eLearning, Web 2.0, Educational Technology, Online/Distance Education, Faculty Development, and more…

In Diana Oblinger’s video welcome at the ELI meeting, she suggests that the term “eLearning” be replaced with an updated term which she calls “Connected Learning.” I do think we need a better term to describe online/distance learning but I’m not sure  if connected learning will catch on.

Below is link to Tuesday’s opening ELI General Session where Diana makes her pitch for “Connected Learning” as well as a great talk from Vincent Tinto from Syracuse University titled “Student Success Does Not Arise by Chance.”
