Learning Design Challenge #10: Sharing Individual Content via Community Portfolios


One of the more interesting learning environments made popular through the evolution fo the Internet is the “content sharing environment.” Within a learning context, this type of environment often involves having participants create content of come kind and then share that work with a larger learning community as part of a prescribed activity. This type of learning environment is highly flexible, and can be heavily prescribed (formal) or mostly voluntary (informal).

Our question today is, “What are the possibilities for designing great content sharing activities in a learning environment?”

This goal for this learning environment model (LEM) challenge is to design a LEM for a content sharing activity of some kind.

Some questions you might want to think about include:

  1. What is your desired experience for the activity?
  2. How will you motivate participants to engage in “authentic” sharing?
  3. What kind(s) of feedback make the most sense for this kind of environment?
  4. What are some possible constraints for this design?
