E-ffective Writing for E-Learning Environments
Campbell, Katy
Information Science Publishing
The author integrates research and practice in user-centered design and learning design for instructors in post-secondary institutions and learning organizations who are developing e-learning resources. The book is intended as a development guide for experts in areas other than instructional or educational technology rather than as a learning design textbook. The organization of the book reflects the development process for a resource, course, or program, from planning and development through formative evaluation, and identifies trends and issues that faculty or developers might encounter along the way. The account of the process of one faculty member's course development journey illustrates suggested design guidelines. The accompanying practice guide provides additional information, examples, learning activities, and tools to supplement the text. Ten chapters include: (1) Five Factors for Planning; (2) User-Centered Design (Part 1--Cultural Diversity); (3) User-Centered Design (Part 2--Age, Gender and Accessibility); (4) Selecting and Evaluating Learning Objects (Ellen Whybrow); (5) From Text to e-Text--Message Design; (6) From Text to e-Text--Resisting Print; (7) Structuring the e-Learning Environment; (8) The Active e-Reader; (9) Usability Testing; and (10) e-Learning Trends--The Mobile Environment. A preface, introduction, glossary, list of references, handbook, and index are included.
