1 The Ferl Practitioners’ Programme Transforming Teaching and Learning with ILT R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

2 R4.3

3 Towards a Definition of E-learning There is no one final definition of e-learning Here we present an evolving definition that tries to encompass the multitude of ways in which electronic media and resources can enable and support effective teaching and learning Each of these ways can be seen as a set of opportunities to meet the differing needs of individual learners We need first to clarify the differences between IT and ICT and what we mean by ILT R4.3

4 Towards a Definition of E-learning refers to the stand-alone items of computing technology and the skill required to use them effectively refers to the connecting together of IT hardware to enable communication with other users, through robust networks, both within and beyond an institution Information and learning technology (ILT) is defined as the application of IT/ICT to running the core business of sixth form and further education colleges - learning and teaching - as well as the management of the learning environment and of business systems Information and communication technology (ICT) Information technology (IT) Information and learning technology (ILT) R4.3

5 Towards a Definition of E-learning A working definition of E-learning? E-learning consists of a set of opportunities that meet the differing needs of individual learners using a variety of electronic media, resources and technologies R4.3

6 Supporting learning Activity outside scheduled learning that complements or supports the main programme, eg research on the Web, reinforcement or revision exercises, additional practice, peer and tutor communication. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

7 Traditional teaching tools Supporting learning Supplementing and supporting traditional teaching, eg using PowerPoint as OHP, data projectors and interactive whiteboards for simple display, spreadsheets or handouts from a word processor. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

8 Traditional teaching tools Blended learning Supporting learning Bringing together traditional resources with ILT-based opportunities to create a coherent planned approach, across a whole programme or towards a given learning outcome. Blended learning may reach out to a more direct engagement with learner-support services than is customary with traditional approaches. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

9 Traditional teaching tools Blended learning Supporting learning Differentiated pace Using ILT to enable individuals to proceed at their own pace through the common programme, with ILT supporting the process of facilitating individual practitioner support and tracking the progress of individual learners. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

10 Traditional teaching tools Blended learning Supporting learning Differentiated pathway Differentiated pace Using ILT to enable the planning and delivery of an agreed individualised pathway for each learner, with ILT supporting the process of tracking individual progress and facilitating individual tutor support. Such a pathway may benefit from the blended use of other resources, including access to taught sessions. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

11 Traditional teaching tools Blended learning Supporting learning Differentiated pathway Anytime learning Differentiated pace Enabling learners to access some or all elements of their learning at any time that computers are available. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

12 Traditional teaching tools Blended learning Remote learning: anytime, anywhere Supporting learning Differentiated pathway Anytime learning Differentiated pace The only way to guarantee access to learning at any and all times is to enable access when college premises are closed. This demands remote access and would typically be supported by on-line peer and staff communication. R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

13 Traditional Blended Anytime Anywhere Supporting learning Diff pathway Anytime Diff pace Less direct practitioner contact More learner autonomy More reliance on materials and non-F2F support Moving towards... R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

14 Traditional Blended Anytime Anywhere Supporting learning Diff pathway Anytime Diff pace From bad to better to best? ….…….. no, absolutely not! R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

15 Traditional Blended Anytime Anywhere Supporting learning Diff pathway Anytime Diff pace Strands 1 and 2 Strand 4 Strands 3 and 5 R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning

16 Traditional teaching tool Blended learning Remote learning: anytime, anywhere Supporting learning Differentiated pathway Anytime learning Differentiated pace It’s about selecting the most appropriate opportunity for the learner at a given time R4.3 Towards a Definition of E-learning
