Coursera platform offers, in cooperation with the University of London, a free online course: Get Interactive: Practical Teaching with Technology. This course is designed to help you create dynamic, interactive online courses through the use of multimedia tools, student collaboration opportunities, and formative assessment and feedback.
About The Get Interactive: Practical Teaching with Technology Course
Each week we will focus on a particular topic:
- Using multimedia for teaching and learning
- Encouraging student collaboration
- Formative assessment and feedback
You will have a range of materials to read, videos to watch, topics to research, activities to perform, discussions to participate in, and an assessment to complete.
In addition, you will have a random assignment of fellow participants’ assessments to mark in order to receive your own mark.
While most of the videos and activities are mandatory, we have included a number of “Take it Further” activities and longer versions of videos that are voluntary.
At first glance, It may seem like a lot, but you will quickly find that many activities will take just minutes to perform. The emphasis in this MOOC is on gaining a wide range of experience in order to decide for yourself which tools and techniques to explore in more depth.
