Course Content (Syllabus)
The course for "flexible learning" examines ways in which the Internet technology and the widespread use of mobile devices can reduce or even eliminate barriers to learning. The course familiarizes the student with the object gradually, commencing with the presentation of a general conceptual framework for flexible learning, progressing to "classical" topics of distance education and e-learning (and in particular distance learning), and concludes with particular issues on adaptive educational systems, and collaborative and virtual educational environments of the Internet. These subjects are: e-Learning & m-Learning. Distance learning services. Communication services and Internet collaboration (e-mail, newsgroups, interactive whiteboards, virtual classrooms, audio-and videoconferencing). Finally, it presents a series of brief but yet targeted learning objects focusing on modern development tools for (a) educational websites, (b) digital learning material, and (c) the use of mobile devices as "ubiquitous" active learning assistants.
