The most important principle for designing lively eLearning is to see eLearning design not as information design but as designing an experience.

Purpose

Life has taken me into several directions that have helped me experience and acquire skills from several disciplines.  This has enabled me to visualize and manage projects from a more holistic perspective and solve complex problems using knowledge from several fields.  The objective of this website is to share what I have learned and give you ideas on how to implement similar strategies in your learning projects.  Hopefully it can be also a place for networking for like minded individuals to collaborate and create the next generation of online learning.

HOPEFULLY THIS AREA WILL REMAIN UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOREVER.

How Video Optimization May Affect Onilne Course Equivalency?

Credit Hours In an academic setting where degrees are granted based on the time spent studying a certain field, course design is based on credit hours.  A credit hour is the basic unit of course weight or rigor.  For example, a common course format is the three credit hour course.  This means that students need to invest each week at least three hours receiving direct instruction from the course instructor, and double of that (six hours), performing course related activities such as reading, studying, or doing homework, in order to fulfill that requirement.  This of course could be considered the instructional designer and/or faculty's best wishes, because in reality that time investment will vary.  Also view leads to the question... What happens with student differentiation, since not everybody learns at [...]

Website Speed Optimization

Implement Website Speed Optimization by Using CloudFlare's CDN. What is a CDN? A CDN is a network of servers located around the world that can deliver your website's content to your visitors more quickly. Cloudflare's CDN is one of the largest and most reliable CDNs available, and can significantly improve the speed at which your website's content is delivered to your visitors. Let's get started with website speed optimization! We will enable Cloudflare's CDN. By enabling Cloudflare's CDN, you can offload the delivery of static assets such as images, JavaScript, and CSS files to Cloudflare's global network of servers. This can reduce the load on your own server and improve the speed at which your website's content is delivered to your visitors. We will also enable auto-minification. Cloudflare can automatically [...]

TXDLA 2023

Video coming soon... Rewriting Stories: Improving a Course's Narrative by Transcript Editing When producing online content, it is difficult to script a lecture completely.  It may turn out to sound dull, or instructors simply do not have the time or energy to devote to this purpose.  Many of them even say that reading from a script takes away a lot from their delivery and that they don't sound as good as if they were just talking. However, when they just talk, they may not keep their thoughts in the right order, or they might go in circles sometimes. To solve this problem what we do is that after the recordings have taken place, we use a software called "Descript" to analyze the content of the lecture and edit its flow [...]

Elastic Course Design Methodology @ TxDLA 2018

Please join us on March 23 @ 9:00 AM CDT in Dallas TX.  We will be presenting in room A3 about the methodology that we are using when transitioning traditional courses into online courses.  Attend our session, learn, participate and share your valuable feedback. Our intention with developing the Elastic Course Design Methodology is to streamline the course design process by creating a soft-transition workflow that benefits both the instructional designers (IDs) and the subject matter experts (SMEs), where teaching face-to-face (F2F), and designing a course for online delivery at the same time is possible.  The resulting course is expected to be equivalent to it's counterpart and also "elastic", meaning that it can be easily adapted to be taught in a 5, 10, or 15 week modality, as well its [...]
