CHAPTER 7 (CONNECTING LEARNERS AT A DISTANCE)
1. What is distance learning?
Distance learning was popular used in describing learning via telecommunication.
Distance learning is instructional delivery systems that connect learners regardless of
their location, with educational resources. As distance learning occurs in different place
from learning, it requires special techniques of course design, instructional design and
communication. It used technology to make possible new approaches to the teaching and
learning process rather than simply the addition of technology to instruction.
2. How do audio and television systems facilitate distance learning?
Audio such as radio was one of the first technologies that have been used to deliver
education remotely. Although the usage of this facilitate item are rare nowadays, but it’s
still use in the area where the internet connection low. Successful of audio usage is when
consideration of what resources is available to students at various locations and
awareness that the audio may be sufficient to convey the learning experience. One issues
associated to audio usage is lack of visual information. However, audio can be
supplemented by handout which is faxed to the students in order to help students
understanding. Television technologies offer many different types of instructional
opportunities for learners. Students can learn on their own by watching channel provided
such as Discovery channel. One-way television term referring to television delivery
systems that transmit programs to students without interactive to teacher. Two-way
television communication system is differentiating when it can be use for sending audio
feedback to the presenter. It will happen with help of camera and microphone devices. In
such cases, television simulates the regular classroom setting by allowing interactions
between students and teacher. Some interactive television system use compressed video,
which removes redundant video information.
3. Identify three characteristics each of LAN, WAN, intranet, and wireless networks.
Relies on centralized computer called server and all computers connect to it.
All classrooms can access to the school’s collection of software and data.
Can reduce technology’s workload.
Networks that extend beyond wall of room or building, connecting via cable
or fiber system.
Can connect computers over a wide geographic area.
Often used for smaller configurations.
Used internally by a school or organization.
Systems connected to it are private and accessible only by authorized person.
May have firewall to prevents external user accessing internal network.
d) Wireless Network
Connect computer without wire.
Computer no longer bound to workstation.
Can used laptop anywhere within the access area to the internet.
