E learning

  1. 1. •Learning Methodologies • Distance Learning • E-Learning • Blended Learning •Flexible Learning Principles/Requirements •SEAMEO INNOTECH’s e-Solutions Discussion Outline
  2. 2. Distance Learning ... is an umbrella term encompassing all learning that takes place at locations remote from the point of instruction. ... may take the form of an instructor-led course delivered via satellite to multiple remote locations. ...may also refer to training applications delivered via computer networks to participants or students at any network node.
  3. 3. e-Learning … is also an umbrella term that covers all learning that takes place using electronic means ... facilitates and enhances both formal and informal learning and knowledge sharing at any time, at any place, and at any pace and is considered to be a current and important form of distance learning.
  4. 4. eLearning: Stages of Evolution Universities must plan and manage these stages MISSION CRITICAL EXPLORATORY SUPPORTED STRATEGIC TRANSFORMATIVE Phase I Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5 - eLearning system is unsupported experiment - 20%+ of Profs post material/instructions - Students able to read lecture notes online for some courses - eLearning supported but not in wide usage - 100% WiFi - 50%+ courses delivered w/ online content - Student starts to work in virtual teams - 80%+ courses delivered with online content - Prof‘s hold webinars and hold e-polls to to monitor and grade students - Wide use of online assignmnets and exams - 100% courses delivered online - Prof conducts online tests, tracks students progress and adapts teaching methods - Student knows how they are competing among peers, totally reliant on VLE for success Source: Blackboard + Intel

  6. 6. Blended Learning …combines the face-to-face mode with e-Learning. Refers to the optimal mix of different delivery technology or modes. ...the basic feature of a blend is that a number of ingredients are mixed together to give the desired result.
  7. 7. 1. F2F-based (or ICT-enhanced class or conference) delivery modality, in which most participants and resource persons remain at one place for most of the time; Blended Learning
  8. 8. 2. VC-based delivery modality, in which participants and resource persons gather at one of the connected sites for most of the sessions; Blended Learning
  9. 9. 3. e-Learning based delivery modality, in which participants learn in their workplace or home most of the time, but will gather at a VC site once or several times to interact Blended Learning

  11. 11. Flexible Learning • is an approach rather than a system or technique; • it is based on the needs of individual learners, not the interests of the teacher or the institution; • it gives students as much control as possible over what and when and where and how they learn;
  12. 12. Flexible Learning • it commonly uses the delivery methods of distance education and facilities of educational technology; • it changes the role of the teacher from a source of knowledge to a manager of learning and a facilitator. (Johnson)
  13. 13. ...is both a process which focuses on access to educational opportunities and a philosophy which makes learning more client and student-centered. It is learning which allows the learner to choose how to learn, when to learn, where to learn, and what to learn (Paine, 1989)
  14. 14. • e-Learning is naturally suited to distance learning and flexible learning, but can also be used in conjunction with face- to-face teaching
  15. 15. • Flexible learning approaches are often designed using a full range of teaching and learning theories, philosophies and methods • Aims to provide students with opportunities to access information and expertise, contribute ideas and opinions, and correspond with other learners and mentors.
  16. 16. …majority of flexible learning programs to date have taken advantage of computer- based systems or mobile devices, e.g. - mobile phones, iPods, and tablet PCs to increase the mobility of learners and correspondingly enhance the flexibility of their learning.
  17. 17.  Increasing Access  Learner Centeredness  Problem & Experiential Based Learning  Competency Based  Modular Approach to Training design  Adult Learning Principles  Recognition of Prior Learning  Degree/Continuum of Openness Flexible Learning: Principles
  18. 18. Synchronous refers to the fact that the teaching and learning activity is happening at the same time. E.g. Videoconferencing, Internet chat and online instant message
  19. 19. Asynchronous - interaction is not live or in real time. A message is sent out at one time, a response is given later. E.g. Postal mail, email and online discussion forums

  21. 21. Learning Management System (LMS) • software for delivering, tracking and managing training • ranges from simple systems for managing training records to software for distributing courses over the Internet and offering features for online collaboration
