28 Days of OLLIE: Day 27

Much of the 28 Days of OLLIE is what we consider informal or non-credit bearing learning opportunities. The value in this type of learning is that it is truly about getting the learning to you when you need it. For example, you can post a question to the community the minute it comes to you and hopefully get a suggested answers from others in a timely manner.

Today's focus is on formalizing your learning. In other words engaging in online courses that are lead by an instructor, have official starts and end dates, facilitated discussions, collaborative activities, and assessments. The benefit of this more formal type of learning is that it offers the learners the opportunity to dig deep into meaningful topics. In addition, they are also offered for credit (renewal and graduate).
