Rita Kizito, Nelson Mandela Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning. As we try to reposition teaching and learning at the core of the institution’s critical mission, e-learning is always at the forefront. My interest in this topic is getting some understanding of what we could do to accelerate elearning adoption -seeing that learning is a very human and social activity. How do we connect to the individuals on the other side of the technology? I am looking forward to this.
My names are Kolawole Akinjide ARAMIDE. I am working as a Research Fellow with the Centre for Educational Media Resource Studies, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. My research focus is in the area of ICT application in teaching and learning as well as in the managment of learning resources for teaching and learning in schools in Nigeria. I am interested in knowing more about how to maximise the usage of technologies in facilitating teaching and learning in basic and post-basic schools. I am very sure I will gain a lot from this seminar.
Hi, I am Johan Badenhorst. I am Head of e-Learning and Educational Technology at the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein. My interest is in evaluating e-learning implementations at universities and my PhD research is directly in this field. I developed a framework for this purpose. I would like to share with you and also get inputs that I believe will be valuable in my research.
I am Wondwossen Mulugeta from Addis Ababa University. You can call me Wondisho or Wonde. I have been working as a Lecturer at my University for the past 11 years and engaged in various eLearning projects. Currently I am working as a Project manager for eContent development for our Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.
I was one of the core team member of the eLearning system development project at the school of information science. I have also participated in e/merge 2012 as a trainee and conference facilitator.
Welcome Rita, Kolawole, Johan & Wondwossen. Looking forward to engaging with you over the next few days.
I’m Gerrit Wissing, a Senior Instructional Designer at Tshwane University of Technology. Like everywhere else, I suppose, measuring the impact of our online facilitation of learning effort is becoming increasingly important at our institution. This seminar comes at a very opportune moment for us, then. I think I’m going to learn a lot from Antoinette and out participants.
I’m Jolanda Morkel, a senior lecturer in Architecture at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and CPUT co-ordinator of the blended part time BTech programme in Architectural Technology presented in collaboration with OpenArchitecture. The programme optimises on-campus, office-based and online learning. I am passionate about using ICT to mediate learning, especially learning that is achieved through projects through enquiry and solving problems. I look foward to learning from my peers.
I’m so pleased to meet you all, albeit online. This is certainly a new and exciting endeavour for me.
I trust I will learn as much from you, as you will, hopefully learn from me!
I literally stumbled across the eLearning Maturity Model whilst conducting research on quality frameworks specifically in eLearning. I’m relatively new in the field of eLearning with a background in curriculum and professional development.
Looking forward to interacting with all tomorrow 🙂
Small world indeed. Lovely surprise to see you here.
I was just wondering if you have conducted any research to determine this ‘impact’ you’re referrring to. I can certainly relate though. With more resources being channeled into this ‘eLearning business’, we’re almost forced to show value for money…
My names are Emmanuel Oluwapelumi ONI
I am working as a Library Technologist with
the Centre for Educational Media Resource
Studies, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. My focus and research is on ICT in schools, application of ICT in school libraries, and mobile technology in conducting online exams. I am very sure I will gain a
lot from this group
Henry Mason & Annelise are looking into measuring the impact of a few projects – other than that, I’m not aware of a comprehensive review being undertaken on the scale intended by the model. I’ve invited some others from our institution too – I’m sure we can benefit a lot from using a model such as this one. I’m quite looking forward to learn from you.
