Serious e-learning

Reasons your, not so serious, e-learning project is likely to fail

I have been working on e-learning platforms, amongst other things, for the better part of a decade. This might seem long, but surprisingly e-learning has been around for over 50 years. You would, of course, be forgiven if you hadn't recognised it, as it has gone by various pseudonyms since its early inception in the 1960s. From VLEs to MLEs, LMSs to ILPs, but the underlying principle still remains the same; the use of technology to disseminate content and enhance learning and instruction.

AN OLD AGENDA FORMS A NEW ALLIANCE

E-Learning + Web 2.0 + Mobile technology = E-learning 2.0

Abstract. This article is an epigrammatic look into how new and emerging e-learning technologies can help improve the present, poor acquisition of knowledge and information within educational and business sectors in Nigeria.

We’ll be taking a brief look into the history of e-learning, how the web2.0 phenomena, in particular social networking

I remember sitting at home, one relaxed Sunday afternoon, surfing the Web and watching the progress bar on my browser move ever so slowly. At this point I was wondering to myself, will things ever change? (Not my life - the web page!). In the past, whenever I got really fed up with the slow Internet speed I would change providers. I've moved from MTN to Glo to Etisalat and all the way back again. After a while I realised it was a waste of time. They were nearly all providing a substandard service and didn't really care about my custom anyway (Feel free to take our poll on the right-hand side and see what others think).
