This symposium will provide attendees with a broad perspective on the myriad issues now associated with e-learning. E-learning continues to expand in terms of the number of e-learning opportunities that are available world-wide. As more and more e-learning is delivered, the complexity of this mode of delivering instruction increases. A number of issues arise, and these will be addressed in this symposium. Key themes of the papers to be delivered include defining what is meant by e-learning; meeting the challenge of delivering e-learning in the K-12 arena; using adaptive learning objects in e-learning; providing faculty development to support effective e-learning; identifying effective, research-based instructional strategies for e-learning; and finally, considering the role that virtual worlds may play in distance education.
