Online Learning: Justifications and Obstacles « Online Learning Update

"Many educational institutions have adopted E-Learning system or are thinking to adopt it in their educational systems. As a nearly recent system, many do not know the exact meaning of E-Learning, or why should it be used? After using it, will the institution face any problems? And what are the best solutions for these problems? This paper aims to answer all the above questions. In addition, it discusses the ways to transform traditional learning systems to E-Learning, and how to measure the advantages of this transformation. Finally, the students’ views of E-Learning show that they prefer e-learning over traditional system."

I’ll never forget being a young manager having learned to know-it-all, or defend-it-all, but not having truly “heard-them-all.” So, who is the them? And, why should we stop to hear what they say?

Our tacit knowledge is drawn from our experience as well as our years of study and is stored in bits and pieces in our brain, that is, it is not stored as answers or explanations but as fragments.

How Technology Can Improve Online Learning - Online Learning - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
By Robert W. Mendenhall

"As president of a nonprofit, online university I am often asked about the quality of online learning. The answer is that the quality of education is largely independent of the mode of delivery. Other variables are far more important. There is high-quality online learning, and there is high-quality classroom learning, just as there is low-quality learning in both settings..."

Evaluate Students’ Perceptions of the Virtual Online Learning Environment at Paisley University « Online Learning Update

"The number of students studying online has been dramatically increased. This has brought an interest and encouragement to some researchers to examine and evaluate the values perceived from the online learning, and why these vast amounts of students are joining the online learning. The purpose of this study is dedicated to evaluate the students’ perception of the e-learning system at Paisley University. This study evaluates several factors influencing the perceptions of the undergraduate students who undertaken the information management course. The outcome of this study shows that online students perceived the values of the e-learning system differently and the factors mentioned in the literature review each of whom has its own effect on their perceptions."

Marc My Words: eLearning Myths, Part 2 by Marc J. Rosenberg : Learning Solutions Magazine

Great article!

Expert:

"Myth #11: Everyone understands what eLearning is.

This is perhaps the biggest myth of all. Increasingly, eLearning escapes a simple definition. Some equate eLearning with eTraining.  Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline and one of the coiners of the term “learning organization,” once noted, “The confusion between training and learning is fatal.”

ELearning includes eTraining, but is, in reality, a much bigger concept, taking into consideration a host of non-training strategies, such as informal learning, performance support, access to information (rather than access to instruction), online mentoring and coaching, collaboration and communities of practice, social media, and more. Truth is, we are always learning, but we are clearly not always being trained – either in class or online. It’s no wonder our definitions and perceptions of eLearning are constantly changing and debated. Perhaps the term “eLearning” just doesn’t fit anymore and is starting to outlive its usefulness. What do you think?"

Content Curator Will Be New And Important Role In Organizations | Forbes | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Interesting excerpt from this article:

 

"Content is in the center of it all.

 

Few organizations have an overarching strategy that channels all this branded content into a consolidated planning model. In parallel, we see lack of defined leadership for overall orchestration and accountability for content-driven programs.

 

This will become a business priority as companies seek more discipline in how stories are conveyed – not to mention cost savings that come with more disciplined sourcing, curating and production.

 

Look for new leaders and content functions to emerge to support a range of marketing disciplines and community programs. And as part impart new ways to help teams understand how content plays holistically within plans that reflect the way people now consume and share content...."

Financial Reform: Unfinished Business by Paul Volcker

Financial Reform: Unfinished Business by Paul Volcker | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
It should be clear that among the causes of the recent financial crisis was an unjustified faith in rational expectations, market efficiencies, and the techniques of modern finance. That faith was stoked in part by the huge financial rewards that enabled the extremes of borrowing, the economic imbalances, and the pretenses and assurances of the credit-rating agencies to persist so long. A relaxed approach by regulators and legislators reflected the new financial zeitgeist...
