Is e-Learning a Distinct Profession?

More and more institutions (usually at the prompting of funding councils) are demanding that courses be available on-line. Of course the distance between the aim of providing a course on-line and the final course is a long one and is not a journey that, whether from lack of interest or lack of skill, not all learning professionals can take.

Is there a place, then, for professional e-learning practitioners who exist solely in the ether?

Angela Boothroyd explores that question further here:

Welcome

My previous blog, Creating e-Learning, had reached a natural conclusion I think. While it started being devoted solely to e-learning and branched out into e-assessment it has evolved into a smorgasbord of education links, useful software and general outpourings covering my work with Ayr College, the Scottish Qualifications Authority and the Scottish Further Education Unit.

It has made sense, therefore, to spin off my blog and rename it. The original blog still exists, and might even see some updates, but my main blog efforts will be here from now on.

Hope you stay with me.

Tony
