Video Lessons on Technological Progress, Digital Mediation and Educational Design

The aesthetic structures, through graphic interfaces, which enable a new perception of digital communication with the visual and verbal languages in a network will be understood in their purposes of configuration on the internet, for self-learning in their forms of network collaboration.

The video lessons are available on the YouTube channel TV Cultura & UNIVESP TV.

This is the channel for those who want to know more and are always learning! It is one of the communicative tools at the Virtual University of the State of São Paulo (UNIVESP). Since September 2009, UNIVESP broadcasts the digital channel 2.2 for TV Cultura’s multiprogramming.

Every week, more video lessons will be launched. Subtitles in many languages are available in settings, auto-translate.

First video lesson:

Introduction to Educational Design

Relationship Between Technique, Design, Education, and Knowledge. This video lesson discusses the interdependence of the terms “technical,” “design,” and “technology” for the academic development of e-learning. The focus is on educational design as pedagogical planning and a didactic approach for e-learning through information and communications technology (ICT).

Second video lesson:

Educational and Instructional Design

Advanced technologies demands, continuously, designing new educational strategies to improve teaching and learning processes. This video lesson discusses the transition from classroom learning to e-Learning. It is considered the importance of producing digital didactic materials online through information and communication technologies (ITC)—the process of construction and constant maintenance of teaching and learning in the virtual learning environment (VLE) or managed learning environment (MLE), by including computers and the Internet in the learning process.

Third video lesson:

Distance Learning Technology

This video lesson will present clarification on information technology, computing in education, and a preliminary notion regarding how learning management systems (LMSs) are being increasingly used in e-learning and their theoretical-methodological approach.

Fourth video lesson:

Convergence Between Digital Technologies, Content and Context

The focus is on the potential of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the virtual learning environment (VLE) in relation to its social context. The appropriate pedagogical method needs to be in tune with social changes!

Fifth video lesson:

Audio-Visual Material for Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Transmitted Via Internet

This video lesson discusses the interdisciplinarity between communication, design, technology, theories of perception, and the appropriate pedagogy for distance learning, through the virtual learning environment (VLE).

Sixth video lesson:

Setting Up Digital Media And Virtual Environment

This video lesson discusses and introduces the new paradigm of education, distance learning through a virtual learning environment. The aesthetic structures, through graphic interfaces, which enable a new perception of digital communication with the visual and verbal languages in a network will be understood in their purposes of configuration on the internet, for self-learning in their forms of network collaboration.


Seventh video lesson:

Technological Progress and Digital Mediation

This video lesson is based on empirical and qualitative research that studied active pedagogical methodologies for educational design practice and media configurations. This video lesson shows how important the empirical and theoretical relationship is for educational planning on online platforms, emphasizing the teaching-learning process in building knowledge.

Eighth video lesson:

Project-Based Learning

The media configuration process is complex, and educational design has to establish methods for the execution of such media, meeting the objectives of current teaching methodologies. However, what are the challenges to be overcome? In this video lesson, we will cover problem-based learning or project-based learning and the appropriate methods for media planning according to the ADDIE model—analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation.

Last video lesson:

Synthesis between practice and theory of educational design

Science, technology and the human condition.

This video lesson discusses a revolutionary form of teaching, a new, enduring human condition driven by its investment in knowledge and the evolution of technology and science. Therefore, given the increasing use of technologies, this new human condition is discussed.
