  • 3. e-learning section part A’
    e-learning for us is a continuum involving any form of instructional technology with face to face instructor led Training in order to improve the quality of learning by facilitating access to resources and services as well as remote exchanges and collaboration
    The use of new multimedia technologies and the Internet to improve the quality of learning by facilitating access to resources and services as well as remote exchanges and collaboration
    Definition from the portal
    “E-learning is the acquisition of knowledge and skills using electronic technologies such as computer- and Internet-based courseware and local and wide area networks”
    Learning Supported by ICT = CEDEFOP
    Definition of e-learning
  • 4. Types of e-learning
    Synchronous learning
    Asynchronous learning
    Blended learning
    How ExpertOnes operates e-learning
    Online ANYTIME – asynchronous learning
    Online LIVE – synchronous learning
    Blended learning
    Mentor led training
    Types of e-learning
    3 types of e-learning & how we operate e-learning
  • 5. Synchronous Learning
    In Synchronous Learning the trainee participates in real time learning via an intranet or the Internet. Learning of this type has many similarities to the education in a classroom, with the difference that the instructor and participant are in a "virtual" room that has no geographical limitations. Using this type of e-learning technology the instructor has the possibility to provide training anywhere in the world. This type of learning can be recorded electronically and can be repeated again later when necessary. The communication tools used are chat, "virtual" classrooms and sharing applications.
    Asynchronous Learning
    The form of e-learning where there is not an immediate, "synchronous" communication between the learner and the trainer during the learning process. In the case of asynchronous training the trainer can prepare the educational materials and store it to an electronic medium (LCMS/LMS), while afterwards the learner can take the learning material anywhere and at any time he / she chooses to. It appears that this type of training is more flexible, but there is no communication trainer - trainee in real time. The communication tools used are e-mail correspondence (messaging), Discussion Groups and Bulletin Boards.
    Blended Learning
    The term Blended learning describes the learning model of learning which implements both asynchronous communication technologies and conventional education structures. In this model of learning, learners usually begin the education process at conventional educational structures and then access content and communicate with the trainer using Internet technologies.
    Definition of Synchronous, Asynchronous, Blended
  • 6. e-learning through a mentor, who:
    implements the educational course
    monitors the progress of the course
    evaluates the results
    encourages the participants to complete the e-learning courses
    e-mentoring or online mentoring
    group mentoring (group of people)
    one on one mentoring (personal mentoring)

    How e-learning is operated by ExpertOnes .2
  • 8. Cultural Issues & e-learning
    Complicated issue, needs analysis per country / differences between European, North Latin, Latin, Asian and African countries
    Culture analysis must observe the following before proceeding to the design and planning of the e-learning course:
    Objects, symbols, rewards & surroundings
    Talk, language, and jargon (written and spoken)
    Values, emotions, and beliefs
    Perceptions, tacit knowledge & assumptions
    Myths, anecdotes, sagas, & stories
    Political, Economical & Religious Issues
  • 9. Cultural Issues & e-learning
    Computer Literacy
    • The language of the e-learning course should be in the Countries native language, otherwise it is useless (producing it requires time & financial resources)
    • 10. Instructors and learners must understand the language, otherwise the educational program has no value
    • 11. Averseness towards new technology and level of literacy
    • 12. Willingness to learn through ICT
    Social factors
    Local Learning Opportunities
    • Collectivist
    • 13. Individualist
    • 14. Neutral
    • 15. affective
    • 16. Opportunities offered through the official educational system, as well as from other educational actors
    • In Greece, e-learning is now considered an official form of learning
  • 1. Requirement analysis
    Acquiring the profile of the target group
    The first step for the development of an e-course is the requirement analysis. To enable the design, development and delivery of the training, the characteristics of the user who will attend the online course as well as the educational needs, are initially investigated based on the following components:
    Number of the people that will be trained
    Age composition
    Level of the participant’s general knowledge
    Level of the participants’ technical training
    Objectives of the learning process by the participants
    The learning-professional benefit for the participants of the learning course
    The matching of the professional work profile with the objectives of the learning approach.
    All the above vary from culture to culture
    Cultural Issues & e-learning
    Steps to tame cultural diversifications
  • 17. Analysis of the learning needs
    The analysis of the characteristics and educational needs is made through specific evaluation process, which indicates the level of knowledge, as well as the learning method that suits best to meet the needs of the learners. The evaluation is done with the use of a structured questionnaire. Based on the characteristics and educational needs of the learners, decisions will be made on:
    Type of the electronic learning that will be followed
    The services that will be provided to the participants of the training
    The educational and accompanying material that will be produced for the implementation of the training
    The appropriate tools that will be used for the development of the learning content (e.g. Flash)
    Potential threats to the success of the project.
    2. Content definition
    The second step for the development of an e-course is to determine its content.
    The electronic material to be created must include among others:
    It will be structured in small learning modules (Learning Objects), hence providing the possibility to complete it in a short time. This option is also one of the basic principles of adult learning, since the adult learner has many different distractions along the duration of an e-learning course
    Cultural Issues & e-learning
  • 18. 3. Selection of the appropriate electronic training solution
    Asynchronous Learning
    Synchronous Learning
    Blended Learning
    Cultural Issues & e-learning
  • 19. 4. Selection of the appropriate tools
    The selection of the appropriate tools to be used must be based on:
    The file format
    The interactivity provided by the tools
    The optimization of the produced content so as to be used on the Internet, CD-ROM or both
    The ability to create automatic navigation menu
    The ability to support international standards such as SCORM & AICC
    The available resources.
    Cultural Issues & e-learning

  • 41. Discouraging reasons for e-learning
    Lack of personal interest
    No clear idea of what is e-learning (procedure)
    No clear view of the benefits after completion
    No clear correlation between e-learning and qualifications for career progress
    Lack of resources:
    “Extrinsic motivation is impersonal and is based on rewards that originate from outside the learner. Students achieve in order to win parents’ approval, or to gain the praise of their teacher, or to earn high grades” (Yount 1996, 279). These learners are passive, and when the rewards stop, the good academic behavior does also
    “Intrinsic motivationis based on the personal satisfaction derived from achieving learning goals. Students achieve because of their own personal desire to learn […] and master their subjects” (Yount 1996, 279). These learners are active in the learning process and are more motivated towards learning and e-learning is specific
