Panke, Stefanie; Seufert, Tina – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2013
In the last decade, the concept of Open Educational Resources (OER) has gained an undeniable momentum. However, it is an easy trap to confuse download and registration rates with actual learning and interest in the adoption and reuse of OER.

Terras, Melody M.; Ramsay, Judith; Boyle, Elizabeth – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2013
The provision of Open Educational Resources (OER) means that learning horizons are no longer restricted by time and space. However, if the learning potential of OER is to be fully realised, educators and students must have the media literacy skills to select, use and produce information in a judicious and useful way.

Davidson, Cathy N.; Goldberg, David Theo – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2012
Over the past two decades, the way we learn has changed dramatically. We have new sources of information and new ways to exchange and to interact with information.

Corneli, Joseph – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2012
This article considers the problem of peer-producing rich online learning environments, a task that appears techno-socially feasible, but is not without challenge. The author draws on the self-professedly "utopian" approach developed by Baudrillard in "The Mirror of Production", to establish and understand the two key dimensions of leverage…

Bleazby, Jennifer – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2012
There is an extensive body of literature which argues that the Internet supports student-centred learning, collaboration, community, higher-order thinking and the construction of meaning and knowledge. As such, many e-learning advocates have turned to the Community of Inquiry as an ideal pedagogy because it too shares these educational ideals.…

Decuypere, Mathias; Simons, Maarten; Masschelein, Jan – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2011
The ongoing development of mobile devices like cell phones, iPods, PDAs, and so on is seen by an increasing number of educationalists as a chance to focus on a new kind of learning. This mobile learning, as it is called, should enable students to learn while on the move. Rather than giving a genealogy of the use of mobile equipment in education,…

Seufferheld, Manfredo J.; Scagnoli, Norma I. – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2011
The last decade has seen a great variety in the ways in which instructors have incorporated the World Wide Web into their traditional classroom courses; however, this combination has not always translated into changes or improvements in teaching and learning. The real challenge has proved to be not the addition of web resources to the traditional…

Cheung, Chi-Kim – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2010
The nature of knowledge is being redefined by a new media landscape that allows all participants to be media producers and owners. Without a comprehensive strategy to include Web 2.0 tools and social media practices within schools, powerful new skills will be neither harnessed, nor developed. Despite the challenge to the relationship between…

Ondercin, David J. – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2010
The university's role in the nation's economy is to increase its ability to transfer research to industry, generate new inventions and patents, and spin-off its technology in the form of startup companies. As such, there has been a movement in the USA and around the world to make universities "engines of innovation", and to enhance their ability…
