banner1
Title:E-learning Project
Long Title:E-learning Project
Module Code:EDUC9030
 
Credits: 10
NFQ Level:Expert
Field of Study: Education Studies
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2016/17 ( September 2016 )
Module Delivered in 1 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: ROSE MC GRATH
Module Author: SHANE CRONIN
Module Description: The aim of this module is to develop the student’s capability for self-directed learning and critical reflection with regard to the research, design, development, and implementation of pedagogically effective e-learning and technology-enhanced learning solutions which address real client and learner needs. The module builds on both pedagogical and technical skills, knowledge and competence gained in previous modules of the programme and culminates in the development of an original e-learning solution.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Apply a range of learning and design frameworks to the process of e-learning design and development
LO2 Manage work and outputs in a professional manner with respect to established project management and software/multimedia development principles and practices
LO3 Critically analyse user requirements based on iterative user-centred design and related methods
LO4 Critically reflect on the broader contexts of his/her work with respect, in particular, to current trends in e-learning as practice and discipline
LO5 Develop a pedagogically effective e-learning solution to address specific real world learning and learner requirements
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
