Creative Play – Learning in Context (1973)

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. Non-commercial contributions are always welcome, so please make suggestions or comments via the contact page. Relevant advertising is possible – see terms here.

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.
