Some instructors choose to grant Early Access to their courses, allowing you to get a head-start on coursework. Courses set to allow Early Access will become active in eLearning the day after grades are due for the previous term. Not all instructors choose this option. If your instructor has granted Early Access you will see a link to “Go to eLearning” under “Details” in the My Classes app in MyUWF:
By default, courses are set up so that students can view their work (e.g. what they submitted for an assignment or a discussion). In addition, students can see materials posted in a course (such as lectures and files) that were made available to them during the course.
The issue reported earlier has been resolved. You should now see the Fall 2017 courses listed in eLearning. (Please Note – Students will not be able to access these courses until the first day of the… More semester, which is August 21.) Thank you for your patience. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Every year it’s fun to take a broad look at the eLearning industry and try to predict some trends that will dominate the coming months. Take a look at each eLearning trend and let us know in the comments which you’re most excited about.
Use the link about to chat LIVE with one of our librarians…or, if it is “after hours” the link will automatically help you generate an email so someone can respond to your question when we are open again!
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 added 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.

Computer-based training (CBT) refers to self-paced learning activities delivered on a computer or handheld device such as a tablet or smartphone. CBT initially delivered content via CD-ROM, and typically presented content linearly, much like reading an online book or manual. For this reason, CBT is often used to teach static processes, such as using software or completing mathematical equations. Computer-based training is conceptually similar to web-based training (WBT) which are delivered via Internet using a web browser.

New technologies are frequently accompanied by unrealistic hype and promise regarding their transformative power to change education for the better or in allowing better educational opportunities to reach the masses. Examples include silent film, broadcast radio, and television, none of which have maintained much of a foothold in the daily practices of mainstream, formal education. Technology, in and of itself, does not necessarily result in fundamental improvements to educational practice. The focus needs to be on the learner’s interaction with technology—not the technology itself. It needs to be recognized as “ecological” rather than “additive” or “subtractive”. In this ecological change, one significant change will create total change.
