Online learning effectiveness

Pete Cannell has written an opinion article which has been published in The Scotsman on 19 October 2016 about the effectiveness of online learning.  He explores the growing ubiquity of smartphone use for finding information and learning new skills and the need to transfer these self-directed learning skills to confidence for formal learning.  He also discusses how the social element of online learning helps learners make the best use of learning materials online even while the materials can be studied in isolation.  He explains how the OEPS project working with partners to create courses is resulting in online courses which combine expert subject content with good pedagogical expertise.
