Online Collaborative Course Design for Army E-Learning
This article appears in the first edition of this publication.
The authors propose that learner interaction and engagement in distance learning courses require more than routine interactive treatments such as dragging and dropping objects. User experience and interactivity within the Army’s offering of online courses should include levels of collaboration, along with social presence in each course. A discussion of related educational theories and design considerations is presented for consideration of Army instructional designers. In addition, the recommendations provided could enhance opportunities for collaboration and choice for learners.
