This project is developing an existing innovation and tool (AcademicTalk) that successfully supports synchronous online educational argumentation for open and distance learners (hereafter ODLs). This current application is being developed into a transportable, re-usable and adaptable tool that can be used in a range of educational contexts to realise structured, and yet tailored and flexible pedagogical approaches to dialogical learning. This will lead to benefits for a wide range of learners.
Aims and Objectives
- To develop a technically robust and quality interoperable e-learning application - AcademicTalk_2
- To integrate additional interface features that improve the usability of the existing tool
- To develop a web-based environment supporting, managing and pedagogically adapting the use of AcademicTalk_2, making it suitable for different learning contexts.
