Beyond the virtual campus: Technologies for virtual learning communities

310 views

Published on

Abstract:
Information and communication technologies have been used formally for many years to build the infrastructure of the virtual campus. However, rich student experiences are a product of both educational and social learning - whether they aske place in the real world or virtually. Like the real world, online communities can flourish and evolve dynamically creating opportunities for social learning which will sustain the learner long after their formal programme of students has officially ended. This presentation will examine the range of different social learning opportunities available and compare the contributions of formal and informal social learning to the growth and sustainability of virtual learning communities
