Create Online Learning for Where It's Going To Be, Not Where It's Been: An Online Pedagogy for 2006.
Brinsmead, Anne-Marie; Lang, Gregory M.; McTavish, Lee
This paper presents an online pedagogy for 2006 and highlights the learning environment of the School of Continuing Studies at the University of Toronto's Web Forum (i.e., an online education management system that combines teaching and learning systems with management and administration systems). The following components of the Web Forum are described: learning experiences; off-line course enhancement environments; dynamic educational links database; course environment; new course/instructor environment; new or potential learner environment; and instructor/facilitator environment. The context in which a course of learning offering may be integrated into the Web Forum is summarized, including assumptions about learner care, the multiple touch points of telephony, and personalization. The learner's perspective on where online learning has been and its shortcomings is presented, together with ways that adult educators may shift and move toward a menu of pedagogical ideals as facilitated by the solutions provided by Web Forum. It is concluded that Web Forum delivers optimal learning environments and value to the customer. It may be deployed without major investment and prepares the institution to benefit from the projected $17 billion online distributed learning market in 2006 while delivering learner-centric education opportunities.
