COVID-19 is changing our lives and how universities do education. Educational institutions worldwide have been struggling with how to adapt to this reality. Our initial priority is to support the faculty to facilitate the development of their fully online and blended-learning courses using educational technology so that they are better prepared to rise to the challenge of providing quality education within a restricted environment.
There are two components to educational technology or edtech for short.
Educational Technology (concept)
The study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources (Januszewski & Molenda, 2013, p. 1).
Educational Technology (practice):
Combines digital technology with educational theory and practice to facilitate learning and improve performance (Kennedy, 2018).
