eLearning is a relatively new field that takes into consideration information from various bodies of knowledge, such as andragogy, pedagogy, organizational studies, technology and instructional design. Most people involved with eLearning have a background in, for example, technology or pedagogy, but for many, it is difficult to gain an understanding of eLearning aspects outside of their domain. Yet groups with members from extremely diverse backgrounds are again and again charged with making key decisions regarding adoption and implementation of eLearning. Little formal research exists to learn from, and the rapid development of eLearning makes the situation even more difficult.
We must, however, remember that the basic goal of eLearning is to develop various types of students and trainees to their fullest potential. The focus must always be to give the learner the best learning experience possible. To accomplish this, we need to take knowledge developed in the various fields related to eLearning into consideration, and be creative in how we apply the various principles and techniques.
Due to my very extensive background in pedagogy, educational administration, implementation of educational innovations, sales and business development, instructional design, strategic planning and online teaching, I am in a unique position to assist you with various aspects of this challenging, and exciting field.
I look forward to assisting you and your organization in person with any of these topic areas! Please contact me for further information.
