Presentation at Open Polytechnic 2013 Learning Conference : Engaging Learners.
The Learning Centre offers several programmes to first-time students aimed at enhancing their engagement and success. A new support initiative is an online orientation workshop which introduces students to the online learning environment and helps them become familiar with the polytechnic's support services. The workshop has been developed in Moodle and has been tested with a group of students. This presentation will look at the workshop design process and consider e-learning design principles, pedagogical frameworks, and key elements for student success. The workshop’s main features will be presented, along with student feedback on the trial version and a reflection on the challenges faced during the design and development process.
