Learning Technologies and Digital Media (LTDM)
Teaching & Learning Experiences
Every digital learning design created in NTU is driven with the emphasis on student engagement. With this in mind, both the Virtual Adaptive & Distribution Learning Model (VADL) and NTULearn Ecosystem are vital to the delivery of learning solutions for learners.
The multi-dimensional mix of the VADL model allows us to cater to different demands of today’s learners and the change in learning landscape. Together with the NTULearn ecosystem, both are anchors to demonstrate the NTU Smart Campus vision to harness digital and technology enhanced solutions for higher education; enabling tailored hybrid learning, time efficiency, and empowering learners to construct and build upon existing knowledge – for there lies the true power of learning.
NTULearn, powered by Blackboard Learn, is the learning management system that hosts most of the NTU courses. It provides various communication and collaborative tools such as Announcements, Send Email, Discussion Board, Blogs, and Wikis to facilitate online teaching and learning. It also includes a comprehensive list of assignment and assessment tools such as Tests, Surveys, Assignments and Self and Peer Assessments which instructors can use to assess students' learning.
The NTULearn Ecosystem also comprises of other integrated learning systems and applications to foster an interactive and participative learning environment.
