Exploring the Virtual Classroom: A case study of Malaysian and Honduran University Students

Sharon Jacqueline Wilson, Beatriz Lovo Reichmann

Abstract


The focus of this project is on the virtual global collaboration in the context of a teaching and learning environment that bridges the gap between two universities and groups of students in two continents. In an era of technological revolution educators must develop robust forms of teaching this would also mean allowing educators to create and explore new teaching methods creatively and using suitable and attractive tools or instruments to disseminate information whilst allowing students to create their own learning identities, reflect and question their own learning methods. While this project aimed at exploring possible use of technology in teaching and learning the findings revealed that the students and learners arrived at three core platforms. The study discovered that collaborative, social and personal platforms enhanced teaching and learning and inadvertently encouraged continuous learning beyond the classroom.
