Authors: Majumder, Shyamal
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Hong Kong : Vocational Training Council ; IVETA
Abstract: It is evident that one of the driving forces towards a learning society resides in the role and power of information and communication technology. While the power and potential of technology is clear, the challenges lie in using technology wisely to advance the lifelong skills. The educational arena of web based learning is still in its infancy. While there are many institutions that are offering web based courses for adult learners, an in-depth understanding of the pedagogical issues related to integrating adult learning in web still remains an unexplored frontier. While literature provides some evidence of the effectiveness of using web based open learning, little is known about which learning strategies should be used to integrate adult learning principle in web to make it useful, interesting and exciting.
