  3. 3. Most e‐Learning simply automates simply automates that model. The only difference is   Th l diff i now learners don’t  need to be in the same  need to be in the same place at the same time. They can have access  They can have access to learning at any time,  yp any place (c) C4LPT, 2009
  4. 4. However, although a lot of money is spent on creating engaging,  interactive, multimedia courseware,  one vital ingredient is missing:  other people  one vital ingredient is missing: other people So a blended approach  is often employed. But even face‐to‐face  events are often  delivered in a fairly  traditional way. (c) C4LPT, 2009
  5. 5. Meanwhile, outside of the formal learning  Meanwhile outside of the formal learning environment (online courses, classroom,  workshops, etc)  individuals are learning in  p, ) g other ways – often without realising it ‐ whether it be by reading, listening  or watching  … (c) C4LPT, 2009

  11. 11. Even within the traditional formal learning environment,  these new tools are being used by educators to ensure that formal learning is becoming more  participative, social and collaborative. participative social and collaborative (c) C4LPT, 2009
