    • What is E-learning?
      • “…the use of computer network technology, primarily over an intranet or through the Internet, to deliver information and instruction to individuals”
      ~ Welsh, Wanberg, Brown, & Simmering (2003) , p. 246
    • Synchronous E-learning
      • involves having learners present in front of the computer for a “live” interactive learning sessions
      • Online chat rooms
      • Video conferences (such as Elluminate Live!)
      • Synchronous discussion forums

    • Why use E-learning?
      Reasons for using e-learning approaches include:
      • eliminating obstacles caused by distance and time constraints
      • allows for educational information to be more easily accessible and interactive (Tucker, 2005)
    • Why use E-learning?
      • “Interactivity transforms a passive audience into people who are much more likely to absorb information”
      ~ Burns (2005), p.51
      • The flexibility of e-learning environments make the idea even more attractive, allowing students to connect and learn across time zones
      ~Naidu (2007)
      as cited in Bisoux (2007)

    • Three Generations of Distance Learning
      SorenNiper (1989) outlines that distance learning has evolved through three generations:
      • Correspondence teaching
      • Multimedia teaching
      • Print, combined with broadcast media, cassettes and computers, to some extent
      • New interactive communications technologies (ICTs)
    • Learning better with technology

    • The Future of E-learning?
      • Desai, Hart, & Richards (2008) call attention to the fact that even though we live in a time where technology is everywhere, our educational environments are lagging behind
      • There has been a noticeable movement towards e-learning, but there is still a gap between the technological standards of educational institutions and society as a whole

    • Transforming Education
      • A transformation in education is needed. To attain this, we must parallel how and what the learners need to know in order to be successful in the world of work.
      ~Christen (2009)
      • This can be done by:
      • Synchronizing instruction and students’ lives outside the classroom
      • Aligning curriculum and the currently information-driven workforce
      • Improving the integration of technology in teaching and learning
      ~Christen (2009)
