Educational technology, particularly in online learning environments, can allow students to use real identity, pseudonym, or anonymous identity during classroom communication. Advantages in anonymizing race, age, and gender are increased student participation and increased cross-cultural communication. Risks include increased cyberbullying, and aggressive or hostile language.
According to Jenkins, “Rather than dealing with each technology in isolation, we would do better to take an ecological approach, thinking about the interrelationship among different communication technologies, the cultural communities that grow up around them, and the activities they support.” Jenkins also suggested that the traditional school curriculum guided teachers to train students to be autonomous problem solvers. However, today’s workers are increasingly asked to work in teams, drawing on different sets of expertise, and collaborating to solve problem. Learning styles and the methods of collecting information have evolved, and “students often feel locked out of the worlds described in their textbooks through the depersonalized and abstract prose used to describe them”. These twenty-first century skills can be attained through the incorporation and engagement with technology. Changes in instruction and use of technology can also promote a higher level of learning among students with different types of intelligence.
The influence of technology on training organizational workforce has been huge for the past few years. Digitization has increased the scope of using personalized mobile apps to deliver customized learning experiences at the point of need.
Turnitin (anti-plagiarism) software will undergo essential maintenance on Saturday 01/07/2017 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM CST. During this 8 hour window, Turnitin assignments will not be available. This does not… More affect regular eLearning assignments; it only affects Turnitin assignments. Users are requested to plan accordingly.
E-learning may either be synchronous or asynchronous. Synchronous learning occurs in real-time, with all participants interacting at the same time, while asynchronous learning is self-paced and allows participants to engage in the exchange of ideas or information without the dependency of other participants′ involvement at the same time.
Gatorlink: Please enter the Gatorlink ID of the Instructor. If you are completing the form on behalf of the Instructor, be sure to put the Instructor’s Gatorlink ID in this field. The system will create the course under this person and will also notify us that you made the request for the Instructor and you will be as a Facilitator. You will be added to the course manually by us so you will not have access until this is done, but the Instructor will have access immediately once the course is created and they can add you at that time.
In case of changing the password or in case you forget your password, you can visit the site at: http://elearning.ufl.edu/ and enter into the login to e-learning which will ask for the GatorLink username and password.
Wolf lists 12 executive function skills necessary for students to succeed in postsecondary education: plan, set goals, organize, initiate, sustain attention/effort, flexibility, monitor, use feedback, structure, manage time, manage materials, and follow through. These skills, along with strong independent and self-regulated learning, are especially pronounced in the online environment and as many ADHD students suffer from a deficit in one or more of these executive functions, this presents a significant challenge and accessibility barrier to the current e-learning approach.
Note: If you have multiple sections, the system will create the course with all of the sections included in one course. If you prefer that each section be created as its own course, please request each course separately.
No webpage is capable of doing that to my knowledge. It’s just some BS made up by some professor of yours (I figure that if eLearning really could do that then everyone’s syllabi would say that. None of mine do…). The only stuff eLearning can track is other eLearning stuff.

Recently, an instructional designer friend of mine asked me, “Should Marketing review eLearning courses and approve them before they are released?” So, should Marketing review eLearning courses? The post Should Marketing Review eLearning Courses? MORE
The delivery of a learning, training or education program by electronic means. E-learning involves the use of a computer or electronic device (e.g. a mobile phone) in some way to provide training, educational or learning material. (Derek Stockley 2003)
Each of these numerous terms has had its advocates, who point up potential distinctive features. However, many terms and concepts in educational technology have been defined nebulously; for example, Fiedler’s review of the literature found a complete lack agreement of the components of a personal learning environment. Moreover, Moore saw these terminologies as emphasizing particular features such as digitization approaches, components or delivery methods rather than being fundamentally dissimilar in concept or principle. For example, m-learning emphasizes mobility, which allows for altered timing, location, accessibility and context of learning; nevertheless, its purpose and conceptual principles are those of educational technology.

It’s very exciting to learn about and invest in the latest trends in educational technology. Who among us hasn’t been swept up by the allure of gamification , the promise of curation , and a desire to embed microlearning at every conceivable moment of learning need? No matter how enticing these new ideas might be, we are always (rightly) concerned about adoption. MORE
