tbcStarting out with e-learning

E-learning as a term is very broad and can be anything that uses technology to enhance the learning experience, from simple online self tests or podcasts through to complex online simulations. Some times e-learning could be a matter of adding extra features into existing material, or rethinking the delivery of your materials and how technology could be embedded into them. In doing this, access to your materials could then be widened to cater for geographically dispersed students or to provide just-in-time access.
