Adventures in Learning Design, Technology & Innovation (#LDTIMOLO)

Note that this is the content from my MOLO that will run in Fall 2014. Tweet me if you want to be added to the invite list for fall. 



In this massive online learning opportunity (MOLO), we will explore concepts related to learning design, technology and innovation. In the format of a fun 5-week adventure, we will strive to develop a practical and experiential understanding of pedagogy, learning theory, learning design with technology, and innovation.

For much more about this MOLO, see #LDTIMOLO Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) (Links to an external site.).


Interacting in this MOLO

With our massive online learning opportunity (MOLO), we have the capacity to use social networking. If you choose to use social networking tools to share your work, please use our hashtag #LDTIMOLO. 

I have added an FAQs and Help Forum, where I provide strategies for us to get or give help. Here are some places we might find each other:

Week 2 Adventure 2: Practice Guilds and Quests
  1. Join a Guild as soon as possible. Participation numbers in our MOLO are manageable. We can use Google Docs to create guilds and then I'll set up your Canvas groups so that you have Canvas group tools if your guild wants to use them. Here are the Google Documents for joining a group. I will be tracking this and make adjustments as needed. 
  • #LDTIMOLO Guilds Set 1 (Links to an external site.) - start here, if the document fills or it's got too many to edit, move to the next. I don't think this will be a problem, but better to be prepared.
  • #LDTIMOLO Guilds Set 2 (Links to an external site.)
  • #LDTIMOLO Guilds Set 3 (Links to an external site.)
  • Interact with your facilitator and your colleagues via #LDTIMOLO Hangout For Week 2 (September 16, 5:00 7:00pm MT) for a look back at Adventure 1, and preview and support for Adventure 2.
