  1. A really interesting piece of research and thank you for sharing.
    I have been reading about how the term e-learning should no longer be used since learners don’t care particularly about how its categorized, but more about what the content was. Your report seems to indicate that the discussions with the students went beyond the epistemology of e-learning. I wonder if you could elaborate on this. As I understand, this research has shown that whilst the students appreciated the RLO they also seemed to acknowledge that the online world will never replace vital human contact.

    1. Thanks Rae. Yes I think that was the students general perception: they appreciated the technology (RLO) but are acutely aware that it is myth to think that it will completely replace human interaction. Also, the students we interviewed were explicit in differentiating between use of technology in day to day life and using it for education.
