Resources Review of e-learning theories, frameworks and models
This review by Terry Mayes and Sara de Freitas is part of the e-learning Models Desk Study study carried out by Chimera: Institute of Socio-technical Innovation and Research, University of Essex under Professor Chris Fowler. The purpose of the desk study was to describe what is understood by effective practice in relation to e-learning; to identify and describe the range of models that inform the design and implementation of e-learning activities and to specify a planning tool to aid practitioners in their implementation of e-learning. This review is designed to inform practitioners, policy developers and other stakeholders who want to reflect more deeply upon their practice or gain a greater understanding about how theory and practice can be mapped together. This review reveals the pedagogic and pragmatic assumptions underlying a range of approaches to e-learning, classified into three broad areas. Proposes a principle of constructive alignment to ensure practice models are based on relevant theoretical frameworks. This link opens the report in PDF.
Resources Mapping Theory to Practice and Practice to Tool functionality based on the Practitioners' perspective
This study by Chris Fowler and Terry Mayes is part of the e-learning Models Desk Study study carried out by Chimera: Institute of Socio-technical Innovation and Research, University of Essex under Professor Chris Fowler. This study took a practitioner perspective and then explored the relationship between that perspective and existing theories (pedagogical , e-learning models etc), and existing resources (tools, technologies etc). The purpose of such mappings is to create theoretically grounded e-learning solutions as illustrated through a series of case studies. This report identifies key features of learning activity design and presents structured relations among these features in the form of (conceptually legitimate) exemplars or scenarios. This report is a PDF file.
Resources Assessing the relevance of the review of e-learning theories, frameworks and models and the mapping table to evaluators

Resources A typology of effective interventions that support e-learning practice
This paper by Rhona Sharpe is part of the Research Study on the effectiveness of resources, tools and support services used by practitioners in designing and delivering elearning activities – Moving on practice, carried out by Martin Oliver. The typology presents a number of characteristics of effective interventions and illustrates how these characteristics might operate in the context of working with resources, individuals and groups or wider change. The typology is not intended to be a 'how to' guide. The authors suggest here that the kind or type of intervention (which might be a resource, tool, service or combination of all of these) is less important than the way it is generated and used. The typology is also used to cross-reference the other project documentation.
Resources Representing practitioner experiences through Learning Design and Patterns
This paper by Patrick McAndrew reviews the potential of the learning design specification and an alternative framework of architectural patterns as means of representing practice, drawing on the findings of the project. A particular focus is on representing and sharing vocabularies. The paper is part of the Research Study on the effectiveness of resources, tools and support services used by practitioners in designing and delivering e-learning activites funded by the e-Learning Programme.
Resources The Effectiveness of Resources, Tools and Support Services used by Practitioners in Designing and Delivering e-Learning Activities: Final report

Resources Case Studies on Effective Practice with e-Learning – Illustrating effective practice
A series of case studies illustrating examples of EFFECTIVE practice in relation to e-learning in the post-16 and HE communities has been produced. The case studies illustrate a range of different approaches to e-learning, and include examples from further education, higher education and adult and community learning. Using the six requirements identified in the Research study (Work package 2), the programme set out to provide case studies that were ‘usable, contextualised, adaptable, designed to support professional learning and owned by the communities that produced them’. The case studies needed to focus on the issues that are of relevance to learning design, i.e. those features identified in the elearning models project: learner roles and needs, available tools and resources, subject domain. Some of these case studies are published in the Effective Practice with E-Learning Guide.
Resources Case Studies on Innovative Practice with e-Learning – Illustrating effective practice

JISC funded a practitioner trial of the LAMS (Learning Activity Management System) with 40 practitioners from HE, FE and ACL (Adult and Community Learning) between July 2004 and March 2005. The evaluation focused on the question ‘Does the use of a learning design tool such as LAMS support effective practice in designing for learning?’ Dr Liz Masterman and Dr Stuart Lee the report authors conclude that (p 41): ‘We can position LAMS as a tool which practitioners can profitably add to the repertoire already at their disposal – promoting motivation and participation in some circumstances and with some groups of learners.’ This link opens a pdf version of the report
