Teaching time investment: Does online really take more time than face-to-face? Rebecca Van de Vord and Korolyn Pogue Washington State University, USA Abstract Enrollments in online programs are growing, increasing demand for online courses. The perception that teaching online takes more time than teaching face-to-face creates concerns related to faculty workload.

Four Inventive Games That Show Us the Future of Learning By Tanner Higgin, Graphite I think of contemporary art as a kind of futurism.

Online social networks as formal learning environments: Learner experiences and activities George Veletsianos and Cesar C. Navarrete University of Texas at Austin, USA Abstract While the potential of social networking sites to contribute to educational endeavors is highlighted by researchers and practitioners alike, empirical evidence on the use of such sites for formal online learning is scant. To fill this gap in the literature, we present a case study of learners’ perspectives and experiences in an online course taught using the Elgg online social network. Findings from this study indicate that learners enjoyed and appreciated both the social learning experience afforded by the online social network and supported one another in their learning, enhancing their own and other students’ experiences.
