Blog 4-Module 4

Technology has changed the face of education in teaching and learning.  Students are using various technologies outside of the classroom on a daily basis.  Finding ways to incorporate these tools in the classroom can enhance teaching and learning.  Tools such as Skype, wikis, blogs, and online chat rooms can be utilized to video conference and offer a platform for students to communicate in a collaborative manner.  The internet coupled with other software programs and websites can provide additional resources for delivering content. Social media sites, email, and texting provide students and instructors the ability to communicate across different time zones and locations instantly.  These tools, when used properly can work well in a learning environment and offer many benefits to those in distance education.
