6C learning introduction (part 3/3)

The 6 dimensions of ‘6C learning’

What do we need to achieve an effective and efficient e-learning solution? In what follows, a pragmatic framework is presented to design, implement, reflect on, sustain and evaluate the successfulness of e-learning projects (see figure 2). There are six components, all pertaining to the question how to make e-learning work. All six criteria start with a C to create a comprehensive whole and a tool that is practical. In the end, the framework is meant for helping management better manage e-learning projects.


We have been observing e-learning and related projects over the past 5 to 10 years and noticed a shift in their characteristics and goals. We dubbed it the evolution from 1st to 2nd generation projects. (For a more detailed discussion on this evolution, check out the documents on this page. We have formulated the differences between 1st and 2nd generations a bit black and white for illustration purposes.) From this comparison, we derived the six dimensions that are critical for making e-learning more successful. E-learning that works is the result of six dimensions of the framework we here present, the 6C learning framework.
