Recommendation for better E-Learning in Malaysia 1. Blended Approach in e-Learning The term blended approach is used to describe the creation of a learning environment that combines several different delivery methods such as face-to-face interactions, self- paced and individualized learning and online interactions. OUM has taken the initiative to introduce blended pedagogy to its learners. This has proven to be a successful delivery mode as can be seen by its popularity among our learners. 2. Improving Accessibility and Connectivity Accessibility and connectivity needs to be further improved. This can be achieved through the upgrading of technological infrastructure as well as the lowering of the access fees to a more affordable level.3. Mobile Learning InitiativesRealizing the widespread use of mobile devices in Malaysia, one of the ways toexpedite the acceptance of e-learning is to leverage on the use of mobile technologythat will facilitate mobile learning.
