Download Icel2015 10th International Conference On E Learning books, These proceedings represent the work of researchers participating in the 10th International Conference on e-Learning (ICEL 2015) which is being hosted this year by the College of the Bahamas, Nassau on the 25-26 June 2015. ICEL is a recognised event on the International research conferences calendar and provides a valuable platform for individuals to present their research findings, display their work in progress and discuss conceptual advances in the area of e-Learning. It provides an important opportunity for researchers and managers to come together with peers to share their experiences of using the varied and expanding range of e-Learning available to them. With an initial submission of 91 abstracts, after the double blind, peer review process there are 41 academic Research papers and 2 PhD papers Research papers published in these Conference Proceedings. These papers come from some many different countries including: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Portugal, Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, UK and the USA. A selection of the best papers – those agreed by a panel of reviewers and the editor will be published in a conference edition of EJEL (the Electronic Journal of e-Learning www.ejel.com). These will be chosen for their quality of writing and relevance to the Journal’s objective of publishing papers that offer new insights or practical help into the application e-Learning.
by Dr. P. C. Nagasubramani, E Pedagogy For The Digital Age Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download E Pedagogy For The Digital Age books, Adult learners have more options for enrolling in postsecondary education than ever before, and they are able to use their learning style preference in deciding which program best meets their needs. For some of these students, those programs are fully online, and for others, there is minimal use of technology. As technology grows and become more integrated into individual lives, the unique learning styles and preferences of adults need to learn to be incorporated into instructional design. Drawing on a regional sample of US colleges, 545 adult learners in a graduate programs were surveyed about how to effectively build community in their online classes. Results indicated some agreement with these instructional tools. Mature adult learners, however, were found to have stronger agreement with strategies that included work outside of the formal online class. These results suggest perhaps a greater comfort for adults in working in spaces where there is less likelihood of being judged or graded, and that they might value relational work with other students in different ways than younger adults.

Covering these four major themes, the selected papers give an overview of the present scenario of open and distance learning the world over. Contributors of this book bring in their experience and reflect on issues related to networking, resource sharing, collaboration, globalization and discuss challenges and possible solutions. In the ICT-enabled education section, issues covering practice, attitude towards technology and learning in online world are discussed. Quality issues in distance education are discussed in Section three, and how distance learning can influence educational and societal development are discussed in the last section.
