Elearning Translates to Experiential Learning in a Communication Theory Class.
The purpose of this paper is to analyze feedback given by students of a communication theory class, which uses an integrated approach to help students learn the concepts of communication theory. This analysis seeks to determine how this integrated approach helps students understand communication theory, if at all it does help them. The paper draws upon the scholarship of teaching and learning to analyze the emergent situation in the classroom. The students make active use of Blackboard--and e-learning tool to facilitate interaction among themselves as well as the instructors. The paper focuses on the impact of such technologies to supplement pedagogical techniques in making them more constructive and effective. (Contains 11 references.) (Author)
