Learning from the UKeU experience

Learning from the UKeU experience
The UKeU represents the most important foray into e-learning yet undertaken. Its early demise sounds a warning note to all of us involved in e-learning. It is important that we learn from this experience so as not to replicate its mistakes, but also not to allow its failure on some levels to drown out the enormous potential and good practice which it instituted on other levels.
This paper presents some of the initial findings of a series of studies documenting the UKeU approach to and experience of e-learning. It will focus on the experiences and lessons learned of members of the learning technology team within the UKeU, or people working closely with them. Our particular interest is to describe the various roles and approaches to e-learning. We will concentrate in this paper on the organisational cultures and processes. The paper will critique the relationships between the different stakeholders involved in the experience and the associated impact on culture. In particular we will explore the relationship between the documented UkeU vision and how this was instantiated and its impact on practice. The paper also explores the roles of the different stakeholders, their perceptions of the project and their inter-relationship. One of the most important findings of the research is the mismatch between those with more of a business-orientated vision for UKeU and those more interested in the academic aspects and the potential educational innovation.

Abstract

The UKeU represents the most important foray into e-learning yet undertaken. Its early demise sounds a warning note to all of us involved in e-learning. It is important that we learn from this experience so as not to replicate its mistakes, but also not to allow its failure on some levels to drown out the enormous potential and good practice which it instituted on other levels.
This paper presents some of the initial findings of a series of studies documenting the UKeU approach to and experience of e-learning. It will focus on the experiences and lessons learned of members of the learning technology team within the UKeU, or people working closely with them. Our particular interest is to describe the various roles and approaches to e-learning. We will concentrate in this paper on the organisational cultures and processes. The paper will critique the relationships between the different stakeholders involved in the experience and the associated impact on culture. In particular we will explore the relationship between the documented UkeU vision and how this was instantiated and its impact on practice. The paper also explores the roles of the different stakeholders, their perceptions of the project and their inter-relationship. One of the most important findings of the research is the mismatch between those with more of a business-orientated vision for UKeU and those more interested in the academic aspects and the potential educational innovation.
