Kaul, Manfred; Kless, André; Bonne, Thorsten; Rieke, Almut
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on E-Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Jul 20-22, 2017)
Almost unnoticed by the e-learning community, the underlying technology of the WWW is undergoing massive technological changes on all levels these days. In this paper we draw the attention to the emerging game changer and discuss the consequences for online learning. In our e-learning project "Work & Study", funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we have experimented with several new technological approaches such as Mobile First, Responsive Design, Mobile Apps, Web Components, Client-side Components, Progressive Web Apps, Course Apps, e-books, and web sockets for real time collaboration and report about the results and consequences for online learning practice. The modular web is emerging where e-learning units are composed from and delivered by universally embeddable web components. [For the complete proceedings, see ED579335.]
