Effective Practice in eLearning - Bulletins
Over the last few years, the Ministry of Education (MoE) has funded over a dozen research reports to better understand specific issues relevant to e-learning in the New Zealand tertiary sector. Over the same period, the Tertiary Education Commission has funded projects through the e-Learning Collaborative Development Fund, which have produced reports on other relevant issues. While these reports contain much of relevance to the sector (the reports are a response to stakeholder-identified knowledge needs), few people in the sector are accessing or reading, let alone applying, the knowledge in these reports.
To address this, MoE has commissioned development of ‘user-friendly’, evidence-based information about aspects of e-learning to benefit educators, students and officials. These materials synthesise existing research to assist these audiences with their practice.
