“We do not learn from experience … We learn from reflecting on experience.”- John Dewey
Learning journals in online courses offer learners with space to make notes, reflect on things learnt, react on various business scenarios etc, making learning truly learner centric. Learners can store and access the journals created while learning, to gain a quick overall view of the things learnt. Learners can also use these journals for various purposes according to their need.
This week’s E-learning Challenge is to show how learning journals and note-taking can be used in e-learning courses. So, we put out a visually attractive interaction, where learners are enabled to create journals one after another at their convenience and save them.
We‘ve come up with a window like screen with two parts; one carrying the content and another to display three learning journals with a bin below to save. To enhance more from the design perspective, we’ve used a dark color wooden background and used a contrast color to draw learners attention for interaction.
Using Articulate Storyline, we have come up with this short interaction on the use of learning journals that offer learners a more effective and reflective learning experience.
