This course has been cancelled due to low enrollment.

We recommend EDST 643 or EDST 648 being offered Spring 2013. Both are one unit, fully online courses.

This one unit topic course engages learners in the critical analysis of how eBook technologies can contribute to learning and teaching. Topics include purpose, instructional design, and effective development for use with a learning environment; use of digital technology to design media enhanced content tapping into students¹ social and learning needs through the use of mobile tools such as iPADS, tablets, smart phones and other handheld devices.
