LXD: Advanced Tools and E-Learning Trends

Our Advanced Tools and E-Learning Trends presents additional varieties of online tools and trends to include in your e-learning activities and will help you build a robust learning ecosystem.

In this 100% online course, you will investigate tools that support online collaboration, videos, screencasts, podcasts, and live streaming and promote deeper student engagement in your e-learning. You will also build your own framework for both evaluating and implementing tools within your e-learning activities.

Active Learning and Creating

The methodology for these courses 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:

  • Explore and compare advanced web tools to be used in learning experiences
  • Create learning artifacts using advanced web tools and share them with others online
  • Reflect on how advanced web tools can be used when designing learning experiences
  • Select effective advanced web tools to support specific learning outcomes

Advanced Learning Experience Tools and Techniques

This is an advanced course that is specifically designed to give you next-level skills. It is created to be as accessible as possible, but having some familiarity with websites and the types of tools we're using will be beneficial. Instructions and support are provided, and this is a great training for those ready and willing to put in the work.I
