Summary
Education has become the number one demanded commodity for social and economic transformation for both developing and developed economies. Thus the number of persons going and returning to school has become too big to be handled by existing brick and mortar learning institutions. Besides, the majority of lifelong learners do not have the time to become full-time students. Distance education is becoming the solution to the aforementioned challenges. It has been defined as the mode of study where the learner is separated in time and space from the institution and tutors providing the tuition.

Integrating Facebook into Distance Education and Online Learning Environments: To Promote Interactive Online Learning Communities

Summary

Enrollment in distance Education (DE) and online learning environments (OLE) has increased because of advances in information and communications technologies (ICT), changing economic times, and the desire to improve skills. Simultaneously, completion rates of DE and online learning have seen a decline (Xu & Jaggers, 2011). According to Xu and Jaggers (2011), this may be due to feelings of isolation and lack of support, motivation, and time. DE and online learning require high levels of interactivity and good social presence, modeling face-to-face (F2F) environments. Facebook was examined because of its enormous user base, ease of use, and its potential to build online communities. An online instructional module about integrating a Facebook Group Page was developed for university-level educators of DE and OLE. Keller’s ARCS Model of Motivation informed the design. Findings revealed that educators are interested in Facebook, but remain skeptical about its place in education. Many enjoyed the module and performed well, but suggested more interactivity, examples of successful classroom implementation, and information about privacy and self-disclosure. Further research about educators' attitudes of social media in education is needed, as well as, a better understanding of the factors required for a social media to be more appealing and education-worthy.

Learning at a Distance: Engaged or Not?

Summary

Distance learning is the fastest growing segment of postsecondary education. Almost 3 million students took at least one online course in fall 2005, an increase of more than 800,000 over the previous year (Allen and Seaman 2006). At the same time, questions persist about the quality of online learning. In one recent study, about two-fifths of senior academic officers at U.S. degree-granting higher education institutions expressed a belief that distance learning is inferior to face-to-face learning (Allen and Seaman 2006). Although some studies show that distance education learners benefit from their experiences to the same degree as campus-based learners (Dutton, Dutton, and Perry 2002; Neuhauser 2002), most of the work demonstrating positive outcomes in distance learning has focused on older students, who are often more motivated and have the self-discipline to manage effectively the unstructured nature of the distance learning environment (Dibiase 2000; Hardy and Boaz 1997).
