Strategies for eLearning Environments EAL310


The growth of eLearning in schools, VET providers and workplaces means that every educator should feel comfortable working in this environment. In this unit, you will design and develop a pedagogically sound eLearning strategy suitable for your current or intended teaching context. To begin with, you will examine theoretical perspectives towards eLearning and the ways in which technology can support learning, before moving on to design and develop your own eLearning strategy. You will become familiar with a range of eLearning design and development applications and participate in a peer-review process to review and evaluate a number of your peers eLearning strategies. These experiences will occur in the context of considering the benefits and challenges of integrating online learning and teaching into an educational context.
