Take Ten! Involving the Learner
Who Is Learning Online
Three Tips for Interactive
Choose and Use:
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to make YOUR online courses as interactive as THIS one.
Pay attention to all the ways you become an active learner rather than a passive reader. Then use some of these strategies in your own computer-based instruction. Let the learning begin!
Give learners a graphic organizer.
Take a moment to click on the following link and download the graphic organizer (also called a note-taking worksheet):
Think and Write (what you already know): On the graphic organizer, quickly jot down two facts you already know about interactive e-learning.
Think and Write (what you want to learn): Now write a short sentence describing what you want to learn from this micro-course.
Consider providing your learners with a graphic organizer similar to the one you are using. If you aren't able to create a link to a note-taking worksheet, instruct your learners to use a blank piece of paper as a note-taking worksheet.
