Symposium on Hybrid Learning (SHL) focuses on the sharingtheoretical and empirical papers on eLearning as a supplementary learning tool to classroom learning. The era of eLearning enables student learning anytime and anywhere through the Internet. It can reduce teachers’ administrative work to a minimum by computerizing clerical work. It can also personalize each student’s needs through adaptive learning, but traditional classroom learning is needed for face-to-face lecturing and tutoring. Above all, experimental work must be supervised and monitored for its progress. As a result, it is important to combine the benefits of both eLearning and classroom learning into an enhanced teaching method, namely hybrid learning. Students can then be motivated to learn both in breadth by getting important referenced course materials and practice online, and also in depth by detailed discussion with the lecturers in the face-to-face classroom. The issue is how to create a curriculum that can fit students’ personal needs. Education theory, peer-to-peer learning, and web-based technologies should be applied together in defining techniques and guidelines for the creation of the eLearning contents and blended curricula.
Hybrid learning is a unique applied-research-oriented journal in Education. It combines eLearning of using Internet computing with traditional classroom face-to-face personalized learning. The technological side involves Internet computing technology and infrastructure, system development issues, database technology, intelligent systems and new paradigms such as mobile agents and multi-agent systems. On the educational side, there are learning theory and instructional design issues coupled with the design and delivery of learning adjuncts such as animations, simulations, interactive learning modules and assessment instruments, among others.
As Part of
Information and Communication Technologies 2007
On the educational side, hybrid learning provides educators with the opportunity to showcase best practice by reporting the match between learning or outcome objectives and the development and implementation of hybrid learning strategies and material to engage students in achieving those objectives. Ideally underpinned by learning theory, the papers presented should also attempt to demonstrate the value added to learning by using the blended approach. Both components of hybrid learning — the classroom and the eLearning contributions — should be presented in a paper.
