POTENTIALITY OF E-RESOURCES IN E-LEARNING by Dr. R N Mishra 07/12/12  Visual Literacy Visual literacy is a prerequisite for operating in digital learning environment as they combine a number of metaphors (literary figure of speech). Metaphor is fundamental in creating an online learning environment. It is a map for sorting out what is similar and what is different when confronting a new problem. Likewise, the degree to which ICT can effectively control or aid virtual communities which is surrounded by the finite capacity of human cognition. GUI in digital environment swears upon the visual metaphors. Visual metaphors, therefore, serve the learners a platform to put new concepts along with the grasped ideas into a new cognitive synthesis.  Co-operative Literacy Co-operative signifies to a learning situation where interaction is qualified with constructive objective of the learner coupled with interdependence with individual accountability.

    9. 9. POTENTIALITY OF E-RESOURCES IN E-LEARNING by Dr. R N Mishra 07/12/12  Academic Literacy  Intersegment Committee of the Academic Senates of the California Community Colleges, the California State University, and the University of California viewed that, the dispositions and habits of mind that enable students to enter the ongoing conversations appropriate to college thinking, reading, writing, and speaking are inter-related and multi-tiered.  Awareness of various logical, emotional, and personal appeals used in argument lead them to cultivate new academic skills which are prominent for academic perspectives.  Generates skills for enabling them to define, summarize, detail, explain, evaluate, compare/contrast, and analyze are also equally important. Inter- based learning is considered to be most useful and prominent for collaborative, self-directed and resource-based approaches with computer- literate students. Consciousness for on-line evaluation procedures, criteria, prioritisation of work, sticking to deadlines and development of self- motivation skills are indispensable for the learners both in-house and external.
