Feel free to comment or ask questions on this event below before or after the event.


  1. I was sooo very sorry I missed this. But, I just viewed the recording and it was fabulous. Thanks for anchoring elearning into the instructional design process!

    I particularly loved how you acknowledged that many people start out by putting lectures on line and gradually evolve their practices over time. Informed by pedagogy of course!

    Thanks again. Looking forward to more ISD type topics!

  2. Hi Catherine,

    Thank you for a very informative and interesting webinar on elearning.

    Looking forward to more!

  3. Thank you both for your comments.

    Back in 2007 I attended a course by Netskills which I found great. As acknowledged on the first of my slides - much of my webinar is based on what I picked up there and also the many years I have been working with academics in TCD. The Netskills course was presented by Danny McAtominey - if any of you are interested in contacting him.

    I give this workshop as a face-to-face workshop in TCD over 2 hours and we spend an extensive time working on ideas the different academics bring along. We use the worksheets as a starting point and I like everyone to feel they have made a start and have something to take away with them in the end.

    If an academic cannot make the course then I meet them for a consultancy where we would cover the same content - but I think they get more from attending the workshop as there is a chance to trash out ideas with your peers. It always surprises me what others can offer by way of ideas.

    I am delighted so many joined up to attend last friday and that you got something from it. That might encourage me to try doing another ha!


  4. A lot of e-learning training courses offers evaluation courses as well as online education and professional development. This enable individuals to take their needed credits at the comfort of their own home, or just using their laptops they can easily access their online courses.
