The course is designed to prepare educators, lecturers and subject professionals to develop, manage, implement, support and moderate online learning and enable them to become active members of an online community for online tutors.
The goal of the course is to provide students with knowledge of and practical experience in logging into and using a virtual classroom, building online learning environments at a basic level, supporting and guiding online students in their learning processes, and describing, discussing and selecting pedagogical approaches.
Upon completion of the course, students are expected to have gained or improved their skills in: producing online learning material; working with peers online and in face-to-face situations; analysing problems, negotiating meanings and finding solutions; participating in professional online networks; reflecting on learning processes; and improving learning skills. They also should have developed or strengthened their attitudes towards E-learning as a recognized and valid supplement/alternative to on-campus studies as well as the importance of situated learning.
Students who complete the course will receive10 ECTS at the Master's level. This corresponds to an estimated total workload of 300 study hours, with approximately 10% or more of this time spent online.
The course is given through GVU, while Stord Haugesund University College is academically responsible.
