7-25-17 Guide to Everything eLearning Update

Hi All –

So, as we are moving along at breakneck pace, and as I’ve been emailing back and forth with many of you, I’d like to provide some reminders to keep everyone on track.  Remember that all coursework is due on Friday, 8/4/17.

1)      Review the rubric for the ePortfolio.  This is due on Friday, 8/4/17.  It does not just entail your work in this course – it also requires that you curate your work from other places, etc., so don’t wait until the last couple days to look at those requirementsJ  And, though I probably sound like a broken record, use the rubric.  I will be grading with it.  In my experience in higher ed, it is exceedingly rare that you receive a rubric and expectations for each project/assignment.  Please use them as the tool they are intended to be – a recipe for your success!   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lwpuBcseSvakVLLVNsZnoyQ0E/view?usp=sharing

2)      Be sure to also finish up your eLearning glossary.  This is also due on Friday, 8/4/17.  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lwpuBcseSvaGxDb1pScC01a00/view?usp=sharing

3)      For PhD students – don’t forget you have an extra PhD assignment here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lwpuBcseSvbWlSN3dSNkRfNE0/view?usp=sharing

NOTE:  All work is due in by FRIDAY 8/4/17.  HOWEVER, I am going to extend the deadline for the ePortfolio and the PhD reflection ONLY to 11:59 PM on Saturday, 8/5/17. 

It seems like many of you primarily work on the course on the weekends (which is fine, this is real life,) so if you can get in the eLearning glossary (remember do not cut/paste – you must rewrite,) and the final week’s assignment (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lwpuBcseSvQ3BVS0NIU0x0b2c/view?usp=sharing,) in on Friday, that should give you Saturday to finish up the ePortfolio and the PhD assignment and get everything in so that I can madly grade ePortfolios on Sunday.

There have been a couple of schedule challenges here and there, and, while I will not be changing course policies or expectations, I will provide a one-time only opportunity for remediation.  I recently wrote this article on WCET’s blog:  In Defense of the LMS:  https://wcetfrontiers.org/2017/07/20/in-defense-of-the-lms/.  You can gain up to 300 points if you provide me a 800 word analysis of the article noting what you agree with, disagree with, etc.

If your analysis contains grammatical errors I will not review itJ  Edit it yourself, and have someone else edit it if you need to.  Read it out loud to yourself if you have any doubts (better yet, write it and have someone else read it out loud to you.)  Please submit via email by 11:59 PM this coming Sunday, July 30.

Alright – there it is!  Please contact me by text, email, Google hangout whatever to get a hold of me:)
