Description


Volume two of Leading Issues in e-Learning Research brings together a collection of the latest ideas in the area of e-Learning research. e-Learning is undergoing a revolution. The expectations of X and Y generation learners are changing the way we teach. They want more interactive, social and mobile course presentation formats which are resulting in novel teaching methods like flipped classrooms, new tools for learning, apps, social learning and augmented reality. Also, the rise of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) can offer free education for learners around the world. Behind the trends is an ever more globalised, complex and interconnected world which has led to new expectations regarding training, especially in higher education settings: students need to be digitally literate and able to manage uncertainty through creative thinking. This is a profound change which draws its inspiration from the world of business, fostering pedagogical innovation to create new e-Learning initiatives. Melanie Ciussi has put together an excellent collection of leading research papers on the pedagogical innovations that are part of this digital revolution. The general reader as well as researchers, teachers and students will find this book very rewarding.
