Ask, Bodil; Haugen, Harald
This paper describes the online course, Pedagogy in Open Learning, offered by NITOL (Norwaynet with Information Technology for Open Learning). Target groups are teachers, developers, and providers of ODL (Open and Distance Learning). The main goal is to prepare a basis for development and applications of ODL material that uses ICT (Information and Communication Technology) as a medium to supplement and/or offer an alternative to traditional ways of learning. Topics covered in the course include: (1) introduction to ODL and to the technical basis for ICT-based ODL; (2) theories of learning (e.g., cognitivism, constructivism, situated learning) related to ODL; (3) structures of learning material, hyperstructures, different modes and media; (4) creation of a World Wide Web-based learning environment; (5) system dynamics and simulations as learning tools; and (6) design and development of learning environments, net-based support, discussions, etc. The paper also covers technical and organizational aspects, pedagogical and methodological approaches, and visions.
