Well after feeling quite apprehensive about this course I am finding that by immersing myself more in the content and becoming familiar with the different processes it is all becoming much easier. As someone that is part of Generation X I have always felt a little behind (and jealous of) those technologically savvy individuals that form Generation Y. Learning Management is the way forward for teaching in the future and as such Learning Managers need to possess futures oriented capabilities (Smith, Lynch & Knight, 2007).
In the future the use of pencil and paper, text books and blackboards with the teacher delivering the content will be replaced with ICT's such as internet, email, SMS and multi-modal delivery methods (Smith, Lynch & Knight, 2007). For me, this means updating and continuing to update my knowledge and skills in the rapidly changing world of technology. E-learning.........bring it on!
