3. How to use Electronic Learning Environmentsin
the Higher Education
ON-CAMPUS EDUCATION
As supporting element in traditional classroom
courses to increase the course quality.
To provide such special courses for students
which cannot be organized in the students own
home unit (networking needed between the
educational units).
To provide normal courses for part-time
students who cannot attend the regular education
for family or work reasons so that they can
complete their degrees.
12
OFF-CAMPUS EDUCATION
To deliver online courses for professional
development for adult students (already
possessing a degree) who need further
professional education.
To deliver whole degree programmes i.e. almost
all courses online for adult students without a
degree.

4. What is Happening Globally,in Europe and in
Finland ?
GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
Online education is dominated by
North-Americans, some European countries (mainly
U.K.) and Australia -gt English language is
dominating.
In many countries (especially in U.S.) online
education is seen as a future business
possibility (a way to get export income in the
information society).
Virtual universities are being developed all
over the world.
New, aggressive players are attending the
online education market.
14
DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE
European Union is funding development of online
education via many research programs.
In Lisbon 23 - 24.3.2000 the Heads of States
and Governments set the objective of becoming
"the most competitive and dynamic
knowledge-driven economy in the world.
Europe enjoys one of the highest levels of
education, has the necessary investment capacity
but, unfortenately, still lags far behind in the
use of the new information and communication
technologies.
eLearning is designed to enable Europe to catch
up by intensifying its efforts. It implements and
extends into education and training the eEurope
action plan.

Vision of the National Strategyin Finland
By the year 2004 Finland will be one of the
leading knowledge and interaction societies.
Success will be based on citizens' equal
opportunities to study and develop their own
knowledge and extensively utilize information
resources and educational services.
A high-quality, ethically and economically
sustainable mode of operation in network-based
teaching and research will have been established.

5. Conclusions by Ms. Carol Vallone, CEO of
WebCT WebCT is the market leader in the online
higher education courseware marketplace
Distance learning and web-enhanced learning are
happening today, not in some future.
Distance Learning has a lot in common with
Regular education.
In general, both students and faculty members
report that they are closer to each other in
these electronic courses than they are in the
classroom.
Good pedagogy is good pedagogy in Electronic
Learning Environment, too.
