Ranges from:supported learning blended / hybrid learning learning that occurs 100% online.Sound e-learning is founded on instructional design principles pedagogical elements that take into account learning theories.Given its nature, online distance education is well matched with e-learning and flexible learning but is also used for in-class teaching and blended learning.</p><p>A holistic, pedagogically led approach to enhancing learning with digital technologies Sound e-learning is founded on instructional design principles pedagogical elements that take into account learning theories.Integration within the universitys academic community and organisational infrastructure. 'pedagogy first, technology second' approach is essential for success (Wade, 2002). integration of the support needed by an aspiring academic within a university (e.g. technology assistance, pedagogic advice/training, materials design and development assistance, and administration). Soft factors are also required for effective innovation, such as time and reward for Academics to develop e-learning resources and cultural change to list a few (Somekh, 1998).Should be developed according to course and learner needsInline with current teaching methods </p><p>*EthosEncouraging and Supporting student responsibility for learningIncreasing flexibility for student participationIncreasing student engagement and interactivity in learningAccommodating diverse range of learners</p><p>Organisation of eLearning SupportIntegrated (pedagogy and technology) support centres</p><p>Technologies and PlatformsVirtual learning Environments (WebCT, Blackboard Moodle, SAKAI), Student Portals, Assessment Tools, Plagiarism Tools (Turn-It-In),Design and Development Tools (DreamWeaver, Flash, Articulate, Camtasia, Adobe Presenter, etc</p><p>*You may want to remove this slide*</p><p>Open AccessThe Open Access research literature is composed of free, online copies of peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers as well as technical reports, theses and working papers. In most cases there are no licensing restrictions on their use by readers. They can therefore be used freely for research, teaching and other purposes.
