future directions important challenges ahead
Future DirectionsImportant challenges ahead

Interest in eLearning is increasing - from politicians, academia

and industry - and expectations are high.

However ...

  • Learners need to see the tangible benefits and added-value
  • Decision makers need appropriate benchmarks and indicators
  • Emphasis must now be placed on quality, standards and pedagogy
  • Organisational issues and teacher/tutor training need greater consideration
  • Evaluation methodologies need to be developed for these new learningparadigms
  • Research must be strengthened with increased emphasis on sharingexperience and best practice
  • Public-Private-Partnerships need to be explored and the market for eLearning content needs to be developed
future directions elearning realising the potential
Future DirectionseLearning - realising the potential

As we move towards the Knowledge Society, Europe - with its excellent Education and Training Systems - is well placed to take advantage of the revolution in learning

eLearning is now at the top of the political agenda, but many key issues still need to be addressed if the potential is to be realised

By mobilising and co-ordinating Europe’s efforts, the eLearning Initiative is playing an important role in helping Europe to realise its potential to be the world leader in learning products and services.
