This article is a research project by Dave Comier, George Siemens, et al and

deals with Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), which means that all knowledge

and information may be done and shared on and online basis.

These videos tell you more about MOOCs.


Sometime in June Sandy McAuley, Bonnie Stewart, George Siemens and I decided to apply to SSHRC for funding for researching the place of MOOCs in the digital economy. We did a little work creating videos to allow people to understand what was going on in a MOOC and decide if it was something they might want to do.

We also did a huge write up that you might find interesting

The MOOC Model for Digital Practice responds to the “Building Digital Skills for Tomorrow” section of the consultation paper Improving Canada’s Digital Advantage: Strategies for Sustainable Prosperity by synthesizing the current state of knowledge about Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).

Top 10 strategies for a successful E-learning

Education | 2010.12.17 07:48 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Many tasks, roles, and tools are required to design and develop robust,

effective e-learning.

By Mark Steiner


Today’s wide blend of technologies enables an extraordinary range of cognitive, affective, and social enhancements of learning capabilities. Advances in collaborative learning and experiential simulation enable a variety of guided and inquiry-based learning that cross the barriers of distance and time. Through a mixture of instructional media, learners and educators can experience synchronous and asynchronous interactions.


This article focuses primarily on asynchronous learning, specifically constructing self-paced e-learning courses, though these strategies could be applied to a variety of learning design and development situations. Designing and developing robust, effective e-learning is not easy. Many tasks, roles, and tools are required to complete the process successfully. Here are 10 of the fundamentals critical to success.

  1. Educate the client on the fundamentals of e-learning. Regardless of a client’s level of e-learning awareness or sophistication, an educational process must occur. This is true whether it is an internal or external client. Even among experienced professionals within this industry, individuals undoubtedly have varying nomenclature regarding roles, processes, and tools. It is essential to educate your client on roles, processes, tools, options, costs, feasibility, and consequences to ensure all parties are operating on similar assumptions and guidelines. You and your client should approach the endeavor as a partnership. Assist your client in realizing what an integral part it is to the process. Build trust with your client by providing it with sensible, honest, pragmatic expertise. However, don’t be afraid to exert control and don’t be afraid to say no. Remember it’s your responsibility to set and control the client’s expectations.
  1. Determine the actualtraining need or gap. If training is not the solution to the problem, you are guaranteed to fail. It is doubtful either you or your client desire such an outcome. To help ensure determination of the actual deficiency, perform a thorough analysis, working closely with your client. Begin your analysis with what your client thinks is wrong, then dig deeper, utilizing your previous experiences, education, and intuition. There are a variety of resources that can assist individuals and organizations in enhancing and strengthening their analysis process.
  1. Define your process and communicate it, focusing on key review points in the cycle. The design and development of e-learning is often a complicated collision of ideas, tools, roles, people, technology, and desired outcomes. You and your client want predictable results. A well-defined, reliable process is the clearest way to get the desired results. What activities are to occur? When will they occur? Which ones must be completed before other activities can begin? It is important to make your client aware of its responsibilities: specifically inputs, review cycles, and corresponding impacts

The power of E-learning

Education | 2010.11.12 04:09 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

E-learning is the education system that people can't ignore or should keep up with

at the 21st century for their lifelong education.

Nowadays, the term, Distributed Learning System, is more used than e-learning.

It is because distributed learning has much wider range of meaning.


One of the basic tenets of adult learning is that learning needs to take place at the time that the knowledge is required.

In today’s business climate, the performance of your people is a critical differentiator for your business’ success. When change is the only constant, your organization must establish a baseline of competency and skills among your workforce.
No matter the size of your organization
can move your organization forward by delivering measurable results that drive performance.
Learning Portal: Often when businesses look into assessed eLearning solutions they run into three potentially scary letters
Social Learning: Social learning is a powerful training tool for any sized company.
This is one reason why providing self-paced and e-learning is such a powerful and effective investment for businesses. E-learning can provide every employee
consistent learning that is available at the time they require it.
