A couple of months ago I registered for a webinar on Web 2.0 in E-Learning. I recently read a study about the misuse of technology in the workplace that includes a section I hadn’t thought about previously: what people do on the internet while on corporate time. HP2-037 is one of those commonly preferred certification courses by the students. Different courses and methods are being accessed by students of all age groups at their own choice of time and place.
Its influence on society can also be seen in how people use technology and its ethical significance in the society. While the amount of time spent online is a misuse of technology in itself, it’s what people are doing while online that can be seen as a problem. Some students respond to the audio visual faster while for others the response time is comparatively slow.
In conclusion, today’s generation has an increased ability to enjoy the benefits of technology and Internet due to the increased usage and reliance on technology. However, this technology also creates a dependence with people who use it. Almost every college student is guilty of spending several hours procrastinating by watching TV or by browsing Facebook. You can store a small number of full-text articles onto e.g. your personal computer for research purposes.
Let’s say you want to foster communication and collaboration among your students in a virtual classroom setting: Unless there is a strong requirement for having something like multi-cast videoconferencing (every student sends their video and audio at the same time), a simple text based forum with upload capabilities for files, may do just as fine: Every student knows instantly how to use it. The focus is on the content that is being produced rather than the configuration of peripheral devices.
You may also use the resources on the internet – however, make sure the sources are credible (check out sites like MSN Tech & Gadgets, Toms Hardware, CNET news, etc.)Articles are to be presented (brief sharing to the class) every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month – if you are absent that day, you will be presenting two articles the following time. In a broader sense, technology affects societies in the development of advanced economies, making life more convenient to more people that have access to such technology. Web of Science and Scopus are multidisciplinary reference databases that offer information about articles as well as their connections by way of citations and references.
