The organisation that I have decided to look into in terms of the use of digital learning technologies is Bethlehem Tertiary Institute, as my sister is currently studying there.
The three main digital learning technologies which she listed as being used in her classes are discussion forums, powerpoint presentations and online quizzes.
Discussion forums – these are used as a space for the students to discuss with each other what they are learning and for them to ask each other for help. It also serves as a method for students to communicate with their lecturer.
PowerPoint Presentations – these are used in classes as a teaching tool, to convey information to students. PowerPoint Presentations mean that information can be taught in a way which combines text with multimedia elements such as photos and videos. If used correctly, it be a very effective way of teaching, but if not it can be very disengaging.
Online Quizzes – these are used as a form of self-assessment, which students can use to gauge their learning and determine what it is that they still need to work on.
