Online learning in the COBISS.SI community
As part of its mission in the Slovenian librarianship sphere, IZUM puts great emphasis on education and training. Today’s way of life is very information- and technology-oriented, and e-learning with its online access to contents can additionally improve information literacy and also the quality of lifelong learning as a basic human right. Both IZUM and libraries provide their users with access to various information services. For the use of these services, IZUM has been offering free online courses for librarians, lecturers, researchers, students, high-school students, library users and employees of various institutions as part of its regular training programme. The paper discusses online learning at IZUM, the structure and content of online courses, the tools used for online learning and the advantages of this way of learning, and also presents an analysis of online courses held from the introduction of online learning at IZUM in 2005 to the end of 2015.
