CCTP 813 - Cyberlearning: Thry Practice
As more and more organizations create learning environments outside of the traditional educational model, understanding how technology facilitates and contributes to the development of different types of learning environments is critical. This course explores how people learn in technology-mediated environments and how the learning environments themselves support the learning process. This exploration happens by answering the following core questions:

1. What do we mean by learning?
-What are the conditions of learning?
-What is the difference between thinking and learning?
-What is formal, non-formal, informal learning?

2. How do we make sense of what is needed for learning to occur?
-What does research from the science of learning tell us about how people learn?
-How have the results of the research been implemented within the context of

3. How do we create engaging learning experiences using networked computing and technologies?
-What types of analyses do we utilize to identify the approach or strategy for learning?
-What are some examples of engaging learning experiences in cyberlearning?
-What evidence can we capture to show that the expected learning has occurred?

To answer these questions and to examine future directions, we rely on the theoretical perspectives of the science of learning. These perspectives stem from a conglomeration of relevant theories from disciplines such as cognitive science, psychology, information technology, communication. The application of the theories to practice has led to the generation of instructional design theories and models. We examine the relevant theories within the context of the newly emerging research field of cyberlearning. We also examine how these theoretical perspectives have been applied within cyberlearning.
