Workshop : ELKS



This two-hour session enabled delegates to learn more about the activities of the E-Learning and Knowledge Sharing (ELKS) Community, and consider how they can benefit from and contribute to the Community. ELKS Community, hosted by the Beyond Distance Research Alliance (BDRA), is affiliated with the UN GAID. The Community function as a Web-based collaborative network with regular key events carried out online, sharing resources and ideas. ELKS is concerned with:

  • Distance learning: research, contexts, learners & technologies
  • How mobile learning technologies can be deployed & integrated into the e-learning environment
  • Identify and transfer best practice, tools, talent, knowledge and expertise
  • Facilitating multi-stakeholder partnerships for e-learning & distance learning research

In this 2-hour knowledge sharing café session, delegates had the opportunity to review the resources available on the ELKS Community website and take part in moderated discussions on how best to benefit from ELKS and their contributions to the community.
