Abstract

E-learning promises the ability for people to learn at a time and place to suit their needs. However, we frequently assume they can automatically adapt to an online environment. This is not the case. They need focused support on their journey from an e-user through to developing into an e-learner. However, many fail to complete this journey. Therefore, it is essential we identify how best to support them if we are to fully realize the potential of e-learning. This paper builds on previous research and utilizes the experiences of 212 e-moderators, from a range of disciplines and countries, and maps the transition of an e-user into an e-learner onto a 5-Stage online learning model.
