Relearning to E-learn: Strategies for Electronic Learning and Knowledge

Front Cover
Academic Monographs, 2004 - Education - 199 pages
1 Review
Communications and learning in the electronic environment are examined in this work. Many of the problems associated with the newness of e-learning are addressed and juxtaposed to the diverse approaches to e-learning adopted by the academic, government, corporate, and community sectors. The argument that education is the fundamental purpose of e-learning is made, calling for an emphasis on human interaction rather than end goals. Organizations are advised to develop a clear rationale for adopting e-learning that takes into account the benefits and limitations of e-learning and focuses on process, not technology.
