Travitor's Method and Practice of Video Learning
Travitor courses are designed for the best online learning experience. Students watch courses at their own pace, create projects to practice what they’ve learned, and interact with each other. As an instructor, you get to facilitate this unique learning experience, and that all starts with understanding the method and practice of the online learning experience:
1. Self-Paced, Digestible Learning
In today's fast-paced digital world, bite-sized content is the proven to be easiest for students to digest, understand, and remember. Courses, on average, include 20-60 minutes of pre-recorded video content broken down into a series of short 2-5 minute videos. Rather than teaching a broad, sweeping skill set, your course should hone in on one specific project, concept or skill. This digestible format allows for focused and engaged learning - anytime, anywhere.
2. Project-Based Learning
Include a fun, quick project that helps students practice what you’re teaching and share their process with the course community to get feedback, which leads to a more effective and lasting learning experience. For many instructors, seeing their students' projects come to life is one of the most rewarding parts of teaching.
3. Community-Based Learning
Students on Travitor interact with each other by answering questions, sharing tips and resources, and providing each other with feedback and encouragement. Often times, students learn just as much from one another as they learn from you. You'll facilitate this by providing as many opportunities for collaboration as possible.
