To improve the cost effectiveness and sustainability of e-learning, many national and international initiatives are pioneering new ways in which educators can share their curricula with teachers and learners around the world. To enable this global sharing, educators must learn to design, manage and implement reusable electronic educational resources. This unique book outlines approaches to sharing and reusing resources for e-learning.
Drawing upon research by 30 prominent scholars from seven countries, the authors offer multiple perspectives from school, continuing and higher education as well as industry. It is essential reading for those implementing e-learning in education and corporate training, including teachers, trainers, academics, educational developers and support staff as well as senior managers.
Dr Allison Littlejohn is a lecturer in the Centre for Academic Practice (CAP) at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, specialising in the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) in learning and teaching.
'This is a book that can be turned to time and time again. It should, and probably will, end up on the shelf of everyone who is developing and managing e-learning and wondering how to get more out of the available resources and reconstitute their parts into new wholes.' - Colin Latchem, British Journal of Educational Technology
'This is essential reading for all those involved in the development or management of e-learning .' - Professor Heather Eggins, Director, UK Society for Research into Higher Education
