How to Use Technology in Educational Innovation
The Internet and new easy-to-use software have transformed the educational paradigm from the traditional lecture and grand rounds in person to lecture attendance and learning online. Web-based education is more than just another delivery vehicle. It provides a new opportunity to provide distance learning, collaboration in either real time or asynchronously, incorporate rich multimedia and other visuals to illustrate teaching points, and assessment of the learner’s progress. Programming skills and computer savvy are no longer necessary but key attention to instructional design and content is critical. Many Web-based educational creations are now evaluated and promoted as scholarly activity.
