e-Learning and Libraries

Two recent reports are pretty good.
I’ve already mentioned the Educause report on Students & Information Technology here which reviews student perceptions of IT, including that they see curriculum & technology as intertwined.
This week the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) released Libraries and E-Learning – Final Report of the CARL E-Learning Working Group . “The Report finds that libraries’ ‘pull’ service model agrees well with progressive higher education teaching and learning models. However, although library staff work closely with faculty at the local level on course design and content, librarians have not yet assumed these responsibilities in broader online learning policy or Learning Management System design.”
John Teskey, CARL President stated “This report clearly identifies some of the key areas where libraries can partner within the Academy to provide an enhanced learning environment for our students”.
