Ecología del Aprendizaje Virtual a course offered by Coursera

This course introduces innovative approaches to learning and teaching, with a focus on the use of e-learning and social web technologies.

For more than 3 decades we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many sites and many ways education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education.
This course explores 7 affordances of e-learning ecologies, which open up genuine possibilities for what we call New Learning—transformative, 21st century learning:
Ubiquitous Learning
Active Knowledge Making
Multimodal Meaning
Recursive Feedback
Collaborative Intelligence
Metacognition
Differentiated Learning

These affordances, if recognized and harnessed, will prepare learners for success in a world that is increasingly dominated by digital information flows and tools for communication in the workplace, public spaces, and personal life. This course offers a wide variety of examples of learning technologies and technology implementations that, to varying degrees, demonstrate these affordances in action.

Studying online can be a very solitary process and it’s this feeling of isolation that is most often attributed to the high rate of student drop-outs in online courses. As an online teacher, this makes quickly building a good relationship with your students all the more vital.
