Abstract

The purpose of this poster presentation is to illustrate the various integrated factors that impact on the design of e-learning environments for engineers. Central to this, are the different learning principles, theories, and domains that need to be considered when designing e-learning content. General e-learning design issues are summarised, with specific topics highlighted for the engineering environment. In developing e-learning environments, the focus can be directed too much on the technology with the actual content being considered and added afterwards. E-learning providers need to be aware of the fundamental factors that should be considered to produce and maintain an effective e-learning environment. As the factors cannot be compared directly, a framework is developed that groups associated issues together as philosophy, content, delivery, management, or technology categories, in order to provide guidance for designing successful e-learning environments.
