Online education originated from the University of Illinois in 1960. Although internet would not be created for another nine years, students were able to access class information with linked computer terminals. The first online course was offered in 1986 by the Electronic University Network for DOS and Commodore 64 computers. Computer Assisted Learning eventually offered the first online courses with real interaction. In 2002, MIT began providing online classes free of charge. As of 2009, approximately 5.5 millions students were taking at least one class online. Currently, one out of three college students takes at least one online course while in college (Promises and pitfalls). At DeVry University, out of all students that are earning a bachelor’s degree, 80% earn two-thirds of their requirements online (Promises and Pitfalls). Also in 2014, 2.85 millions students out of 5.8 million students that took courses online, took all of their courses online (Promises and Pitfalls). From this information, it can be concluded that the number of students taking classes online is on the steady increase.  
OIT will conduct emergency maintenance Friday evening (tonight) from 5pm to 9pm. While OIT does not anticipate any impact to users, there may be periods when users are unable to log into eLearning. (Users already logged into eLearning should not be impacted by this maintenance.) Please see the notification from OIT below. If you have any questions, please contact the OIT Helpdesk at 972-883-2911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise Elearning.uwf.edu can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Our service has detected that English is used on the page, and it matches the claimed language. Our system also found out that Elearning.uwf.edu main page’s claimed encoding is utf-8. Use of this encoding format is the best practice as the main page visitors from all over the world won’t have any issues with symbol transcription.
Remember, the course will be created with the Course Title exactly as it has been entered in the Course Title form field. After Please enter the course title as you would like it to be displayed, i.e. “Introduction to Physics”
A four-hour extended maintenance outage has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, from 2-6am (early morning) to add hardware and resources in order to improve eLearning performance. During this time, eLearning will be UNAVAILABLE. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
All official UF and program communication will be sent to the student’s UF email account. You will be able to set up your UFL Email account about 3 weeks after you have been admitted to the program. At that time, use the following instructions to set up your UFL Email.
The University of Florida or UF provides services to their students in many different ways. One of them is UF exchange through which it provides world class service and for that an email is being created so that the user can have a calender access to the site. We need to review the instructions carefully and create an email ID and if needed you will given assistance for that.
Open Graph description is not detected on the main page of ELearning UWF. Lack of Open Graph description can be counter-productive for their social media presence, as such a description allows converting a website homepage (or other pages) into good-looking, rich and well-structured posts, when it is being shared on Facebook and other social media. For example, adding the following code snippet into HTMLtag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
“Legacy eLearning” refers to any training that was developed using software that is outdated, unsupported, or incompatible with current learning systems. So, what can instructional designers do to convert legacy programs to modern eLearning? eLearning Tools legacy eLearning
^ Fiedler, Sebastian.; Väljataga, Terje (2011). “Personal learning environments: concept or technology?”. International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments 2(4). pp. 1–11. Retrieved 2014-03-03. QUOTE: “There are clear signs that over the years a wide range of conceptualisations and interpretations have surfaced in the ongoing debates and exchanges. Attwell (2007b), for example, reported his experience at a conference in the following terms: “there was no consensus on what a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) might be. The only thing most people seemed to agree on was that it was not a software application. Instead it was more of a new approach to using technologies for learning” (p. 1). Even this minimal consensus appears to be rather questionable after a thorough literature review on the topic. Kolas and Staupe (2007) also contested that “the variety of interpretation illustrates how diffuse the PLE concept still is” (p. 750). Johnson and Liber (2008) only recently asserted that “within this label, however, a number of practices and descriptions have emerged – not all of which are compatible, and discussions have raged as to the interpretation of the terms” (p. 3). This doesn’t sound much different from what Johnson et al. (2006) had concluded already two years earlier: “This is title that embraces a variety of different interpretations, and this essential ambiguity is reflected in the discourse that has emerged around it … That such a variety of interpretation can emerge around the same terminology is indicative of a lack of clarity defining exactly what a PLE is” (p. 182). There is very little indication that this state of affairs has substantially improved or is currently improving.”
UF Information Technology has been working on updating the website, which launched Monday, for about two years, said Doug Johnson, the associate director of academic technology. There was no cost to redo the website because UFIT’s web development team redesigned it.
