At ECEL 2015 we want to establish what really matters in e-learning.

Increasingly e-learning is taking a logical place in the design of learning materials. It is often integrated in the design process of learning. A blended learning design cycle sets goals, works out how these goals are best achieved, and then fills out the appropriate methods of learning. In this way, e-learning can be chosen as a method of learning, and can be selected for its true value. We are expecting examples of great course design as well as examples of good practice, showing the real value of e-learning innovations. By investigating the design and rationale behind good practice individuals will be better able to apply e-Learning applications in their own setting.

E-learning is increasingly becoming a ubiquitous part of every stage of education from kindergarten through to postgraduate study. In the past few years we have seen the growth of personal mobile technologies which allow students to take their learning with them wherever they go so that learning has become a 24/7 opportunity. Our students are no longer finding that their learning is located in the physical spaces provided by their institution, but they can collaborate and share their learning experiences online wherever they are and whenever they want.

We look forward to exploring with delegates the recent research into the increasing variety of technology developments and to critique the ways in which technology can enhance learning for all of our students. Furthermore we want to consider the enhancements that technology affords in redesigning the curriculum to support student experiences of e-learning and the opportunities for designing students’ online learning pathways.
