E-learning viva

A aprendizaxe non ten porque ser unha actividade solitaria, autodidacta. A e-learning viva ten lugar cando un grupo de aprendices se reúnen, en tempo real, con ou sen instructor, para aprender.

Virtual Classroom starter guide

Virtual Classroom starter guide

"You’ve heard the debate for years: classroom verses online. Only a few years ago, instructor-led training required a face-to-face event in which participants traveled to a single classroom facility, and e-learning usually equated to self-study content loaded onto a CD or Website. Enter virtual classrooms. Web collaboration technology permits the best of both delivery options: real-time access to a live instructor or subject matter expert right from the user's PC." Bob Maiden, Learning Circuits, October 2003.

Distance learning and synchronous interaction

Distance learning and synchronous interaction

"Suppose you are a distance instructor who wants to emulate the conventional "best practice" of face-to-face learning by dividing a class into autonomous work groups. You want your distance students to form 4- or 5-person teams whose collaborative, problem-based learning work requires brainstorming, planning, negotiation, problem solving, and document production. What are the best readily available tools to support these activities?" Joel Foreman, the technology source, July/August 2003.

The next generation of live learning

The next generation of live learning

"Today’s online classrooms (referred to by many as “virtual classrooms”) are effective in disseminating training content to a large number of remote learners. Online classrooms deliver live training along with the ability to archive the live training sessions for subsequent on-demand learning. While this modality is effective in conveying information to learners, as witnessed by the explosive growth in online classroom events, there remain gaps in the learning process when it’s conducted with first-generation online classroom capabilities. These deficiencies leave many learners and instructors dissatisfied with the online classroom experience." Sanjay Dalal, Chief Learning Officer Magazine, 1 October 2003.

Designing and delivering live, online training

Designing and delivering live, online training

"So you've decided to try some live, online training. You've bought the product and now you wonder "Where do I begin? How do I design and deliver live, online training when my experience is all in the physical classroom?" Jo-Ann Driscoll, eLearn Magazine, October 2001.

Getting in synch: introducing synchronous technology in your organisation

Getting in synch: introducing synchronous technology in your organisation

Perhaps we're approaching the limit of change--the point at which people throw up their hands and say, "Enough already! Can't I just do my job without learning something new again?" Every day we sift through emails about new technologies and new breakthroughs. How much new technology can we absorb and still be effective?" Chuck Kater, Learning circuits, June 2000.

Implementing live e-learning

Implementing live e-learning

"One of the top benefits of e-learning is that students can learn on demand. But what about students who prefer more traditional scheduled classroom interaction, yet can’t afford to leave the office for days at a time to get the training they need? For this fast-growing student population, the solution lies in synchronous, or live, e-learning. This effective form of e-learning combines the benefits of live, instructor-led training with the flexibility of Web access." Frank Gartland, e-learning magazine, June 2001.

Trends in collaborative learning talk

Trends in collaborative learning talk - Jay Cross's talk at Collaborative Learning 2004 is now available online as a slide presentation with sound. I love the Macromedia Breeze technology which makes this possible and wonder if there's anything similar available that's free or open source. The talk itself is entertaining and a useful introduction to some of the ideas behind online collaborative learning. Some of Jay's more interesting formulations:
