The current way most people look at e-learning is flawed, and this means they are missing its full potential. Delivering E-Learning describes a new and better way of understanding e-learning. Kenneth Fee looks at objections to e-learning and poor past practice before presenting a new strategic approach. Fee places the emphasis firmly on learning, not the technology, de-mystifying the jargon and de-bunking industry myths.
