The aim of Libri Books is to be the imprint of choice for authors and readers addressing issues in professional/organisational development and management. Specific categories include: ‘The Business of Higher Education’, ‘Health Policy and Medical Training’ and ‘Management Policy and Strategy’. Libri Books are written primarily for members of ‘communities of practice’ which include professionals, consultants and trainers, as well as researchers and academics.
This book has a completely new take on e-learning in higher education, introducing a novel framework which distinguishes between e-learning 1.0 (distribution), e-learning 2.0 (dialogue), and e-learning 3.0 (construction). Through this framework, the use of e-learning is actively linked to three theoretical perceptions of learning: 1.0 (behavioural learning theory), 2.0 (cognitive learning theory), and 3.0 (social learning theory).
E-learning 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 guides the reader through the design and use of e-learning by the central framework. Readers are invited to reflect on the learning theories underlying their own e-learning design practices. The book introduces eight practical examples of e-learning design considerations and e-learning implementations as academic colleagues from around the world present their concrete use-cases of e-learning technologies.
E-learning 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 will enable readers to use the framework for e-learning and its link to associated learning theories to inform their own design and use of e-learning technologies – for the benefit not only of teachers, but also the engagement and learning of students.
