Abstract

Given the crucial role played by universities in a knowledge-based society, understanding how and under what conditions e-learning (used synonymously with online learning or OL) can improve access to graduate studies is of the highest importance to today’s growing global economy. Over the past decade, phenomenal advances have been made in the application of communication and information technologies to support student learning in higher education. Yet, in proportion to overall provision of higher education, the use of technology by faculty for graduate-level e-learning has been minimal, especially among regular faculty. This paper presents initial data from pilot studies underway in two Canadian universities as well as an emerging network of researchers interested in the role of instructionally-designed e-learning in higher education.
