Editor's Notes

  1. Trends in DE Enrollment in Distance Education is increasing slowly but steadily. There may be many factors contributing to this trend such as demand from students or staff, encouraged by the school administration as strategic necessity, or the general wider acceptance of Distance Education as method of learning. Advances in learning management systems enable ways to increase student engagement such as: Personalized Learning allows students to customize their learning environment and allows students to choose their preferred tools for learning and creating assignment artifacts. Gamification adds a layer over the learning system that awards students experience points for completing tasks. Accumulating points can lead to badges or recognition for reaching a specific level, completing a certain task, or sequence of tasks. This adds to engagement by giving students instant feedback. It can also be an alternate way of tracking progress. Some learning systems have mobile apps that allow you to interact with the content on a mobile device. Assignments could also be completed with a mobile device's camera or microphone.
