It’s Not eLearning On A Phone: The eLearning Coach

It’s Not eLearning On A Phone: The eLearning Coach | online tutoring | Scoop.it

"The only way we can understand something new is to create an analogy from something we know. So it makes sense that most of us think of mobile learning as eLearning on a portable device. That description, however, barely scratches the surface.
Mobile is a strategy more than a technology. And its potential use is far greater than what mobile learning can offer.
If you’re finding performance gaps, process inefficiencies, ineffective systems, poor productivity and all the other things that make you want to tear your hair out, perhaps you should introduce a mobile strategy to your organization..."

Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative

Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative | online tutoring | Scoop.it
Overview
Many theorists predict that online education will gradually surpass traditional classrooms in the role of educating students in higher education....

 

The growing trend toward online education is self-evident through the increasing popularity of online universities such as University of Phoenix, Kaplan University, Strayer University and many others. Economic trends have forced more and more disenfranchised individuals out of the workforce and into a situation of needing to achieve a higher education to improve their chances for employability; many of the students in these online colleges and universities are students over 25, with families, and some with full- or part-time jobs.
