In blended learning you use real traditional classes mixed with online activity in an environment. This takes you to modify your traditional class, since a lot of your classic functions (i.e. providing materials, retrieving information / opinion from students…) are much better performed by the e-learning environment.
In its simplest form, real-time collaboration consists of two or more people working together with the ability to share information and communicate in real-time. Including multiple viewpoints greatly helps inresource creation and the ability to edit simultaneously provides powerfulopportunities for group work both in and out of the classroom.
The database activity module allows students to upload their notes or answersand access others’ after they have uploaded two of their own. This feature createsnotes or question database and a useful resource for both teaching and learning.Requiring students to upload two first ensures that they’re taking their own notesand doing their own work before turning to someone else’s.
Share and communicate, Instant messaging
In order for education to happen, communication is paramount. Through Calana, teachers communicate with their students via forums, live chat, andediting documents, through real-time collaboration. Chat allows teachers andstudents to communicate about a collaborative task, share ideas, share links, andin general work together on projects. Better yet, the live chats can be recordedand saved for future reference.
Mobile devices have become ubiquitous and offer many new possibilities for learning. Moodle, when combined with a mobile device, opens up a new world of possibilities to teachers, instructors, and training professionals to develop their courses. The learning experience can be hugely improved by playing to the strengths of mobile devices
