Inclusive E-learning Project: Australian Flexible Learning Framework

The Inclusive e-Learning Project aims to increase the uptake of e-learning in target areas. Research conducted by the 2005 Project found engagement, participation, completion and employment outcomes to be major issues for learners with disabilities and young learners.

The 2005 case studies identified e-learning as pivotal in providing access and inclusion for this diverse group. In 2006 the Project will again focus on e-learning for two target groups:
- learners with disabilities
- young people in the 15 - 19 age group (including VET in Schools, disengaged youth and school-based apprenticeships).

The project site provides links to :

The Youth Policy and Program Research Report is well worth a read. The findings of the report cover:

  • Features of young learners
  • Pedagogy, andragogy, heutagogy and constructiveism
  • Issues relating to the delivery of e-learning
  • Rural and remote issues
  • Indigenous
  • New technologies - M-learning, multi-authoring via the web, MP3 and audio devices

The report also has 29 pages providing descriptions and hotlinks to papers, case studies and reports that formed the resource material for the report.
