I gave a presentation “Creating an Online Course Based on E-Learning 2.0 Concepts” at the 2011 TxDLA 14th Annual Confernce in San Antonio, Texas last week. I want to take the opportunity to share my presentation here with my blog subscribers. This presentation provided an overview of e-learning 2.0 concepts and described the process of designing, developing, and teaching an online course based on e-learning 2.0 concepts. Also, lessons learned and students’ feedback regarding their opinions and experiences on taking my online courses based on e-learning 2.0 concepts were discussed in the presentation. Below is an online version of my presentation at the 2011 TxDLA Conference. Please feel free to provide suggestions and comments. Thanks.

The advent of Web 2.0 technologies allows teachers to empower students and create exciting new learning opportunities. Students can use Web 2.0 tools to create, contribute, share, collaborate, connect, and participate in a global learning community. Already, many teachers took advantages of Web 2.0 technologies and implemented them into teaching and learning. However, many researchers have found that perceived usefulness, or the extent to which an individual believes that the use of technology will enhance performance, has a positive influence on behavioral intention. Thus, studies of teachers’ perceptions and interests are critical because teachers’ perceptions are significant to the implementation of technology innovations in teaching and learning.
Yesterday, I gave a presentation on our recent research study at the 2011 Creating Futures Through Technology Conference in Biloxi, Mississippi. In this presentation, my co-presenter, Patrivan Yuen and I discussed the findings of our study that examined Mississippi teachers’ perceptions, interests, and use of Web 2.0 tools in education. The population of this study was Mississippi teachers at all levels. Participants at the MECA and CFTTC conferences in 2010 were invited to participate in the study. A total of 368 participants completed the questionnaire online.
