I learnt that there are … Continue reading The big questions: what have I learnt and how should I develop eLearning activities? →

This is an interesting method, however my reflection here is that possibly, the students that are virtually present have a disadvantage and therefore, such a method should … Continue reading Blended participation →
In order to design a successful blended or online course we need a framework. This framework integrates numerous elements and there are many decisions that we need to make. One important element is to have a balance between synchronous and asynchronous activities. It has been suggested that more complex issues need reflection and asynchronous activities, … Continue reading Synchronous and asynchronous activities →
Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) has two important characteristics: the digital part and the collaborative part. I need to emphasize that I believe that CSLC is the future of education as the digital space and tools combine synchronous and asynchronous learning methods that in combination enhance learning, and further, they make the impossible possible, that is … Continue reading Online collaborative learning. The future of education or just another source of frustration? →
