It is very common for students to lose interest and motivation during lesson, especially when the lessons are developed exclusively in a traditional manner. Lecturers need to learn how to use the new online tools to improve their methodology and make the lessons visually appealing and interesting. They also must design questions that allows students to measure their learning progress, modulating learning according to the needs of each student. To achieve this objective, the H5P software is proposed as a useful tool
Lack of knowledge, lack of motivation, visual learning, self-assessment, curricular adaptation
After the COVID-19 situation during the last months of 19-20 course, the lessons had to be adapted to an online format at the University Rey Juan Carlos (as well as all the other universities). Many of the lecturers of the URJC did not have the experience and knowledge to adapt completely their lessons to an efficient online model.
The aim of the present user case is to help teachers to adapt online test and lessons using H5P tools. However, principally, the idea is to use these new tools arising from the pandemic, to solve the long standing problem of the decay of student motivation during the course.
Increase the awareness of teachers of the utility of the new online tools to improve the quality of their lectures and capture the interest of students in subject content. A microMOOC about how to carry out periodic test using H5P will be developed.
Include the created microMOOC as part of the official training courses offered to teachers at URJC.
MicroMOOC: guide for the development and implementation of online tests based on H5P.
This CPD scenario describes a User case in which lecturers develop their competence in designing interactive teaching and how to engage and motivate students and how to facilitate discipline specific thinking and how to use blended learning and develop attitudes in supporting student development and enabling students’ well-being in a learning process and inclusivity.
In this CPD scenario the participants are using a very short open online course, a micro mooc (μmooc) and professionalize in a close connection to their own teaching practice (at their workplace) and meet in person on location with the training staff and with other participants.
