For three decades and longer we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many ways and at most institutional sites, education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education.

Very practical course. some concepts are a little difficult to grasp at first, but once I understood, i could see how powerful these knowledge are when applied.
I appreciated the well-organized format and overall the way the course was designed. Particularly the opportunity to choose our own areas of focus for assignments to learn more.
Interesting framework and course set up. As someone who is looking to optimize his learning process, this has been valuable to me.
The course provides a thought provoking review of the learning best practice and highlights some potential areas where technology will better enable us to implement this best practice.
