2016 #eportforum in Sydney - #greatcommunity #greatideas fantastic time.

I want to post on one workshop I went to by Joyce Seitzinger +Joyce Seitzinger , it was on LX - Learner Experience. The essentials of this user/customer/student/staff centered philosophy has underpinned the University of Canberra's entire approach to the Virtual Learning Environment procurement project, a project I've been managing since last April hence the gap in blog posts! Anyway here are the notes, with links to resources for you to access as shared by Joyce.


As an example project, Joyce worked with the Australian Institute for Training and Development to develop their digital badges.

See work by Marc HassenZahl - LX - What is it? In the context of someone using a tablet or smartphone - the tapping on glass is not for the experience of the phone it's for the emotional and learning experience through the app or web site. It's about creating an experience through a device.

For our VLE project this was also applied to the suite of educational technology and library platforms - its the experience that matters.

Google the Learner Experience Pyramid. Based on the CX pyramid by Aberdeen Research.

Some people define Learning Experience as User Experience - IT IS NOT: See http://www.uxisnotui.com

The elements of user experience: Jesse James Garrett, 2000: jjj.net

Disciplines involved: http://www.kickerstudio.com/2008/12/the-disciplines-of-user-experience/ as found in the book: http://www.designingforinteraction.com/

Human Centered Design: Don Norman. The design of everyday things. You don't want people to live in perpetual frustration.

Also related to service design thinking. Service design also looks at the experience of the staff.

Indi Young - Empathy is a noun. You focus on the needs of the user when designing - you listen to the users. How they have been using your systems already. Find any analytics you can. Create personas - these help others in the project be more empathetic with those users.

Diana Laurillard: very much about the teacher as designer. A team approach is best to help avoid increasing teacher workload.

What does 2021 hold for student #learningexperience at my university

"Handwriting Text E-Learning Loading. Concept meaning Forecasting the future event"   by  focusonmore.com  is licensed under  CC BY 2.0 This year we have a unique opportunity to capitalise on what was 2020 and all the impacts it had on learning and teaching.  Staff ICT literacy levels and confidence increased because they had to use digital tools for teaching, there was no choice. This situation was complicated, academics of all levels of ICT literacy had to adapt. Some staff had zero experience with digital tools and were using online tools for the first time, while others are always pushing boundaries and looking for alternative tools available from central support areas. As with staff, some students have very low ICT literacy, while others blaze ahead of the curve, using the tools like pros and needing much instruction. They just work it out. Shifting this cohort of students and staff to fully online was a massive undertaking and a huge shock for everyone.  Going into 2020

University of Canberra Library adds #VR Headsets to the catalogue - on the road to immersive learning resources in #Education

In September 2018 the UC Library added VR headsets to the catalogue, available in the short loan section. Students can loan the headsets for up to 3 hours. Support for using the headsets will be limited to basic guidance, and beyond this it will be up to students to have their apps and content ready, just needing the headset to get going. Supporting this technology is difficult given the number of different phones, OS versions and apps out there giving rise to any app recommendations working on one phone and not another. For this reason support will be limited, however as our in-house knowledge grows more advice will be able to be given. A small number of headsets to start with represents a low risk investment that also allows staff to up skill in VR technology. Demo sessions and training given to Library staff has been fun and a valuable sharing activity as everyone is at different stages of familiarity. Now that a number of staff in the library have been up skilled we can begin t

Make your #onlinelearning experience more personal with a #lightboard

In August 2019 the DVCA at UC wanted to invest in some light boards as he had seen the educational benefits at the previous university he worked for. I was tasked with putting in a comprehensive bid to an annual equipment fund and, if successful, follow the process through to implementation working with AV Services, and Library Services. As of March 2020 the Library houses UC's first ever Lighboard, and academic staff are putting it to good use. The Lightboard is a glass panel filled with light which stands between the teacher and the audience/camera. The teacher faces the camera (viewers) and writes on the glass using liquid chalk (for best results), the results glow on the glass, and a camera is used to record the session. The camera we use flips the image horizontally so the writing appears in the correct orientation without having to flip it in a post production process. The videos capture the face and hand movements/gestures of the teacher, as well as the hand written conten
