    The pedagogical design of learning events is discussed. Learning events are offered mostly in chunks, like courses. These chunks (in the next paragraph we abstract them to the concept of ‘units of learning’) are the major delivery units for eLearning. From a design perspective, the course is the aggregate containing all the necessary features to make learning successful. It is at this level that educational modelling (or "learning design") takes place; it is at this level that the pedagogical models are implemented; it is this level of aggregation that is accountable for the quality of learning.
