Collaborating in eLearning

In the Fall of 2018, I took Dr. Covelli’s e-learning course at the University of St. Francis in Illinois. Before this course, I hadn’t participated in “collaborating” assignments since high school. It was a hard experience for me since I have become so accustomed to

working solely on my own time and producing my own work. Though this was hard, I was forced to work on the time of others and learning that two different types of work can come together to create something bigger.

Collaborating in eLearning is a great way to access an online learning program and course. According to the article that I found, collaboration is also a great way to boost active participation in online learning. One way the article suggests is by incorporating social media. That is just one example; this article describes 8 different ways to incorporate collaboration into online learning.

This article actually gave me a better understanding of what it means to access a student’s learning. I would suggest this article to anyone who needed to understand what this means. I found nothing I didn’t like about this article. The article also provides an audio version to listen along with the reading.
