Part 1: Research and short answer questions 

For each topic, you must refer to the resources provided and read each question carefully. You will need to ensure you take note of the volume of response requirement where indicated.

To complete this part of the assessment task you must complete all answers in each topic:

  • Topic 1: LMS functionality and policies
  • Topic 2:Tools and technologies to support e-learning
  • Topic 3:E-learning support

Topic 1: LMS functionality and policies

Read each question carefully. Each answer must be completed satisfactorily to be assessed as competent on this part of the task.

You may refer to any the following LMS or e-learning programs when completing the questions below. You may also select another LMS or e-learning program instead of those listed.

LMS or e-learning programs suggested (see Appendix 1 for access instructions):

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Google Classroom and Google Workspace for Education
  • Kahoot!
  • Scootle
  • Canvas
  • Moodle
  1. Your class teacher wants to provide some learning resources for students to use at home and in independent study at school. Choose one of the listed LMS or e-learning programs above (or another),which would provide access to resources, and explain how its functionality would support the purpose described. (100-150 words) 

The LMS can be used to assign the necessary courses to current employees to ensure they are developing effective job skills, remain informed about product changes and maintain relevant knowledge through new product and compliance training. However, the learning management system (LMS) is a software application or web-based technology used to plan, implement, and assess a specific learning process. It is used for eLearning practices and, in its most common form, consists of two elements, a server that performs the base functionality and a user interface that is operated by instructors, students and supervisors. Also, the learning management system provides an instructor with a way to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. A learning management system may also provide students with the ability to use interactive features.

  1. Your high school has only 4 students who want to study a Year 10 Science unit on Earth and Space. Two other nearby schools have 5 and 6 students respectively. Choose a different LMS to that you described in Q1 and describe how the LMS could be used by a teacher at one of the schools, and an SLSO at each school, to support these students.  (100-150 words)

- LMS is software designed to manage and support efficient learning. It is a complete teaching solution where instructors can upload course content, and learners can access it through their profiles. The system supports both face-to-face learning and virtual classes.

- The LMS is a software tool that enables students to receive learning content and educational resources to continue their educational activities online. The use of LMS in education is a smart choice for educational institutions in today's world.

 

- As SLSO to support the student the MLS is to make sure the student is concentrating on what you are doing, maintain professional image and offer eLearning engagement rewards.

  1. Your school decides to begin using an LMS to provide learning materials to students. Describe how Copyright and Cyber-bulling policies will impact on the implementation of an LMS and identify two more policies or procedures which might impact. Describe how the school might manage the requirements of each policy as they implement the LMS. You can use policies from the site below or from any other school, educational institution or organisation within Australia that provides education to students aged 5-17. You must name the policy and provide a link to it or a copy of it with this assessment. Date of access must be included with links. (150-300 words)

Table 3 Scenario

Scenario 1: Setting up for e-learning  

You are the primary school SLSO and have been asked by the Year 5/6 teacher (Stage 3) teachers, to set up some independent learning materials in an e-learning program for approximately ten advanced maths students in Year 5/6. The students are in three different classes and have 3 different class teachers but work with one teacher only in maths (the classes regroup for maths). You are the only SLSO who supports the group. There is one in school IT technician.

You have been asked to investigate the use of Microsoft Teams as the school has access to this e-learning platform. Investigate the Microsoft Teams e-learning platform and answer the following questions.

  1. The teachers want the maths students to be in a group within the Microsoft Teams environment.
    Within that group they want the assignments or projects to be visible to all students and for the students to be able to undertake them in any order. What advice would you give re the use of Microsoft Teams and how these 2goals could be met?  (60-100 words) 
  1. The teachers want to be able to upload documents to Teams, having created them elsewhere. They want the students to be able to download copies to work on if they want to and upload them back to Teams for teacher and peer review. Each document would have the student outcomes for the learning session and be presented in Calibri size 12, and need to display consistently whether a Word.docx, Google.doc or pdf. What advice would you give the teachers in relation to what they want to do on Microsoft Teams? (50-80 words)
  1. The teachers would also like the students to be able to chat to each other and discuss problems together, face to face and online using synchronous and asynchronous tools. What advice would you give about this and the tools within Microsoft Teams that could be used by the students. Describe each briefly for the teachers. (40-80 words)
  1. The teachers want the students to be able to access Microsoft Teams on the class laptops (Windows machines), at home (Windows/Mac) or on personal devices (iPad, iPhone, Android tablets and phones). What advice would you give the teachers about this goal? (20-60 words)
  1. The teachers want you to give them information on how much information they will be able to obtain from Microsoft Teams on student learning outcomes and student progress through the independent learning tasks. Investigate Microsoft Teams and describe the possible ways teachers will be able to obtain this information. (80-120 words)
  1. One of the school’s goals is to make learning more accessible for students. Comment on how this project might assist the school in working towards the achievement of this goal. (70-120 words)

