主页: https://www.canvas.net/courses/forums-for-a-future

简介: This course examines the political (world order), economic (globalization), social/cultural (beliefs, values, and lifestyle), and psychological (human capacity for change) forces that are re-defining the quality of life in the 21st century. Students will leave Forums for a Future with an explicit (written) worldview of their own creation as the basis for developing a coherent sense of self-direction for living peacefully and sustainably on a crowded planet in the 21st century. Students should have some familiarity with the basic concepts of political science, economics, sociology, and psychology. Although an introductory level course in any of these areas is helpful, it is not necessary. Much of the material has been published by the instructor as op-ed pieces in newspapers and popular (not academic or technical) books. Any thoughtful person can and should grasp the messages and may simply skip the complicated conceptual writing and still profit from reading the contributions of others. It is not highbrow; it is intended to promote general public civic discourse. This course is based on a very popular honors level course at the University of South Florida. Participants should have related background and knowledge along with the ability to self-direct their learning.

Fundamentals of Structured Writing for Technical Documentation (Canvas) 0 个评论 关注

开始时间: 08/19/2013 持续时间: 未知

主页: https://www.canvas.net/courses/fundamentals-of-structured-writing-for-technical-documentation

简介: The field of technical writing has come a long way from writing clearly and concisely using a keyboard into a new world of structured writing and content management. Documents are no longer written and published as individual entities within a documentation set but rather written as data segments for reuse on systems that automate processes for controlling and managing the segments. Information is no longer published as a document solely for paper ouput, but for electronic access on PCs, cell phones, and other handheld devices. This means that the technical writer today must be familiar with the solutions that employ the features of structured writing for reuse, and the latest standard approaches for segmenting and storing information for output to multiple types of formats and access on different devices. The course is designed to further your technical writing skills with use of XMetaL, XML, and the DITA standard. It also introduces you to other writing standards, output options, and content management systems. Basic knowledge of writing standards, output options, and content management systems is helpful. Participants can choose to receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. The cost of the Certificate and Processing will generally be $59.00 (US) domestic and $69.00 (US) international. For this self-paced course, the average time of completion is 6-7 weeks. There are 7 lessons. You may complete the lessons and activities at your own pace after the course start date and complete the work as quickly as you care to.

简介: In this course, we will study the emergence of the major civilizations of the ancient world, beginning with the Paleolithic Era (about 2.5 million years ago) and finishing with the end of the Middle Ages in fifteenth century A.D. We will pay special attention to how societies evolved across this expanse of time—from fragmented and primitive agricultural communities to more advanced and consolidated civilizations. To do this, we will rely upon textbook readings to provide historical overviews of particular civilizations and then utilize primary-source documents to illuminate the unique features of these individual societies. By the end of the course, you will possess a thorough understanding of important overarching social, political, religious, and economic themes in the ancient world, ranging from the emergence of Confucian philosophy in Asia to the fall of imperial Rome. You will also understand how many aspects of these ancient civilizations continue to remain relevant in today’s world.

简介: How do you make sure to address not just the content of your teaching in an online course, but also your students? Students want to know their instructor. This challenges online faculty to integrate technologies, such as avatars, video, and social media, to introduce their digital personalities and enhance learners’ experiences. This is called “humanizing,” which, according to DuCharme-Hansen, Dupin-Bryant, 2005 “reduces the psychological distance between the students and the instructor.” As online learning initiatives continue to expand, so does the need to leverage new learning technology to ensure students feel connected and engaged with the instructor and the course material. Course Objectives: Learn how to integrate educational technology tools into an online course with an emphasis on technology that can create an instructor presence or increase personal interaction. Share insights and suggestions about how to “humanize” online courses by maximizing the use of flexible educational technology tools. Demonstrate how technology-facilitated interactions can make instructors and learners more "real" online and how this correlates with student learning and retention.

简介: The beginning of the 21st century has been called the Information Age because of rapid increases in information and information resources. Information literacy is now a core competency mandated by higher education accreditation associations for almost all U.S. colleges and universities. It goes far beyond simple web searches and equips students with the research skills necessary to find, evaluate, and appropriately use the types of information required for college level research. This course is geared toward college students, especially those majoring in art and design, but will be useful to anyone who wants to become a more effective searcher. Students will explore the “deep web” (information not found through search engines) and experiment with various search strategies and filtering techniques. Students will also be encouraged to explore resources found in local libraries.

主页: https://www.canvas.net/courses/introduction-to-strategic-thinking

简介: This is a short interdisciplinary course on strategic thinking and some of its most powerful tools. Strategic thinking is not exclusive to business applications or the military. The skills taught in this course can be useful to anyone. Young professionals can use the knowledge to effectively plan their careers, stay-at-home mothers can use it to improve how they communicate with their children, and entrepreneurs can use it to better position their business in the marketplace. Anyone who wants to learn how to think about and solve social, business, personal, environmental, or other problems in smarter and more creative ways will benefit from this course. We will draw lessons and use concepts from economics and game theory, scenario planning, and futures studies, as well as philosophy and language. The course includes reading material, video lectures, and audio content, which is accompanied by short quizzes derived from that content. We will also work on case studies for each topic where students will have an opportunity to practice the tools and frameworks and discuss them with the learning community. At a reasonable pace of approximately one hour per day, a student can finish the course in about one week. The workload will depend on how quickly students consume the content and how much time and effort they wants to devote to the case study assignments. The course will be open for three weeks. This course is designed to be a starting point for people who are just beginning to learn about strategic thinking. It is relatively short, informal, easy to follow, and practical (and hopefully entertaining).
