The effective implementation of emerging educational technologies is rapidly becoming of strategic importance for many branches of education and training within UK, Europe and across the world. The diverse range of learning activities on the MEd in eLearning programme will help develop the critical understanding and skills to address the exciting challenges and opportunities which the new developments present.
The students actually study key theoretical and practical issues involved in learning, teaching and assessment online; policies and aspects of e-learning in relation to wider organisational, national and global contexts; issues in the effective implementation of new and emerging technologies; and the theory and practice of educational research within the context of e-learning.
The course deepens students’ understanding and skills in relation to e-learning within the professional working context, including the design, production and management of resources for e-learning and the development and delivery of online learning courses. Students will have a flexible structure tailored to their personal and professional needs, offering a unique opportunity to meet and interact with professionals from all over the world, supported by online tutors.
