Is Virtual Collaboration Facilitating the Learning Process?

By IGI Global on Nov 21, 2016
Is Virtual Collaboration Facilitating the Learning Process? What is better- digital instruction or classroom instruction? And is it possible for teachers to make strong connections with students over the Internet? The growing popularity of online learning programs has prompted various studies in this area to answer these questions. It is imperative that teachers and faculty explore the best ways to communicate with students online before diving into course design and teaching in today's digitized society.

The video lecture "Creating and Sustaining Positive Online Learning Experiences" provides research-based and practical guidance for the development of positive learning experiences in online learning environments. Ideas for creating connections among online learners, building successful online partnerships, and addressing the self-efficacy of online learners are among the topics discussed.

In Lesson 1 of the series, "Creating a Community of Learners," Editor Deborah A. Scigliano of Duquesne University, USA, explores developing issues in the area of online teaching, focusing on streamlining connections with online learners to maximize the student-teacher connections in virtual environments. In-service and pre-service teachers, as well as technology specialists, administrators, and researchers in the field of education will find this lecture to be a useful educational and professional development resource.
