Brainstorming ideas for project scope
Title agony-The formula for success raises the question what is success. What I originally did not want to do I am starting to do…define success. Some argue E-learning is the future, it is not. It will not replace teachers. However, where distance learning is the only option, we should ensure that this e-learning is as of high standard as possible.
Can we make it as good as traditional learning…can we make it better? This is all contingent, on person, situation, subject.
Are there certain subjects which cannot be taught through e-learning, where laboratorial experiments/seminars are involved?
What guidelines can we put in place not to ensure success, but to prevent failure?
What happened in the UK e-U case? Why are there so many other cases of success?
Is there a standard class size, do we still need to employ people…to respond to e-mails, dedicated or will tutors do this as part of their job?
How will they be credited?
What if there is only 1 person who signs up to do a course, what if there are 1000?
How will work be assessed, how can one guarantee that the work submitted is the students own?
Is this the future, will all courses be offered online aswell as offline. Are you disadvantaged or less well taught?
How would module options work? What if nobody chooses that module?
Implementable? Practicality side?
