Integrated E-learning

It is widely recognized that online and e-learning is no longer an exclusive approach
used only in distance education and in isolation from traditional education programmes. A real difficulty facing educators and trainers is how to integrate these
new learning methods and embed them in established and existing forms of
learning, teaching or training.
This book forms a serious, in-depth study of the subject and proposes that
e-learning is not simply a matter of ‘digitizing’ traditional materials, but involves a
new approach, which must take into account pedagogical, technological and
organizational features to form a well-designed education system.
A practical focus is maintained throughout, with advice on implementation and
case studies drawn from the contributors’ considerable experience.
Integrated E-Learning is essential reading for anyone wanting to implement, design,
develop or deliver e-learning or training courses.
Wim Jochems, Jeroen van Merriënboer and Rob Koper are professors at the
internationally-renowned Educational Technology Expertise Centre at the Open
University of the Netherlands, Heerlen. Wim Jochems is also General Director
of the Educational Technology Expertise Centre at the University.

Series editor’s foreword
We are all aware that the educational environment in which we are working is
changing, and changing dramatically; it is an environment that is responding to
increasing numbers of learners, mature and part-time, often within a shrinking
resource allocation. It is an environment in which governments typically stress the
importance of investing in people via education and training, note the power of
the knowledge economy and expound the potential of the new technologies –
particularly e-learning. The government push, combined with the pull from
learners – the growing expectations of our learners to study at their own pace,
where and when they want – is transforming conventional teaching institutions
into flexible learning institutions. The massive growth in the number of distance
learning courses available (see http://icdl.open.ac.uk), and online courses available
(see http://www.dlcoursefinder.com) is not just occurring in educational institutions but is mirrored in industrial, commercial and public service contexts. In my
own university, for example, every faculty learning and teaching plan has identified
e-learning as a priority, with the projected growth in the number of staff involved
in designing and delivering online components of courses set to triple over the
next two years (see http://www.mmu.ac.uk/vitael). I suspect a similar picture
exists in your institution.
There is no shortage of virtual learning environments, technical fixes and
enthusiasts. Furthermore, there is no shortage of content available; content that is
often dumped onto the WWW and which has been termed computer supported
page turning. However, where is the advice and assistance, based on models and
theories, research evidence and good practice, that will help you and me design,
produce and present our courses so as to make the most effective use of existing
media and to provide a high quality learning experience? The answer is simple –

the collection of chapters in this book, and the associated Web site (www.iel.nl).
This book is noteworthy for several reasons. First, the editors explain how an
integrated approach to e-learning can contribute to societal and technological
changes: changes that are based on the most appropriate use of the different media
used in teaching, not just those associated with communications and information
technology. Second, the book seeks to balance the pedagogic, technical and
organizational elements that must be in harmony if any course is to be successful.
The three-part structure addresses the instructional design issues associated with
e-learning, the role of learning technologies in the development of integrated elearning, and its implementation and evaluation. Third, it presents accounts from
almost 30 scholars who have come together to share their thinking with you.
Whether you regard yourself as a teacher or trainer, instructional designer or
course developer, I believe the insights, models, arguments and examples this book
provides, positioned firmly within a constructivist perspective, are likely to be
invaluable to you and your learners. If we are to meet the challenge presented by
the changes we face, we need more books like this one.

Integrated e-learning refers not only to Web-based learning but also to using the
Web for learning in such a way that it is effectively embedded in a well-designed
educational system with pedagogical, technological and organizational features that
contribute to achieving its goals. Integrated e-learning often reflects elements from
face-to-face learning, distance education, and where appropriate forms of structured on-the-job training and practical work. Because of the deliberate mix of Webbased learning, classroom learning, self-study and learning on the job, integration
is needed so that the various elements are combined in the best possible way in
order to facilitate reaching the desired learning goals. The main issues discussed in
this book are not about e-learning as a solitary mode of learning, but rather about
how to arrive at a form of e-learning which has manifest added value with regard
to effectiveness, efficiency and attractiveness when compared with more conventional ways of learning.
The most common approach to e-learning is characterized by adding new technology to conventional forms of education.The traditional pedagogical approaches
to learning generally remain unchanged in spite of the fact that the introduction
of the new medium typically demands new instructional methods. At the Open
University of the Netherlands, more than five years of hands-on experience with
Web-based distance learning has demonstrated that e-learning is not simply a
matter of ‘digitizing’ traditional learning materials. Moreover, several research
projects have revealed more effective approaches to incorporating e-learning into
educational programmes. The results of our practical experience and of these
research projects are reflected in this book. Our starting point is not e-learning as
one specific educational method. Instead we set out from an analysis of integrated
learning goals or complex professional skills, and ask which instructional processes



can (and not ‘must’) be supported by a combination of e-learning and other
educational methods in order to reach those goals.
The main reason for writing this book is that the Educational Technology
Expertise Centre of the Open University of the Netherlands receives a large number of enquiries pertaining to the design, development and implementation of elearning in the field of higher education, both from traditional, campus-based
institutes and institutes for distance education. We felt that our hands-on experience with e-learning and the results of our research projects would be of interest
to our colleagues in the field of post-secondary higher education, and business and
industrial training. It was therefore decided to treat a number of important aspects
of integrated e-learning in a more or less structured fashion, which is possible
because most of the contributions result from an integrated research and technology development programme on instructional design and learning technologies
conducted by the Educational Technology Expertise Centre.
This book is intended for instructional designers, developers of course materials,
educational technologists, consultants, training department managers, faculty
managers, course directors, teachers and trainers at the post-secondary level, and
students in educational sciences who are interested in introducing e-learning and
developing e-learning materials. Guidelines and dos and don’ts are presented in
each chapter, and examples have been included where necessary. Extracts from
e-learning materials are available on the accompanying Web site: www.iel.nl.
However, it should be noted that purely technical and infrastructural issues
concerning e-learning environments fall beyond the scope of this book.
We should like to thank all our colleagues who have contributed to this volume,
not only by writing their articles, but also by providing valuable comments on
successive drafts both of the individual chapters and of the work as a whole. In
particular we should like to mention Marion Timmermans, who provided invaluable organizational support and kept an eagle eye on the timetable; Chris Sion for
editing our English; and Rinnie Oey who assisted in finalizing the manuscript
according to the editorial guidelines.We should also like to thank Jeroen Berkhout
and Jeroen Storm for developing the Web site that accompanies this book. Finally,
we should like to express our appreciation to Fred Lockwood who encoura
