Full course description
This course introduces participants to instructional design principles for teaching with mobile technology. Mobile technology is a growing and powerful trend; people now spend more time on mobile apps than they do on the Web. What opportunities does this powerful trend present to those who design online learning? How can we leverage mobile technology in ways that make sense for our teaching methods and student learning?
To answer these questions, participants will explore principles for designing mobile learning; pedagogies for teaching with mobile technology; and tools for creating mobile instruction. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend webinars facilitated by mobile learning experts Dr. Jackie Gerstein, Dr. David Metcalf, and Michelle Pacansky-Brock. By the end of the course, participants should be able to determine how to leverage and integrate mobile technology in their own online courses.
