PEDAGOGICAL FRAMEWORKS AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR ONLINE NETWORK LABORATORY INSTRUCTION - Research issues in matching technology to pedagogical processes

Shyamala Sivakumar

Abstract

We investigate the technological issues involved in designing an electronic learning system that adapts pedagogical approaches and best practice instructional strategies to model, design and implement a blended virtual learning space. We discuss technology issues that are challenging in the design and implementation of a modular integrated web environment (IWE) used to deliver online network laboratory learning. We show that the IWE must incorporate an online laboratory tutorial system for guided practice to elicit performance from the learner. Also, the learning space must be designed to match the quality of service (QoS) requirements to the interaction taking place in the learning space and the characteristics of the delivery media must be matched to learning process. This approach promotes good student interaction & infrastructure management.
