E-Learning in Scottish Further and Higher Education
Harvey, Bill; Beards, David
Education + Training, v46 n6-7 p353-360 2004
This paper describes the process and outcomes by which an e-learning strategy was developed for the Scottish further and higher education sectors. It summarises the context in which the Scottish Funding Councils have supported developments in Information and Communication Technology and e-learning and identifies the main external drivers which shaped policy development. The paper presents the main conclusions of the e-learning strategy and indicates the actions which the councils are now taking. The paper provides a useful case study of the process of strategy development at the national level and identifies key concepts which we in Scotland believe are essential components for the effective deployment of e-learning in colleges and universities.
