     What is Online Learning

   NOT just Intranet
   NOT just online contents
   NOT just tele-lecturing
   NOT CBT (CAL, CAI) online
   NOT necessarily equivalent to
    eLearning
     Definition of eLearning


“The use of network technologies
  to create, foster, deliver, and
        facilitate learning,
    anytime and anywhere.”

      Problem of eLearning


     “The problem with most
  interpretations of this e-word,
 however, is that they focus too
 heavily on the “e,” the technical
               side,
less so on the second part of the
         word: learning. ”
    Online Learning (Teaching)

   learner (teacher) oriented
   learning (teaching) process focused
   desired learning + designed teaching
   self-paced + teacher-monitored
