Abstract

Rapid development of personal computers and expansion of the internet have changed the way learning and teaching occurs in classrooms. The use of online resources has certainly gained increasing popularity among school teachers; however, haphazard adoption of online resources by teachers has been reported. This presentation reports the case study of primary school teachers who, experienced the preparation and implementation of elearning, made use of an online resource-based learning environment framework for an inquiry lesson about weather and human body. The challenges facing teachers as well as students in using online resources and the opportunities for the creation of online resource-based learning environments to enhance teaching will be discussed.
