Synchronous Versus Asynchronous Learning
Before you consider teaching or learning in a virtual environment, you should understand and compare the various types of environments available in distance-learning programs. The two main methods of learning and teaching online are synchronous and asynchronous.
Teach Marketing with Pinterest
Years ago, marketing ideas were presented using large presentation boards, drawings, or images and an impressive narrative to add a bit of reality to how the product may be viewed by others. Do you remember the hit television series Mad Men that is set in the 1960s?
Teach Political Science with Twitter
Using Twitter in a classroom requires careful planning to ensure that incorporating it into the course syllabus will optimize the learning experience. Twitter delivers access to numerous real-time current events that can be a valuable instructional tool.
Teaching Adult Students Online
Throughout my career in information technology I have witnessed a transformation in how conglomerates hire, train, and share information. Gone are the days of on-site interviews, face-to-face staff meetings, and in-house corporate training.
Teaching and Learning in Virtual Worlds
Schools such as Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Stanford have developed university tours within SL for potential students to visit the campus virtually. This is a great first step that introduces SL to students, allowing them the opportunity to learn about it firsthand.
Teaching and Learning Through Social Media
The popularity of social media includes high school and college students communicating and collaborating on a regular daily basis, with the generation of Baby Boomers following along. Even seniors are starting to embrace social media as a way to stay in touch with family and friends.
Teaching with LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a global social media service designed for professional networking with business colleagues or future prospects. Think of LinkedIn as a progressive method of discussing your work background and exchanging business cards, minus the actual cards.
Teaching with Technology
The use of technology is not only required in an online environment—today many teachers from brick and mortar institutions are beginning to incorporate technology into their own instruction.
Teaching with Wordpress
Many marketing tools today allow users to incorporate a variety of social networking applications; Wordpress is one of these tools. It can provide users with a great launching pad to begin conceptualizing their eMarketing strategy, and it can be used as a great companion tool for class projects.
The Self-Directed Distance Learner
Have you ever heard of Self-Directed Learning? If you have ever participated in a distance learning program, then you might be familiar with self-directed learning.
