by John P. Cuthell
International Journal of Web Based Communities (IJWBC), Vol. 4, No. 3, 2008

Abstract: This paper describes a number of small-scale studies that focus on the ways in which e-learning can be integrated in a range of settings for teachers and their pupils. They examine a range of projects: those based in classrooms, home-school environments, after school activities, school-based Continuous Professional Development (CPD), subject-based CPD in national contexts and post-graduate accreditation. The work of primary and secondary school pupils and adult learners is considered.
