You are asked to prepare for this week’s Discussion by investigating the Walden University Library and the Internet for technology solutions applicable to online learning. Consider the following questions as you prepare for this Discussion:
What are two emerging technologies (not mentioned in the Learning Resources) that are growing in popularity today?
Which do you think might be most effective in promoting or enhancing online learning?
What are the benefits and challenges of implementing these technologies in an online learning environment?
What factors (computer processing speeds, bandwidth, operating system compatibility, ADA compliance, etc.) should be considered before implementing these technologies in an online learning environment?
How could these tools be implemented to optimize learning for adults?
You can search the Walden Library for articles and other resources that discuss emerging technologies. A sample search is provided below.
