The volume consists of twenty-five chapters selected from among peer-reviewed papers presented at the CELDA (Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age) 2013 Conference held in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, in October 2013 and also from world class scholars in e-learning systems, environments and approaches. The following sub-topics are included: Exploratory Learning Technologies (Part I), e-Learning social web design (Part II), Learner communities through e-Learning implementations (Part III), Collaborative and student-centered e-Learning design (Part IV). E-Learning has been, since its initial stages, a synonym for flexibility. While this dynamic nature has mainly been associated with time and space it is safe to argue that currently it embraces other aspects such as the learners’ profile, the scope of subjects that can be taught electronically and the technology it employs. New technologies also widen the range of activities and skills developed in e-Learning. Electronic learning environments have evolved past the exclusive delivery of knowledge. Technology has endowed e-Learning with the possibility of remotely fomenting problem solving skills, critical thinking and team work, by investing in information exchange, collaboration, personalisation and community building.

As traditional classroom settings are transitioning to online environments, teachers now face the challenge of using this medium to promote effective learning strategies, especially when teaching older age groups. Because adult learners bring a different set of understandings and skills to education than younger students, such as more job and life experiences, the one-size-fits-all approach to teaching does not work, thus pushing educators to create a student-centered approach for each learner. The Handbook of Research on Student-Centered Strategies in Online Adult Learning Environments is an important resource providing readers with multiple perspectives to approach issues often associated with adult learners in an online environment. This publication highlights current research on topics including, but not limited to, online competency-based education, nontraditional adult learners, virtual classrooms in public universities, and teacher training for online education. This book is a vital reference for online trainers, adult educators, university administrators, researchers, and other academic professionals looking for emerging information on utilizing online classrooms and environments in student-centered adult education.

Neither an academic tome nor a prescriptive 'how to' guide, The Theory and Practice of Online Learning is an illuminating collection of essays by practitioners and scholars active in the complex field of distance education. Distance education has evolved significantly in its 150 years of existence. For most of this time, it was an individual pursuit defined by infrequent postal communication. But recently, three more developmental generations have emerged, supported by television and radio, teleconferencing, and computer conferencing. The early 21st century has produced a fifth generation, based on autonomous agents and intelligent, database-assisted learning, that has been referred to as Web 2.0. The second edition of "The Theory and Practice of Online Learning" features updates in each chapter, plus four new chapters on current distance education issues such as connectivism and social software innovations.

It is not enough for an instructor to merely present facts to their students; the presentation of information must be made accessible and understandable in the context of the student. As communication technologies become more widely available, traditional educational institutions are no longer the only source of information. What is now necessary is to reconsider what makes for meaningful education and apply those practices to digital natives. Revolutionizing Modern Education through Meaningful E-Learning Implementation evaluates the means by which online education can be improved and systematically integrated more fluidly into traditional learning settings, with special focus on the ethical, pedagogical, and design aspects of building online courses. This publication aims to elucidate the rewards and follies of online education for educators, administrators, programmers, designers, and students of education.



The Effect of Interactivity in e Learning Systems

This book is based on research conducted to investigate whether interactivity yields a learning effect when used appropriately in e-Learning Systems, and whether this effect enhances learning. There is no doubt interactivity is vital in learning. This statement is emphasized to such an extent that it is claimed that students with higher levels of interaction will obtain more positive and higher levels of achievement. However, little scientific evidence can be found to support this relationship. The importance of this book is based on the fact that it provides evidence of the impact of interactivity on e-Learning Systems considering the three main agents of an educational activity: the learner, the teacher and the environment. In addition, the concept of feedback as a key element in any interactive mechanism for enhancing learning is well documented in several studies throughout this book. Three empirical studies are presented that investigated interactivity within the educational triangle. These three studies were conducted based on the framework of positivism and action research paradigms. The first study, entitled “Interactive Pedagogical Feedback”, gathers evidence for how highly interactive pedagogically designed formative feedback enhances students’ memory and understanding. The second study, entitled “Interactive Audio Feedback”, examines whether the speed enhancements of oral feedback improve the conditions for the production of the lecturer’s feedback and the quality of the feedback delivered to the students. The final study, “Interactive Texting Feedback”, takes a pedagogical approach to provide formative feedback to a student audience using mobile text messages, and determines whether Interactive Texting Feedback enhances the learning experience within the e-Learning environment. The information contained in the book is useful for academics and institutions to improve their teaching and the efficiency of their learning delivery mechanisms, and will guide the design of instructional content. It will also be of utility to other researchers and those in roles that require an understanding of interactivity.
