The eLearning Nomad blog

The eLearning Nomad blog is authored by Anouk Janssens-Bevernage and occasional guest bloggers. Anouk runs the international e-learning company ‘DynaMind eLearning’ and the blog is a collection of reflections on her work and all things e-learning. Apart from developing the packaged e-learning commonly seen in this sector, DynaMind eLearning’s most visible niche is collaborative problem-based e-learning. Anouk has developed an eWorkshop model based on these principles. It is popular in sectors where learners’ own experience (and reflection/feedback on these experiences) as well as collaboration with peers should be an important part of the learning process. Blog readers who are interested in more detailed information about the eWorkshop model are invited to subscribe to a bi-monthly newsletter ‘eLearning Together’.
