Description & Coverage
Description:

In e-learning, the learner spends a significant amount of time online, interacting with Web-based applications. This interaction carries tremendous weight in the learning process, because it directly influences the way the learner receives, comprehends, and ultimately retains information.

Affective, Interactive, and Cognitive Methods for E-Learning Design: Creating an Optimal Education Experience brides a current gap in e-learning literature through focus on the study and application of human computer interaction principles in the design of online education in order to offer students the optimal learning experience. This advanced publication gives insight into the most significant design issues encountered and offers solutions to help in the creation of an ideal learning environment.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Blended e-learning
  • Collaborative approaches to e-learning design
  • Collaborative learning via Web 2.0
  • Designing sustainable simulation-based learning
  • E-learning to achieve fluency in foreign languages
  • Individual approaches to e-learning design
  • Multimedia and virtual reality in e-learning
  • Ontologies for courseware design
  • Social interaction in e-learning environments
  • Student involvement in e-learning application design
  • Values of augmented reality learning scenarios in education
Reviews and Testimonials

...gives insight into the most important design and other issues encountered when creating e-learning, helping the reader create better designed, thoughtful e-learning materials, lessons, activities, courses or software.

This collection presents several design approaches to technology-enhanced learning based on interactive behavior, cognitive theories, and affective characteristics. The 15 chapters discuss the transition from teaching to learning in contemporary education in the context of ICT and the Web, and explore the role of multimedia and virtual reality. Topics include interface design for social interaction in e-learning environments, a pedagogics pattern model of blended e-learning, ontology engineering for courseware design, and pattern drills for foreign language acquisition.
