Abstract

Extreme learning explores how people learn or teach with technology in unusual or unique ways outside traditional educational settings. In an age of open education where anyone can learn anything from anyone else at any time, Internet technology has greatly contributed to extreme learning. But research on how Web-based extreme learning has improved human life and promoted human learning is relatively scant. This paper is a report on the findings of a study based on 135 websites collected by research group members and the ratings of these websites based on eight criteria. Twenty high ranking websites were analyzed to see what and how technology tools are employed to the improvement of extreme learning.
