<ul><li> Books and journals have found their way to the desktops of students and research scholars.
Thanks to the invention of electronic resources, easy, quick and anytime access to books and journals have made an effective learning.
E-resources serve as a platform for random access to multiple users at the same time and save plenty of time.</li></li></ul><li> E-learning<br /><ul><li>E-learning has developed very fast due to internet.
The internet and the world wide web has provided us with easy access to information and knowledge.
E-learning is a technology which supports teaching and learning using a computer web technology.
It bridges the gap between a teacher and a student in different ways.
The computer-based Instruction has progressed from usage of CD-ROM to the internet then to the web-based instruction(WWW.)</li></li></ul><li>E-learning<br /><ul><li>In an on-line multimedia learning environment:
teaching & learning is ‘one-to-one’ (individual)
more interactivity (in normal classroom, it varies with the class size)
Learner monitoring & grading system</li></li></ul><li>LEARNER CENTERED<br /><ul><li>In a true learner-centered environment, the learner is the beginning and end point of the learning process, and the learner’s needs are the focus of the program.
The quality of instruction is measured against standards
The student is an active partner in the learning process
The course is continually renewed through feedback from learners</li></li></ul><li>LEARNER MONITORING:<br />Learners learn to assess their own progress.<br />Helping learners to identify the progress they have made, to understand what they have achieved and what they need to do next, to make progress towards their goals and qualifications.<br />GRADING SYSTEM:<br />In a grading system learners are placed in ability bands that represents a range of scores.<br />It reflects on individual learners performance in the form of certain level of achievement in relation to the whole group of learners.<br />
E-learning, Web-based learning<br /><ul><li>E-learning is mostly associated with activities involving computers and interactive networks simultaneously. The computer does not need to be the central element of the activity or provide learning content. However, the computer and the network must hold a significant involvement in the learning activity.
Web-based learning is associated with learning materials delivered in a Web browser, including when the materials are packaged on CD-ROM or other media. disk.</li></li></ul><li>Online learning<br /><ul><li>Online learning:is associated with content readily accessible on a computer. The content may be on the Web or the Internet, or simply installed on a CD-ROM or the computer hard disk.</li></li></ul><li> What is E-learning?<br /><ul><li>The letter `e’ in e-learning stands for the word `electronic’.
E-learning pioneer BERNARD LUSKIN(2001) explains `e’ as exciting, energetic, enthusiastic, emotional, extended and educational.
