In Australia, a world leader in e-learning, teachers are becoming increasingly accountable for their ability to e-teach. However, too few teacher education programs model including pedagogy on teaching with technology. This study examined the effectiveness of an online e-learning synchronous platform, in training pre-service teachers in part of an education course. The study took a blended learning approach, including both face-to-face and online lectures via an e-learning live-time platform. Approximately 20 students participated in the course. Students were assessed via a simulation assessment presentation, questionnaires and interviews, and data were analysed via content analysis. The study found that e-learning is effective for training pre-service teachers to teach inclusively with technology; enhancing subject matter and ICT competency; and providing pre-service teachers with insight into student experience. The study showed that the online e-learning synchronous platform is easy to use, promotes learning and understanding, and increases pre-service teacher confidence.
