Responding to both the trend towards increasing online enrollments as the demand for face-to-face education declines, and to the immediate surge in remote learning owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, this book provides vital guidance to higher education institutions on how to develop faculty capacity to teach online and to leverage the affordances of an ever-increasing array of new and emerging learning technologies. This book provides higher education leaders with the context they need to position their institutions in the changing online environment, and with guidance to build support in a period of transition. It is intended for campus leaders and administrators who work with campus teams charged with identifying learning technologies to meet an agreed upon program- or institution-level educational needs; for those coordinating across campus to build consensus on implementing online strategies; and for instructional designers, faculty developers and assessment directors who assist departments and faculty effectively integrate learning technologies into their courses and programs. It will also appeal to faculty who take an active interest in improving online teaching. The contributors to this volume describe the potential of artificial intelligence algorithms, such as those that fuel learning analytics software that mines LMS data to enable faculty to quickly and efficiently assess individual students’ progress in real time, prompting either individual attention or the need to more generally clarify concepts for the class as whole. They describe and provide access to a hybrid professional development MOOC and an associated WIKI that curate information about a wide range of learning software solutions currently available; and present case studies that offer guidance on building the buy-in and consensus needed to successfully integrate learning technologies into course, program- and institution-level contexts. In sum, this book provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the technological capabilities available to them and identifies collaborative processes related to engaging and building institutional support for the changes needed to provide the rapidly growing demand for effective and evidence-based online learning.

In Going Online, one of our most respected online learning leaders offers insights into virtual education--what it is, how it works, where it came from, and where it may be headed. Robert Ubell reaches back to the days when distance learning was practiced by mail in correspondence schools and then leads us on a tour behind the screen, touching on a wide array of topics along the way, including what it takes to teach online and the virtual student experience. You'll learn about: How to build a sustainable online program How to create an active learning online course Why so many faculty resist teaching online How virtual teamwork enhances digital instruction How to manage online course ownership How learning analytics improves online instruction Ubell says that it is not technology alone, but rather unconventional pedagogies, supported by technological innovations, that truly activate today's classrooms. He argues that innovations introduced online--principally peer-to-peer and collaborative learning--offer significantly increased creative learning options across all age groups and educational sectors. This impressive collection, drawn from Ubell's decades of experience as a digital education pioneer, presents a powerful case for embracing online learning for its transformational potential.

Meet Learning Needs With New Tools and New Thinking Learning is no longer an activity or luxury that only occurs at specific stages in your life or career. With the digital revolution, learning has become immediate, real-time, and relevant whether you’re young, old, in the workforce, in school, or at home. As a learning and development professional, you’ve likely confronted the digital learning revolution armed with instructional design models from the pre-digital world. But today’s digital universe has a new model to address its wealth of new technologies and a new philosophy of learning experience design: learning cluster design. Designing for Modern Learning: Beyond ADDIE and SAM offers you and your learners a new way to learn. It describes the fundamental shift that has occurred in the nature of L&D’s role as a result of the digital revolution and introduces a new five-step model: the Owens-Kadakia Learning Cluster Design Model (OK-LCD Model), a new five-step model for training design that meets the needs of modern learning. The model’s five steps or actions are an easy-to-follow mnemonic, CLUSTER: • Change on-the-job behavior • Learn learner-to-learner differences • Upgrade existing assets • Surround learning with meaningful assets • Track transformation of Everyone’s Results. In each chapter, the authors share stories of business leaders, L&D professionals, and learners who have successfully adopted the OK-LCD Model, detailing how they altered organizational mindsets to meet the needs of modern learners and their organizations. Included are how-to features, tools, tips, and real-life “in practice” sections. This is an exciting time to be in L&D. It’s time to join the revolution.

"The technology that allows the communication of ideas and information through an electronic medium (such as a computer or a television) has transformed when, where and how we learn. This book shows that tele-learning - making connections between people and resources by sending and receiving signals through carriers such as wire, cables and air, for learning-related purposes - is a multi-faceted phenomenon, using and affecting many different types of people, and offering us a special opportunity to develop new pedagogies and improve old ways of learning." "Tele-learning in a Digital World takes a thematic approach: It examines the many scenarios where tele-learning occurs, such as distance education, online situations (the Internet and the World Wide Web), professional development via application sharing, and more, than discusses those involved in tele-learning - from parents and teachers to professionals in education and telecommunications - and their major roles. It then reviews current pedagogical practice and identifies the new opportunities for improved learning brought by 'tele-technology'."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Equity and Quality in Digital Learning identifies and presents specific strategies and practices for using digital tools to reduce inequities in educational opportunities and improve student outcomes. Based on the authors' ten-year research-practice partnership with both the Dallas and Milwaukee public school districts, the book highlights the factors that can support or impede the effective implementation of digital learning in K-12 schools at all levels: district, school, classroom, and student. Digital initiatives can boost higher levels of learning, the authors advocate, but require planning, monitoring and assessment, and revamping and refinement. As public schools in the United States continue to make major investments in digital learning, the variability in how it's rolled out, accessed, and supported, both during and outside of the regular school day, threatens to exacerbate rather than reduce inequities in learning opportunities, the authors argue. It is critical to ensure that the chosen digital tools are effectively leveraged to enhance learning and reduce achievement gaps, especially for those students historically underserved in K-12 schools. The authors offer concrete ways to use evidence from the book to increase the effectiveness of digital learning. Equity and Quality in Digital Learning contributes critical insights and tools needed for educators and policy makers to deliver on the promise of digital learning in American schools.

Technology has revolutionized corporate learning and leadership development. The number of organizations that use learning management systems is higher than ever before, and thanks to massive open online courses (MOOCs), small private online courses (SPOCS), microlearning, nanolearning, and other new media learning platforms, digital learning and training is at an all-time high. Many learning and leadership development professionals, however, still consider expensive, face-to-face, instructor-led training preferable to digital learning. This paper will explore six strategies from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCLʼ) that talent leaders can leverage to make digital learning initiatives more effective within their organization. When properly designed, delivered, and evaluated, digital learning initiatives can change a company's corporate culture, improve employee engagement, and increase retention. On the flip side, if done poorly, digital learning initiatives can end up as meaningless corporate activities. The six strategies explored in this paper are addressed under the following headings: (1) Less is More; (2) Support from the Top; (3) Learner-Centered Design; (4) Leaders as Teachers; (5) Learning Partnerships; and (6) What Gets Measured Gets Done.
