Determining E-Learning Competencies: Using Centra[TM] to Collect Focus Group Data
Murphrey, Theresa Pesl; Dooley, Kim E.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v7 n1 p75-82 2006
This article shares the results of a needs assessment conducted to guide the development of an e-learning certificate program for implementation at Texas A&M University. Participants were asked to provide input regarding the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to work as an e-learning specialist. The qualitative data was collected using Centra[TM] as an interactive communication tool for discussion with respondents across the United States. The study also used theoretical triangulation to compare findings from this study to other studies conducted on distance education competencies. The findings reemphasize the importance of key competencies required by an e-learning specialist. (Contains 1 table.)
