Five Stage E-Learning Model

I’ve been spending some time searching approaches to e-learning and the debate between behavioristic instruction and constructivist approaches. Constructivist as I am, I often find myself developing sessions that require behaviorist approaches, for instance having to develop measurable and observable learning objectives that parallel certain competencies to ensure my training is approved through training approval systems. In perusing approaches to e-learning, I came across Gilly Salmon who has developed a five stage model for the typical online learning process. It is quite interesting and after reviewing it, I see that my experience in LT800 is quite consistent with her model.

Here is a link to the model and the BLOG that has a lot of additional information about a MOOC she is involved in
