  • Technology Today By Brissa Ramos
  • Welcome Everyone! Welcome all classmates! What we will cover: What are the most common synchronous and asynchronous eLearning tools The effectiveness of eLearning tools Experience with eLearning tools Web 2.0 in eLearning Incorporating Web 2.0 into Final Project
  • What are the most common synchronous and asynchronous eLearning tools? Some of the most common synchronous eLearning tools that are used in today’s society are chat, instant messaging, Video conferencing like Skype, Audio conference, and Web 2.0. There are also asynchronous eLearning tools like Email, Text messaging, Wiki, Blog, Podcast, Web 2.0.
  • Most of these tools are very effective for meeting their eLearning goals, especially if you have a dedicated learner. Chat and instant messaging can be very effective for some when there’s a critical need to obtain an answer to a question that needs immediate attention. However, some might find it distracting because of its pop up capability and because of its misusage. Video conferencing can also be very effective as you are able to connect with the learners visually, however some might find it challenging because you are restricted on the activities that you can actually conduct on a video conference with your audience.
  • Asynchronous learning makes it for a lot of individuals to continue their education through their busy lives. Email helps us stay in communication with others all over the world in a matter of seconds. Wiki and Blogs help us collaborate on work and opinions with people all throughout the country as well no matter what time zone someone might reside in. Podcast, allows students to listen to lectures at convenient times that are set by their own schedule, not by someone else’s demand.
  • Online learning has done tremendous things for me as an instructional designer. Also, my experience as a student with these tools has been pretty positive. Online learning has made it possible for me to continue my studies, continue to grow in my career and be a full time mom and house maker. There are a few downsides to asynchronous study, like obtaining feedback from your professor right away or getting answer to your questions on the spot but otherwise it’s been great.
  • There are a few downsides to asynchronous study, like obtaining feedback from your professor right away or getting answer to your questions on the spot but otherwise it’s been great.
  • Common uses are Google, wikis like Wikipedia, and Yahoo! These tools can be are user friendly and can provide information to the learner in a matter of seconds. Although, the information is fast, it doesn’t necessarily means it’s good, therefore the learner must be cautious of the content that can be found when using these powerful tools.
  • For my final project, I would like to have an interactive presentation that’s composed of an interactive portfolio put together through Adobe. Web 2.0 technologies could be incorporated by maybe creating it through a wiki, Scorm Cloud, or Voice Thread presentation.
