"ePedagogy in Online Learning: New Developments in Web Mediated Human Computer Interaction"
A book edited by Dr Elspeth McKay
RMIT University, School of Business Information Technology and Logistics, Australia
In many places around the world, Web 2.0 continues to be promoted as the new incarnation of the Internet because of the social networking aspects afforded by the supporting technologies. This general acceptance may be due to the evolutionary nature of the ripple effect of the human-dimensions of the whole Internet environment. As a result, there are many ways to view the term Web 2.0. Firstly, in the sense that it represents both a range of information and communication (ICT) tools that enable businesses to profit. Secondly, it is by its meme-like characteristics that are emerging as cultural dogma in new ideas and values, or patterns of behavior, which are passed from one person to another as if by symbiotic imitation. It is the latter definition that sets a broader context for this book, expanding the discussion beyond the popular generation of Web-based tools and educational sites. This book sets out to predict what the future holds in store for both the corporate sector and educational institutions alike, through Web-mediated education and training environments that enable openness, interaction and teach communities to flourish.
OBJECTIVE OF THE BOOK:
The overall objective of this book is to follow on from the previous Premier Reference Source book published in 2007 Enhancing Learning Through Human Computer Interaction to provide a useful handbook on adopting interactive Web 2.0 tools that promote effective HCI pedagogical practice for education and training. Its main purpose is to provide a design manual for the novice educational-HCI designer. Web 2.0 tools are often described in an endless list of discussion or blogging type tools, ignoring the need for finding new ways to improve our ePedagogical strategies. Therefore the chapters in this book are devised to focus interest on e-Learning best practice in corporate performance that is applicable to the education sector. In so doing, it brings forward traditional instructional design frameworks, which involve interactivity on the Internet that have succeeded in the business arena, in a language that is familiar for teaching and learning institutions in schools and higher education.
The general mission of the book is to directly compare and contrast online business sector training practice with e-Learning in the higher education sector. As such, it will provide a range of positive outcomes for linking information management techniques that utilize the social networking power of the Internet, to exploit the educational benefits of Web-mediated learning in computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) environments. The global nature of the anticipated authorship and the expected resulting cultural factors will promote awareness for the social context of online learning and increased organizational performance through enlightened case studies that effectively utilize interactive ICT tools online.
Industry training developers, corporate trainers, courseware designers, government sector specialists, infrastructure policy makers, educational technology practitioners and researchers (school teachers, higher education), and post graduate students.
