This work offers a summary of the book “ABCs OF eLEARNING: Reaping the Benefits and Avoiding the Pitfalls” by Brooke Broadbent.
With computers and Internet being so widely accessible, the digital space a perfect vehicle for costeffective learning. Electronic learning, or eLearning as it is known, has not been half as successful as it could be. Apart from its wide reach and cost effectiveness, it has many other benefits including its adaptable structure, its interactive nature, its flexibility, and most interestingly the fact that it is nonlinear meaning participants can skip material or specify the order in which they learn, something that cannot be tailored in the classroom. Thanks to all these advantages, eLearning is becoming increasingly popular, at all levels of education.
In this summary of ABCs Of ELearning, Brooke Broadbent helps to dissect the different forms of eLearning and explains how to plan and roll out successful eLearning courses with solid, measurable results.
