Edutainment: The Convergence of Online Learning and Social Media

Date: April 27, 2021
Time: 12PM - 1PM
COVID-19 has resulted in all educational institutions implementing some form of online teaching. With a little over a year of hard-earned experiences to share, we can observe the similarities and differences between how students interact within an online learning environment and social media platform. Specific tools and page architecture distinguish online learning from social media, and yet we can witness an evolution in distance learning borrowing from social media in order to engage its audience with familiar tools and settings which have been embedded in an internet-savvy culture.

  2. Examples
  3. A Brief History
  4. The Great Pause
  5. The New Norm
  6. Some Predictions
