Learners will only make effective use of e-learning opportunities if they know why it will be of benefit and how it will help them achieve the assessed learning outcomes. Most adopt a form of cost-benefit analysis to decide whether or not a learning activity will aid their progress. Educators must ensure that those decisions are well-grounded by an understanding of the course outcomes. E-Learning is not simply a matter of delivery mechanisms: teachers need to reconsider the nature and circumstances of their learners, their subject and their pedagogic approach in order to transform their teaching and assessment activities to take advantage of the potential offered by e-learning.
