Final Submission- A course Walkthrough

Thank You very much Dr. Katia Hildebrandt

The process of creating the course prototype was enjoyable for me. I was initially concerned since I had never used anything like this before, and even at Covid, I had just used Google Slides and used Google Classroom for the assignment submission. Although I had no idea what it would take to create a course, I was eager to attempt something

new. I liked how the weeks built on each other; not only did it make the prototype seem less daunting, but it also introduced me to new technology that I may not have attempted otherwise. I discovered that I could improve and engage my prototype by adding something new every week.

It was a game changer for me in this course to be able to adapt this task to my own classroom. I wanted to make something that I could use with my pupils. However, this did cause some difficulties in the design process. As I discussed in earlier posts, I designed this Chemistry Basics for the Beginners course for my Grade 9 &10 students. It is always difficult to create useable technology for young learners. At times, I worried that I wouldn’t be able to use certain elements of the course, particularly the cooperation pieces. I enjoyed watching how other people created collaborative spaces using various applications, but when I considered my own course, I did not believe it would complement it in the same manner.

In practice, I too found the interactive video on LUMI to be a bit difficult. I thought it was a wonderful tool, however combining exam questions with reading is challenging, especially early in the school year. Despite these obstacles, I was able to design a course that I believed contained many vital topics while also (hopefully) working for my students. I discovered that making the initial Google Classroom was straightforward, and that using the ADDIE template allowed me to simply structure the course. Adding activities and adding , webpages, and lumi was a breeze. Learning about accessibility forced me to slow down and fill out all of the accessible features LUMI had to offer.

I was comfortable after our feedback session that I was on the correct course. I told my group that I didn’t think I’d done enough, and that it was difficult to compare my work to that of other students. My group made me feel confident and comfortable to prepare the modules. We discussed how we each have to bring the technology into our own contexts and make it work for our students. I found the entire course to be really intriguing; I’ve already discussed LUMI with several of my coworkers, and I’m thrilled to attempt this course in the fall and bring what I’ve learned about online and blended learning to my friends.

Self Introduction- Embracing Blended Learning to Make Chemistry Easy and Accessible

Who am I?

Good day to all of you, whether you’re a student or a chemist! I just fogot to introduce myself and my field of study in the busy schedule of learning of Online and Blended Learning course.  I’m Thenmozhi Babu, and I couldn’t be more happy to launch my blog and begin sharing with you some of the things I’ve learned from my experiences and observations. After spending more than a decade in the classroom instructing chemistry, I’ve come to the conclusion that the discipline is so much more than a topic; rather, it’s a fascinating examination into the very fabric of our day-to-day lives. Through this body of work, I want to demonstrate that everyone, if they have the right mindset, is capable of appreciating the aesthetic value of chemistry.

My Interest

My first interest in chemistry was prompted by the inextricable connection of the topic to our everyday lives, which continues to keep me interested to this day. Chemistry is a fascinating field of study due to the fact that it permeates every aspect of our lives, from the air we breathe to the water we consume. Over the course of my teaching career, I’ve seen several students struggle to grasp the concepts being covered in class, and many of them eventually gave up because they found the subject too challenging. Because of this challenge, I’ve been trying to come up with innovative methods for teaching and studying chemistry in the hopes of making the subject more appealing to a wider audience.

Use of Blended and Online Learning

The use of blended learning and technology in my classroom has resulted in a dramatic makeover of the space, which has enabled me to interact with students on a far deeper and more meaningful level. My education has been able to go much beyond the limitations of a traditional classroom as a direct result of my use of these cutting-edge tools. My channel on YouTube is one of the primary forums through which I provide practical information on how one might study Chemistry in a more effective manner. I am able to break down complex concepts for my pupils by using material that is pleasing to the eye. This allows them to more easily and enthusiastically absorb the information.

The incorporation of blended learning and technology into my work environment has proven to be tremendously useful, but the transition has not been without its fair share of challenges. Adjusting to the new techniques of teaching and the materials that were made available to them required some time and effort on their part. However, the benefits it brought to my children more than made up for the trouble it required. In addition, the environment of the internet has its own unique set of difficulties, such as the need to guarantee equitable access, to accommodate a variety of educational needs, and to cultivate community in spite of the existence of a digital divide.

