Now that you have reviewed how to use the USD Copley Library, begin researching a learning design technology topic that you are interested in. Here are some ideas to get you started, but feel free to choose a different topic you'd like to explore: 

  • Mobile Learning in Education or Training
  • Designing eLearning/E-Learning for Education or Training
  • Virtual or Augmented Reality in Education or Training
  • Self-Directed Learning in Education or Training

Write a brief paper (approx 300 words) that describes how your knowledge or experience on the topic relates to the articles you found. If you don't have prior knowledge or experience on the topic, describe how you think the topic would be applied in a practical context and what you learned from your research.

Most of the assignments in your program will be graded using a rubric. A rubric is a scoring guide used to evaluate the quality of your work. Be sure to review the rubric before you submit any assignment to ensure you are meeting the assignment requirements.
