Designing, Developing, and Implementing an Interactive Learning System
Hirschbuhl, John J.
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v19 n1 p100-115 Sep 2007
This article describes what interactive, group driven distance learning can be and what it can produce. It provides a solution to one of the primary concerns facing distance learning today, which is to find ways to increase the amount of student involvement and thus maintain student interest in what they are learning. The learning needs of today's students are described. A significant technological part of the solution will be seen in the description of three online learner-centered delivery systems and their communication needs. The vision, goals, objectives, methodology, and results are discussed along with feedback from the participants.
