About this session:
With the arrival of 4G fast mobile access our aspirations for a continuous online world become a reality. Learning is no longer static but an ecosystem that changes with the people living it and the organisations needing it.
Under the theme 'Thriving in Uncertainty' Charles Gould will share how we can design intelligently and sustainably in this evolving network.
Illustrated with contemporary examples in learning and other media, Charles will look at how we utilise learning analytics, user generated and curated content, social media, and virtual classrooms to make learning not just online but personal, relevant and dynamic.
I think that one of the problems is the way we use e-learning. It’s hardwired: frozen in time the minute it gets deployed onto an LMS. It might as well be a book or a CD. Yes, we can track usage but are we really taking advantage of it being online?
