Transcript of "Research Presentation"

  1. 1. INTEGRATING VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS IN HIGHER EDUCATION
  2. 2. • A virtual classroom is a electronic way for educators to interact with elearning or face-to-face students either via video-conferencing, internet broadcast, or email. • Allowing education institutions to hold synchronous live courses over the web.
  3. 3. • Educators are able to schedule and deliver live online classes, share videos and presentation content. • Virtual Classrooms are incorporated into institutions learning management system (LMS) using any Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)-compliant LMS.
  4. 4. Blackboard collaborate is the leading online collaboration platform built for education, allowing scheduling of online classrooms and sharing of multimedia content.
  5. 5. Wimba classroom is a live, virtual classroom environment with various features that include audio, video, application sharing and content display, and MP4 capabilities. (Lu, 2011)
  6. 6. Wimba classroom & Elluminate was purchased by Blackboard in July of 2013 and will soon be obsolete.
  7. 7. E-learning satisfaction will be influenced by the quality of the e-learning system, multimedia instruction, interactive learning activities, and learners’ self-efficacy. (Liaw, 2008) Videoconferencing is a useful adjunct to traditional educational delivery modes, and can enable quality education opportunities that would be prohibitive due to time, travel, and cost constraints. (Biden, 2005)
  8. 8. The increase of efforts to understand the make-up and needs of the audiences and become acutely aware of the teaching style and the cultural contingency of the theories, models, and pedagogies that are used (Szudlarek, B., McNett, J., Romani, L., & Lane, H., 2013) Adding synchronous components(virtual classroom technologies) to online courses can facilitate interaction. (Martin, F., Parker, M. A., & Deale, D. F., 2012)
  9. 9. Its pedagogical design and ease-of-use ensures that educators and students engage as if they were meeting face-to-face. (Wimba, 2011) Results showed that the blended teaching media and virtual classroom practices had a statistically significant contribution on the achievement of the students in geography and their attitudes towards the geography course compared to the face to face expository method. (Dikmenli, Y., & Unaldi, U., 2013) Results show that the use of the virtual classroom enhance the communication in the online mathematics teaching. (Lu, 2011)
