E-learning

This study establishes a theoretical basis for an extension of a previous: typology of design elements of online courses to include elements specifically impacting students with disabilities. The prevalence of these special design elements is then examined from the results of a survey of existing online courses. It was found that these courses do generally include design elements necessary to meet the basic needs of students with disabilities, but that as more students with more sophisticated needs enroll in online courses, the design of these courses must further evolve.
Electronic portfolios extend the traditional paper-based portfolio concept to allow digital work and achievements to be organised and presented to different audiences for different purposes. This session will show how teachers can extend and enrich the use of e-portfolios to address the thinking skills, assessment and learning styles areas using myportfolio, Editure
The Le@rning Federation learning objects and digital resources are becoming an exciting part of the curriculum for schools across Australia and New Zealand, but how do teachers exploit their true potential? How can a teacher build activities around the object or resource to ensure true engagement and higher order thinking occurs? We will explore how scaffolding can be built around this content to create a unique learning experience for students in Editure
Many educators see videoconferencing as somehow being the universal 'top of the pedagogy pile' method for instructing students at a distance. Research and experience within Education Queensland via the Virtual Schooling Service and the I-Support project is showing quite clearly that this is not the case. Truly effective educational activites must provide opportunites for both synchronous and asynchronous activities if the students are to maintain the locus of power in achieving their educational outcomes.
