What did you find surprising or striking as you furthered your knowledge about how people learn?
What I found very surprising and striking during this course about how people learn was how many different learning styles there actually are. I think that I was very surprised at all the different learning styles that people learn with either in online learning or face to face learning.I think that another think that I was surprised about that furthered my knowledge about how people learn is that people do not just learn based on one learning style, people learn based on their own learning style and it might be a couple different learning styles put together that makes up their own personal learning style.
How has this course deepened your understanding of your personal learning process?
This course has really deepened my own understanding of my own personal learning style is that I learn based on a couple of different learning styles put together instead of just one learning style. This course has especially showed me why some of the learning styles do not work and why some of the learning styles are easier for me to learn new information. I have learned that I am a very hands on learner and I learn better when I have a hands on project, however this class has taught me that online learning I can learn from My professor as well as my other classmates.
What have you learned regarding the connection between learning theories, learning styles, educational technology, and motivation?
During this course I have learned that learning theories, learning styles, educational technology, and motivation are all related. I have learned that students learn better when they are able to work together and communicate with one another on a regular basis. I have also learned that I have motivation to learn when I am on an online class especially during discussions so that I can successfully communicate with my classmates.
How will your learning in this course help you as you further your career in the field of instructional design?
Yes what I learned from this course will help me further my career in the field of instructional design. I have already learned so much awesome information from this course about online learning and how to better your experience with online learning that I have already applied the information I have learned in this course to information from other online courses that I am taking this semester. This course has already helped me out in my field of instructional design by showing me throughout the course all the online resources to help me learn information.
