Teaching Aspects of E-Learning
Seok, Soonhwa
International Journal on E-Learning, v7 n4 p725-741 Oct 2008
E-Learning is a new form of pedagogy for learning in the 21st century. E-Teachers are e-Learning instructional designers, facilitators of interaction, and subject matter experts. The roles of e-Teachers are to enhance learners' cognitive engagement and interaction. This is achieved by using the benefits of computer mediated communication--greater accessibility and adaptability. This article overviewed sociocultural theory, transactional distance, and computer mediated communication, which support the uniqueness of teaching aspects of e-Learning. Instructional contents, assessment strategies, and digital libraries are discussed as unique elements of e-Teaching. All the stakeholders of e-Learning should make efforts to close transactional distance and increase verbal immediacy. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
