Categories of eLearning (By George Siemens)

Link to article (Please read this article )
"This paper attempts to present the categories, not procedures, of the elearning field. The categories of elearning:

  • Courses
  • Informal learning
  • Blended learning
  • Communities
  • Knowledge management
  • Networked learning
  • Work-based learning (EPSS)

These various learning categories do not need to function in isolation. A complex learning implementation will certainly incorporate different facets of elearning. During course design, learning resources can be tagged and made available for later use in work-based learning. The knowledge management system can be integrated with (and update) courses. Communities themselves can also provide a feedback loop to courses, work-based learning, and the knowledge management system. Ultimately, the value in categorizing the elearning market is in detailing the entire market and attempting to incorporate as many aspects as are practical into a corporate or educational implementation."
