Hello fellow bloggers and classmates,
Below are the three resources I located for Week 1 Assignment. I hope the resources I selected are different than what you chose for the assignment that way we can have more resources, which we can hopefully utilize in the future. I can’t wait to interact with you. Please enjoy the resources below.
Shift eLearning is a blog aimed to assist instructional designers by providing them a place to access tips and tricks of the trade. Instructional designers can utilize the Shift eLearning blog or subscribe to get a newsletter with similar information. However, the blog and newsletter are only a small part of the website. The rest of the site is dedicated to an eLearning platform. This platform allows the user to create content for an online course with a user-friendly interface.
Model eLearning is a blog where the design team from Spring Arbor University can share their insights about topics related to instructional design. Some of these topics reference learning trends, tips, and personal experience. Many of the posts, I noticed were about eLearning. This makes sense because of the digital age we are in. Therefore, it is important to have relevant input about eLearning.
Trends and issues is a blog dedicated to identifying the current trends and issues occurring in the Instructional technology and educational technology field. Their blog posts are labeled as episodes and consist of a short post that summarizes the podcast the blogger includes at the end. The authors of the post, Dr. Abbie Brown and Dr. Tim Green also include their own perspectives on these trends and issues, as wells as reading resources that the readers may find useful and relevant to the topic they are discussing.
For those of you who have not heard of these websites, maybe you can utilize them in your journey to become an instructional designer or assist those who are already instructional designers.
