The E-learning Design and Development programme at Cork Institute of Technology is delivered entirely online using many of the same e-learning tools and technologies which also form the course curriculum. All registered students are also, uniquely, given access to a virtualised desktop which provides all their multimedia software and remote storage requirements for the duration of the course. 

Overview

E-learning Design and Development as a field of study at Cork Institute of Technology, as an approach to teaching and learning and as an industry, has evolved considerably over the last decade and a half. Governments and policy makers have made e-learning a central imperative of their political educational rhetoric and provide substantial funding initiatives to support its development and mainstreaming. Related policies, practices and requirements with regard to lifelong learning, and continuous education combine with the benefits and wider acceptance of e-learning as a delivery and support tool to make e-learning one of the most rapidly growing areas in both the worldwide education and training sector and the digital media sector today.

Learning outcomes

In the above context the programme seeks to produce developers of cutting edge, educationally effective e-learning solutions. Our graduates, subsequently, will go on to work as designers and developers either directly as part of the burgeoning e-learning sector or in support of in-house e-learning and learning technology departments which are becoming mainstream in a number of other areas and industries.
