the field of autonomous learning.
Part 3 discusses educational technology as a discipline: after a short historical overview, the main principles, findings, methodologies, research topics, organisations and journals will be presented.
In part 4 a model for design of distributed systems for competence-based and learner-oriented education will be presented and applied.
Each part entails its assignment: a short paper on parts 1 to 3, and the elaboration of a personal concept with part 4. These assignments will be presented on Blackboard and evaluated in group.
