E-learning and Web 2.0 tools

E-learning

  • a generic expression for all learning involving the use of digital technologies to support both learning and teaching
  • the term may refer to the use of various technologies and tools to support learning in different contexts, including face-to-face settings and distance learning, separately or in combination

 

Blended learning

  • combines face-to-face classroom teaching and the innovative use of digital technologies

 

Online learning

  • a form of educational delivery in which learning takes place primarily via the Internet
  • it can serve those who are geographically distant and without access to traditional classroom education, so it includes “distance learning”
  • distance learners are not alone in benefiting from online learning, which is also commonly part of e-learning in mainly campus-based study programmes (in such cases, it may be referred to as blended learning)

 

MOOC

  • it stands for “massive open online course”:
    • massive, since there is generally no participation limit, so thousands can enrol for the same course;
    • open, as courses may be accessed free of charge by many different kinds of learners who normally register with their provider without having to satisfy any formal entry requirements;
    • online because the whole course, including its assessment and additional services, is delivered online (even though personal contact with tutors or other participants is possible).
    • www.coursera.org

Web 1.0, Web 2.0, Web 3.0

  • Web 1.0

    • read-only web
    • content driven
    • the user has no way to increase their involvement or interact with the interface
  • Web 2.0

    • allows for user interaction and participation by having a user-friendly interface where one can edit and publish the existing information
  • Web 3.0

    • computers will be generating raw data on their own
    • Web 3.0 will be the next logical step in the evolution of the Internet

Web 2.0 tools

  • blogs

    • originally it was called as a web log, next it changed into we blog
    • is a discussion or informational website published on the Internet consisting of often informal diary-style text entries („posts“).
    • Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.
    • find some websites that allow you to establish your own blog! (They can be slovak or english ones.)
  • wikis

    • not only wikipedia!
    • wiki wiki – quick in hawaiian
    • a wiki allows anyone to edit, delete or modify content that has been placed on the Web site using only a browser, including the work of previous authors.
