Abstract

In an online learning environment, student engagement is facilitated in part through the design and organisation of learning material. This paper details the decisions that learning designers made, emerging from the use of a newly developed engagement model. Specifically, this paper explores what learning designers did in line with each of the five student engagement practices associated with the engagement model when designing and developing learning interventions for a subject that had once been delivered on campus (with a classroom environment). Findings related to the impact of the learning design interventions outlined in this paper will be reported later, in a subsequent paper, as this subject is currently “live.”
