Supporting Sustainable eLearning

Littlejohn, Allison (2003). Supporting Sustainable eLearning. ALT-J: Association for Learning Technology Journal, 11(3) pp. 88–102.




This paper draws upon work carried out within phase one of a national forum for support staff, funded by the UK Learning and Teaching Support Network Generic Centre. It sets out themes in current Learning Technology research within the context of institutional practice. It reports the responses of a range of e-learning support staff to new developments in the reuse and sharing of Learning Objects. The article highlights tensions across support units, inconsistencies in support provision and confusion over issues concerning different modes of teaching. It also forewarns a growing gap between institutional practice and research in the development of approaches to sustainable elearning.
