E-Learning in Art Education: Collaborative Meaning Making through Digital Art Production
Quinn, Robert D.
Art Education, v64 n4 p18-24 Jul 2011
E-learning has seen incredible growth in the first decade of the 21st century. This growth is particularly noticeable in institutions of higher education. Even though distance learning has long been the method by which remote students have obtained course credit through correspondence study, e-learning is popular even among traditional on-campus students. E-learning offers many potential solutions for some disruptive situations in traditional schooling. Art educators must consider e-learning when devising curricula and pedagogy in anticipation of emergencies, such as pandemics or natural disasters, which might force students to learn from a remote location. In this article, the author describes some developing practices of artmaking using the Internet. He briefly touches on some trends in digitally mediated artmaking practices, including digital photographic manipulation, netArt, and collaboration. These artmaking methods are important in art education because they increase the possibilities of idea generation and image making for artists in the field, and provide a source of inspiration for students in art classrooms.
