Provides a thorough, academic analysis of how to integrate e-learning with traditional learning techniques.
It is widely recognized that online and e-learning is no longer an exclusive approach used only in distance education and in isolation from traditional education programmes. A real difficulty facing educators and trainers is how to integrate these new learning methods and embed them in established and existing forms of learning, teaching or training.
This book forms a serious, in-depth study of the subject and proposes that e-learning is not simply a matter of 'digitizing' traditional materials, but involves a new approach, which must take into account pedagogical, technological and organizational features to form a well-designed education system.
A practical focus is maintained throughout, with advice on implementation and case studies drawn from the contributors' considerable experience.
Integrated E-Learning is essential reading for anyone wanting to implement, design, develop or deliver e-learning or training courses.
