In this part of the course we will introduce a broad learning design concept through the design of learning activities using a technology-enabled teaching and learning tool, LAMS, the Learning Activity Management System. This week we will introduce the concept by looking at the IMS Learning Design specification, in the context of where it came from, and next week we look at various Learning Design tools. We will also look at various social software tools and different pedagogical approaches used to support communication, nurturing creativity and innovation, and manage collaborative and personalised learning to enhance learning experiences and outcomes.
What to do:
- Work through the activities in Learning Design Using LAMS
- Follow the Editing in LAMS - instructions to help you set up your own version of the previous LAMS activities so that you can find out how LAMS works from a 'designers' perspective.
