Creating a Self-Mapped Learning Pathway

1 min read

One of the main questions I get asked about Learning Pathways design is "how do learners map their own pathways?" There really is no one tool that does everything that is needed (yet), so I have been considering how to use various tools combined to allow learners to self-map their own pathway, collect artifacts that demonstrate how they moved through their pathway, and then reflected on the choices that they made. This blog post explores at least one idea I have for that using Storify and This is just one idea I have - there are many other ways to do this. Maybe someday there will be a tool to make all of this easier. Until then, DIY options like this will work just fine.

The Beginnings of the Learner Pathways Model

"Designing a Dual Layer cMOOC/xMOOC" is probably the first attempt to document the learner pathways model that was conceptualized in a DesignJam for DALMOOC in 2014. The original name for the idea was "dual layer," but since that term implies heirachy, it was soon abandoned. The evolution of these ideas will be documented here. The overall idea pulls on a lot of existing ideas, so this initial blog post became a series of posts as we tried to flesh out the idea. Some of these ideas stuck, others did not. The diagram that was created for this blog post basically contains the idea in a nutshell.
