This short course will provide an introduction to a variety of learning technologies for the purpose of teaching and learning. The use of learning technologies, including learning management systems such as Blackboard, blogs, podcasts, wikis and even Twitter is growing as educators see the potential for collaboration, reflection, creation, sharing and other key elements of learning through the use of such tools.
This is a blended course with most of the work to be completed online, but there will be five required in-class sessions, beginning Tuesday, January 21 and ending Tuesday, April 15. Two additional "live" online sessions will take place using Google Hangouts. These sessions will include guest speakers and will be recorded and made available on YouTube for those unable to attend.
