It also means that the tasks must be able to maintain the students interests and so must include tasks designed to challenge the student’s problem solving abilities, reasoning, evaluation skills and other cognitive abilities.

  • + 33 Three factors that will encourage or show evidence that learners are engaged 1. Being present in “class.” 1. Acknowledging the instructor by way of participating in class discussion between the learner with the instructor or with their peers by doing the activities led by the instructors. 2. Timely completion and submission of assignments and tasks. Enna, 5 Feb, 2012ZW Abas - ICELET 2012 - Tehran February 15, 2012
  • + Three factors that will encourage or show 34 evidence that learners are engaged 1. The learner interacts with the content and discovers concepts and principles to apply. 2. The learner takes responsibility for learning and collaborates with other learners. 1. Learning engagement involves learners in authentic tasks to involve problems solving. Jan Nkosi, 6 Feb 2012ZW Abas - ICELET 2012 - Tehran February 15, 2012

  • + 36 Advantages of Ning over Wikispace, myLMS, PBWorks Using Ning as the platform has a lot advantages in creating a learning environment which is conducive for the learner. 1. Ning rapid response system. Ning’s feature which alerted the student via email when their posts are replied by a member energizes the forum, in a way, students are alerted that a respond has been made to their posts and theyre motivated to respond back. Unlike wikispace and the MyLMS. 2. User-friendly interface. Nings interface is learner friendly and easy to navigate. I dont have to look around for icons or pages I need to access the learning pages etc, unlike PBWorks.ZW Abas - ICELET 2012 - Tehran February 15, 2012
