Learning Technologies: How, what and where?

Over the years you may have heard many terms, including computer-assisted learning, e-learning, blended learning, and technology enabled learning, to name a few. The common denominator being learning. Educational Technologies/ Learning Technologies refers to the “broad range of communication, information, and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching and assessment.”[1] These also include the systems, networks and databases required to support the various forms of technology that are used by lecturers and students on a daily basis.

In the Stellenbosch University context, the support and delivery of effective Learning Technology Systems requires the collaborative effort of a number of individuals who work across Faculties and Support services. We realise that as a lecturer, administrative officer or student, what you really want to know is who to contact when you need help, and what the help is that you may ask for.

  1. The Learning Management System (SUNLearn)
  2. SUNStream
  3. Project management for new system development
  4. Microsoft Teams for educational purposes
  5. SUNOnline (the short course Learning Management System)
  6. Student feedback system
