For the teams of companies and institutions responsible for training, to start the development of remote asynchronous learning materials.
Professionals have no doubt that training will increasingly be digital in the future.
The execution of this future, however, is less clear. Digital materials are perceived differently by participants, so their preferred format differs from traditional learning practices. Therefore, the creation of e-materials requires processes and skills that traditional learning does not provide.
How to carry out asynchronous learning in practice?
The good news is that there is a solution to this challenge! But more nuanced questions need to be answered on the way to it. How do audiences learn synchronously and asynchronously? What are the main differences between synchronous and asynchronous learning materials? How to create asynchronous learning courses? What are the formats for delivering asynchronous learning material? How to combine different asynchronous learning formats? How to assess knowledge of the audience asynchronously? How to get feedback? What are the challenges of producing asynchronous learning materials?
We will find answers to these and other questions in the series of practical workshops of Kārlis Apkalns "e-Material Development".
- The group is planned for 4-5 pairs of participants (topic expert + methodologist);
- the course requires participants to have a high level of digital skills;
- 20% of the time in the course is devoted to theory and 80% to practical tasks related to the planning and development of e-learning content;
- independent work is scheduled for the participants between classes each time.
Course benefits:Participants are prepared for the development of asynchronous learning materials with:
- understanding of the possibilities of developing asynchronous learning materials;
- production process suitable for practical implementation (work forms);
- detailed plans of future e-courses;
- the first learning materials (prototypes) of the course prepared.
