Beyond e-learning Practical Insights from the USA

by | Dec 3, 2006 | Articles

This report was published to present the findings of the first DTI Global Watch Mission to the USA on eLearning.

The initial specific objectives for the mission were to gain an understanding of:
• The latest research and technical innovation, in particular around the use of advanced interactive simulations and
mobile technologies (mLearning)

• Business innovations in eLearning including the use of open source (OS) software, and improved methods in demonstrating return on investment (ROI)

• New approaches in using technology for organisational learning including embedded learning and performance support

• The potential for international technologybased collaboration, including joint research and development (R&D) or production, technology licensing, distribution etc

DTI Global Watch Service originally provided support dedicated to helping businesses improve their competitiveness by identifying and accessing innovative technologies and practices from overseas. They have now disbanded but their reports are available at www.ktnetworks.co.uk

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
