Online Learning - What do we actually mean?

Online Learning - What do we actually mean? | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Slidedocs - spread ideas with effective visual documents | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Slidedocs help you spread your smart thinking by combining visual communications with short chunks of written copy. Their scannable nature makes them great pre-read, reference, and leave-behind materials. Their modularity makes it easy for people to incorporate your ideas into their own communications. And these features together make slidedocs the perfect companion to both written documents and presentations.

What Students Love about e-Learning Courses

What Students Love about e-Learning Courses | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it
Since a continually increasing number of students are turning to online education, there are numerous courses available on the internet. Designing a basic online course may be difficult and is no different than working on an eLearning course. If you wish to design an effective e-learning program, that’ll make the transition from classroom to e-learning as pleasant as possible for the students, then that is a different story. It requires a good deal of time, planning, and hard work.
