The concept of Distance Education has greatlyevolved in the digital era of 21st Century. With the widespread use and access to the Internet, exponentialgrowth has been experienced in the field of multimedia and web technologiesAs a result of new communication and collaboration tools, and possibilities to disseminate high qualityaudio, video and interactive materials over the information superhighway, the educational design process ofdistance education materials has new perspectives to explore in order to improve and even re-engineer theoverall ‘distance’ teaching and learning concept.The e-learning web platform combines the efficacy of Learning Content Management and coreinternal process management into a robust single portal to address the challenges of the school,students, lecturers and administrators. It provides a cost effective and efficient managed time andresources for learning and research. Delivered and viewed in a variety of multiple access modes:over the internet, mobile app, tin client, digital vision, webinar and lecture theaters.The figure below illustrates how the teacher-student-content model has been materialized in three differenteducational frameworks. 1
  2. 2. The figure above, although not necessarily exhaustive, clearly demonstrates how technology has changedthe modalities and this affects mainly the nature of the interaction between the teacher, student and contentas well as how the interactions and communications are mediated. Furthermore, the technology has alsochanged the ways that content can be authored and presented to the learner and thus offering a wider choiceof pedagogical design approaches.Integrated e-learning portal deployment ‘overview’With extensive collaboration and cooperation Hisplus intend to model a real-world education byintegrating a set of virtual concepts and other external resources into a unified powerfulcommunication product to enhance students learning experience. Hisplus e-learning platform willmake learning more interactive and resourceful. Already our e-learning portal is a buffer to theblended learning via enriched multimedia and animated web pages.AimHisplus therefore offer to develop, implement, deploy and maintain e-learning portal for OSUNwhere the school administrators, teachers and students with have a seamless eLearning educationalexperience by having access to online space and e-portfolio in the virtual learning environment.These will un-doubtfully reposition Nigerian education and OSUN outreach study programme atlarge in today’s world and among the committee of educational societies. 2
  3. 3. Objectives• To develop e-learning technology platform• To develop, deploy and manage OSUN e-learning portal with preference to: o E-learning website development, deployment and maintenance o Site promotion and propagation o Digital marketing development• To facilitate network integrations and technical supports• To examine and review the present digital managed learning environment and core internal process in OSUN• To analyse the current network architecture and infrastructural deportment• To develop an eLearning framework that will allow low-technology skilled students and teachers the ability to participate without possessing extensive technology experience.• To design a simplified eLearning structured content• To provide technical support for the structure, instructors, students and others users• To provide e-learning portal in a computing architecture and information infrastructure management as a service.• To support and enhance quality management in e-learning• To develop an e-learning solution that is based on Web/Virtual Asynchronous Classroom andthe Web/Computer-Based Training (CBT) delivery method.Potentialities of our solution• The proposed e-learning portal will be a cutting-edge solution that combines comprehensivecontent learning management functionality with business process management tools tooptimized learning and productivity in today’s fast-paced educational environment withouttasking resources.• Offering classes for students, entrepreneurs and existing business owners will help to buildthe economy of the Lagos state thereby benefiting the community and surrounding areas.• Implementing e-learning classes for students with jobs allows them to learn on the jobthereby enhancing their learning skill without putting much strain on their jobs.• Flexibility and convenience are the primary selling points for this type of program.• Students will learn and show proper use of technology and technology resources.• Students will learn and show competency in the computer application their variousdisciplines.• By providing this web-based platform for learners, OSUN can reach a broader market ofstudents and workers who would fall into the “nontraditional” category.• The e-learning environments allow the students to demonstrate their knowledge and abilityto set “SMART” personal and financial goals.• The “SMART” stands for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-framed goals.• The delivery method based on Web/Virtual Asynchronous Classroom (W/VAC) will bring abroader student base reaching students from across Nigeria as well as around West Africa region.• The W/VAC provides the flexibility to work studies during convenient times for the students.Again, looking to the community, the school can cater to the students who may already beworking full-time jobs• This online learning environment allows anyone to go back to school regardless of his or herown individual commitments.• The eLearning transcends the boundaries of location, time, and space providing a flexiblelearning environment for all individuals involved. 3
  4. 4. • The school will benefit from this learning environment because it provides an excellent wayfor experts to teach a geographically dispersed group of students without the restrictions of aphysical classroom• Communication from the instructor to the students, and the student to the instructors, ismaintained via forums within the web-based classroom programs.• Web-based classrooms can be accessed at any time of the day, and at each personal computerthat has Internet access.• The learning environment of W/VAC and W/CBT is asynchronous. Asynchronous learning orinstruction does not occur in real-time. Instructors and students do not attend online at the samelocation or time. The course material is delivered by the instructor at one time and the responsesor assignments are completed by the students at a different time within a specified time frame.• Asynchronous learning allows the student to study at his or her own location and time.• Additionally, both the teacher and the student benefit because the entire discussion is postedin forums and can be referred to continuously.eLearning Development System • Requirements o The technology to use in building the e-learning framework are various web tools Html Php MySQL PostgreSQL Python Ajax Javascripts Xhtml Web 2.0 Flash Actionscript Video authoring tools o Content provision ( after the development) Course materials Discussion questions Courseware Additional content to support the instruction. o Internet Backbone SATCOM1 Swift Network Spectranet Starcomm Satellite o Elearning centre 4

Instructors and support staff may not have the skills required to assist with hardware and software issues, and technical support staff is essential for troubleshooting issues students have once the course has begun.. • Creating and implementing an online course cannot be done in departmental solitude. The entire institutional student support system is affected by the addition of the course strand. The student support systems need to be involved in the process to eliminate any technical or staffing issues that may arise. • Support systems are necessary for students’ success and achievement in an online environment because of multiple irregular and unexpected technical and non-related issues that crop up.Payment and terms of conditions: 70% advanced payment, 30% on completionSecurity • The e-learning portal poise to be a pioneer web based educationally management assets adaptable, reliable and accessible in a secured mode by using secured server management. • Superior database administrator: This is tailored to an interactive platform for multiple users at deferent privileged login levels. • Storage management: A bird rock of critical data storage foundation with a remote backup in real time.Corporate profileHISPLUS Systems Limited is an indigenous IT company.
