E-Learning and Distance
Learning in the UK
Able 2nd Meeting
Adana, December 2011
Snapshot of the UK Higher Education sector

• There are over 300 institutions in the UCAS scheme
  including universities, colleges of higher education and
  further education colleges that offer HE courses. [Ucas 2011]

•   Undergraduate students attending on-campus courses will study
    for at least three years to obtain their bachelors degree.


• An institute can only call itself a
  university in the UK after being
  instituted by Royal Charter
  (basically this is an official
  recognition by the State). Only
  universities can award a degree
  (whether it be bachelor, master or
  other). [study2u.com]
Non University distance learning aspects

• Government Supported distance learning –
  focussed on helping people with core skills:
      –   Maths
      –   English
      –   Computers and IT
      –   Job Seeking Skills
      –   Life Skills
      –   Business and Job Specific Skills


•    They also „sell‟ on-line courses to businesses and
     feature both face to face and distance learning..
   A Recent JISC study into online learning , delivered by the technology
         assisted lifelong learning centre (TALL) at the University of
Oxford, identified more than 2,600 courses already being delivered online in
the UK, and worldwide the area is seen as having huge potential for growth.

  There may be many more, a true number is hard to get
 hold of, but some organisation exist, like the “The British
Institute for Learning & Development” to badge courses of
                          quality…
The history of e-learning, distance learning, open education in
  the UK and How it developed…

  • The Open University was the world's first successful
    distance teaching university, founded on the belief that
    communications technology could bring high quality
    degree-level learning to people who had not had the
    opportunity to attend traditional campus universities..

     –   1960’s - Conception
     –   1970’s - Realisation and Acceptance
     –   1980s – Expansion and Introduction of Technology
     –   1990’s - Changing Audience
     –   2000s - Innovation in Teaching Methods
The Open University still produces programs with
the BBC – on televsion and Radio, that fits in with
educational aspects of courses..
VLEs’s Blackboard and Moodle
                VLE take up                 Some Universities
                                           have a combination
                                               of both e.g.
                                             University wide
                              Blackboard     Blackboard and
                              Other          Department, or
                                             course specific
                                           Moodle. Other have
                                           a custom built VLE.
    Following a £5 million
investment in 2005, The Open
 University, UK is the second-              Most Blackboard
largest Moodle deployment by                users are using
                                             version 9.1 of
user-base, with 714,310 users                Blackboard…
      and 6,093 courses.
Which universities use distance learning, e-learning in
addition to face to face (traditional) learning in the UK   ?



                                                           Most UK
                                                      Universities have
                                                     some provision for
                                                    distance learning or
                                                        e-learning..…


                                     These Universities
                                     are either part of
                                     RDI or have taken
                                    part in Government
                                       studies in e-
                                          learning
Handicaps to e-education
 The major issue
     facing e-
 education in the
UK is a disparity
between city and
 rural broadband
     speeds –
   especially an
issue with Skype
  or large media
        files

This also affects
     mobile
signal, which is
  poor in rural
     areas…
What are the efforts to promote e-learning in
the UK?
• In March 2005, the Higher Education Funding council for
  England (HEFCE) developed a 10-year strategy to integrate
  e-learning into higher education

• There is funding for projects in the field of e-learning
  available from „JISC‟
   – JISC inspires UK colleges and universities in the
     innovative use of digital technologies, helping to
     maintain the UK's position as a global leader in
     education.

• There are frequent news reports on the rise of distance &
  e-learning in the national press and educational
  supplement – especially in light of recent university fee
  raises in the UK
How prevalent is online learning in the UK?

• Study of UK Online Learning [3] October 2010 identified
  over 2,600 HE level online and distance learning courses
  offered by, or on behalf of, UK HE and FE institutions. These
  included:
   – 1,528 courses offered by 113 HE and FE institutions; of which
     510 were identified as being delivered online (including
     blended learning);

   – 952 courses offered by the Open University; of which 600
     were dependent on the web and a further 95 were delivered
     fully online;

   – 175 courses offered in partnership with commercial partners.

   – Plus the % of UK educational establishments which provide
     distance learning to UK businesses as a bespoke package
Some Pros & Cons of online learning
Positive Elements                    Negative Aspects
•   E-learning can fit around        •   It can be hard for students to
    jobs, family and commitments         find the time to dedicate fully
                                         to courses with other
•   In most cases there will be a        distractions
    large financial saving for the
    student, course fees and         •   It can be very isolating to the
    relocation fees etc.                 student, especially if there
                                         isn't a well thought out
•   There can be the freedom to          community aspect to the
    only learn the required, or          course
    vital aspects of a course or
    qualification – topping up       •   Tutors may not have the
    skills or furthering work            support or training necessary
                                         to help e-learners
