Creating Transformational Learning Experiences Online
Online learning, generally understood to mean learning experiences provided over a digital network, can be self-directed or instructor-led, and can be synchronous (live interactions) or asynchronous (elapsed interactions).
But not all online learning is created equal.
Providing learning opportunities for students through a remote and digital environment is best implemented using a variety of elements, including:
- Learning environments that allow for rich educator and student collaboration and communication, that may also include collaboration with subject matter experts, instructional support personnel and peers.
- Digital learning content and interactive learning experiences that engage students in reaching specific learning goals.
- The use of data and information to personalize learning and/or provide targeted instruction.
- A wide variety of computer-based formative and summative assessments.
