Dr Christopher Jobling

Senior Lecturer




Here are the answers you submitted for this exercise.

1. Why, when, and how will you make use of the DADDIE model for planning your own blended learning?

You said:

DADDIE is a structured model and therefore provides a framework on which to design and build a learning activity and reflect on its success afterwards.

Diana says: 


It’s important to be reminded of all these design stages.


The DADDIE model can be used at any level of design, from a single learning activity to a whole course. You probably use a lot of it implicitly already. In blended learning design going round that design loop helps you think about how best to take your learners (summarised at the Analyse stage) to your intended learning outcome (summarised at the Define stage) and what blend conventional methods and digital technologies will help you do that best (the Design stage). 


Probably on your own for individual activities, sessions, or a week or so of learning, using the Learning Designer or a similar tool. Probably with colleagues for team teaching, or for updating or upgrading or redesigning parts of an existing course; or for a new course or curriculum.

2. Which online OER repositories will you explore the next time you design a learning activity?

You said:


Diana said:

Searching an online repository is always worth a try. You can be lucky and find just what you need, if you try different combinations of search words. 

Your colleagues may be happy to share useful links. Following on Twitter the people who are active in your field would also help in finding good sources of OERs.

3. Which of these technology-based methods of assessment BOTH reduces teacher feedback workload AND is good way for students to show what they have learned?

You said:

Recording learner presentations for peer feedback, Wikis for collaborative writing assignments, Computer marked assessments, Digital coversheets for feedback , Voting tools ,

Diana said:

My answers here would be:

A. Recording learner presentations for peer feedback – Correct

B. Generic video feedback on assignments – This is not related to how students show what they have learned

C. Wikis for collaborative writing assignments – Correct

D. Learner-generated multimedia assignments – This does not reduce teacher workload as is quite complex to assess

E. Audio / video feedback on assignments – This is not related to how students show what they have learned

F. Computer marked assessments – Correct

G. Digital coversheets for feedback – Correct

H. Voting tools – Correct

4. We asked you to rate five statemenst in terms how good a description of flipped learning you think they are.

Allows students to develop independent learning 

You said: 4

Diana says:  4 – But not very good unless it scaffolds their independent learning skills in some way   

Saves the teacher preparation time 

You said: 1

Diana says: 1 – Because they still have to prepare carefully the work to be done at home to make sure it is engaging   

Supports social learning 

You said: 4

Diana says: 5 – There is more chance for interaction in class   

Gives learners more feedback on their learning 

You said: 4

Diana says: 3 – This is very dependent on whether the design for homework includes computer-generated feedback, and class activities allow for peer and/or tutor feedback  

Improves the use of class time 

You said: 5

Diana says:  5 – Because it brings more active learning to the classroom

5. Decide below which tools are most suitable for learning through discussion and learning through collaboration.

You said:

Good for discussion: Twitter, Online forum, Chat room, Blackboard Collaborate,

Good for collaboration: Wiki, Googledoc,

Diana says:


Discussion – No, not enough text for discussion 

Collaboration – No, there’s no opportunity to create or build something

Online forum 

Discussion – Yes 

Collaboration – Possibly, but little opportunity to create or build something   


Discussion – Not by itself as it does not support discussion 

Collaboration – Yes   


Discussion – Not by itself as it does not support discussion 

Collaboration – Yes   

Chat room 

Discussion – Not by itself as it does not support discussion 

Collaboration – No, no opportunity to create or build something   

Blackboard Collaborate 

Discussion – Yes 

Collaboration – Yes, if well designed
