Search for specific functions below to identify which technology(ies) will best meet your needs in enhancing student learning. We appreciate any technology suggestions and/or site recommendations.

Potential Course Design Model(s):

Implementation Considerations for Success:

Pre-selection:

  • What are the benefits to student learning?
  • What degree of technical expertise is needed by the students to successfully meet task requirements?
    • Can you support this need?
  • How will you meaningfully integrate the technology into the course?
    • How will using this technology enhance project/assignment/lesson/etc.?
  • What are the technological options from which the students can select?
  • How will these activities be effectively and fairly assessed?

Post-selection:

  • Start simply with some basic pertinent activities to develop confidence
    • Include ‘help’ sites/information links on ASULearn
  • Provide examples:
    • Your own
    • Previous students (with their permission)
  • Establish:
    • Clearly with whom the information will be shared
    • E.g. just instructor, team members, whole class, general public
    • A code of appropriate practice (e.g. password protection, coded identification, information permitted, etc.)
    • Identify attribution/referencing strategies
      • Context & rubrics/checklists/rating scales for all tasks to ensure greater quality, clarity & purpose of activities
