This project attempts to foster the use of the WLE Centre's advanced technological resources for the benefit of work-based learners. The aim is to establish creative and flexible learning opportunities for learners by using real-time, media-rich web conferencing and asynchronous web streaming technologies, from audiographic and video conferencing to video streaming and podcasting. The project intends to establish a connection between existing e-learning models and a set of application scenarios, thus providing a pedagogically sound basis as well as first-hand experiences with and guidelines for using the WLE Centre's technologies.
The project builds on findings from an earlier research project. It also captures synergies from a parallel research project, headed by Dr Sara de Freitas, and connects to the work of the Centre for Distance Education, University of London, thus providing a direct opportunity to examine the impact of the technology on education professionals in a particular work context.
