eLearning 2.0 Defined with Resources

Like Web 2.0 & eLearning, eLearning 2.0 is not precisely defined and likely means different things to different people.

Key aspects of eLearning 2.0:

  • Extending the platform: e-Learning 2.0 is about using specialized software extensions developed by and for educators, as well as with rich, interactive digital resources.

  • Facilitate Social Networking: e-Learning 2.0 is about enabling a social experience that recognizes the course is but one social-organizational group in a broader education environment.

  • Enable Lifelong Learning: e-Learning 2.0 is about integrating the educational journey across a longer period of time through techniques such as "e-Portfolios"

  • Create Network Learning Environments: e-Learning 2.0 is about moving beyond the course towards a more holistic conception of a networked learning environment
