Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich BWL - Personal und Organisation, Note: 1.3, Fachhochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Auf die Begeisterung über den neuen Trend "E-Learning" folgte schnell die Ernüchterung, nachdem erste Schwächen sichtbar wurden. Die Lernenden müssen sich in Eigeninitiative und Disziplin beweisen und das isolierte Lernen akzeptieren können: Mit der Weiterentwicklung des E-Learnings zum "Blended E-Learning" sollen diese Defizite behoben werden. Blended E-Learning als Kombination des E-Learnings mit Präsenzveranstaltungen ermöglicht ein zeit-, ortsunabhängiges und ganzheitliches Lernen. Um als Unternehmen langfristig wettbewerbsfähig zu sein, muss die Weiterbildung der Mitarbeiter auf hohem Niveau gehalten werden. Blended E-Learning kann dies leisten. Doch welche Vorteile hat diese Lernmethode? Wie lässt sie sich im Unternehmen integrieren und welche Risiken sind möglicherweise mit ihr verbunden? Diese und andere Fragen werden von der Autorin strukturiert und fachkundig beantwortet. Neben den Grundlagen und Zielen wird der Umsetzungsprozess von Blended E-Learning im Unternehmen beschrieben und auf der Grundlage empirischer Daten der Einsatz und die Akzeptanz dieser Lernform umfassend analysiert. Blended E-Learning hat das Potential, die Lernform der Zukunft zu sein!

Online Learning in Music: Foundations, Frameworks, and Practices offers fresh insights into the growth of online learning in music, perspectives on theoretical models for design and development of online courses, principles for good practice in online education, and an agenda for future research. Author Judith Bowman provides a complete overview of online education in music, including guidelines and accreditation standards for online instruction as well as a look at current research on online learning in music. She also explores several theoretical models for online course design, development, and implementation, before presenting a creative approach to online course design, both for fully online and also for blended courses. As a whole, the book challenges stereotypical views of professors as "sage on the stage" or "guide on the side," characterizing the online professor instead as Director of Learning. Necessary reading for all who work in online learning in music, it also suggests important ways both to prevent problems and also to resolve those that do arise.
