EPALE

Elektroniczna platforma na rzecz uczenia się dorosłych w Europie

 
 

E-learning

Across the academic year 2015/16, the Interactive Design Institute contributed a series of articles by Michael Stewart on the topic of online education and eLearning to EPALE, a multilingual open membership community funded by the European Commission.

This document brings together the series of articles submitted to the UK National Support Service for EPALE, giving an insight to online education and eLearning from a national perspective and for the distribution and discussion amongst researchers and academics within the profession.

A group of educators from Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Spain identified the need for individuals who are experts in their subject matter but not experts in technology and pedagogy to be able to create a MOOC. The course ‘moocs4all, Making MOOCs on a Budget’ provides people with the know-how and connects them to a community of others with the same goal. The course began on May 17, 2016, and will run for a further 3 months, so sign up now!

EMMA is a 30-month pilot action supported by the European Commission that provides an innovative system for the delivery of free, open, online courses (MOOCs) in multiple languages. EMMA hosts a growing number of high-quality multilingual MOOCs from renowned educational institutions and organizations worldwide and they are currently interested in reaching the European project community.

That's why EMMA offers (to institutions with proven experience and expertise) to host a MOOC on the EMMA platform at no cost provided it starts by July 31st 2016.

Online learning provides a vehicle which has the potential to enable the recruitment of an extraordinary number of students; cohorts can include those previously excluded for reasons of geographical remoteness and personal circumstance. Perhaps for the first time, such students can be provided with access to a high quality educational experience.

Za posledních 10 až 15 let vznikla v Evropě silná poptávka po výukových on-line materiálech pro finanční vzdělávání. Protože se jedná o vzdělávací oblast, která odráží reálné ekonomické prostředí, v němž žije každý člověk a lze si jej snadno virtuálně namodelovat, je e-learningová forma výuky v tomto případě velmi vhodná a efektivní.

 

Představme si dva české e-learningové projekty, které se snaží danou problematiku řešit relativně komplexně a které jsou dostupné zdarma pro kohokoli s připojením na internet.

 

Finanční vzdělávání

Kiipulan ammattiopisto on toisen asteen ammatillinen erityisoppilaitos, jossa järjestetään ammatillista peruskoulutusta ja aikuisten lisäkoulutusta. Luokassa tapahtuvan opetuksen tukena tieto- ja viestintätekniikka ja sosiaalinen media ovat olleet jo pidempään Kiipulan ammattiopistolla. Nuorten aikuisten osaamisohjelman myötä lisättiin tvt:n ja somen käyttöä myös työssäoppimisjaksojen aikana ja etätehtävien tekemisessä.
In the previous parts to Online Learning and Higher Education, a series of six short articles, we pondered the potential impact of digital technologies on education, the questions raised for those contemplating the design of an eLearning course and how traditional approaches and methodologies can inform the application of emerging technologies. This week, we look at traditional forms of delivery and how we are still bound to established modes.

Regular teacher training is not always enough to get us all on board in applying digital tools in teaching and training. Peer-teacher model can do the trick applied as such or as a way of complementing regular staff training. Peer-teacher model introduced by Digi4Adults project (Erasmus+ KA2 2015-2017) encourages teachers to share their everyday findings and experiences on applying digital tools in their teaching.

The Principles of Adult Learning. We’ve all heard of them … but what are they, really? They’re a generally agreed upon set of principles and best practices that we apply to building training for adult learners. So let’s take a closer look at these principles and some practical tips for applying them to your next e-learning course.

Experience

Adults have a rich history with many past experiences they can draw upon, which helps them in their learning endeavors.

How to apply this principle to e-learning?

As part of a series of short articles on 'Online Learning and Higher Education' we considered the possibility that we might have got at least some of our implementation strategy for eLearning wrong and, more worryingly, are continuing to make the same mistakes. This week, we look at the beginnings of the “unbundling” of education.

Education and the mechanics of how it is delivered are strange and occasionally uneasy bedfellows. Additionally, the introduction of new technologies is challenging those of us who work in education to re-examine our assumptions about how we engage with our students, present our materials and deliver our courses.
