Welcome to EEK (Eccentric Electronic Knowledge). This blog will have a post once a week on news related to electronic resources, technology, and libraries. It is meant to be interactive in that I hope to see others post their views/news on electronic resources and libraries, or ask electronic resource related questions that are thought provoking or eccentric.
This week’s bit: Define eLearning.
One website offers four definitions for eLearning based on four forms and various author’s views: Internet, Eccentric, Electronic, and Framework. (For more details on these definitions go to:
According to the eccentric based definition, eLearning involves almost everything related to electronics, from network or web-based learning to interactive TV, but not training. Go figure…at this website I found out about an article written by Peter Drucker in 2000. In it he defines eLearning as just-in-time education integrated with high velocity value chains. Now that’s an eccentric definition. I have included the citation to the article, for those who need to know more about velocity value chains.