Table 4 Scenario

Scenario 2: Support for e-learning  

The teachers have gone ahead with their plan, and you have set up five independent learning projects within the Microsoft Teams environment. The students are in a team called Year 5/6 Maths Red and the projects are only available to this group. There are currently ten students within the group.

The teachers want to introduce the students to the project and get them started. They want you to make some recommendations about how support could be provided to the students:

· when they are getting started

· as they are working on the maths problems

· how troubleshooting (both e-learning and technical) will be managed   

  1. In the context of this scenario (age and number of students, number of teachers, goals of program) describe the benefits and weaknesses of using the following support models in each of those stages, and make recommendations about the best model to trial (each answer 50-100 words):
    1. Online teacher / facilitator
    2. Site-based teacher or facilitator
    3. Site based or virtual peer support group
    4. Help desk or technical expert
    5. User manuals, instructions and guides

 

  1. The teachers want some advice on how work might be managed within the group of teachers, yourself and the IT technician. What advice will you give them, if they decide to go with the site-based teacher, an SLSO during class time, a site based/virtual peer support group and an IT/technical expert as their support model? (100-200 words)

 

Part 3: Case studies 

To complete this part of the assessment, you are required to read the Case Study and each question carefully. Once you have read the information, you must complete your responses to the questions in the spaces provided.  

You will need to ensure you take note of the volume of response requirement where indicated.  

Table 5 Case study 1

Case Study 1 - e-learning for Gifted students  

A group of schools is providing support for students who have been identified as gifted. The program is open to primary school students from Years 2-6. The program is delivered through Moodle, and the students engage with the learning materials and the group both at school, in timetabled lessons, and at home when they want to. There are goals for the program and learning outcomes articulated for each student. The support model includes an online facilitator / teacher working the equivalent of two days per week (funded by the schools the students attend), peer support and IT support (available by phone from the Education Department’s IT help-desk). Individual schools provide other support to students but that varies per school as to whether it is provided through the class teacher, a support teacher, a parent or an SLSO.

  1. Describe how the group of schools might review the program to determine whether it is meeting student needs and organisational goals and whether the schools can continue to provide support for it. (100-150 words)
  1. Which groups of people would you get feedback from in undertaking the review? How would you gather the feedback?
    Give examples of at least 3 questions that you might ask. (40-80 words)
  1. After you have gathered feedback from all groups, what should be done with the feedback? (40-100 words)

Table 6 Case study 2

Case study 2 – Use of communication tools  

You are working as an SLSO in a High school. You and the teachers have been reviewing their e-learning programs. You have collated feedback from students, teachers and parents that indicates that they are generally satisfied that most learning outcomes are being met. However, all groups have given feedback that they would like more opportunities for the students to share their work and ideas online. The teachers are therefore now looking at how they can add communication tools, both for synchronous communication, such as chat and an online interactive whiteboard, and asynchronous communication, such as a message board or noticeboard, into their e-learning programs. This must be in line with policies and procedures, including privacy guidelines. They want you to support them in this process.

  1. Describe what the teachers might get you to investigate to help them decide which communication tools might be used.  (100-150 words)
  1. Describe how the following NSW policies and procedures will need to be considered as you implement communication tools into the programs. Identify at least 2 more which you will need to consider and add a brief statement about what each might cover. (80-150 words)

Policy or Procedure

What will need to be considered

Privacy

 

Child Protection

 

Student use of digital devices and online services

 
   
   
  1. What hardware, software and bandwidth issues might students encounter when using communication tools and how will you suggest these issues be dealt with? (50-80 word count)
