The seminar is organised by CITE and HKUSPACE-Centre for Cyber Learning (CCL)About the Seminar The introduction of increasingly user-friendly web-based learner management systems have made it relatively easy for teachers to establish online environments for their classes. However, the simple creation of such environments does not ensure that the facilities are effectively used or that the online environments support student learning. In this seminar eight presenters from different courses at HKU will share their course designs and experiences of effective teaching and learning through eLearning.
