Motivators for engaging in e-learning

One of the things I am reflecting on this week is what motivates teachers to engage with e-learning.  Many of the people I’m starting to interact with via blogs and Twitter are already pretty engaged in e-learning, but what was it that got you motivated to get engaged.  Do you find it easy to get other colleagues engaged?  If you’ve got a a few seconds perhaps you could complete the short poll below.

P.S. Following on from Anne Marie’s comment I’m thinking specifically about what motivated you to start learning about and using e-learning in your teaching, ie developing interactive content, using virtual worlds or using Web 2.0 tools like blogs and wikis with your students.

Many thanks!
