There are many different ways to look at quality in e-learning. In this presentation the emphasis is on the design of instruction influenced by the affordances of technology, and in particular the affordances of learning management systems such as Moodle. The session will also look at the relationship between web 2.0 tools and LMS, and how these can be integrated to provide quality learning that meets the needs of 21st century learners.

PLENARY: Bradley Shende: The Business of Social in Learning - And What the Future Holds

 

The Business of Social in Learning - And What the Future Holds
(How Social can change the learning landscape)

The world has become so connected, digitally and socially, in the past five years we can now safely claim communications to have transcended simple confines of Web, Mobile, Internet, and all other traditional forms: in the current digital ecosystem, only organizations that can guide and manage their content while actively listening and engaging, can survive and thrive.  Online Education has shifted fundamentally from a space where users have participated to one where they are equal part creators of content. Engagement, gamification, and social communication are all buzz-words on the tips of professionals grappling to stay current.


Bradley Shende will lead a conversation on this next phase of social evolution through examples of technology past present and future. Featured throughout this presentation are stories and examples of organizations who have embraced social to staggering success and sometimes dismal failure. We will take an honest look at the challenges faced, solutions discovered, lessons learned, and change achieved.

Understanding this paradigmatic shift in what makes communication now so social - is also a key to keeping up with the pace of technology in education.
