Talk:Samantha's Mini-Course: Project-Based Learning
-- Nicole Miller (talk) 20:37, 7 April 2014 (EDT)
Hi Samantha, I LOVE the bright colors and look of your page. Plus, the questions seem thoughtful and engage the learner. However, your link to the video does not work, and I still could not access it when I attempted to copy and paste it into the browser. Great start! Nicole
I'm glad you were able to fix your video link. The Project Based youtube video was interesting and informative. Personally, I find visual aids and videos to be helpful in retaining information as opposed to learning through only written information.

Your mini-course is visually appealing with great graphics and vivid colors. I will limit my comments to the Intro and Lesson 1. The connection between the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and PBL was clearly illustrated. The questions prompt engagement and the video explains PBL in a direct and amusing manner. I also especially like the prompt for participants to apply the new knowledge to their prior-knowledge.
I loved the flow of your course but was curious about all the lessons on the same page. Would participants use the same discussion for the whole course?
Overall, you have done a great job!

Hi Samantha! I really like the visual appearance of your mini-course, there is a lot going on and it makes it fun to look at and really draws the learner in. I like the connection to Bloom's Taxonomy. I think that your lesson is well outlined. My only question is, where do you intend to have the learners answer the question(s)? Is this on their own or would you like them posted in a discussion forum? The video was also helpful and informative. This looks great so far! -Stephanie
What I like/What worked well:
* Intro: clear info about what to expect in course, nice picture, your personal tone in your intro "lecture",
* Lesson 1: nice images!, bold headings, information chunked, good resources, clear objectives, nice icons, relevant meaningful activities,
What you might consider:
* Intro: Please add a big bold course title. Please create four or more pages. One for you intro which will contain links to each lesson. Then one for each lesson. Take a look at Lisa's intro page to get an idea of how to set up the intro as a separate page. I would keep this as the intro page (your actual intro paragraph is very good) and move all of the lesson stuff into other pages.
* Lesson 1: love it. Once you have lessons on separate pages make sure that you provide links among them, to your portfolio and back to course home page.
Looks great! -- Galen Fellows (talk) 17:09, 7 May 2014 (EDT)
As always you bring fantastic work to light. Your visuals are spot on and pointed, your flow of information and content has a distinct purpose, and you bring in several great examples. There really isn't anything that I can think of to improve. I truly appreciate how you handled allowing this course to grow over time as more members of the KNILT community take a closer look at it without requiring your presence.
