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 (C) connect to their prior knowledge and (A) apply new knowledge through personalized active learning and authentic assessments. Students (R) 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.
