The E- Essentials of E-Content Development and E- Learning INTRODUCTION TO E-LEARNING Instructional Design Constructivism e-learning and LMS FOSS Tools & OER The power of MOODLE Electronic learning (or E-learning or E-learning) is a type of Technology Supported Education / learning (TSL) where the medium of instruction is through computer technology, particularly involving digital technologies. E-learning has been defined as "pedagogy empowered by digital technology". INTRODUCTION TO E- LEARNING NOTE: CLICK ON THE INDEX TO GO THE SECTION OF THE PRESENTATION

Its a technology driven and complex world where technology is the lifeblood of everyday life E-learning makes learning exciting, engaging and compelling. Learning is a social activity, powerful and enduring learning experiences can be achieved, not just through content, but through the use of online communities and networks. Learning through reflection and discussion-learners are encouraged to communicate, collaborate and share knowledge E – Learning is inclusive accommodating innumerable variables, yet providing learner autonomy.
HISTORY OF ID.. Instructional design (ID) models grew out of the teaching profession and came to fruition during World War II when the nation had to be quickly trained and troops mobilized to run the equipment of war. A combination of face-to-face, hands-on, individualized, and group units of instruction were developed by the armed forces using ID models to effectively train massive numbers of troops. Today there are many ID models- ADDIE, DICK- CAREY..
HOWEVER, ALL OF THEM SHARE SOME BASIC FEATURES: – Needs assessment – Goal and objective identification – Audience and setting analysis – Content and delivery development – Evaluation and redesign click
NCF 05 AND CONSTRUCTIVISM Constructivism is an approach to teaching based on research about how people learn. Many researchers say that each individual constructs knowledge rather than receiving it from others. It is also called the 5E Model- (continued…)
SHIFT FROM PRODUCT TO PROCESS NCF 05 focuses on the methods,approaches and strategies a learner uses in manipulating a learning task rather than cramming pieces of information (rote memory) They know enough who know how to learn. Henry Adams
