Book Summary:

This book provides contemporary insights into learning outcomes arising from the use of learning platforms by pupils, students and teachers in schools. Most current research focuses on the implementation of learning platforms, and the ways in which practices are developing over time, or in specific contexts. This collection offers a range of contrasting but complementary perspectives in this area, including an exploration of applications supporting management of learning across primary and secondary schools in the UK, an in-depth case study of uses and outcomes in a school in Singapore, an analysis of learning outcomes arising across primary, special and secondary schools in one local authority in the UK, and a look at student preferences for using a learning platform in a school in Taiwan. The volume sheds important light on the subject, but with the ever changing development and introduction of learning platforms, much remains to be explored. Indeed, it is likely that learning platforms will evolve further with affordances and integrated features being added over the next five and more years. This work hints at future practices and their potential outcomes, pointing to the need for greater detail being gathered through future research studies, in order to understand ways teachers and learners might most effectively benefit from more holistic or ‘blended’ approaches across the applications provided. This book will not only be of particular interest to those involved in using learning platforms, but also to those advising on, and developing, learning platforms. Key lessons and issues are of relevance to policy makers, school managers and teachers, educational advisers, researchers and developers. This book was originally published as a special issue of Learning, Media and Technology.

Book Summary:

The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the teaching-learning experience dramatically, creating an opportunity for new online and blended learning techniques and tools. This has also added a new dimension to practices and methods already adopted for achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) within education. This requires a new paradigm shift in the teaching-learning process through the systemic and pragmatic assessment of student learning outcomes so that employability skills and competence can be developed in students for competing at the global level. Development of Employability Skills Through Pragmatic Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes discusses the best practices in the assessment of student learning objectives (SLOs), the mapping of SLOs, and the ways of developing employability skills in young minds so that SDGs may be achieved. It elaborates the theory, practice, and importance of developing employability skills through research-based learning. Covering topics such as graduate employability, outcome-based education, and technical undergraduate programs, this premier reference source is an essential resource for employers, libraries, students and educators of higher education, faculty and administration of higher education, pre-service teachers, government organizations, business leaders and managers, human resource managers, researchers, and academicians.

Book Summary:

This book presents different perspectives of online business education - how it is designed, delivered and how it supports advances in management disciplines. The authors describe online platforms in their provision of timely, excellent and relevant business education. The book starts by examining the emergence of online business education. It offers insights for use to business educators in design and implementation of online learning. It presents and discusses technologies for class facilitation and collaboration including tools used to bring content and issues to life. Disruptive approaches and new directions in online business education are examined. The book is ideal for business educators, administrators, as well as business practitioners that have an interest in delivering high quality business education using online platforms and tools. On the Line: Business Education in the Digital Age is divided into three sections. Section 1 presents papers on “why” business education is viable and sustainable in today’s context. Treating education as a service, this section describes new techniques for creating a better online business education experience. It also looks at the role advanced data analytics can play in enhancing the quality of online business education. Section 2 delves into “how” online business education works. It presents conceptual models for teaching in specific disciplines, learning design that describes what business educators do and how programs work. This section also addresses performance assessments and quality assurance measures that help to demonstrate the efficacy of online pedagogy. Practical applied papers are used in this section to highlight the use of learning platforms, tools and their application specific to businesses that build knowledge and skills and make students ‘work ready’. Finally Section 3 of the book addresses the “so what?” or the outcomes and impacts of online business education. This section targets where business education needs to take learning next, for example to support sustainable business, ethical decision making and inclusive and collaborative leadership. Chapters deal with topics such as how distributed online environments may work better to support knowledge and soft skill building directly relevant for organizations today. Other learning outcomes showing the value of online business education are discussed. Academics, alumni and consultants from over fifteen institutions and organizations around the world contributed to this book.

Book Summary:

This book addresses the importance of human factors in optimizing the learning and training process. It reports on the latest research and best practices, and discusses key principles of behavioral and cognitive science, which are extremely relevant to the design of instructional content and new technologies to support mobile and multimedia learning, virtual training and web-based learning, among others, as well as performance measurements, social and adaptive learning and many other types of educational technology, with a special emphasis on those important in the corporate, higher education, healthcare and military training contexts. Gathering contributions to the AHFE 2020 Virtual Conference on Human Factors in Training, Education, and Learning Sciences, held on July 16–20, 2020, the book offers a timely perspective on the role of human factors in education. It highlights important new approaches and ideas, and fosters new discussions on how to optimally design learning experiences.

Book Summary:

Nowadays, with the increasing use of digital technologies, especially for teenagers, privacy education plays an important role in their lives. While several e-learning platforms for privacy awareness training have been implemented, they are typically based on traditional learning techniques. In particular, these platforms do not allow students to cooperate and share knowledge with each other in order to achieve mutual benefits and improve learning outcomes. In other words, they lack student-student interaction. Recent research on learning methods shows that the collaboration among students can result in better learning outcomes compared to other learning approaches. Motivated by the above-mentioned facts, and since privacy domain is strongly linked to the social lives of teens, there is a pressing need for providing a collaborative learning platform for teaching privacy, and at the same time, allows students to share knowledge, interact with each other, solve quizzes collaboratively, and discuss privacy issues and situations. For this purpose, this work proposes "Teens-online", a collaborative e-learning platform for privacy awareness. The curriculum provided in this platform is based on the Personal Data Protection Competency Framework for School Students. Moreover, the proposed platform is equipped with a partner-matching mechanism based on matching game theory. This mechanism guarantees a stable student-student matching according to a student's need (behavior and/or knowledge). Thus, mutual benefits will be attained by minimizing the chances of cooperating with incompatible students. Experimental results show that the average learning-related utility obtained by applying the proposed partner-matching algorithm is much higher than the average utility obtained using other matching mechanisms. The results also suggest that by adopting the proposed approach, each student can be paired with their optimal partners, which in turn helps them reach their highest learning outcomes.
