The Current Status and Future of E-Learning in Taiwan
IETI Volume 47, Number 1, ISSN 1470-3297
Like any other modern, forward-looking and technologically advanced nation, Taiwan has realised the current and future importance of electronic learning--now commonly referred to as "e-learning". Bearing this in mind, some years ago, the Taiwanese government introduced a number of initiatives that were intended to promote the development and uptake of this important approach to learning, training and knowledge dissemination. These initiatives were embedded within a national framework for electronic learning called the "National Science and Technology Program for e-Learning" (ELNP). Following the first five-year phase of the national e-learning programme (2003-2007), the government of Taiwan initiated another five-year national programme called the "Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program" (TELDAP). A sub-project called "International Collaboration on e-Learning Project" is intended to focus on promoting the international visibility of Taiwan's e-learning research and e-learning industry. The aims of this project and the strategies that are being adopted for its implementation are briefly described in this article.
