My expectations of the training course were relatively high. Unfortunately I was not satisfied with it. I originally thaught that mastery would be the way the course was run. i.e. you must learn one area to complete the next. I was excited that I would learn alot about career development however, I found the course long winded and additionally everything was written with no interactivity. This is unsuitable for a kinesthetic (probably spelt incorrectly) learner like myself. I learnt almost nothing from this course, I almost fell asleep after five minutes of doing it, It was like reading a really, really, really boring book.

I would reccomend that you do not do a course from GCF learn free because it is poinless, one is better of paying for a good couse and actually gaining something.

Today i went on the net in search of my e newsletters and ezines, I managed to subscribe to three of four newsletters but struggled a little with the ezines. Most sites wanted money for their ezines but I managed to subscribe to two freebies. Im already getting alot of spam from them but as i subscribe to more over time im sure I will be able to pick the best ones, just as we discussed in our lectures. Some of the newsletters are really useful and provide heaps of links to some quality e-learning sites, this should be useful for future developments regarding the subject.

E-Learning may pose a problem for the less computer aware individuals in society. The fact that an I.T professional may find a particular E-Learning tool "user friendly" does not mean that your average factory worker or clerical officer will necissarily understand the way a program or device is used.
One mistake made by the larger populace is that e-learning is entirly web based. Through my extensive studies I have discovered an incredibly large amount of E-learning tools that I would have previously just named a training tool. I find it fascinating that something as basic as a video or learning via telephone would be classified as e-learning.
