E-Learning Certificate: Exploring E-Learning Tools

Exploring E-Learning Tools highlights a variety of online tools to include in your e-learning activities, including those that support online collaboration, videos, screencasts, podcasts, photos, graphics and presentations.

The methodology for this course is based on constructionism, where you create new learning by "tinkering" and creating learning artifacts with the tools, sharing them with your peers on a digital portfolio website, then discussing and reflecting on what you have learned.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Identify and classify different technologies, tools and applications
  • Compare, contrast and evaluate different technologies, tools and applications
  • Choose appropriate technologies, tools and applications to most effectively support instruction and achieve learning outcomes

Time Commitment: Plan for 3-6 hours of work per week.
