e-Learning refers to an open and flexible learning mode involving the use of the electronic media, including digital resources and online communication tools, to achieve learning objectives. The essence of e-learning is to enhance learning and teaching effectiveness in schools and help develop students’ qualities (e.g. self-directed learning) well-fitted for the 21st century. At the same time, it is to help our students to use information and information technology ethically, flexibly, and effectively via e-learning. This may assist students to develop information literacy.
Teachers may develop a repertoire whereby e-learning may help enhance, modify and complement some existing learning and teaching strategies or break new ground in pedagogy. PE centres around physical activities, focuses on learning motor and sports skills, and is keen to develop physical fitness. Teachers are encourage to bring in topics relevant to "health and fitness", "sports-related values and attitudes", "knowledge and practice of safety", "knowledge of movement" and "aesthetic sensitivity" when appropriate. Teachers can make use of technology to facilitate e-learning in PE lesson. For example, having difficulties in mastering the skills, students can obtain knowledge of performance through watching the relevant video clips of their own performances. This would help enhance teaching effectiveness. Besides, teachers may upload the video clips of students’ practices in lessons and the learning points to the intranet, for students to draw reflections through self and peer-assessment. This could help them learn the skills more effectively.
