Incorporating the Experiential Learning Cycle into Online Classes
Based on a case study built upon an introductory digital media class in a large urban school, this case study explores the relationship between ee-learning, a combination of experiential and e-learning, and technological integration in online higher education classes. By incorporating the experiential learning theory proposed by Kolb (1984), which elaborates upon John Dewey’s notion of continuity of experience and interaction, the author contributes to the understanding of the roles of direct media experiences in online learning environments and proposes a useful model for teachers designing online technology courses. The ee-learning theory helps to address the wide variation of technological skills among students that instructors of online classes encounter.
