Rapid E-learning - Is it more Behaviorist or Constructivist based?
During my graduate studies, I learned about all the various learning theories and principals. After all was said and done there appeared to be only two camps; the behaviorists such as BF Skinner and the Constructivist such as Seymour Papert. Over the past couple weeks I have read a lot of posts and I'm starting to get the impression that a lot of rapid e-learning is grounded in behaviorism where the end result is measure with a likert exam.What do you think? Is rapid e-learning mainly following in the steps of BF Skinner and Pavlov's dog or is it turning more towards the constructivism style of approach? Do you feel as I do that it's the materials being presented that dictates which learning style is incorporated into e-learning? Tell me what you think because inquiry minds want to know.
