Welcome to the ED722 Course ! 

Ian O'Byrne will be facilitating this course with the help and support of Verena Roberts (more information about Verena can be found HERE).

This is a course  to introduce you to emerging trends, issues and practices in online learning. This course is designed around experiencing online learning while providing enough scaffolding to support you in creating personalized learning pathways. The goal is to encourage you to experience a wide variety of online learning opportunities so that you can best facilitate other educators based on your experiences. While there are weekly course expectations and guidelines, the learning you construct will be determined by what you put into this course. This course has integrated formal and informal assignments and assessments in order for you to demonstrate evidence of your learning.

Each week is one stage in the process of experiencing online learning. We will be integrating different online learning opportunities throughout the course:
 In week 4 we will be joining the DLMOOC (Deeper Learning Massive open Online Course) as an ITDML Team. We will integrate their weekly themes into our own syllabus.

You will also have networked opportunities to learn with other educators like the University of Alaska in Week 7 and the Gamifi-ED Project in Weeks 7-9.

Between the course design and the networked learning opportunities, you will are encouraged to personalize your learning journey.
