Integrated Solutions to E-Learning Implementation: Models, Structures and Practices at Trinity Western University
Laird, Philip G.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v7 n3 Fall 2004
Trinity Western University's development of an integrated and seamless online learning community, intersecting with the traditional face-to-face educational enterprise, has progressed rapidly since the creation of Global Learning Connections in 2002. The development of this perpetual learning infrastructure has necessitated the resolution of four key issues in online learning: ownership and control of online educational products; curricular quality and mission-compatibility of online educational products; service to and satisfaction of learners in the online educational realm; and enterprise-wide integration of online education at all levels of TWU as an evolving organization. Various models and approaches are presented with emphasis placed on the direction TWU has taken in preparation for lifelong education in the knowledge age.
