Online learning - threat or salvation for further education?

A new white paper aims to provide a considered answer to the question of whether online learning poses a threat or salvation for further education.This topic is very current, coming at a time when the Further Education Learning Technology Action Group (FELTAG) reports its recommendations to the group’s creator, Matthew Hancock, Minister of State for Skills and Enterprise.Authored by David Patterson, director of research and consultancy organisation, Learning Light, the white paper highlights the role technology will play in all of the changes now sweeping through further education and training and illuminates what is now becoming a global learning marketplace.Using PEST (political, economic, social and technological) analysis, the fourteen page report pulls from a wide range of sources to reach its conclusions. Commissioned by, e-learning provider, Virtual College, the white paper is available free of charge at: further information, please contact:Roger Moore, Virtual College
