					   How NEYNL WDC is
supporting the introduction of
         What is e-learning?
Learning using a computer, computer
network, intranet or internet…

For the WDC:
Learning over the Internet using an e-learning
environment (MLE)
• VLE (Virtual Learning Environment)
  – The actual “classroom” where Trainers can add and
    develop courses and Learners can access those courses
• MLE (Managed Learning Environment)
  – The VLE plus the “back office” (administration)
  – It allows administrators to keep track of registrations,
    who’s doing what and when, report on training activity
    and monitor assessment
     Advantages of e-learning
• Self-paced
• Consistent
• Accessible - Martini-effect (any time, any
  place, anywhere)
• Stronger grasp of subject through use of
  quizzes, video, audio, etc.
• Faster
  Where does e-learning fit?
• In certain circumstances, it can replace a
  tutor-led course
• But usually integrated within a training
• Another method of training delivery -
  “Blended” approach
        And the training staff?
• Need trainers/subject experts to design,
  develop and quality assure courses
• Need trainers to support the learners (it can
  be a lonely place in cyberspace)
• Administrators to add users and report on

• Strategic drivers:
  – National: To meet stated objectives under
    “Working Together Learning Together
