STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS: META-COGNITIVE VIDCASTS FOR ORIENTATION OF ONLINE LEARNERS

G. Richards, N. Ostashewski

Athabasca University (CANADA)
Following the spread of internet connectivity in Canada, almost every university college and public school has introduced online courses. The increased access has made a wide range of courses from high school onwards available, and students of all academic abilities are stumbling around in the unfamiliar world of on-line learning. This paper demonstrates a series of 7 short (3 minute) digital video clips (vidcasts) produced to introduce meta-cognitive success strategies to online high school students, their parents and teachers. Stressing well-informed choices, planning and pro-active communication skills, the series targets francophone high school students in minority language environments where on-line courses are rapidly providing access to a greater selection of courses. Results of preliminary evaluations with high school and adult learners will be discussed.
