In light of Online Learning benefits, more K-12 districts are recognizing online learning programs as an acceptable medium for educating their students. Recent meta studies have found that in some cases online learning may be superior to traditional classroom-based instruction.

‘Need for Speed’ Is Driving the Next Generation of E-learning - Elearning!

‘Need for Speed’ Is Driving the Next Generation of E-learning - Elearning! | SchooL-i-Tecs 101 | Scoop.it
Workers Need Availability of a Learning Environment in Which They Can Find Info, Collaborate and Build Their Own learning Plans.

 

The “need for speed” in most of today’s training organizations is accelerating due to several other disruptive trends that are driving the $12 billion e-learning market. These trends include the evolution of the Internet into a highly interactive, collaborative and social technology that has gone mainstream; the continued rapid growth and widespread adoption of new e-learning technologies, including mobile and virtual classrooms; and the continued evolution of video as a learning tool.

 

As a result, e-learning is taking on a more interactive and social format that provides learners with small pieces of learning content, often created by the learners themselves and other subject-matter experts. This content and knowledge is framed and accessible within the context of the learner’s daily work — anytime, anywhere, synchronously or asynchronously — to create learning as a continuous process, not as an event or in a page-turning format. This next-generation e-learning uses video, video-conferencing, simulations, games, virtual classrooms and digital content libraries. And all of it is tailored to learners’ business-driven goals, their professional goals, their individual learning styles, and their preferred social networks.

Making peer evaluations work in Online Learning

Making peer evaluations work in Online Learning | SchooL-i-Tecs 101 | Scoop.it

Many educators appear to agree with the ‘peer evaluation’ or ‘peer assessment’ concept for group work. Peer assessment allows the group members to provide a score or some kind of measurement on team members levels of participation and contributions. Rather than assessing whether the student learned from the assignment or not, this method seems geared to identifying any ‘slackers’ or those who sit on the side lines through the entire project, with minimal contributions.

 

This is the final post in a 3 part series on group work in online learning communities...
