What is E-Learning

What is E-learning?

It is important that we all have a shared understanding of what we actually mean by ‘e-learning’. 

  • Enabling e-Learning is defining ‘e-learning’ as learning and teaching that is facilitated by or supported through the appropriate use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). 

  •  e-Learning can cover a spectrum of activities from supporting learning to blended learning (the combination of traditional and e-learning practices), to learning that is delivered entirely online.

  •  Whatever the technology, however, learning is the vital element. 

  • e-Learning is not simply associated with modes of delivery or the functionality of a particular technology, but forms part of a conscious choice of the best and most appropriate ways of promoting effective learning.

  • Best practice e-learning enables accessible, relevant, and high-quality learning opportunities that improve student engagement and achievement. 

  •  e-Learning has the potential to transform the way teaching and learning takes place. It is about using technologies effectively across the curriculum to connect schools and communities and to provide accessible, relevant, and high-quality learning opportunities so that every student is better able to achieve their full potential. 

  •  St Josephs School is able to provide great access to the curriculum through the use of technology.

  • We have a great ratio of 1:2 devices to students which enables us to utilise our wireless internet connection effectively to enhance the teaching and learning process.
