  • To date – when we think of collaboration, we think of using social, platform based tools. Wiki’s, Blog’s, Twitter etc…… but what if we could bring it all round to the beginning again, remembering the way we worked with our fellow classmates in school, but now we are able to also include the latest technology to make eLearning collaborativeFirstly, let’s take a look at what we consider are some of the positives of collaborative learning1. Develops higher level thinking skills4. Builds self esteem in students9. Promotes positive race relations14. Involves students in developing curriculum and class procedures22. Encourages alternate student assessment techniques25. Students are taught how to criticize ideas, not people34. Classroom anxiety is significantly reduced
  • Lack of Control– Learners with low motivation tend to fall behind when using eLearning as there are no set times to be doing it and they are responsible for the organisation themselves. A lack of routine or fixed schedule can mean eLearning becomes complicated with various deadlines often given to different people at different stages of their learning.Isolated – A lot of questions are a lot easily answered when face to face with someone when you can guarantee an instant answer. eLearning often doesn’t allow that with trainers often having to answer numerous questions all of the time and only doing it within working hours – where a lot of learners may prefer to do their learning out of working hours. This feeling of isolation can often demotivate individuals as they feel they don’t have the support and reassurance that the physical presence of a trainer provides.Learning Approach – It doesn’t appeal to all learning styles so some learners will not enjoy the experience – especially strong activists and pragmatists.  It is still a challenge to make eLearning appeal fully to these groups as different people learn better or worse using different styles. Some may prefer images, some prefer just reading words and some prefer to talk about or actually do a task in order to learn.
