The neologism "e-learning 1. Assessments are easily scored and recorded via online software, providing immediate end-user feedback and completion status.
Known as "eTwinning", computer-supported collaborative learning CSCL allows learners in one school to communicate with learners in another that they would not get to know otherwise,   enhancing educational outcomes  and cultural integration.
An illustrative discussion and example can be found in the s deployment of constructivist cognitive learning in computer literacy, which involved programming as an instrument of learning.
Instructional content is delivered outside of the classroom, often online. Asynchronous learning is beneficial for students who have health problems or who have child care responsibilities.
Behaviorism[ edit ] This theoretical framework was developed in the early 20th century based on animal learning experiments by Ivan PavlovEdward ThorndikeEdward C. Computer-based training is conceptually similar to web-based training WBT which are delivered via Internet using a web browser.
Combinations of these techniques include blogscollaborative softwareePortfoliosand virtual classrooms. Teaching in behaviorism has been linked to training, emphasizing the animal learning experiments. For this reason, CBT is often used to teach static processes, such as using software or completing mathematical equations.
Skinner wrote extensively on improvements of teaching based on his functional analysis of verbal behavior   and wrote "The Technology of Teaching",   an attempt to dispel the myths underlying contemporary education as well as promote his system he called programmed instruction. Classroom microphones, often wireless, can enable learners and educators to interact more clearly.
Computer-supported collaborative learning Computer-supported collaborative learning CSCL uses instructional methods designed to encourage or require students to work together on learning tasks, allowing social learning.
CBTs can be a good alternative to printed learning materials since rich media, including videos or animations, can be embedded to enhance the learning. Since students are working collaboratively, synchronized learning helps students become more open minded because they have to actively listen and learn from their peers.
At the professional educational level, training may include virtual operating rooms. Games also usually come with a sense of progression, which can help keep students motivated and consistent while trying to improve. Social media in education Group webpages, blogswikisand Twitter allow learners and educators to post thoughts, ideas, and comments on a website in an interactive learning environment.
Further, many researchers distinguish between collaborative and cooperative approaches to group learning. Today researchers are concentrating on topics like cognitive loadinformation processing and media psychology.
Since behaviorism consists of the view of teaching people how to do something with rewards and punishments, it is related to training people.
Telecommuting can connect with speakers and other experts. Computers and tablets enable learners and educators to access websites as well as programs such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, PDF files, and images.
Students have access to an incredible variety of enrichment courses in online learning, and can participate in college courses, internships, sports, or work and still graduate with their class. Help, CBTs pose some learning challenges. This collaborative learning differs from instruction in which the instructor is the principal source of knowledge and skills.
Many mobile devices support m-learning.
Hulland B. This frees up classroom time for teachers to more actively engage with learners. Under this framework the role of the teacher becomes that of a facilitator, providing guidance so that learners can construct their own knowledge. For example, Roschelle and Teasley argue that "cooperation is accomplished by the division of labour among participants, as an activity where each person is responsible for a portion of the problem solving", in contrast with collaboration that involves the "mutual engagement of participants in a coordinated effort to solve the problem together.
CBTs provide learning stimulus beyond traditional learning methodology from textbook, manual, or classroom-based instruction. Many app developers and education experts have been exploring smartphone and tablet apps as a medium for collaborative learning.
Many psychologists used these results to develop theories of human learning, but modern educators generally see behaviorism as one aspect of a holistic synthesis.
Instructional design The extent to which e-learning assists or replaces other learning and teaching approaches is variable, ranging on a continuum from none to fully online distance learning. The lack of human interaction can limit both the type of content that can be presented and the type of assessment that can be performed, and may need supplementation with online discussion or other interactive elements.
Assessing learning in a CBT is often by assessments that can be easily scored by a computer such as multiple choice questions, drag-and-drop, radio button, simulation or other interactive means. CSCL is similar in concept to the terminology, "e-learning 2.Educational technology is "the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources".
Educational technology is the use of both physical hardware and educational theoretics. It encompasses several domains including learning theory.
