Well, I completed my first assignment for my EDIT class this afternoon. I read over a 35 pages study completed by the Hanover group on the proper method to conduct an online course. It was pretty interesting and a lot of it seemed to be common sense especially if you practice Best Practices in your regular classroom. The hardest part was creating the 2 multiple choice or true/false questions over the material. One of which had to be higher order. I'm used to creating higher order questions with discussion questions or with creative outcomes. Oh well, I hope I did it correctly.
I had to choose a chapter from our textbook to conduct an online lesson to our group. I chose my chapter based solely on when the presentation date would occur. I wanted to present immediately following our school's Spring break so that I would have several examples (from other students) and a week to prepare. The chapter did seem interesting so I hope it works out.
Have a great week everybody!
