Agile Project Management for e-Learning Developments
Doherty, Iain
Journal of Distance Education, v24 n1 p91-106 2010
We outline the project management tactics that we developed in praxis in order to manage elearning projects and show how our tactics were enhanced through implementing project management techniques from a formal project management methodology. Two key factors have contributed to our project management success. The first is maintaining a clear educational focus in our elearning projects whilst defining project success in terms of facilitating and/or enhancing student learning. The second is ensuring that our processes mesh with the collegial nature of a university culture. Our paper concludes by discussing the need to engage with institutional strategic and organizational concerns in order to increase institutional capacity for elearning.
