TechChange is excited to launch a new blog series dedicated to e-Learning for educators and trainers.  The series will highlight emerging technologies, best practices in instructional design and pedagogy, and important industry trends.

The very nature of the way we learn and the way we teach are continually transformed by the implementation of online technologies in education and training. According to a recent report, Learning on Demand: Online Education in the United States, 2009 online enrollments in higher education are increasing at a rate of 17%, far exceeding the meager 1.2% overall growth in higher education.  More than one in four higher education students now take at least one course online.  Increases in distance learning enrollments at community colleges are even higher at 22%, according to the Instructional Technology Council’s Distance Education Survey Results.
