Have you seen examples from your own experience where e-learning both lived up to its promise of delivering effective and engaging content and where it failed to deliver what it promised?
From my experience all the courses that David has put together live up to their promise and deliver clearly the ‘what’, ‘how’ and ‘why’ of e-learning. I did an online course (won’t mention which one) about 5 years ago which in technology terms it probably means centuries ago, but it didn’t live unto its promise. It was just PDF after PDF and forum after forum. I think even the teachers were bored as they seemed to attend the forums less and less.
Like Paula, I would like to know more about the engagement matrix.
