Tools and Technologies for E-Learning

The use of e‑Learning has been grow­ing at a tremen­dous rate, but its stan­dards have yet to be devel­oped or even agreed upon. While e‑Learning is not a solu­tion to all prob­lems, many of the advan­tages of e‑learning indi­cate that it can alle­vi­ate a vari­ety of pres­sures for train­ing and edu­ca­tion. Adult edu­ca­tors should be aware of both the ben­e­fits and the prob­lems asso­ci­at­ed with e‑learning. They should also know how to go about imple­ment­ing an e‑learning pro­gram in an orga­ni­za­tion, is cas­es where the ben­e­fits out­weigh the asso­ci­at­ed prob­lems. This course intro­duces the foun­da­tion­al prin­ci­ples, philoso­phies, mod­els, and deliv­ery modes for imple­ment­ing e‑learning pro­grams. Stu­dents will eval­u­ate e‑learning tech­nolo­gies and stan­dards that under­lie e‑learning in cur­rent prac­tice. They will also gain hands-on expe­ri­ence in cre­at­ing a strat­e­gy for e‑learning that can serve as a guide dur­ing the process of devel­op­ing and deliv­er­ing e‑learning. Pre­req­ui­site: EXCACE 5995.
