    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel1
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel2• E-learning includes all forms ofelectronically supported learning andteaching: both out-of-classroom and in-classroom educational experiences viatechnology.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel3E-learning is the computer and network-enabled transfer of skills and knowledge• Content is delivered via the Internet,intranet/extranet, audio or video tape,satellite TV, and CD-ROM.• It can be self-paced or instructor-led andincludes media in the form of text, image,animation, streaming video and audio.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel4
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel5• In the early 1960s, Stanford University psychologyprofessors Patrick Suppes and Richard C.Atkinson experimented with using computers toteach math and reading to young children.• In 1963, Bernard Luskin installed the firstcomputer in a community college for instruction,working with Stanford and others, developedcomputer assisted instruction.• Luskin completed his landmark UCLA dissertationworking with the Rand Corporation in analyzingobstatcles to computer assisted instruction in 1970.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel6• Early e-learning systems, based on Computer-Based Learning/Training often attempted toreplicate autocratic teaching styles wherebythe role of the e-learning system wasassumed to be for transferring knowledge, asopposed to systems developed later basedon Computer Supported CollaborativeLearning (CSCL), which encouraged theshared development of knowledge.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel7• As early as 1993, William D. Graziadeidescribed an online computer-deliveredlecture, tutorial and assessment project usingelectronic mail.• By 1994, the first online high school had beenfounded.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel8• In 1997 Graziadei, W.D., et al., published anarticle entitled "Building Asynchronous andSynchronous Teaching-Learning Environments:Exploring a Course/Classroom ManagementSystem Solution". They described a process atthe State University of New York (SUNY) ofevaluating products and developing an overallstrategy for technology-based coursedevelopment and management in teaching-learning.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel9• Today many technologies can be, and are,used in e-learning, from blogs tocollaborative software, ePortfolios,and virtual classrooms.• Most eLearning situations use combinationsof these techniques.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel10• The British Open University, and the onlinedistance courses at the University of BritishColumbia began a revolution of using theInternet to deliver learning, making heavyuse of online discussion between students inall their programs.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel11
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel12• E-Learning 2.0 is a type of CSCL system thatcame about during the emergence of Web2.0 From an E-Learning 2.0 perspective,conventional e-learning systems were basedon instructional packets, which weredelivered to students using assignments.Assignments were evaluated by the teacher.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel13• In contrast, the new e-learning placesincreased emphasis on social learning anduse of social software such as blogs, wikis,podcasts and virtual worlds such as SecondLife. This phenomenon has also been referredto as Long Tail Learning
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel14• E-Learning 2.0, by contrast to e-learningsystems not based on CSCL, assumes thatknowledge (as meaning and understanding)is socially constructed. Learning takes placethrough conversations about contentand grounded interaction about problemsand actions. Advocates of social learningclaim that one of the best ways to learnsomething is to teach it to others.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel15• In addition to virtual classroomenvironments, social networks have becomean important part of E-learning 2.0. Socialnetworks have been used to foster onlinelearning communities around subjects asdiverse as test preparation and languageeducation.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel16• Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) isthe use of handheld computers or cellphones to assist in language learning. Somefeel, however, that schools have not caughtup with the social networking trends. Fewtraditional educators promote socialnetworking unless they are communicatingwith their own colleagues.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel17
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel18• E-learning services have evolved sincecomputers were first used in education.• There is a trend to move towards blendedlearning services, where computer-basedactivities are integrated with practical orclassroom-based situations.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel19• Different types or forms of e-learning can beconsidered as a continuum:1. No e-learning, no use of computers and/orthe Internet for teaching and learning2. Classroom aids, such as making classroomlecture Powerpoint slides available tostudents through a course web site orlearning management system.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel203. Laptop programs, where students arerequired to bring laptops to class and usethem as part of a face-to-face class4. Hybrid learning, where classroom time isreduced but not eliminated, with more timedevoted to online learning5. Fully online learning, which is a form ofdistance education.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel21
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel22• A learning management system (LMS) issoftware used for delivering, tracking andmanaging training/education. LMSs rangefrom systems for managingtraining/educational records to software fordistributing courses over the Internet andoffering features for online collaboration.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel23• An LMS allows for teachers and administratorsto track attendance, time on task, and studentprogress. LMS also allows for not only teachersand administrators to track these variables butparents and students as well. Parents can log onto the LMS to track grades. Students log on tothe LMS to submit homework and to access thecourse syllabus and lessons.• Two popular tools for E-learning are BlackboardInc. and Moodle.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel24• Blackboard Inc. has over 20 million users daily.Offering six different platforms: BlackboardLearn, Blackboard Collaborate, BlackboardMobile, Blackboard Connect, BlackboardTransact, and Blackboard Analytics; Blackboardstools allow educators to decide whether theirprogram will be blended or fully online,asynchronous or synchronous. Blackboard canbe used for K-12 education, Higher Education,Business, and Government collaboration.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel25• Moodle is an Open Source CourseManagement System. It is free to downloadand provides blended learning opportunitiesas well as platforms for distancelearning courses. The Moodle website hasmany tutorials for creating a program orbecoming a Moodle student.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel26
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel27• The Internet is a medium for teachers to findauthentic and infinite resource files of texts,visual stimuli, listening materials, vocabulary,cultural information, video files, live TV andradios, newspapers from around the world.• The Internet also allows for contextualizedreal time communication via voice-chat, chat,e-mails and forums.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel28• Browsing the Internet creates variousopportunities for learners to take control oftheir own learning, especially in foreignlanguage learning classes, learners can benefitfrom– the authentic content,– vocabulary and various language practiceopportunities while filling forms for registration,– searching for e-mail pals and posting questions toexperts,
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel29– writing reviews for movies, books and etc. onvarious blogs and websites,– looking for perfect holiday places,– sharing their own views and learning about theviews of others,– preparing Web-based Projects in collaboration,– finding images relating the classroom topics;these in return enable contextual practice andreal time discourse instances to be mastered.
    • Technology and Language Learning, Dr. Abdel-Fattah Adel30• The Internet provides language learners withthe opportunity to create their own materialsand share these with public in collaborativecontexts as well as real life, Scenario-basedand Problem-based learning environments.
