Online tools for education l.jpg
Online Tools for Education

Why did we select courses?

  • Specific objectives require an educational context

  • To meet our goals, we must provide the ability for skilled people to work either alone or together, but within a larger community – both online and offline

  • Our focus is more on learning than content


Focus on learning l.jpg
Focus on Learning

Our focus is on the learning experience.

Facilitating online learning requires:

  • Focusing on learners’ expectations, motivations, and engagement preferences

  • Using technology to support learning styles

  • Identifying how technology might inhibit learning and re-designing as appropriate

Focus on Learning

Our focus is on bringing people together through learning (not solely on bringing content to people) and on increasing the interactive aspects of learning. Tools include:

  • Courses with evaluations (individual learning)

  • Discussion boards (peer to peer learning)

  • Live presentations (current and evolving content)

  • Workshops (co-constructed learning experiences)
