Abstract:

These proceedings provide yet another opportunity to review and reflect on a range of papers and case studies presented and discussed in Stellenbosch. For those who did not attend, these double peer refereed papers offer an overview of the breadth of e-learning approaches taken by a wide spread of defence related academies, colleges, and organisations from Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America. These presentations and the collected papers included here offer insights into the many creative ways in which e-learning is put to use in widely differing, and often challenging defence-related contexts. The papers bear witness to the definition of quality as fitness for purpose in that e-learning practices, while varying enormously, can provide timely and effective solutions to the challenging demands posed by very different defence-related learning environments. As you will deduce from the papers, technology is merely the starting point. Given the constant developments in technologies and contrasting contexts, the papers therefore reflect different levels of analysis different emphases on theory, practice, and research different approaches to planning and implementation and different reactions to practical problems.
