This was the final module for the course and for me, it was the most difficult. Though I understood the concepts, I seemed to have trouble applying them in my written work and demonstrating my understanding to the instructor. I also misunderstood the wiki instructions, as I thought I was to use the conference discussions and objectives to describe for learning experience. So here I go...

Typoologies are the peramieters use to describe something. For the purpose of this course, it was distance education. Within the conference area and group areas we discussed the institutional model and the modes that classify DE schools. We studied and discussed these modes and found schools for various areas in the world that fit into them. If the instructions were followed properly, you should have 6 schools and 5 modes. GIving examples and definitions of each.

Single vs Dual
industrialized teaching methods more experimentation or specially made for the school
Created on a large scale Little use of technology
traditional school DE done on a small scale
focus on reproducting knowledge focuses on creating new knowledge

The major difference is that single modes schools add the DE component to reach students, dual modes schools incorporate their programs into a DE format to provide quality education.

Mixed vs. Consortia
hybrid, blended, online mutiple schools
reading and writing reading and writing
central locatin for staff staff specific to programs

The main difference in the two, is that mixed offers everything to reach more students in one location, where consortia works with multiple schools to reach more students. Another notable trend is towards more object-based, contextual, or activity-based models of learning.
