Users' Views on e-Learning: CEDEFOP Online Surveys. CEDEFOP Reference Series.
European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Thessaloniki (Greece).
The views of users of e-learning in Europe and elsewhere were examined through seven online surveys that were posted on the interactive World Wide Web site called The European Training Village. The surveys examined e-learning users' views regarding the following topics: technology-supported learning; e-mail in e-learning; trainers' skills for e-learning; the economics of e-learning; e-learning and adult basic skills; e-learning for people with disabilities; and training of trainers and teachers. The surveys attracted approximately 3,213 respondents, 19% of whom were trainers or teachers in schools and universities and 14% of whom were training managers or trainers in companies or the private sector. The following were among the key findings: (1) 42% of respondents said that 0-25% of their learning was currently supported by technology; (2) uses of e-mail in e-learning included sending instructions and assignments, surveying learner views, providing advice, and generating discussion; (3) costs of developing or purchasing e-learning products and services elicited the greatest concern in the survey on the economics of e-learning; (4) respondents were optimistic regarding e-learning's potential contribution to teaching adults in need of basic skills instruction and disabled individuals; and (5) most respondents anticipated spending more time on e-learning professional development in the future.
