The future of online distance learning: practical lessons from the winners of Best Online Distance Learning Gold Award
Debbie Lawley, Managing Director, Willow Learning Limited
These are exciting times for online distance learning. MOOCs, private universities and the increased demand for online degree, accreditation, CPD and combining working and learning in corporate academies are challenging all educators, from public, private, university and college to ensure their online learning achieves and exceeds expectations.
It is also a great time of opportunity – the ability to internationalise and extend the reach of courses has never been more readily achievable. As winners of the 2012 e-Learning Award for Best Online Distance Learning, Willow Learning has some practical and timely advice for those seeking to create world class programmes.
This seminar explores the principles of great online learning design, building engagement and will share the most robust and appropriate ways to deliver online programmes. We will also share ways in which to extend your learning to an international audience, through repurposing content and creating international portals.
