Learning Activites in a

These types of activites can be conducted in a Learning Management System by:

Authenticity in Online Learning
“[Students ] need to find their way past self-doubt, awkwardness, and the fear of failure to a place where they could ask a question in class, make a contribution in a group and speak coherently in front of peers.” (Weimer, 2002)
What does it all mean?
Development of content or projects that relate to real life experiences in the field of study or student interests, anchored Constructivist activities relating to the topic of the course.
Difficulties in creating an authentic online experience:
Creating diverse and real problems where students have the
ability to explore with a real outcome at the end.
Creating peer groups in class that have common interests to one another . Students know who in the class has similar interests and can assist in working together to build and define each others topics.
Teachers creating curriculum and lesson plans.
Literature students producing book reviews based on an official format or style.
Creating project proposals with appropriate information and models to support the student's perspective.
These types of activites can be conducted in a Learning Management System by:
Developing a class Wiki where students have the opportunity to develop a unified project together about a common interest.

Students have the ability to access and integrate data and information from the internet linking their experiences to relevant course content. Technology makes it easier to create and facilitate different learning activities.

Provides the opportunity to reflect.
Can be integrated and applied across different subject areas and lead beyond domain-specific outcomes.
Create polished products valuable in their own right rather than as preparation for something else.
Allow competing solutions and diverse outcomes.
