My Book of Bloggs
June 04, 2004
This will be my last entry into my book of bloggs.
I really just wnated to put down some thoughts on the overall e-learning experience of the subject - not just hte course which I have compelted online.
As I have indicated in my last few blogg entries, this is my first exposure to e-learning and I have found it to be a very interesting exercise.
There are just so many ways that e-learning can be use within organisations like mine - it is just a matter of convincing the big people that we need to invest money to make money. I feel that this would be appropriate to use as part of blended learning as it will engage the learners in a different way. It would and could address many learning styles that typically are seen as unimportant. From a trainers perspective, I feel that this is really the way to go moving ahead.
I am very intersted to see how big e-learning becomes. Personally, I can see so much of what we teach in the classroom being available to learners in this context.
It has been interesting writing this blogg. My only probelm is that I kep forgetting to record thoughts on e-learning and then had to scramble at the end to make sure that Ihad posted some entries. This in itself will become more widely used in future learning.
Until another time ......
Putting the finishing touches to my report which is due to be submitted today.
The e-learning course that I did - French Steps was very good. I didn't quite know what to expect but I found it to be very stimulating visually as well as the hearing and doing features. I was kept interested in the material by the way it was presented to me and I found it to be at a basic level which is just where I fitted in.
I could stop and start it at any time and I could pick what I wanted to complete. I even gave the Fast track a go and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I actually knew more French than I thought I did.
I am glad I did something like this which was a course of interest to me outside of work.
Have spent some time looking at the evaluation form in the activity booklet to make sure that I am on track with what I need to submit in my report. There are some areas that are not applicable to French Steps and some that were not even addressed by the learning company.
Overall, I would rate this an a very good course. It had a high level of interactivity and was never easy to navigate. I was able to move at my own pace and comfort level. I found it to be a useful and practical course to help me in my pursuit to learn a language.
The course was exactly what it stated - basic language in easy steps.
Until next time .....
