Technology for E-Learning: What You Need

LearnDash

To be a successful e-learning instructor, you need to know your way around technology. Anyone who’s spent any time reading about the e-learning industry knows that online courses and traditional classrooms use very different technological tool kits. Because of this, if most of your teaching/learning experience comes from a traditional classroom environment, you may not be as familiar with some of the technological tools available to you as you launch your online course.

Is Asynchronous E-learning Better or Worse than a Traditional Classroom?

Beyond Campus Innovations

Is Asynchronous E-learning Better or Worse than a Traditional Classroom? A lot has changed since technology took center-stage in our daily lives, and one of the biggest benefactors has been education. In this article, we examine the pros and cons of brick-and-mortar education as compared to the modern, asynchronous, online classroom seen in e-learning. What is Asynchronous Education? An asynchronous education is one that puts the student in the driver seat.

Creating Courses that Foster Innovation

MagicBox

Setting itself apart from the established methods of instruction, e-Learning introduces innovation in education. By encouraging the use of educational technology (EdTech) to disseminate knowledge, it’s pushing innovative courses on an unprecedented scale. Bringing innovative courses in a K-12 setting ensure continuous improvements in learning outcomes of students. Creating innovative e-Learning courses. Leading the way for courses that foster innovation.

Can Higher Education Afford Innovation?

The Learning Circuits

I hear: Educational technology is evolving, and such evolution will be expensive and full of dead ends. Also, would not innovations such as the flipped classroom allow for professor time to be further partitioned into virtual office hours ? I obviously think that using technology to mix synchronous and asynchronous sessions can only help universities by increasing the depth of student engagement.
