ISJ Spring 2021: E-Learning: Implications for educators in China / Ahmed Hussain
Education systems across the globe are committed to extended periods of e-learning. That is, facilitating student learning and development through a wide range of digital platforms and remote input by teachers. Yet education systems in China rarely undertake extended periods of e-learning. Therefore, the current situation provides an opportunity to explore the experience in the context of students and teachers.
This article is a study into e-learning from the perspectives of students and teachers in five schools. The study begins with a review of principles of learning, the practice of e-learning is after all a process for facilitating learning remotely. It may be assumed, during a phase of e-learning that learning will not occur at a pace akin to that in schools. This assertion links to what we understand about learning.
