This subject provides an introduction to the field of elearning. It explores the key concepts of elearning tools and elearning strategies, and the issues surrounding implementation of elearning in teaching and learning settings. Students analyse learning contexts, and explore the complex relation between learners, elearning tools, elearning pedagogies and the learning context. Using a real life setting, students identify learner needs and determine appropriate elearning solutions to meet these needs in the learning context. The design cycle is introduced for designing and implementing elearning solutions.
