Description

Beyond the hype of online learning lies a straightforward question: how do you really deliver worthwhile learning online? This book, based on action research, provides a simple answer to this fundamental question by exploring a key technique that enables teachers and learners to use available technologies happily and successfully.

So, what are e-tivities? They are motivating, engaging, purposeful activities developed and led by an e-moderator. They are frameworks for active and interactive online learning. E-tivities are in the hands of the teachers themselves and promote active e-learning.

This is not a book about the technology of online learning. Practical, accessible and direct, it looks at personalizing and customizing teaching and learning. Written for use in any topic, subject or course, E-tivities explores:

  • the importance of activities in online learning;
  • designing and running e-tivities;
  • the five-stage model of teaching and learning online.

Backed up extensive illustrations and case studies, and including a unique collection of 35 Resources for Practitioners, this is a book for all professionals involved in online learning.

Reviews

'Teachers are likely to find the book accessible, and anything which encourages them to try out the e-learning medium, and emphasizes the educational benefits of communication, is to be applauded. There are some great nuggets in E-tivities.' - Innovations in Education and Teaching International

'Another classic how-to book from an expert in the field. This book will provide ideas and stimuli to online tutors everywhere. It is a hype-free zone, full of practical, tried and tested approaches to engaging learners in online discussion.' - Professor Robin Mason

E-tivities really is a marvellous handbook. A practical guide to the new e-learning, it takes the angst out of online tutoring and provides a much-needed comfort zone. E-tivities is the craft of e-moderating made easy.
