Potential of e-Learning

  • Interoperability

    • Cross-platform, cross-system

  • Accessibility

    • Anywhere, anytime

  • Reusability

    • Learning objects

  • Sharable learning content

    • Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant learning objects

  • Blended-learning

    • Just-in-need, just-in-time

Sun Tzu

Challenges of e learning l.jpg

Challenges of e-Learning

  • Everyone has learning needs but no one has e-learning needs—e-learning is a solution not an end in itself. (Morrison, 2003)

  • This misapplication of e-learning is sometimes driven by internal competition & ego rather than sound analysis and decision-making…it may not get the front-end assessment, the task analysis, audience analysis, & assessment of learner environment required for quality design & effective learning. (Labonte, 2003)

  • Learning does not equal performance—the enthusiasm with the technical capabilities of e-learning may lead to talking &acting as if e-learning is the silver bullet, the miracle cure for organizational & individual performance problems.(Labonte, 2003)


Sun tzu s the art of war l.jpg

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War

  • A Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC.
