Check out this link for an article on the four learning styles according to Honey and Mumford. I'm an Activist - no doubt about it. Since I'm kinaesthetic, I guess that stands to reason!

Stephen Downes again - this time tackling the rather abstract matter of knowledge. Trying to define it is a little like trying to nail jelly to a wall, but he makes a good start!

I wish I could attend a seminar addressed by this man! Funny - since he's an authority on the virtual community.

I have found that, having been a classroom based trainer for many years (especially having taught public speaking), I am subconsciously designing modules that will support a live instructor. Half way through my induction project module, I realised that this was the case and had to go back to the beginning. It is important to remember that the module must be able to stand alone.
It is also vital to be creative in finding ways to engage the learner. Elearning often makes it too easy to be passive. If elearning has been undertaken on an individual basis, with no accountability structure in place, it is a simple matter to rack up courses completed without there being any evidence of an achievement of the learning objectives. Elearning material needs to provide a system of checks and balances in order for outcomes to be measurable.
