Over the past decade or so, learning practitioners and researchers alike have been directing much of their attention to understanding and accommodating the learning styles, attitudes, preferences, and other relevant needs of the millennial learner. A new, rapidly growing group of learners is now beginning to warrant similar attention. Learning, once viewed as a hallmark of the early formative years, is now generally viewed as a lifelong process. As the population ages, we can expect more and more individuals to become interested in pursuing an online learning experience of some form. However, we know very little about the relevant characteristics of elderly adult e-learners or about general instructional and multimedia design issues as they relate to elderly online learners. In this paper, attention is drawn to this emerging group of e-learners as well as to some of the issues to consider in providing accessible and effective learning opportunities for elderly adult e-learners.
