This topic discovers how Digital Education uses technology to take advantage of global access to like-minded learners
It evaluates trends in teaching methods associated with different types of communication and collaboration technologies
We will analyse and report risk, discuss policy and procedures in light of relevant legislation associated with implementation of a communication and collaboration solution for educational outcomes
Key to this is thinking about the longevity and nature of the learning community
We will look at what it takes to develop a self-sustaining community, then implement and document these steps
Key questions for this topic include:
How do people engage socially online, and learn?
How are people recruited to learning communities?
Are communities for ever, or for a time and purpose?
