This report builds on the previous IES report 'Exploring e-Learning', which, in providing an overview of the subject, identified the importance of supporting learners in this new learning environment.

This report examines the literature, explores lessons learnt from the use of e-learning in higher education, and uses case studies of organisations who have been putting e-learning into practice, in order to explore how they can support individuals through all stages.

The research is set within an exciting context where models of learning are changing. Thus e-learning can be used not only for information provision, performance support and instruction but also for knowledge management.
