Learning outcome actions

Publish a short blog post and share a link to your course web site

(For students working as a team, each member of the team must publish their own blog post).

  1. Choose a suitable title for your blog post
  2. Prepare a blog post with two sections:
    1. My learning reflection
      • Share a brief personal reflection of your experience with publishing your snapshot. For example:
        • The steps you found easy and/or challenging
        • Any advice you would offer learners completing this activity in the future
        • Anything else you would like to share
    2. My snapshot self-assessment
      • Share a self-assessment of your published snapshot (see below), and explain why you awarded yourself green or amber. (Team members should consult with each other to achieve a consensus evaluation.)
  3. Remember to apply the “EDT4OL” tag to your post. (This is needed for harvesting your post in the course feed.)


Conduct a self-assessment of your learning pathway outline, using the traffic light rubric below, to evaluate if your resource achieves a green or amber rating below. If amber, consider improving your resource to achieve a green rating.

If you were working as a member of a team, you should assess the published snapshot you developed together. Consider getting together for a web-conference call to discuss your self-evaluation with members of the team, and invite them to make suggestions for improving the design of the structure of your team’s collective learning pathways.

This is one step towards gaining your Course Developer Badge. This learning challenge will not be formally assessed at this stage by your course facilitator. Your ability to publish a snapshot will be demonstrated in the final version of your published course site, after authoring the learning sequence(s).

    • A logical and functioning navigation of the course site
    • Adequate number of sub-pages in the learning pathway(s) to cover the concept(s) being taught

I need more practice (Novice)
I did not succeed in publishing a working snapshot

Red grade for snapshot blog post challenge: Not Achieved
  • Errors in the text on the ‘Outline page’ mean the snapshot has failed

Prepare for assessment on Moodle

Your Snapshot process blog post will be submitted on Moodle as part of the Authoring a learning sequence challenge later in the course. See the Course developer badge page for instructions for submission.
