Synopses & Reviews
Many of the early issues in the field of telE-learning are now not only recognised but are being addressed, through professional and staff development routes, through innovative technological solutions, and through approaches and concepts that are better suited to particular educational contexts. TelE-LEARNING: The Challenge for the Third Millennium provides details of the most recent advances in this area, and covers issues concerned with: -the position of on-line learning in the development of the information society; -developments in virtual organisations, virtual institutes and virtual laboratories; -creation and development of interactive and adaptive context-aware learning environments using intelligent agents and cognitive style match; -integrating collaborative learning and collective competencies into on-line learning practices; -creation and development of e-learning portals, and concerns with inter-operability; -uses of on-line learning environments in diverse subjects, such as environmental education, mathematics and ICT; -changes with educational organisation and the impact of culture and culturation; -the role of case studies and models in teacher development of practice; -educational uses of broadcasting and web-based technology; -creation and development of assessment and computerised examination systems in on-line learning environments; -the role of team work, team learning and team teaching in on-line learning environments used for work-based purposes; -the role of on-line learning environments in parent-child relationships and rehabilitation situations; -a focus on shifts in female enrolment in computer science courses; -theories and concepts of telE-learning (including the application of activity theory and situated learning theory to on-line delivery and learning); -developments in appropriate research methodologies for on-line learning environments. TelE-LEARNING: The Challenge for the Third Millennium contains the edited proceedings of Stream 3 of the 17th World Computer Congress, which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Montréal, Québec, Canada in August 2002.
