    • What is eLearning 2.0?
    • eLearning 2.0 is based on Web 2.0 and emerging trends in eLearning. It can include such features as e-Learning where students create content , collaborate with peers to form a learning network with distribution of content creation and responsibilities, e-Learning that takes advantage of many sources of content aggregated together into learning experiences and e-Learning that utilizes various tools including online references, courseware, knowledge management, collaboration and search.

    • What is eLearning 2.0?
    • “ In the future it will be more widely recognized that the learning comes not from the design of learning content but in how it is used . Most e-learning theorists are already there, and are exploring how learning content-whether professionally authored or created by students— can be used as the basis for learning activities rather than the conduit for learning content.“

    • The start page’s limitations:
      • The evaluation process is limited – data gathering, tracking and evaluation
      • The coach could be another learner or a group of learners
      • There are no Learner Records
      • Several flows are missing: interaction context, learner info, catalog info
  • 68.
    • Start pages
      • Possess flexible functions for configuring the existing components in a learning environment
      • Can be extended with new created components
      • Can support the self-organized learners in two aspects:
        • learning – learn to exploit the Learning 2.0 advantages , learn to work with Web 2.0 technologies
        • research - exploring the riches and functionality of an environment in order to build effective prototypes
  • 69.
    • Start pages are suitable for building multichannel learning environments, where learning and knowledge capturing can be provided
    • The start pages Netvibes, Pageflakes and Protopage show the rich possibilities for self-organized learning environments with tools for:
      • Authoring
      • Syndicating information
      • Communication
      • Collaboration and networking
      • Researching
      • Evaluation

    • Analysis shows:
      • Start pages are suitable for easy and fast unfolding of learning and research environment
      • The information and knowledge can be gathered via many channels for: authoring, syndicated information, communication, collaboration and networking, research, and evaluation
  • 97.
    • Self-organized learner has to cope with two main tasks:
      • study technology and functionality of a start page
      • design technology-rich environment and learning with social orientation
  • 98.
    • Web 2.0 technologies impact on learning design:
      • Different learner’s roles
      • Multichannel environments
      • A broad set of activities
      • Different scenarios
