Delivering E-Learning: A Complete Strategy for Design, Application and Assessment Reviews
The book is interesting and fun to read. I liked the elaboration on the definition of elearning and the introductory chapters in general.. especially the distinction between who he called "immigrants" and "natives".---"The term [e-learning:] first appeared in the year 1997" (p. 13) "At this point we must digress. There are a number of different forms of ‘blended learning’ worthy of being distinguished. Here are just four:• The sandwich. The course sandwich is one classic blend, where preand post-course work is offered online. This is online learning with a ‘traditional’ course as the sandwich filling.• The milestone. Another classic form is to start with an online course and add on face-to-face training events (group work or one-to-one) as milestones, which help to pace the programme.• Knowledge and skill. A third form is to use the online part of the blend for underpinning knowledge while using a face-to-face approach for skill development.• Complementary resources. The fourth form sees online learning resources offered as back-up to face-to-face training, allowing learners to refer back to coursework when they are on the job. In this form, the online part is subservient to the offline, but it is a blend that oftenworks well." (p. 21)"By this measure, the digital classroom is merely a variation of classroom-based learning, not a new model." (p. 21) .. talking about the five models of e-learning. "The term ‘e-learning 2.0’ has emerged to refer to the use of social software or ‘shareware’ such as blogs and wikis." (p. 22)
