Hoffman & Ritchie’s (1998) I CARE model helps facilitators think about the way they design their online courses and interact with learners. The five-step model affords organization to a dynamic online environment, which is helpful for novice and seasoned online instructors and learners. The I CARE model is customized with constructivist approaches and integrated with contemporary social learning technologies in a weekly class agenda format. The instructor (I) introduces the content with a video and sets the context for the lesson. Learners © connect to their prior knowledge and (A) apply new knowledge through personalized active learning and authentic assessments. Students ® reflect on the lesson topic. Learning is (E) extended through an evaluation of the experience or through a guided micro-blog activity. Theories, examples, and options for customization are discussed.
