|EDT 635: Learning About Distance Education|
|This survey course will cover different aspects of telecommunications,
teleconferencing, video, computers, multimedia, the WWW, and other
technologies related to distance education. The students and professor
will explore the research concerning the best methods of using distance
education and some principles of implementing distance education within
K-12 and higher education, business, and government institutions.
Additionally, new and cutting edge technologies that contribute to this
ever expanding field of education will be discussed and their
relationship to the different forms of both synchronous and asynchronous
distance learning and distance education using computer technology.|
Objectives from the instructor:
This is a collaboratively conducted survey course which focuses on applications of distance education and how distance education can be incorporated into K-12 and higher education. We will explore the various synchronous and asynchronous educational technologies employed in distance education. We will also study various theories of distance education and the pedagogical practices that have proven effective in conducting courses and training at a distance. This course will be a blended course of 50% face-to-face and 50% distance education. What better way to learn about distance education than to experience it.
