Technology Enhanced Learning: Experiences of ECO Member Countries

10th International Conference on e-Learning and e-Teaching (ICeLeT 2023)

March 1, 2023

ECO Science Foundation (ECOSF) in partnership with E-learning Association of Iran (YADA) plans to host a virtual session on Technology Enhanced Learning: Experience of the ECO Member Countries on March 1st, 2023 during the 10th International Conference on e-Learning and e-Teaching (ICeLeT 2023) which is being hosted by University of Shiraz, Iran 

Technology enhanced learning (TEL), or e-learning refers to the use of technology to support and enhance the learning process. TEL usually take many forms, including the use of online platforms, virtual classrooms, educational software, and mobile applications. TEL can be used to support various forms of learning, including traditional face-to-face instruction, distance learning, and self-directed learning.

The potential benefits of TEL and e-learning applications include the ability to reach a wider audience, provide flexible learning options, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the learning process. However, it is important to note that TEL or e-learning is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and its effectiveness depends on a variety of factors, including the specific technology being used, the learning context, and the learner's needs and preferences.

The ECOSF Virtual Session during ICeLeT 2023 will bring together experts from around the ECO Member Countries to share their insights and experiences on the latest developments in technology-enhanced learning in their respective Member Countries. It is important recognize that use of TEL and e-learning tools and delivery is still limited, whereby not many academic or research institutions and universities in the ECO region are equipped with right tools and devices; or hold the adequate technical capacity to implement the TEL or e-Learning framework in their respective institutions.   

The virtual session will provide the opportunity to diverse audience representing policy makers, academician, research scholars and students to generate a dialogue and discussion on ideas on the adoption of e-learning and future of TEL in the respective ECO Member Countries.

Invited speakers would share their experiences, latest developments in TEL in the ECO region. Speakers would also be encouraged to present key opportunities and challenges in this TEL space, and we would welcome any recommendations for policy makers to promote e-learning in the ECO region.
