Which, of course, made me think about Learner's Rights. Some students created such a list in 1995. What would be the elearning version? I can think of several principles I'd include (and I realize most are not exclusive to elearning):
- To be respected for what they already know.
- To know why the learning is important to them.
- To have the most effective and efficient learning experience possible.
- To be expected to be a partner in the learning.
- To have information resources when useful.
- To have an appropriate mix of media.
- To have the complexity of real life reflected.
- To be supported both cognitive and emotionally through the learning experience.
What do you think?
