Experimentation of e-Learning in Undergraduate Teaching based on Interactive Web Technologies
In Document 304/211, HKU clearly articulates that its aim of e-Learning strategy is “to enhance student learning through effective use of technologies”. In order to test and evaluate the effectiveness of various measures of e-Learning in undergraduate teaching and learning, from 2011 to 2013, a research team led by Dr. Yan Xiaojun conducted experimentation in three undergraduate courses. These experiments involved the testing and evaluation of the following e-Learning measures: (1) the use of interactive online course portal; (2) the use of interactive course discussion forum; (3) the use of course blog and; (4) the use of social media network. The research team explored the possibility and ways in which interactive web technologies can be utilized in undergraduate teaching and learning; (2) evaluated the impact of interactive web technologies on the quality of outcome based teaching and learning; (3) assessed the role of interactive web technologies in contributing to experiential learning; and (4) explored possibility in renovating the course-based online teaching platform with increased capability in interactive learning and experiential learning.
