Slide 1: E-learning - what is it?

  • Publishing compendia and exercises on web-pages (WEB 1.0) is not e-learning. It’s simply an effective tool to help do things the old way.
  • E-learning is using computer tools to encourage the student to actively participate in the learning process, e.g. by discussion forums, blogs, simulations, etc. (WEB 2.0).
  • E-learning is also packages which present a certain topic (text, graphs, video, animation), with e.g. self-check questions and exercises to help the student to verify that the subject is understood.
  • New ways of distribution information, like podcasts, are sometimes also regarded as e-learning – but is it really?

Slide 2: Wikis

  • A database in which all sorts of teaching aids can be included in a systematic way.
  • Active student participation can be implemented, e.g. by including reports and results from student projects.
  • Two way communication with students (WEB 2.0) can be included – if wanted. I.e. can be used as a tool to create E-learning.

Slide 3: The Ultimate Text Boox?

  • For most courses it is difficult to find the “ideal course book”.
  • Based on a wiki database, a virtual course book can be created which only contains what is needed/wanted.
  • If something is not found in the database the teacher can add it (as traditionally done by writing a compendium to cover what is not in the course book).
    • To the student it will look as an integrated part of the (wiki) course book.
    • Teachers in other courses, universities or whatever will immediately benefit from the newly added material and can include it in their own courses.

Slide 4: The Ultimate Text Boox? (II)

  • Unlike a printed course book,
    • the wiki can be updated in “real time”.
    • can include discussion forums, blogs, video, laboratory exercises (suited to the available labs at a given institution), simulations and any form of e-learning tool available.
    • will serve as a highly integrated and structured learning platform (if set up right!).
    • It is free.
    • results from student work, previous and current, can be integrated.
