Learning and Teaching Matters

The Tangible benefits of E-Learning

Posted on: 6 May, 2008

JISC infoNet, the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) and The Higher Education Academy have collaborated on a project to make some kind of sense of the diversity of current e-learning practice across the sector and to seek out evidence that technology-enhanced learning is delivering tangible benefits for learners, teachers and institutions.

The project findings are presented in their recently-published report and as a two-page summary. Some benefits were hard to measure and quantify, and the case studies were limited to only sixteen institutions. However, according to the study, there appears to be “clear evidence” of many good returns on investment in e-learning. These include improved student pass rates, improved student retention, and benefits for learners with special needs.
