I was able to participate in the learning experience design for the XR MOOC Specialization created by the University of Michigan and launched on Coursera. Below, I’ve demonstrated the artifacts and design processes that I worked on in the specialization, and their relations to the LXD core competencies.
COURSE VIDEO REVIEW
I reviewed the instructional videos for two of the courses in the specialization. I demonstrated an ability to Attend to Design Principles, Practices, and Guidelines by maintaining a perspective on digital accessibility and clarity, suggesting changes that would improve the accessibility of the learning content. I also demonstrated Creating Documentation and Resources by producing a comprehensive spreadsheet/document of video reviews, accessibility and clarity notes, and In Video Quiz Question placement (see below).
IN VIDEO QUIZZES
I created In-Video Quiz Questions that served to give learners “breaks” in longer video learning segments, apply formative review principles, and allowed learners time to reflect on the concepts embedded in each video, which demonstrates a Knowledge of Instructional Design and Technology Affordances. I further demonstrated Creating Documentation and Resources by producing a comprehensive spreadsheet/document of these IVQ’s.
WRITING AND EDITING
I edited the initial readings for all three courses. Professor Michael Nebeling (the instructor for the series) was very trusting and helpful in letting me re-write as needed to ensure accessibility and clarity across the three courses. I really enjoyed working with him! In this aspect of the course design, I demonstrated an ability to Foster Professional Relationships, helped instructional faculty to create the course by Applying a Knowledge of Instructional Design and Technology, and attended to accessibility best practice in the course readings by demonstrating a knowledge of Design Principles, Practices, and Guidelines.
