As the first step in designing the final course project , the student will create a brief lesson plan/outline that will include the following elements:
1. an overview of the lesson, including its topic and goal
2. a description of the audience for which the lesson is intended
3. one or two learning objectives, stated in behavioral terms
4. a list/description of the media you propose to include in the lesson and your rationale for selecting them
5. a list of activities (that is, what the student will “do” to complete the lesson) that includes a minute-by-minute timeline
6. an assessment plan (that is, how will you “test” the student to ensure he or she understands the content of the lesson) that relates to your objective(s)
7. an evaluation plan (that is, how you will allow the student to provide feedback to you about the lesson).
Web-based Lesson about Distance Education
Based on the lesson plan, prepare a brief (10-15 minutes) single-concept Web-based lesson about an aspect of distance education. The subject of the lesson may be almost anything related to distance education.
Remember, this is a very brief lesson: think of it as a single-objective lesson, a mini-lesson, or a micro-lesson.

I work with communications for my department and I don’t really get the opportunity to create any of the web-based lessons, but I mainly assist in graphically enhancing presentations. This assignment was a lot of fun for me because it gave me the opportunity to create a mini lesson from beginning to the end. I started out with a lesson plan that really helped guide me on how I wanted my lesson to look like and what learning objectives I wanted it to include. I also had to include a time line to an assessment that ensured me the learner understood the content. In creating my lesson I learned more about twitter and what it takes to create a web based lesson.
