Abstract

Theories of elearning are not the extension of the theories of learning. Theories of learning are definitely valid in the elearning context too. Elearning theories are still being researched on. Elearning theories need to be dynamic and flexible to cope with the constant change. In this panel we will discuss those emerging and dynamic theories of elearning where people will get together and discuss to theorize elearning. We will argue about the theories such as framing theory (Hallanhan, 1999), connectivism (2005), transactional distance theory (Moore, 1993) and more as theories of elearning.
