In this Learning to Teach Online http://bit.ly/d18ac5 episode we look at two different types of online learning environments: a centralised Learning Management System (LMS), and free open access social media (such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc). We discuss the benefits of each and highlight some important issues that need to be considered when using each of them.

I use these videos in the e-learning module of the University of Bristol's Teaching and Learning in Higher Education programme. Part of the module allows academics to explore areas of e-learning that interest them, and this excellent selection of video case studies offers a range of examples of practice. Staff can explore individual cases which they are encouraged to analyse in terms of why technology is being used, what are the benefits and potential issues. This reflection is then used to help inform their own planning of a technology-enhanced learning activity.License: Australian Learning and Teaching Council ©2011
