Today, I am at the Lifelong Learning Summit in Lillehammar organized by the International Counicl for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) and the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences (INN University).
Very shortly, I will present the Idea management course, a hybrid mooc developed for business professionals about the initial phase of the idea management process. The course is a joint effort of my colleague Johan Netz and other colleagues at the Service Research Center at Karlstad University. The focus of our presentation will be the digital learning environment we created together with Tom Woodward and Jim Groom. We will question the focus of teachers on the learning management plattform (LMS) and try to expound the problems with this. With our course as example, we try to highlight that there is an entire ecosystem of digital resources which we could use to enhance the students’ learning experience, which many of us are not even consider to use in our courses. Johan and I will try to inspire and show what is possible with a little help from people who have done this.
