Networked learning is a form of online learning that utilizes technology to connect individuals or groups and allows for the transfer of information between educator(s) and learner(s). Networked learning supports remote learning and is often more efficient for higher learning institutions to launch, as information can be disseminated from a central information hub.
Networked learning refers to a method of collaborative internet-based education whereby learners can connect with resources, teachers and other students. Massive open online courses (or MOOCs) utilize networked learning methods to relay information from one person to groups of learners. Networked learning can be used in both institutionalized and informal settings.
