e Learning Breakthroughs
New technologies have brought about some well-documented transformations and challenges to teaching and learning by affecting how information is received, understood, and applied. The thoughtful and strategic inclusion of these new tools in e Learning environments can turn the once static learning approaches, in which learners are consumers of information, into dynamic, collaborative interactions. These interactions facilitate knowledge creation using higher levels of critical thinking and building multiple layers of technological skills.
For this Assignment, you will search the e Learning literature for seminal events that have categorically had an impact on the e Learning ecosystem. Then you will work within your Learning Community to determine the most pertinent events in the evolution of e Learning.

Seminal research findings
Significant changes in pedagogy
Major changes in educational delivery methods
Significant inventions that contributed to modes of instruction
Social and/or political events
Post the following to your Learning Community
