Abstract

Evaluating Web conferencing tools based on their ability to engage learners may provide better insight into the tools’ effectiveness for student learning. Researchers observed an online professional conference and recorded incidences of engaged learning using 25 indicators. The study found that web conferencing tools were effective in providing ways to engage learners through presentations, video, screen sharing, Web tours, interactive resources, polling, and chat. This research suggests benefits from examining educational events occurring in virtual learning environments through the lens of engaged learning. These environments can facilitate engagement by providing tools tailored to differing learning styles and levels of participation. Evaluating instructional technologies by their ability to engage learners enables HRD professionals to better distinguish the learning impact of the technology.
