Together with industrial partners, TSU jointly is developing an electronic exchange of educational micro content for higher professional education programs on the basis of LMS “Odin”.

The project purpose is to improve performance of online learning technologies at a higher school through application of principles of micro-learning and oversight of the content on such disciplines as “History”, “Philosophy”, “Mathematics”, “Physics”.

About the project

Microlearning as an approach is a concept of absorbing any knowledge in small units. Content supervision is an approach to educational solution control, including selection and processing of materials on a certain topic from available sources, compilation of collected and processed content into an integrated consistent educational solution. In the second half of 2021, the designed solutions will be validated during educational process at TSU and partnering universities. Expected positive effect from implementation can be used in the additional professional education program.

The content exchange design is based on several principles:

  1. Obligatory application of reverse design, when developing a course: determination of formed competences, decomposing into micro-learning results, evaluation fund development, content development.
  2. Author’s content alienability. A separate content fragment can be retrieved from the course and used autonomously and can be integrated with LMS of the universities.
  3. Flexible structuring of a lecture, discipline, program. There is one course, but many author’s versions. The Marketplace search system (by topic of learning results) and course builder enable teachers to create author’s ready-to-use assemblies of available content in their logic.  Not only a teacher (content supervisor), but a student as well can act as an assembler (individual educational trajectories at the discipline level).
  4. Implementation in the format of hybrid learning. The course materials are initially designed for completion of online activities with interaction in the auditorium, laboratory, and workshop. Teacher conversion from a consumer into a co-author enables reaching higher learning results (analysis, assessment, creation).
