Creation and implementation of a joint e-learning course
Start date: November 1, 2020
End date: May 31, 2021
This output will result in the designing and development of an e-learning course for the use of the LMS by students with different types of disabilities. This course will be placed on several platforms such as E-twinning and School Getaway and will be free and accessible for all.
The participants in training activity C2 will develop the course syllabus.
The innovative solution will be the combination of different types of e-learning components: e-learning content, e-mentoring, collaborative learning and virtual classroom, which will also be adapted for students with disabilities. These components will be integrated in different level of education, especially in the part of inclusive education and here lie the transferability possibilities and broadening of the outreach this course will have.
IO4/A1: Analysis (needs analysis, target audience analysis, task and topic analysis) to determine the gap in knowledge and skills and to define that e-learning is the best solution for training delivery.
IO4/A2: Design (learning objectives, sequencing, instructional strategy, delivery strategy, evaluation strategy) and Development (content development, story board development, course development).
IO4/A3: Implementation and distribution (installation and distribution, managing learner’s activities).
IO4/A4: Evaluation (reactions, learning, behaviour, results).
Output type: Course / curriculum. Pilot course / module.
Vilnius University, which has the most experience in on-line sources and development of e-modules will be the leading organisation. They will develop the e-learning module for the accessible LMS use.
All partner countries (Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, University of Aveiro, and the European Training Centre Copenhagen) will participate in the process of designing the curriculum. All the organisations will place the e-module on the newly developed platform (accessible LMS).
The course development and implementation will be monitored by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Macedonia, which will give guidelines for the objectives and goals this course needs to achieve, needed for the further sustainability of the project results.
The applied methodology consists of:
— Design of an e-learning module. This will initially start from the e-needs, target groups and task/topic analysis, and afterwards the learning objectives will be defined. After the process of sequencing is finished, there will be a choice of the learning strategies and delivery formats.
— Creation of interactive content from the application of learning strategies.
— Evaluation and managing of the learning activities which will include overview of online collaborative learning, evaluation methods and learning platforms used to host online courses.
