Here is a Web-based version of my ECEL09 conference presentation on the topic:
Online Presentation Strategies for Visual Learners
This Web-based PowerPoint presentation (optimized for the Internet Explorer browser) outlines the major points of a (peer-reviewed) paper that provides a foundation for identifying and measuring learning styles in an online course, how online learners can accommodate divergent teaching styles, and how online teachers can accommodate divergent learning styles.
The presentation continues with a description of how these research findings have been initially applied in the author’s online courses as the basis for subsequent action research focusing on usability of these techniques within an online learning environment.
The instructional techniques of this innovation are described in terms of how online teachers can search, select, encode, and annotate video segments, still images, animations, and other visual types of information in course management systems within the context of legitimate re-use tactics and data repository use that conform to established intellectual property conventions for public domain, licensed, and fair use of existing visual materials.
Presented at the 8th European Conference on e-Learning, University of Bari in Bari, Italy on 29-30 October 2009.
