The purpose of this e-Activity is to:
  • Gain an overview of the e-Learning processes and categories used by the eMM
  • Improve your understanding of the eMM and its structural components.
  • Conduct an intuitive mini-assessment of an e-Learning course at an organisation of your choice with the view to identifying a category for more detailed assessment using eMM

  1. Read the summary on the eMM e-Learning processes (Version 2)
  2. Scan the detailed eMM process descriptions. (At this stage you are not required to consider the detail relating to the capability dimensions.)
  3. Download a copy of the eMM Processes (Version 2)PDF down.png.
  4. Select an e-learning course you are familiar with from an organisation of your choice. If you do not have access to a course at your institution you can use the SP4Ed mOOC or EDEM630 as an example.
  5. Scan the eMM process descriptions (Version 2.3) limited to the delivery dimension for each of the following areas and note where you feel your organisation (or course) demonstrates a high level of maturity:
    • Learning
    • Development
    • Support
    • Organisation

Learning outcome actions

  1. Using the eMM process descriptions (Version 2.3) conduct an intuitive assessment of the processes L1, L2 and L3 based on your knowledge of the course restricted to the delivery dimension. Intuitive means "what one feels to be true" without consulting the evidence. Use the eMM capability assessment scale of: Not Adequate (NA); Partially Adequate (PA); Largely Adequate (LA); or Fully Adequate (FA). (Write these down on your printout of the eMM processes).
  2. Prepare a blog post of 400 to 500 words publishing the results of your intuitive assessment for the delivery dimensions for the processes L1, L2 and L3.
    • Describe the organisation in two or three sentences (do not disclose or publish the name of the organisation unless you have permission from senior leadership of the organisation to do so. Remember that you blog is public). For example: I have selected a small secondary school in a rural area in New Zealand. The school's current e-learning approach is characterised by .... "
    • List the intuitive assessment results you have given to each process in the category for the delivery dimension.
    • Provide a value judgement on the anticipated reliability of your intuitive assessment. How accurate do you think your intuitive assessment is?
    • Publish a disclaimer that your assessment is based on intuition without necessarily consulting the evidence as part of a formal course activity.
