Summary
Over the last two decades the adoption of ICT technology to support teaching and learning has created a blurring of the boundaries between different modes of learning. This has resulted in a loss of focus on the special needs of online distance learners. Adding to this, the majority of research into ICTs for teaching and learning focuses on first year on-campus students, providing little understanding of online learner's experiences. This project intends to investigate the online learner's voice in relation to the use of ICT for teaching and learning. It intends to develop an understanding of the spaces online learners use for learning and the ways in which they use technologies for learning in these spaces, including mobile and social networking technologies. The project intends to develop a Student Experience Kit (SEK) which will include policies, strategies and informed guidance for adopters and educators using ICTs for teaching and learning particularly in relation to online learners.
