The idea to initiate an e-learning education programme was born among a circle of CARNet employees and close associates in the spring of 2003, and the first generation of attendants was enrolled in the E-learning Management programme in the autumn of 2004. Since then, 9 generations with a total of 450 attendants successfully completed the programme.
The following three one-year programmes, developed in cooperation with the University of British Columbia from Canada, are held as part of the E-learning Academy:
The programme includes the strategic planning of introducing e-learning, setting up and applying the corresponding organisational models for e-learning and the corresponding model for the selection of technology.
The programme includes subjects from the fields of pedagogy, psychology, sociology and communication sciences. Future e-tutors will first of all define their role in the process of e-learning, and then deal with the various types of support that the attendants will need in the online environment.
E-learning Course Design
The programme primarily includes the principles of creating online courses by using information and communication technologies. The attendants will, while improving their technical expertise, learn the techniques necessary for the development of multimedia education materials and familiarise themselves with the functioning of e-learning systems.
Each programme runs for one academic year (two semesters). The first semester consists of three courses, which are the same for attendants of all programmes. The second semester consists of courses dealing with subjects specific for each programme. The courses for all three programmes are held online, along with three workshops held in the classroom during both semesters. All three programmes feature additional content in the E-learning Laboratory, a group of resources in which attendants can try out a series of e-learning tools and technologies.
