I'm always on a mission to promote and increase "interaction" ;-)
Any possibility to include a "quiz" or microblog activity on this page?
Drawing on our course evaluation data from other mOOCs -- learners value these features in the course design.
Generally speaking, I agree with your suggestion to include a p2p interaction element with activities. However I was thinking that the overview page just provides the big picture for the unit. The intro page seems more appropriate for an activity, and in fact there is one included on that page in this unit.
Also, there are many Q&A questions available in the original material. All of the questions I've looked at are short answer. We talked about adding them to the content. I've not gotten time to add them yet, but before doing so, we should really consider how much "interaction" we want to include....I think there is a point which would be too much.
I think the Overview page should be more pedagogically focused, with the Introduction page as more of an introduction to the content. With this in mind, I suggest we move the short introduction section (the part after the heading "Introduction") in the Introduction page to the beginning of the Overview page, as this bit just lists the topics to be covered. I suggest we omit the heading "Introduction".
I suggest moving the beginning paragraph in the Overview page to the beginning of the Introduction page, noting that there is content overlap with defining art, which would need to be addressed.
I agree these pages need improvement. I'm wondering if the Overview should give a brief high level sketch of what is covered in the course (i.e. content, types of activities...what to expect ) and the Introduction the substantive entry to the content...to start the engagement. And pedagogical information would go to the course manual.
Now maybe we're saying mostly the same thing but using different language... :)
I will rearrange this page and the next to fit with the separate intro and overview scheme that you've outlined.
