Where are we?

We’re talking about the CyberCourse vision. “Vision” is about outcomes. What is the learning world like for people who have CyberCourse?

The first part of that is: what are courses like for students? We talked about three core issues:

  • Exercises and feedback
  • Deep learning
  • Metacognition

These are some Big Wins students get with CyberCourse. The research is clear:

  • Exercises and feedback improve skills learning
  • Deep learning helps students become problem solvers
  • Metacognitive awareness helps students overcome learning obstacles

Many traditional courses lack these things, particularly formative feedback. CyberCourse makes frequent formative feedback practical, at scale. The vision has become real.

Let’s move on to the next part of the vision: how authors create Cycos.
