Dimensions, Components, And Characteristics Of Project Management-Based Online Learning Design (Pmbold)

The project management based approach brings a unique focus shaped by the goals, resources and schedule of each online learning design project. The value of that focus helps distance workers to establish a flexible, accessible, knowable and egalitarian of online learning design through a project management understanding. PMBOLD, therefore, can strongly focus on how to provide digital citizens with diverse online cultural backgrounds, and also to deal with poor sharing e-resources and inadequate e-facilities as well as underpaid e-labors. This transformation of power sharing can extend beyond any proper justification to the digital citizens themselves. Not only do digital citizens and distance workers become active promoters of the well-being of their online societies, but also they collaborate with those people who improve their skills, knowledge and experiences. In this context, PMBOLD refers to ideas of social justice and liberal distance education applied to a complete online society based on not only giving digital individuals and groups’ fair action, but also sharing the benefits of free online society.
