Description & Coverage
Description:

Recently, there has been an increased understanding that learning occurs outside of the traditional classroom setting, particularly for adult lifelong learners. This perspective has enhanced an attentive design in the underlying technological architecture that is required for the integration of formal and informal learning environments.

Synergic Integration of Formal and Informal E-Learning Environments for Adult Lifelong Learners presents a collection of issues and research from adult education professionals who define, develop, implement, and evaluate the integration of formal and informal eLearning environments for adult lifelong learners. Academics, teachers, administrators, and learning technologists will benefit from this publication’s unique approach to discussing and analyzing the challenges of introducing and implementing learning technologies for adult lifelong learners.

Coverage:

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

  • Adult Learning
  • Integration Models
  • Lifelong Learners' Characteristics and Learning Profiles
  • Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning
  • Semantic Web Tools
  • Synchronous Learning
  • Virtual Worlds
Reviews and Testimonials

Providing both content-based chapters and case studies, this work looks at the pedagogical potential of lifelong learning for adult students in a variety of academic subjects, cultures, and institutions. The detailed table of contents and descriptive preface will help readers to locate desired chapters, while the index assists in locating pages on specific topics. A compilation of references serves as a bibliography for the topic.
