This is assignment 2. You need to prepare an online presentation. At the same time we are going to push you into using online multimedia of some sort. Your presentation could be another Youtube video. It could be an audio recording, or it could be a slide presentation on Slideshare or Myplick. There are many ways to publish ideas online, these are just a few.

Estimated time: two weeks - 2 to 15 November 2009.

To do

1. Prepare a presentation that outlines your idea for developing flexible learning. In it refer to some things you have learned in this course, and importantly, use your presentation as an opportunity to clearly explain your idea. Think of it as "selling" the benefits of your idea to someone who needs convincing. Your boss, your potential students, a funding agent. As a suggested starting structure:
  • Background information that led you to your thinking;
  • Blow by blow, what is it you plan to do?
  • A day in the life of students who will get to enjoy the flexibility of your course - remember to include considerations such as access and equity, sustainability and cultural sensitivity;
  • What do you need? Where will you get it from?
2. Publish your presentation online and embed it into your blog.
3. Give feedback to at least three other participants who have published their presentations to their blogs

What to do with feedback you get on your plan

Once you get feedback on your plan, make sure you write this up on your blog and describe how your plan may have changed as a result. Remember if you wish to illustrate or confirm key points about your plan which others may query, you can link to previous posts you have made on any of the topics. For example, if someone says "but what about sustainability considerations", and you know you have already written a post about this, then you can link to the post. However you may still have to explain how the sustainability issues you previously wrote about relate to your plan as it is now.
