Welcome to learning unit 1: Overview Online Learning (e-learning)
Digital media is all around us.
The smartphone has become our day-to-day companion, helping us to communicate and access information on the go. Digital media is also used more and more as a means of education.  Information which complements classes or lectures is often uploaded as pdfs or linked to, so participants can “read up something online”. However, e-learning is not very common in adult education and is often met with scepticism. You may yourself have raised an eyebrow, and questioned whether E-learning can compete with standard in-class education…
Either way, we are delighted to see that you are interested in trying something new and taking part in our project. Firstly, to make sure you are well prepared, we will be teaching you some basic elements of theoretical E-learning pedagogy.
