INTERNET for curriculum and learning environment

The Internet is the environment in which Joomla activities take place and is the environment in which the Joomla community of practice works, so the Internet is an integral part of the learning environment, not an enhancement.

The Internet provides tools that enhance learning Joomla through individual effort and collaborative effort. Screen-capture videos, with audio, provide a richer experience to the learner. Screen-sharing, with audio, facilitates all kinds of collaboration between learners, facilitators and experts.

The audience for learning Joomla may be relatively small at any given time or location. The Internet makes it possible to form cohorts of learners with similar needs and interests, even though they are widely dispersed, geographically speaking.

We found the exploration of the Joomla! space was a virtual adventure. Challenges and opportunities presented by new software Huge potential of the website construction software Challenges of having to hunt for help Open Source community -- willing to share but information not always organized


PDB, 04/13: learners motivated by need to create their own websites

PDB, 04/13: learning is situated, takes place in the environment that is the subject
