Does technology based learning necessarily mean effective learning? Clive Holtham, of the Cass Business School at City University, London, doesn’t think so.
In our article, Clive looks back at the various technologies promising to revolutionise learning, from his first experience of developing online learning in 1971 to the more recent virtual world of Second Life. So why have so many of them failed to deliver on their promises?
Clive argues that we can’t simply apply technology to learning and assume that it improves it. If e-learning is to remain popular amongst both training departments and learners themselves, we need to focus on the way in which we can use technological innovation, in conjunction with other learning tools and approaches, to drive learning innovation.
