Designed Learning

Web 2.0 has brought a new set of principles on the use of tools available on-line.

The surge in the adoption of Web 2.0 tools, particularly social media, has touched nearly every facet of life.

  • Social – Services encourage social interaction with others
  • Isolated – to the extent that the service does not require interaction with others
  • Group – where the outcome is mainly effected by the aggregate contribution of all users
  • Individual – Where the main outcome is mainly effected by an individual
  • Active – To the extent users are expected to participate to gain
  • Passive – To the extent users can gain passive observations

Users now have a choice as to whether they want to be passive or active.

The advantage of on-line courses, therefore, can now be expressed as a matter of technological relevance rather than mere freedom from temporal or physical limitations.
