DEAR STUDENTSWelcome to the II nd part ofe-learning.Here we are going to viewmaterials about some of thedelivery methods ofe-learning, Instructor led trainingand about the Concept of e-learning.
E-learning is a means of education that incorporates self-motivation,communication, efficiency, and technology.Distance between the student and the instructor iseliminated. E-learning is efficient as it eliminates distances by properly equipped computer terminals, and othermeans of Internet accessible technology
E-learning is a flexible term used todescribe a means of teaching throughtechnology.The different types of e-learning arebased on:•Means of communication(throughonline, face to face, blended learning)•Schedule(synchronous &Asynchronous)•E-learning class structure(self-paced,instructor-led, or self-study with anexpert)•Technologies used
Synchronous learning Within synchronous learning; learning and teaching takes place in real time (same time) while the trainer and learners are physically separated from each other (place shift). Examples include: listening to a live radio broadcast watching live a television broadcast audio/video conferencing Internet telephony online lectures two-way live satellite broadcast
Asynchronous learning Characteristic for asynchronous learning is the fact that that the trainer prepares the courseware material before the course takes place. The learner is free to decide when he wants to study the courseware Examples include: self paced courses taken via Internet or CD-Rom videotaped classes stored audio/video Web presentations or seminars recorded audio tapes Q & A mentoring reading e-mail messages

Truth of e-learning Internet has started reshaping education. Education will not be the same in the next decadeThere is no going back. The traditional classroomhas to be transformed Web-based Education Commission, US Many formal universities/colleges may not Have much attraction by the end of this decade

Traditional & E-learning Approach Traditional and E-learning approaches Traditional Classroom E-LearningClassroom • Physical – limited size • Unlimited • Synchronous • Anytime, anywhereContent • PowerPoint/transparency/etc • Multimedia / simulation • Textbooks/library • Digital library • Video • On demand • Collaboration • Syn & Asyn. CommunicationPersonalisation • One learning path • Learning path and pace determined by learner
Instructor led training It refers to the traditional classroom training where a teacher teaches a classroom full of students. The problems of this training are 1. Distance: Bringing together the students under one roof for requires time and money. 2. Audience size and response time: Same planning is required for smaller and larger group of students in planning, infrastructure and instructors. 3. Off the job time: working people face difficulty in finding a replacement for their jobs.
