eLearning Central


eLearning Central (eLC) is an educational resource portal developed by Richard Gentle to bring together, and provide access to, some of the most useful information and resources connected to education and learning that currently exists on the web.

Vehicles - The Race
Creative Play - Learning in Context

After several years working in the educational sector, I realised how challenging it could be to keep informed of what was, and is, going on. Along with all of the usual curriculum changes, the ICT revolution is now an integral component of education at all levels. Having worked in School, College and University education since 1985 and been involved with elearning development in various ways from 2001 to 2012, I decided to create a central area for information and links to as many informative websites that I could find to help those looking for information and resources for their teaching and learning.

Of course, I may not have found all of the useful websites and information available so if you know of some that should be included here, please contact me with information via the contact button lower down this page. Current events...

"We don't teach kids to understand how their beliefs shape the world. Kids create these beliefs that cascade and build up on each other and without knowing it, it leads to so many of the ills that all of us have as adults - I'm not worthy, I'm not enough, I'm not important, I can't do it. These are the four biggest diseases in human society." - Vishen Lakhiani (Founder of Mind Valley)
