      Edition 19 out now!

      You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Likewise, you can
      lead students to computers, but you can’t offer them engaging courses –
      unless VET practitioners have developed and honed the skill sets required to
      effectively implement e-learning.

      In this edition of The Knowledge Tree we expose the vital skill sets needed by
      vocational education and training (VET) practitioners to offer lively and
      engaging e-learning and to ensure classroom teachers and trainers aren’t left
      behind.

      Highlights:
      Internationally recognized futurist Elliott Masie offers a think-piece,
      Defining the ‘e’ in e-learning, in which he takes readers on a journey from
      e-learning’s humble beginnings to current global practices and future
      possibilities.

      Annie Fergusson, Benchmarking and Research Business Manager of the Australian
      Flexible Learning Framework (Framework), provides an overview of what must
      happen on a macro level if VET practitioners are to effectively update their
      skills to adapt to e-learning environments. She makes her points using recent
      VET research and the Framework’s 2009 annual Benchmarking survey.

      Cathy Moore, an international e-learning instructional designer, soon to tour
      Australia explains in an interview how we can 'dump the drone' of e-learning
      design and instead create engaging, memorable and lively e-learning.

      In addition, we offer several interviews with Australian e-learning
      practitioners as they consider, among other issues, the differences between
      skills needed for face-to-face teaching and e-learning, the effective use of
      Web 2.0 tools, and ‘the how’ in acknowledging new skill sets.

      Edition 19 also sees Sue Lapham, Western Australia representative on the
      Flexible Learning Advisory Group (FLAG), inviting VET practitioners to the new
      interactive Framework website. Here providers can develop e-learning skills
      sets and knowledge by finding resources and collaborating with others. To help
      introduce readers to this new e-learning hub, we offer Flash presentations
      based on Kim Edgar’s recent ‘e-Gems’ web-conferencing session.

      We hope you enjoy 'Exposing e-learning skills sets' edition 19 of The Knowledge
      Tree and, as always, we look forward to your feedback.
