This Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) has been designed as a resource for educators planning to incorporate technologies in their teaching and learning activities. HETL has been developed for a workshop delivered to Athabasca University faculty and reflects several years work with Peter Tittenberger at the Learning Technologies Centre at University of Manitoba.
Distance and online universities such as Athabasca, are well positioned to play a bridging role between tradition and emergence in transforming higher education. Universities that recognize the value of online learning and are able to "get the model right" will be well positioned to respond creatively to developing change pressures.
To extend the dialogue on the concepts expressed in this book, and to ensure information is current, this wiki has been set up to solicit feedback, contributions, reactions, and present updates.
