Overcoming Challenges in Online Learning: Perspectives from Asia and Africa
This book examines four distinct areas of education that suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in Asian and African regions, and tackles the challenges and barriers that came as a result of the shift to online learning. Presenting perspectives from China, Malaysia, Nigeria, and the UAE, chapters frame research within the context of "innovation experiences" to explore transformative learning theory, and set out the ways in which leaders, educators, students, and parents adapted to learning during the pandemic. Foregrounding four central topics (challenges and barriers; teaching and learning; assessment; educational technology; and interactive learning environments), the volume provides globally relevant findings and implications for the effects of the pandemic on learning in these regions, and furthers the field of educational technology more broadly. Topics covered range from teaching and leading in the online learning environment to educational technology and the interactive learning space. Sharing innovative experiences to aid progression and share best practice for online learning moving forward, the book will be highly relevant to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of higher education, online and eLearning, and technology in education.
