EDU8117 Networked and Global Learning

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


This course aims to critically examine the concept of communities of practice (COP) and the learning management in networked and global learning communities. By situating themselves within networked and global learning communities, learners will investigate, reflect and evaluate the growth and status of COP with reference to theories about the concept, structures and development stages of COP. Participants in this course will also explore and examine the tools and resources (e.g., open source learning management system (LMS), content management system (CMS), learning content management system (LCMS)) for building networked and global learning communities. By analyzing the learning management facilities and strategies, learners will design and implement the learning management to facilitate the growth of COP and learning within the networked and global learning communities.
