The Case Against e-Learning book
This chapter focuses on aspects of successful learning that e-learning might be expected to be deficient in. It shows factors that the involvement of others brings to e-learning. With a little care and thought e-learning can be used to assess the full range of cognitive skills. At the application level, learners have to apply a concept, theory or principle to a practical situation. Successful e-learning will meet the needs of individuals for praise and personal feedback in ways that are appropriate to the individual. The implication for e-learning is that humour may need to be restricted to the passive elements, as the user will control the timing of the interactive elements. Even media-rich e-learning only stimulates senses and the visual stimulus is within a very narrow field. Ensuring that the e-learning is collaborative brings in other people and maybe a tutor.
