Academic year 2014-15 closes off – time for reflection?

As the current academic year comes to a close what opportunities are there for improving e-learning through e-confident approaches?

E-Learning: Animation for animation sake.

We were having a discussion over the weekend with a friend who has recently been through an e-learning programme in the health care sector, she knows we create e-learning content and hence the topic arose. She commented that the content was technically challenging,  in that it frequently froze half way through quizzes and tests and […]

E learning Materials Provide Support for Traditional Delivery

E-learning is deployed often to save cost. Face to face training is expensive not only from the direct costs of the training but the hidden costs of travel, subsistence and working week disruption.

Easter holidays emphasise the benefits of e-learning

Post 16 colleges abide by the normal academic timetable which is based on the idea that children need a break from learning, hence the half terms and other blocks of non- teaching time. Often though, our local colleges support a lot of adult learners, many of whom are are in employment and “holiday weeks” are […]

Is a classroom PowerPoint ok for e-learning?

A traditionally delivered presentation should use the slides to make bullet points or summaries for the presenter. The personality and style of delivery make the learning happen. Plodding through and reading a PowerPoint is not good practice, as most teachers and trainers would agree. So, is a Powerpoint OK to use as content in e-learning, as […]
