Title: The E-learning Cabaret: do's and don'ts in E-Learning Design
Authors: Westera, Wim
Keywords: e-learning
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: ICWE GmbH. Berlin
Abstract: E-learning is great fun! We enjoy our work, its challenges and its future perspectives. As visitors of Online-Educa we seem to share an unconcerned optimism and belief in the significance of topics like communities of practice, technology standards, re-usable learning objects, portfolios and so on. To some extent this enthousiasm is hilariously naïve. An outsider’s view may be quite informative here: it would equate our conference with a religious sect loaded with ideological bias rather than a meeting of sensible academics that put things into perspective. This “stand-up” presentation holds a mirror up to our faces, while it treats the paradoxes, inconsistences and blunders of our well intended e-learning efforts. It makes e-learning double fun and it is instructive as such.
