Electronic Journal of e-Learning, v4 n1 p7-14 2006
MyGfL which stands for Malaysian Grid for Learning is a One-Stop-Center for quality assured online learning content, tools and services with the aim to promote and support the lifelong learning agenda in Malaysia. It is a platform that enables anyone to learn, unlearn and relearn from anywhere at anytime through any web browser so as to accelerate the growth of K-Society. The main objectives of MyGfL are to enhance discoverability of e-learning content from heterogeneous sources through the use of metadata, to develop e-learning standards to ensure conformance and adoption of best practices in e-learning content and systems, to provide e-Learning systems and tools to enable and support e-Learning activities and processes for the purpose of lifelong learning, and also to encourage the sharing and development of local/indigenous content. Pilot programs have been conducted at different levels of the Malaysian society where processes and factors involved in implementing e-learning to the community and observations of societal acceptance of e-learning were noted. Utilization of MyGfL by the pilot groups has furnished vital information regarding acceptance/perception of use, current standards of computer literacy and skills. This case study will depict the impact of MyGfL with regards to its objectives and public perception towards MyGfL as a platform for lifelong learning.
