E-journey Definition and Explanation (E-learning)


What is an E-journey?

There may be other definitions, but I define an e-journey as:

A guided tour of websites designed to amuse, educate and develop the e-journey traveller. An e-journey is one form of e-learning or online training, but it is more like a map and travel guide than a formal learning program. It takes the reader to places of interest. Some will have a quick tour by skipping some sections. Others will have a detailed, all encompassing experience exploring important information resources.

It is up to the traveller.

You will determine the route of your journey. At various stages, you will come to a number of choices. The fork in the road that you take is up to you.


What's next?

Do you want to learn more about e-learning?

Implementing e-learning - an "how to" guide by Derek Stockley - important tips and information about the successful implementation of e-learning systems in companies and organisations. You can read it in PDF format (as published) here.

There is a free e-journey on the Derek Stockley site called: E-journey on E-learning. It provides information about many aspects of elearning including major features, major trends, key issues, leading experts and comprehensive resource links.

Paul Semmens, a PhD research student at the University of Tasmania said "I found your online 'E-journey on E-learning' most interesting and helpful."

The major topics in the e-learning e-journey include answers to such questions as:

What is e-learning? What types of e-learning are there?

What is the relationship of e-learning to online education and/or training?

How big is the e-learning industry? Who are the major players?

What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?

Where can I find out more information? What resources are available?

A second e-journey is about Web Site Design and Construction. This is an extensive e-journey. It is also free.

On the other hand, another approach can be a simple listing of relevant and worthwhile sites. An example is : Interesting "leadership" sites.

In between these two examples is a hybrid - some information - some interesting links - see : Top 50 Management Gurus (Business Intellectuals). This page lists the top 50 management gurus identified by Accenture, the international consulting firm. Extensive links to information about each guru is provided.
