E-Learning and Digital Media
This article provides an account of how one manager considered the alignment of an organisational vision with an implementation strategy for creating an effective organisational infrastructure. The discussion reported in the article provides a manager's view, a case, of how one institution introduced online learning initiatives. Critical to this case is the development of suitable and sustainable organisational processes that were in alignment with the organisational vision. This discussion could aid managers of virtual learning environments in higher education institutions by (a) modelling an approach to linking institutional vision and Laurillard's Conversational Framework as an implementation strategy for e-learning and, (b) improving managers' understanding of the processes of and necessity of strategic alignment.
