The only way to guide students toward successful online learning is the adaptation of emerging technology and true-to-life implementation of it.
Online learning isn’t a new thing. The first e-learning platform known as Khan Academy appeared in 2006 providing an array of videos on many subjects and giving teachers the opportunity to provide direct instruction to students 24/7 from their own website.
This platform gained popularity very quickly and since then hundreds of educational platforms appeared on the market offering a wide range of digital tools for enhancing the learning process and helping both teachers and students with their tasks.
Another technology that had a seismic impact on e-learning was the iPad released by Apple in 2010. Actually, iPad revolutionized computing by using touch access to share information and since then digital learning has become accessible even for very young children who no longer need keyboard access and facility with the alphabet.
Digital learning has to be adaptive, interactive, immersive, gamified, and collaborative. Educational content has to be presented in all possible formats, not just written otherwise students will not be engaged. Also, it’s well-known that learners of all ages learn much better from interacting with the subject of their study, comparing to traditional teaching methods, and the integration of virtual reality technologies will facilitate learning even more. As for gamification, it’s a great motivator for learning, especially when your peers are involved in the same process so if you are a teacher, make sure that most of the learning projects that you develop for your students are based on collaboration.