In the future, one of my goals is to develop up the Basics of Chemistry curriculum modules using what I’ve learned about the successful design of online and blended learning environments. I’m really looking forward to that! My objective is to broaden access to these courses among a diverse range of students by making them engaging, thought-provoking, and independent learning experiences. My goal is to make studying Chemistry a fun and interactive experience for students by using multimedia, quizzes, and experiments that the students will carry out on their own.

My goal with this blog is to provide a forum in which I can discuss my ideas on blended and online education, as well as any other relevant materials that I come across. Together, we may study the many educational possibilities afforded by the advances in technology that have occurred in recent decades. I am certain that if we adopt the proper approach, put in the necessary amount of effort, and make use of materials that are up to date, we will be able to assist any student in feeling at ease with chemistry.

I am delighted that you have chosen to accompany me on this adventure, and I really hope that our time spent together is as enjoyable to you as it is to me. Please don’t hesitate to utilize the comments section to make any suggestions or ask any topics that you’d want me to address in forthcoming posts. Let’s put our heads together to find ways to simplify chemistry for everyone

I have designed the Basics of Chemistry modules for the Beginners in higher studies who feels the chemistry is difficult to approach.

Online and Blended Learning- Overview

In recent years, online and blended learning have become well-liked and successful educational strategies, providing new options for both students and teachers. These strategies make use of technology’s power to improve learning opportunities, encourage flexibility, and get around geographical limitations.

The distribution of educational materials and teaching over the internet and digital platforms is referred to as online learning. Without having to be present in a typical classroom, it gives students the chance to access course materials, take part in discussions, and complete assignments from a distance. A dynamic and interesting learning experience is made possible by the inclusion of features like video lectures, interactive multimedia, discussion forums, and online evaluations on online learning platforms.

On the other side, blended learning blends in-person education with online learning. It combines conventional classroom instruction with online materials and exercises. Students participate in both in-person sessions with their instructors and online exercises that they can complete at their own leisure when using a blended learning strategy. This method enables students to access and review online resources outside of the classroom while still gaining from face-to-face interaction with their teachers and peers during in-person sessions, resulting in a more individualized learning experience.

Online and hybrid learning each have their benefits. They first offer flexibility in terms of time and place. The flexibility of having access to course materials and taking part in discussions allows students to juggle their academic obligations with other responsibilities. Those with business or family obligations, as well as those who reside in rural places, will benefit most from this flexibility.

Second, varied learning preferences and styles can be accommodated via online and hybrid learning. While the option to revisit and study the material aids people who benefit from repetition and self-paced learning, the usage of multimedia and interactive features in online courses appeals to visual and auditory learners. A range of teaching techniques and activities can be used with blended learning thanks to the incorporation of internet resources, which encourages active learning and student engagement.

Online and hybrid learning can also promote a sense of accessibility and inclusivity. They can offer educational opportunities to people with disabilities or those living in underprivileged areas, for example, who may have physical or geographic limitations. Online tools can also help students from different backgrounds communicate and work together, fostering cross-cultural understanding and a global viewpoint

A Chemistry teacher- Passion

As a passionate chemistry teacher, I strive to create an engaging and inspiring learning environment for my students. Every class I teach reflects my genuine passion for the subject. I think it’s important to go beyond the textbook and relate chemistry ideas to practical uses, which makes the topic interesting and approachable. To pique my pupils’ attention and encourage their curiosity, I am continuously looking for cutting-edge teaching strategies and practical experiments. The “aha” moments when my pupils understand difficult ideas and truly appreciate the beauty of chemistry make my heart swell with joy. I am committed to helping students succeed academically and encouraging them to follow their interests in science by challenging them to think critically and ask probing questions. My goal is to inspire the future generation of chemists, researchers, and problem-solvers by developing a love of chemistry in my pupils.

As a dedicated educator, I produce thorough training modules in my native tongue to promote efficient learning for chemistry beginners. I give students a rich and engaging experience by utilizing the capabilities of Google Classroom. These lessons are specifically created to gradually present fundamental ideas, ensuring a thorough comprehension of the subject. Students develop understanding of subjects like atomic structure, chemical bonding, and chemical reactions through engaging presentations, entertaining movies, and educational texts. To boost understanding and promote application, practical activities and tests are introduced. I also give students helpful time-management and study-strategy tips, enabling them to plan their study materials, handle difficult ideas, and enhance their learning. Google Classroom promotes a helpful and engaging learning environment by allowing for active involvement, peer collaboration, and simple access to clarification. My goal with these carefully constructed modules is to provide beginning chemistry students the tools they need and spark a passion for chemistry that will last a lifetime.
