Next generation of e-Learning: 3 U-Learning Next phase of e-Learning development 5A Learning (anyone, anywhere, anytime, any device, any learning resource) Key features Ubiquitous Informal Situated Social Context-aware Distributed cognition
Progresses of Learning Resource Sharing Technologies 3
Deficiencies of Current Learning Technologies 3 Born in Web1.0 era Only supports one-way information communication More focus on formal learning, less on informal learning
Deficiencies of Current Learning Technologies 3 Emphasize learning resources and activities sharing in a close structure Ignores the continuous updating of learning resources Ignores dynamic and generative connection of learning resources Ignores building up dynamic relationships between learners and teachers with learning resources
Proposal of Learning Cell Year 2008 Prof. Yu Shenqquan Propose Learning CellThe organizational model and key technologies of u-Learning resource
What is Learning Cell？ 1 A new kind of learning resource designed for u-Learning Make a big improvement of Learning Object Supports sharing of the valuable generative information Supports sharing of social cognitive network Can realize self-evolution Keep a small granularity and more intelligent
