BOOK ON LEARNING DESIGN ON SALE
"Learning Design: A Handbook on Modelling and Delivering Networked Education and Training" edited by Rob Koper and Colin Tattersall
For more details see the site of the publishers, Springer, at
Please go there and if you have the book, or are ordering it, you can enrol by going to the "Why are you interested in LD?" forum and posting your response in the format I have done.
There is no fee for this course, but if you like it, you may wish to donate $50 to moodle.org. Mention in the donation box that you are investing in future cooperation/compliance of Moodle and IMS-LD. Of course, donors will receive a supporters button in the mail from Irene.
Very similar to what I did with my Flexible Learning Leaders Program and the Dip of e-learning out of UTS. I would be interested in joining you in this.
- set a weekly reading assignment
- assign each person to make at least one forum comment per week, on implications for Moodle
I also thought we might make a group document (using Wiki) to summarize each chapter. What do you think?
I woull be interested in joining this discussion. Of course, I have to get the book first. That can take several weeks. I am going to order it this week. I am sure I will have it by mid March.
Amazon still lists the book as "This item has not yet been released", neither does Barnes & Noble have it in stock.
I suspect that getting it from Europe would take a while.
Thank you for your book recommendations Don. I will order them all.
But, I you want to start, I will follow the discussion .
Hi Don and the rest,
I have already the book and I would like to share thoughts with all of you as soon as you have it. I'll check this forum often to follow the discussion
