  4. Technical Information,cont <ul><li>If you are new to online learning, you may be wondering what technical knowledge you will need to be successful. </li></ul><ul><li>To take advantage of this type of learning on our website, you will need: </li></ul><ul><li>access to a computer -- either at home, at a library, or at a school -- that is connected to the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>some experience using a computer. You do not need a lot of knowledge about specific computer applications, but you will find it helpful to be able to use a mouse, send and receive email, and get to a site on the Internet. </li></ul>Course Objectives Resources Communicate LCNV Home next back
  5. Strategies for Online Learning <ul><li>Though education is increasingly influenced by technology and interactive media, most children still learn material based on presentations a teacher gives in a classroom. Their understanding & retention for children are still measured by tests. </li></ul><ul><li>But we’re adults with limited and varied availability, so it’s more sensible to have tools we can access on our own when we want. We like to build on the experiences and interests we already have; and we do it because we like to, not because we have to. Overall, we frequently want to have more input on the material we learn. </li></ul><ul><li>New technology and internet resources have made the remote learning experience much more accessible. We can learn remotely anywhere there is internet access and even store and share documents remotely. Degree programs, certificates and professional development are increasingly available.

  6. Successful online learners [ 2 ] <ul><li>Are open to new learning experiences </li></ul><ul><li>Want to take responsibility for their own learning </li></ul><ul><li>Are able to bring their knowledge and skills to learning situations </li></ul><ul><li>Want to take advantage of anytime, anywhere learning opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Like to apply newly acquired skills </li></ul><ul><li>Like the chance to practice new skills in a non-threatening environment </li></ul><ul><li>Can manage time to fit learning into their schedule </li></ul>Course Objectives Resources Communicate LCNV Home next back
  7. Asynchronous Communication and Learning <ul><li>Classes, telephone calls, meetings, and all other real-time exchanges are considered direct or synchronous communication. [ 3 ] LCNV’s online training are the opposite. We use asynchronous communication meaning it does not require that all parties involved in the communication need to be present and available at the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>Asynchronous learning  is a student-centered teaching method that uses online learning resources to facilitate information sharing outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people [ 4 ] . </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of this include e-mail (the receiver does not have to be logged on when the sender sends the e-mail message), discussion boards, which allow conversations to evolve and community to develop over a period of time, and text messaging over cell phones. </li></ul><ul><li>LCNV online coursework may use email, discussion boards, other social media and links to other web sites. </li></ul>Course Objectives Resources Communicate LCNV Home next back
  8. Netiquette [ 5 ] <ul><li>Communicating on the Internet requires using some informal rules about Internet communication that are known as  “netiquette.”  These are generally accepted guidelines for appropriate communication in e-mail, on discussion boards, in chat rooms, and during any other online communication. Check out the basics of Netiquette on the  Netiquette Homepage   to learn basic network etiquette. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to understanding basic netiquette, it is important to know that experienced Internet users have developed additional symbols and codes to help communicate online. Internet users have developed  emoticons  to help convey meaning that would normally be conveyed through tone of voice, body language, or facial expressions. The  emoticons   link will introduce you to some commonly used emoticons. </li></ul>Course Objectives Resources Communicate LCNV Home next back
