This course sets out to provide an understanding of theories of learning and development and how these theories relate to educational technology. It has two components. The first is theoretical, in which we attempt to develop an overall frame of reference, locating approaches to the psychology of learning in terms of large paradigm shifts, from ‘behaviorism’ to ‘brain developmentalism’ to ‘social cognitivism’. The second component is practical, in which we will use these theoretical concepts to ‘parse’ a technology-mediated learning environment for its underlying presuppositions. -------------------------------- Recommended Background -------------------------------- This course is designed for people interested in the future of education and the "learning society," including people who may wish to join education as a profession, practicing teachers interested in exploring future directions for a vocation that is currently undergoing transformation, and community and workplace leaders who regard their mission to be in part "educative." -------------------------------- Related Resources -------------------------------- This course is based on the following book: Additional online resources are available here: -------------------------------- Take this Course for Credit at the University of Illinois -------------------------------- This course has the same content and anticipates the same level of contribution by students in the New Learning course offered to graduate certificate, masters, and doctoral level students in the Learning Design and Leadership Program in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. Of course, in the nature of MOOCs many people will just want to view the videos and casually join some of the discussions. Some people say that these limited kinds of participation offer evidence that MOOCs suffer from low retention rates. Far from it – we say that any level of engagement is good engagement. On the other hand, if you would like to take this course for credit at the University of Illinois, you will find more information about our program here: And you can apply here: -------------------------------- The Learning Design and Leadership Series of MOOCs -------------------------------- This course is one of a series of eight MOOCs created by Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis for the Learning Design and Leadership program at the University of Illinois.

I think it's a great course for people who are interested in Educational Psychology. I recommend it for those who are "beginners" or in other words, who haven't quite studied psychology yet.



Good course, At first, it través for the básica and educational theories which are great, but at week 3 and week 4 lets you know more current issues in the educational field.

I have done different courses on Coursera but this course has worst management as peer assignment is not monitored by anyone in Coursera and people are just putting random assessment which has no like to learning outcome of this course and due to least attendees, you have to access and tolerate circus. My advice would be to attend the courses which have a good number of participants and better grading to attend to the pool of mindful people.

Wonderful course, it proposes the main theories in phychology to explain how learning happens in the human mind, i like the diversity in the sources, teaching methods, and examples from reality in the curren era from different angles.

The part of bullying was really useful and well structured. Thanks to all the instructors.

I found it rather hard to follow the speaker / professors in the course. The slides shown contain very much content and for me that seems not very useful. Furthermore sometimes they seem just to read down the slides... For me there are better learning alternatives as this course was not very appealing.

I​ found most of the information interesting and applicable. On the other hand, the material was non-sequential and felt disjointed. Each section had little to do with the previous and it seemed more like a collection of lectures rather than a well-rounded certificate program to introduce the learner to the title topic. Also, the format for submitting work was confusing and was (unnecessarily) linked to another site that made it complicated in reviewing work. And speaking of grading, too often there were not enough peers to review work. This require that sections could not be completed when the learner wanted to put in the time to do the work. Expect to return to this course outside of anticipated times or be ok with moving on to other sections without assurance of completion. Case in point: I finished all of my submitted work on a Thursday but did not receive my completed certificate until the next Monday. On the other hand, it is a short course and can be completed quicker than other certiciates I've worked on.

The course content is good, but the fact that I am the only current learner (it seems I am alone) make the motivation trully hard. I keep redefining my deadlines so I can accomplish the peer reviewed tasks, and the weeks pass and no one reads it. I am kind of frustrated with this course, since my expectations were high due to the proposition and the quality of the institution.

The format of the assignment is really hard to navigate. Also the way questions are formatted they need better structure.

Dr Kalantzis talks as though she were reading the content on the teleprompter for the first time. A jerky, stuttering delivery that distracts significantly from the content. Unenrolling.

It is too complicated and time consuming. especially the peer reviewed assignments. this course is ok for young students not for academicians. I wish to discontinue the course.
