Terms to know 1. E-learning

According to Merriman-Webster Online Dictionary (2009) electronic learning, or elearning, is defined as “a kind of learning which occurs through the Internet, a network or only a computer and as audible, visual and interactive synchronous, or asynchronous, educational activities”. Waller and Wilson (2004) claim that e-learning is sometimes defined as “the effective learning process created by combining digitally delivered content with learning support services”. Akkoyunlu and Soylu (2008) add that any use of electronic technology, e.g., audio or video recording, Web-based learning programs, or computer-based learning, that are used in different learning experiences can be referred to as e-learning. Resources and media may include: audio tapes/files and videos/DVDs, telephone conferencing, computer-aided learning (CBT) or video on CD-ROM, or Mobile learning (m-learning). Source: Fawzi, Hala.

Online learning Online learning is the learning that takes place entirely through the Internet. It includes text, graphics, animation, audio, video, discussion boards, electronic mail (email), etc. A recently published (2007) Sloan-C report, states that the proportion of content delivered online is between 30% h to 79%. The report also states that there are three types of courses; traditional, with 0% of content delivered online; Webfacilitated, with 29% of content delivered online; and online, with 80-100% of content delivered online. The most significant characteristic of online learning is that the teacher and the learner are in different physical environments and that the communication between the teacher and students throughout the teaching or learning process is carried out via e-mail, forums or any other tool available on the Internet, whether synchronously, or asynchronously. All assessment of student work is conducted online. An online course includes no face-to-face component, and that 100% of learning activities are Web based. (Dziuban et al, 2004).
