e-Learning can be defined as 'learning facilitated and supported through the use of information and communications technology'. It can cover a spectrum of activities from the use of technology to support learning as part of a ‘blended’ approach (a combination of traditional and e-learning approaches), to learning that is delivered entirely online. Whatever the technology, however, learning is the vital element.
The amount of advertisements for e-Learning coordinators and Lead Teachers of e-Learning illustrates that this is not going to go away.
I recommend that you take a look at http://www.jisc.ac.uk/uploaded_documents/jisc%20effective%20practice3.pdf to get a better idea about e-Learning and how it could shape your classroom in the not too distant future if it is not already doing so!
It's an exciting time and I will be giving you some further guidance in this area probably when we hit half term.
