Abstract

The allure of eLearning is hard to deny. We’ve become comfortable with the idea that everything can be learned online -- through a website or watching a video. eLearning appeal to digital natives and allow students to work independently. However, it is important to consider that online learning must include learning and therefore assessment of learning. The ideas presented in this article will help you evaluate online learning objects, defined by Wiley as “any digital resource that can be reused to support learning” (2000, p.7) using a student-centered approach to ensure that learning remains the focus while using educational technologies to teach information literacy.
