Our contribution to this year Global Time Conference about “E-Learning Model in Practice – Does it Work and Fit?” is now online available as draft version.
This paper presents a general model of e-learning in higher education and compares four running e-learning courses for further education to each other. The courses are described and their account within the model is discussed. The main question in this context is to find out whether it is possible to make a generalization over all courses or not? In fact of all different impact factors, such as teaching strategies, scopes and results as well as their changes during the courses, it can be concluded that this e-learning model works in general for this kind of courses anyway.
