This will be a post with resources about developing graded assessments.
Designing for Learning
The subject of learning is a varied and complex set of ideas. Good online course design seeks to connect appropriate learning strategies with intended learning goals. These resources can help you to grow in your understanding of how you might design different types of learning priorities in order to fulfill different kinds of learning goals.
This is a post that will have resources about adult learning.
Learning occurs in three domains–cognitive (thinking/head), affective (feelings/emotions), and psychomotor (physical). As designers we need to write course objectives that covers all three learning domains. Check out these articles related to writing learning objectives.
Learning taxonomies like Bloom’s Taxonomy (revised in 2000 by Anderson and Krathwohl) are a classification system for learning objectives. These taxonomies are useful tools for designers as they write course objectives to help create effective training. Check out the following resources related to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
The design model we have adopted for Designing for Online Learning is a backward design model. You will read about backward design in Moodle in DOL Units 1 and 2 and practice it yourself as you fill out the Analyzing forms.
Here are some other links related to backwards design.
