  6. Trend 5: Learning Analytics Data are collected for analysis of

    “learning” – to make learning VISIBLE. 7
  7. Trend 6: Smart Learning Environments Learning spaces with seamless connectivity,

    technology integration and most importantly allows collaboration to takes place without difficulty. Trends: Maker’s Space, Co-Working Space 8
  8. Key Issues • Diversity (diverse background, influences) and disparity (urban

    vs rural, rich vs poor) • Accessibility • Lecturer and Student Readiness • Institutional Support (e.g. Unrealistic KPIs) 10

Activities/Tasks on eLEAP should not be redundant and overloaded Face-to-face sessions should be focused on active real- time engagement (with direct feedbacks)
  10. Key Takeaways • Gamification isn’t just about turning something into

    https://e- learning.zeef.com/kee-man.chuah • Ultimately, you choose the ones that can fulfill your needs or purposes. • Also, never forget to “flip the table” and let your students learn those tools. • Consider changing the “medium” or ways used for your assignments or (pre-, during- and post- class activities). 13
  12. Foster the principle of “learning by design” instead of “learning

    by chance”. Remember, we were given the trust to make a difference. If we’re in Education 4.0, then we should be Educator 4.1 14
