INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION:
GLOBAL eLEARNING: PERSPECTIVES
FROM EUROPE, ASIA, AND THE UNITED STATES
6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Open to the public.
Limit of 60 participants. Registration necessary.
The projections for global eLearning opportunities for the academic,
government, and corporate sectors are speculated to growth tremendously
over the next several years. The rise of the Knowledge-based economy,
the eBusiness/eCommerce wave, and the development of Internet-related
technologies provide the basis for this projected growth. What opportunities
exist for these various sectors? Who is the enduser(s)? What solutions
are currently available for deployment? What market needs are currently
met and which one are not? Where are the new opportunities? How
will eLearning opportunities be delivered to the enduser? How do
cultural factors impact eLearning market opportunities? Is online
learning different in Europe, Asia, and the United States? How do
these cultural differences impact the methodology, the content,
and delivery of of eLearning solutions? What about the corporate
vs. residential infrastructure? What are the obstacles?
Our panel of experts will discuss answers to these questions, focusing
on what components of eLearning systems and solutions can be ‘global’
and which ones need to be customized to accommodate the ‘local’
cultural environment. Net-based infrastructure, technology, standards,
methodology and delivery for content, and business models will also
be discussed between the panelists and the audience participants.
