Quote of the Day

“it is only in a complex dance between technologies and pedagogies that quality distance education emerges. The technology sets the beat and the timing. The pedagogy defines the moves.  Both the design and the technology morph in response to developments or changes in theory and technological affordances. Further, the creative energy and context created by the participants also effects the dance. As any change occurs, the dance is thrown out of synchronization and all parties adjust their activities and their plans to return to the creative flow of the dance. ”
