Blog Assignment: Evaluating and Identifying Online Resources

The second resource I chose is straight out of the Walden University Library. It’s actually a research paper on the benefits of transfixing traditional learning methods into an eLearning environment. This research paper talks about the learning theories that are used in the physical classroom. What is learned through these traditional methods for the class was applied towards an eLearning community. The author August Tsai researches how the use of a proposed hybrid eLearning course could work if the learning considered the individuals strengths and weaknesses. Here we discover there are some limitations in the classroom that are not evident in an eLearning community. Learning materials and supplements to learning are recorded and used as digital content. In the end, this is a win-win situation. There are great opportunities for improving upon conventional teaching and learning methods in a traditional classroom. There are a great deal of endless learning and invention when it comes to integrating these learning theories into a digital realm.
