Abstract: The panel will address the topic of eLearning from the adult learner's point of view. The objective is to expose the motivational, cognitive, metacognitive and social efforts required to succeed in an on-line web-based learning (WBL) environment. The panelists will describe strategies implemented in academic, workplace and military fields that support self-directed learning (SDL) skills required by eLearning. Discussion with participants will help designers, teachers, and human resource officers understand the importance of supporting self-learning skills in order to provide authentic and efficient access to eLearning. The discussion will also propose supportive solutions to alleviate the difficulties faced by the eLearner.
