E learning presentation

  1. 1. Powerpoint Templates E-Learning Review by Robin Whelan
  2. 2. E-Learning Environments <ul><li>The two learning management system’s (LMS) I have chosen to critique are Blackboard and Moodle. </li></ul><ul><li>Blackboard – </li></ul><ul><li>US based company that provides LMS software to schools and higher education facilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Six different platforms comprising of – Learn, Transact, Connect, Mobile, Collaborative and Analytics. </li></ul>
  3. 3. E-Learning Environments cont... <ul><li>Moodle – </li></ul><ul><li>Open source providing a cost effective solution for education bodies. </li></ul><ul><li>The services it provides include e-Learning launching and tracking, discussion forums, supports classroom courses and an online support centre. </li></ul><ul><li>To list some advantages – </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>robust and scalable, fully customisable and its ease of use. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Uploading of word documents, PDF’s, audio, video and web links. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. E-Learning Environments cont...
  5. 5. E-Learning Expert Salmon 5 Step Model
  6. 6. E-Learning Expert cont… Jung’s Learning Styles
  7. 7. E-Learning Technology <ul><li>Augmented Reality </li></ul><ul><li>Augmented Reality can be explained as having real world elements viewed through the use of computer technology. </li></ul><ul><li>The technology behind the software is a mix of computer vision and object recognition. </li></ul><ul><li>Through the use of smart phones, the user’s surroundings may become interactive and a digital representation or layer is added relaying information to the user. </li></ul><ul><li>Consists of an application which may be either location based or location less – </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Location based applications use image recognition to identify an object from a library of predefined images. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Location less applications use the phones GPS system to relay information to the user based on their position. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. E-Learning Technology Location Based Application - Location Less Application –
  9. 9. E-Learning Technology cont… <ul><li>Potential for Learning – </li></ul><ul><li>Powerful new tools to show the relationships between people and their connections with history. </li></ul><ul><li>Another use of particular significance to education is the area of augmented reality books. </li></ul><ul><li>Easily applied to a range of different areas, such as archaeology, anthropology, or geography . </li></ul><ul><li>The technology also has amazing potential as a learning toll when used in the area of medical science. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
