Social e-learning- Planning, deploying and maintaining interaction based on line courses.

E-learning uses electronic tools to enable users to participate in a learning process. Broadly defined e-learning covers a spectrum of tools and outcomes. This spectrum can range from a solitary learner participating in an interactive lesson to a group of learners participating together in an on line course. These opposite ends of the spectrum can be labeled solitary and social e-learning.

Our current focus is on social e-learning. What does it take to plan, deploy and maintain an interaction based on line course? What are the advantages and draw backs to using this approach and how can we develop the tools and framework to support social e-learning in Extension?

As we discuss social e-learning we will be looking at some of the tools available and how to effectively use these tools to engage learners on line. Then we’ll explore 2 hybrid e-learning scenarios. The first will address the use of on line tools combined with face to face interaction. The second will explore an area we are calling “active e-learning”. Active e-learning combines on line tools, social interaction and hands on learning activities to actively engage learners across a spectrum of learning styles.
