  5. 5. Our Solution <ul><li>Offer short one-on-one sessions in e-pedagogy when needed </li></ul><ul><li>Develop an online toolbox for e-learning </li></ul>

  9. 9. In Short <ul><li>In order to take advantage of the benefits of e-learning, it is important that technical and pedagogical support is available. </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional design teams with technicians, educationalists and web designers who work together is an ideal solution, but unaffordable for us </li></ul><ul><li>We are hoping that a system with a portal for online pe dagogy offering help for the novice and the adept alike, and with some degree of personal support, might be a way to go </li></ul>
