It’s no secret that online learning is one of the fastest growing trends in higher education. Currently, 33% of higher education students now take at least one course online, and nearly 75% of academic leaders rate online education as the same or superior to brick-and-mortar courses, according to the Babson Survey Research Group’s 2013 Survey of Online Learning.
With less face-to-face interaction happening between students and teachers in an online course, quality learning design becomes even more of an imperative to ensure the experience is engaging, effective, and matches students’ digital expectations. Drawing on research from fields such as informatics, human factors, cognitive psychology, and human computer interaction, the learning sciences are interdisciplinary and explore how learning is manifested, demonstrated and measured.
