Active Learning in the Online Classroom: Examples and Ideas

eLearning Acupuncture

Someone recently told me that they heard of an approach where all the boring content delivery lecture material is put online so that more active learning can take place in the classroom. Good blended classrooms have a significant amount of active learning. The active learning philosophies need not only occur in the classroom however. Do you have something to add?

Active and Passive Learning in Organizations

The Peformance Improvement

Another approach is to make the learner an active creator of knowledge and skills. In this role, employees (as individuals, teams, or the organization as a whole) receive feedback about what they are doing and how they are doing it and, through individual and collective reflection, learn how to make themselves, their teams, and the enterprise more effective.

It is also important that learning is made to be active and engaging. All of these aspects of learning are active. It is not hard to see how such an artificial transition from active to passive can stifle creativity and demotivate learners. One argument is that simply having access to personalised technologies creates conducive conditions in which active learning can occur.

Evolving role of Trainers in Corporate Learning


The trainer plays a pivotal here – a role which is nevertheless evolving with the changing needs of the corporate learners.

The role of instructional designer in social/informal learning

Spark Your Interest

One of the quandaries that instructional designers have been struggling with, is their role (if any) in informal or social learning. An instructional designer’s role is to design instruction. This is a much more facilitative role and some would argue that it’s counter-intutitive to have a designer involved. Is this the role of an instructional designer?

Fundamental Design of Learning Activities

Aaron Silvers

Design Thinking offers a set of tools to make sense of “wicked problems” and mysteries, and in this post I attempt to narrate my ideational journey in making sense of learning by digital means, the concept that I call learning experiences, and a notional (but far from complete) model for learning activities designed for individuals to experience.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

There’s essentially no role for bullet points or prose and simplistic quizzes, very little role for tarted up quizzes, and lots of role for media on the content side and  branching scenarios and model-driven interactions on the interaction side. I’ve been on quite the roll of late, calling out some bad practices and calling for learning science. And it occurs to me that there could be some pushback.  So let me be clear, I strongly suggest that the types of learning that are needed are not info dump and knowledge test,  by and large.

Role of Video Conferencing in Education


The findings from this survey confirm what many of us would probably guess about the use of live-streaming video in education: it plays a critical role, and that role is growing in importance.

It is a framework that helps move from an awareness of knowledge to activation of its use in the context of getting work done.

Most of all, PKM is a framework to actually do knowledge work.

Online Learning Activities to build Learning Communities


Online learning is seldom complete without reinforceming activities which provide evidence that learning did take place. When designing any online activity with social media as an engagement strategy, the instructor must bear in mind Bloom’s Taxonomy (Sylvia, 2014). In higher education and the corporate training environment, the focus is more on application and synthesis, as opposed to recalling activities.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

Facebook plays a similar integrative role for participative technologies. Facebook allowed anyone to start sharing images, ideas, and form social networks and to do so in a single tool with similar functionality across different activities. Keeping in mind that a single narrative has shortcomings, I’ll argue that activation of latent capacity is the driving element of every successful technology of the past 15 years. Twitter/Facebook, activate multiple latent capacities: sharing, social connections, and images. We aren’t connecting. Latent Capacity.

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

Microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. Thus, micro-learning can play a crucial role in both formally designed performance support as well as in informal learning, with the latter focusing on user-generated content. Some of the information and knowledge bytes we encounter are designed for us with specific objectives in mind – formal learning ; some of it we pull based on our need at the moment – informal learning ; and some of the learning occurs as a by-product of some other activity – incidental learning.

4 Ways to Apply the Situated Learning Theory

Real learning happens only when it is contextual – meaning, when students can directly apply it in authentic activities, contexts and cultures.

Some of the ways to apply this theory are: Group Activities.

The Role of the "New" Training Professional


In many organizations the role of the training professional has transformed; no longer focused on delivering training, today’s L&D professional is now a facilitator of learning who also serves as an information manager, a content curator, and a builder of learning communities. We also encounter employees who readily and actively participate in learning as part of collaborative efforts with team members. While the need to do that is not going away the role of trainers has expanded and shifted to meet the needs of today’s workplace. and/or perform better. Content Curator.
