Advantages of eLearning
Could online learning work for you?

Concerns with eLearning
Open: Loosely defined, open courses offer educational materials, syllabi, etc. globally via the open web to anyone wishing to learn. Actual implementation and resources can vary for various reasons - the decision of those (individual or institution) offering the course.
Closed: Closed courses frequently, though not always, more closely mirror the traditional classroom. Information is limited to a set number of participants. The teacher controls the course content, instruction, and sequence. Allows for collaborative learning in a private setting.

“Open Access enhances research communication by making
the results of publicly funded research available to all.

build on it and there is less duplication of effort. Researchers

more widely read and cited, institutions enjoy an enhanced
reputation as their research becomes more visible, funding
agencies see a greater return on their investment, and
publishers find that the impact of their journals increases.
As a result, publicly funded research has more impact and
society as a whole benefits.”

Do you have any previous experience with open and/or closed online courses?
Why do you think an instructor would choose one over the other?
