e-Learning is now an essential component of education. Globalization, the proliferation of information available on the Internet and the importance of knowledge-based economies have added a whole new dimension to teaching and learning. As more tutors, students and trainees, and institutions adopt online learning there is a need for resources that will examine and inform this field.
A good book for anyone considering the pros and cons of E-Learning. A very comprehensive book that makes you think and assess the direction of learning in the future.
This has been useful in supporting the teaching practices on the PGCE course as it has helped to understand the theories behind e-learning and also to put them into practice.
A really helpful guide through the jargon, pitfalls & benefits.
This is an excellent book and Holmes and Gardners promotion of communal contructivism fits perfectly with the framework of our ILT Diploma and its emphasis on collaborating, contributing and adding to our bank of knowledge and skills as each cohort graduates on the programme.
I really like the content of this book. I will suggest this book to my students to read as optional to gain their knowledge about e-learning.
I really appreciate for your supports.
With the rapid development of e-Learning as an essential component of education, there is a need to suitable resourse.
This provides an in-depth examination e-learning approaches, along with consideratio of the potential implications of utilising e-learning in education.
excellent document, very informative and succint
Chapter 2 is helpful in communicating to students the usefulness of the intergration of e-learning within their course of study.
I found this to be a most useful text and one I would recommend as supplementary material
An excellent read related to the different types of learning approaches using technology.
A super book which you are able to dip in and dip out of. This book is ideal for any course which incorporates ICT/E-learning into the curriculum. Some interesting chapters about e-learning theories and suggestions for further research. I found it especially useful for the PGCE and BAHonours in Education programmes. Well recommended.
This book has been written in a way that anyone new to e-learning can understand what it’s all about. The ‘boxes’ with activities and websites to view are really useful – they help bring the concepts to life and put theory into practice. The text is a decent size and there is plenty of white space on the page which makes the reading of the chapters comfortable. The inclusion of theories is a bonus and not too off-putting. This book will be a bonus to all our trainee teachers who will be using e-learning in their practice.
I found this to be a most useful text that I would recommend as supplementary material for DTLLS students. It would be of particular use for the Level 5 Option Unit on Resources.
I very much liked Chapter 5 - theory of e-learning, I thought this would be of use to DTLLS students for Unit 5 - personal and professional development.
The activity boxes for each Chapter were of relevance however, there is a risk that these will go out of date quickly as the web changes.
Overall the book was clearly set out and accessible for all trainee teachers.
This is a useful supplementary text for trainees wishing to get to grips with aspects of e-learning. It is clearly written and accessible.
I am recommending the newer e-earning book.
I ordered the book for my students this year, but found it a little bit too wide, therefore viewing the next e-learning book to see if I want to change it for next year.
This is a lovely simple text which explains a range of aspects on e-learning which i had been unable to find previously. This is great for learners looking at ICT and lecturers undertaking their PGCE.
Useful text to support understanding for students with useful exercises to test developing skills.
A very good text book looking at E-Learning in education and the many applications of this
