Revolutionizing Modern Education through Meaningful E-Learning Implementation

Book Description

It is not enough for an instructor to merely present facts to their students; the presentation of information must be made accessible and understandable in the context of the student. As communication technologies become more widely available, traditional educational institutions are no longer the only source of information. What is now necessary is to reconsider what makes for meaningful education and apply those practices to digital natives. Revolutionizing Modern Education through Meaningful E-Learning Implementation evaluates the means by which online education can be improved and systematically integrated more fluidly into traditional learning settings, with special focus on the ethical, pedagogical, and design aspects of building online courses. This publication aims to elucidate the rewards and follies of online education for educators, administrators, programmers, designers, and students of education.
