Abstract

The implementation and integration of e-learning applications and approaches is now widespread in all sectors of education in many countries of the world. The UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) is currently investing considerable sums to support and promote the development of the technological infrastructure, re-usable innovations and pedagogical frameworks that will significantly improve the role and impact of e-learning across all sectors of post-16 and higher education. This paper will report the findings from a project that was commissioned during the early stages of their current programmes that produced 'Case studies of innovative e-learning practice to support the e-learning and pedagogy programme'. These case studies are representations of successful innovation that aim to 'educate about practice' and 'move practice on' in the UK. This paper will present the rationale for selecting these cases, followed by a concise description of each, prior to presenting a synthesis and critique that considers 'what' made these successful innovations 'work'.
