5 Bill Gates`s vision in The Road Ahead (1995) 195. When the information highway is in operation, the texts of millions of books will be available.

6 Forms of teaching in e-learning Individual learning Internet search, using e- learning and webpages for collecting information and for studying Additional teaching material from the Internet, off-line reading Community learning, communication supported by computer Chat, blogs, forums, etc A-synchronic communication, email, teaching management vs. time management

7 E learning Computer Based Learning Technology Based Learning Computer Aided Instruction Web Based Learning Computer Supported Collaborative Learning Distributed Learning

8 Learning possibilities Storing data (readings, additional teaching material, papers, reaction papers) processing information: study aids interactivity hypertex-links, hypermedia, associative learning multimedia- film, music, photographs (copyright issue) virtual reality: iconomania and artificially enhanced visual culture

9 Didactics Textbook becomes a series of software application: research library as a concept network of information: emailing learning script: software defines what and how should be learned forming a learning community: constructivist learning theory: knowledge is being built up by the student modular structure systematic design of instruction

10 Process of learning Two positions: process is not touched by the medium vs. medium influences the process NOW: blended-learning, mixed mode learning, dual mode curricula, distributed learning instructor: designing the process

13 E-learning -Advantages interactivity: threaded discussion, notes, chat transcript, search function, direct messages changing intellectual lives of students as members of global feminist world open dialogue, feedback, assessment focuses on value you get from participation combining familiarity and excitement constructing feminist cyber-community linking to feminist digital symbolic capital creating systems of knowledge

14 On-line learning Learning in a community: doing, belonging, experiencing, becoming students redefining themselves through process of learning, constructing meanings negotiated authority and power respects differences, different participation creates critical reflections on experiences aims to develop social capital on-line classroom supportive atmosphere challenging disciplines

15 Consequences Flexibility in learning forms students and teachers together risking a double exclusion from the established academic structure struggling with interdisciplinarity establishing community of learning

16 Cognitive development Instead of Traditional- development argument Survival of the fittest Arrow- pointing towards development Building- hierarchical, progress based on rationality Rather Feminist-innovative and interconnected Collaboration, mutual support, cooperation, multilinear networks
