TEXPO 2017 Follow-up: Modular Learning from Macro to Micro

Thank you for attending Modular Learning from Macro to Micro. The session recording is now posted and slides are posted to the conference website.  Below you’ll find information related to modular learning.

Technical difficulties prevented us from viewing some of the examples, so here’s a link to Lars Sorenson’s website showing a selection of examples he created for faculty in his capacity of Academic Instructional Technologist in the Instructional Design Group for D’Amore-McKim School of Business.

Our Social Microlearning article “Learning in Bursts: Microlearning with Social Media” can be found on the Educause website along with the infographic provided to complement that article. We are looking to continue our research into the effectiveness of social microlearning in the fall. If you are interested in participating in the Microlearning research, please complete this one question form.

You can follow along with the social media stream of John Wihbey’s classes and Journalism students at Northeastern by viewing #digiNU on Twitter.

Mary Lynn Fahey created her simulation-based learning activities in Storyline, which is currently available to faculty and staff with a Northeastern-owned computer. You can find out more about Storyline at the ATS website, but the best way to get started is to email ats@northeastern.edu to make an appointment to talk through potential projects.

Lars also mentioned PlayPosit which is an interactive video tool that allows you to create an interactive video activity by embedding questions and discussions into videos created through Tegrity or almost any video production process. Blackboard integration is supported for easy sign-on and placement into Blackboard courses. Find out more about PlayPosit here or sign up for a hands-on session focusing on PlayPosit, tomorrow May 4th 12:30 – 2:00 during our May the Fourth Training Day event. Registration is required so that we can provide you with event login information.

ATS also has some upcoming workshops on related technologies

  • Creating Simulations and Scenarios-based Learning in Storyline: 4/28
  • Tools for Creating Online Content and Interactions 5/17
  • Social Media Tools for Teaching and Learning: 5/1, 6/12, 8/16

Please visit our website to see other available courses! We would also be happy to schedule a one-on-one session for any tools we support at your convenience.

Finally, please provide feedback on our TEXPO 2017 Feedback Survey to help us plan for next year or to provide ideas about what you’d like to see or present. Recordings of sessions and any supplementary materials for sessions you may not have been able to attend are now posted on our TEXPO 2017 homepage as well.
