Abstract

In order to promote a more dynamic and flexible channel of communication for students, a new interactive online e-learning system (Elluminate Live!) was piloted. This software represents a virtual learning environment and accommodates multiple learning styles through the use of collaborated communication. This comprises the use of web, audio, video, instant messaging, shared interactive whiteboard, and social networking. This paper adopts a qualitative approach, focusing on the reflections of participants (student and teacher) collated over a 12-month period of piloting online classes. This structured reflection process is seen as an appropriate learning guide for developing educational practice. Presented at the 2011 International Conference on Information Communication Technologies in Education.
