“E” for Engaged: Energizing Student Engagement and Creativity with E-Learning Platforms
Abstract: This paper discusses challenges that arise when attempting to achieve student engagement and creativity using e-learning platforms. Within this context, different methods and tools for helping the teacher to better disseminate the information to be learned in digital formats that are attractive and stimulating to students are presented and critiqued. The discussion concludes with an examination of how teachers might use e-learning platforms to facilitate engaging, interesting content in different digital formats so as to raise academic performance, creativity and other learning outcomes. Furthermore, the new roles that teachers and students should adopt to facilitate the development of empowering educational experiences, implemented through e-learning platforms, are explored as well.
