Online learning: Pessimism, optimism and realism

Online learning: Pessimism, optimism and realism | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
However, the way we think about online learning is inadequate. Attitudes generally fall into one of two prevailing camps: online learning optimism and pessimism. Both sides are entrenched in meaningless, largely unproductive opposition, perhaps because both perspectives talk past one another in advancing valid points.

Optimists see online learning as inevitable, driven by demand for greater efficiency. Pessimists see institutions abusing government programs and uninformed consumers to maximize profits while undermining or even mocking quality of learning outcomes as a concept.

Within this polarized mix of ideas rests an underappreciated but important third perspective: online learning realism.

I've been part deeply involved with online teaching and learning since before the turn of the century. While I understand the pessimistic viewpoint,  I've been an optimist and a realist from day one.

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, October 2, 9:46 AM

As a veteran facilitator of professional learning in both f2f and online environments, I see that they are both needed and both effective when the teacher/administrator is committed to the learning/course.

Sue Walsh's curator insight, October 2, 6:08 PM

Well I have to sit on the optimist side of the fence. Sure we struggle to get a real hold on online learning, yet it holds such great opportunities ... and as long as we focus on personalised, accessible,  high-quality production and implementation, we are sure to succeed ... eventually :-)

I will take a look at this program.  If I could start Monday that would be perfect! I'm probably too late which would be sad because it seems to be relatively inexpensive.

Interesting study.  

Sue Walsh's curator insight, July 26, 9:54 PM

It's no wonder getting large scale eLearning in place is such a challenge. Should be considered by all the CEOs who expect it to "just happen"!

Jose Pietri's curator insight, September 10, 6:51 AM

Essential for the good planning of any project.
