Online Teaching

  1. 1. + Webliography Megan Lents
  2. 2. + INTRODUCTION Providing materials for students to complete courses online has created a new era for teaching. Not only can students benefit from the use of technology, institutions and instructors can efficiently distribute materials and information. Convenience is a major role of online resources, making it easy for students who have difficult schedules to complete assignments and go through lectures on their own time, compared to a designated class time at a university or institution.
  3. 3. + OUTLINE  Online Teaching  What is online teaching? Benefits  Benefits/Disadvantages Disadvantages Reflection  Using Wiki-pages Benefits  What is a wiki-page? Disadvantages  Benefits/Disadvantages Reflection  Weblogs  What is a weblog or “blog”? Benefits  Benefits/Disadvantages Disadvantages Reflection
  4. 4. + ONLINE TEACHING  Online teaching allows the majority of course to be available to students online  Online teaching is most widely as an optional addition to typical courses at universities and colleges  Benefits:  Classroom capacity is not an issue  Students may learn the material when they feel ready, instead of being forced to learn the material at a specific time  Many online classes do not require a textbook, making the course cheaper for students  Transportation to a university or college is no longer an issue  Teachers are able to interact with a one-on-one basis through technology
  5. 5. + ONLINE TEACHING  Disadvantages:  Students must develop a strong sense of self- discipline in order to complete a course successfully  Students aren’t able to interact with instructor face- to-face without going out of their way to visit the instructor on their own time  Students and teachers must learn how to use the computer software in order to complete the course  Plagiarism becomes a larger factor in assignments due to the availability of the internet
  6. 6. + ONLINE TEACHING Personal Reflection The article pointed out that their was no classroom capacity as an advantage to online teaching. I disagree with that statement due to the fact that I believe in order for a student to succeed they need plenty of interaction with instructor. If there are two- hundred people in one classroom, how is it possible to get one-on-one time with an instructor? However, I do agree with online teaching being very self- disciplined. The student taking the course must set a weekly schedule, allowing a set time for the lesson to be learned and assignments to be completed.
  7. 7. + USING WIKI-PAGES  Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser Benefits:  Gives students the opportunity to create series of WebPages  Students are able to revise their own work and other classmate’s work  Wiki can display photos, text and video  Creates a place for writing exercises  Creates a way to do group work outside of a classroom
  8. 8. + USING WIKI-PAGES  Disadvantages:  Anyone can edit the Web-Page unless it is locked  The teacher is not always there when you need he/she at a certain time  Requires Internet connectivity to collaborate  Open to SPAM and Vandalism if not managed properly  Language in the Wiki pages is far less formal than in academic papers.
  9. 9. + USING WIKI-PAGES Personal Reflection  When reading this article I enjoyed it because it shows how a teacher uses Wiki-pages to teach Shakespeare. The teacher uses both Qwikiwiki and Media-Wiki to teach students at the Univeristy of Maryland in Baltimore. Through Wiki the students learn how to work in groups and writing skills. I liked how in the article it showed examples of what a Wiki Page looks like and it gave examples of how it looks to edit and how the teacher can give feedback to the student.
  10. 10. + USING WEB-BLOGS  A blog is a Web site that consists of a series of entries arranged in reverse chronological order, often updated on frequently with new information about particular topics. The information can be written by the site owner, gleaned from other Web sites or other sources, or contributed by users.  Benefits:  Critical thinking  Reflective thinking  Giving a subject serious consecutive consideration  Students of any age are able to use “Blogs”  Blogs can motivate students to read which then creates a learning experience for students  Allows people to to exchange information without space and time issues
  11. 11. USING WEB-BLOGS  Disadvantages:  Blogs are open to Public, and viewers can comment or post messages  Student can be afraid to post certain messages do to what other’s might think about them Check Out My Blog
  12. 12. + USING WEB-BLOGS Personal Reflection  My thoughts about the article on “blogs” was interesting because I never thought that the internet could help students in enhancing reflection and learning within certain subjects. The section on stimulating and motivate learning, I use to think before I read this article that using the internet would make someone want to skip out on reading but that is not true, the Blogs actually make the student want to read and learn.
  13. 13. + Conclusion Through the power point, it shows each step to help make an online class successful. Students are able to learn through blogs and Wiki pages. Shown in the power point is positive and negatives to each part just like there would be in a classroom. I enjoyed making the power point and I learned new ways that education is being taught.
