Foss E-Learning Star - VP Oliva

  1. 1. by Prof. V. P. Oliva
  2. 2. A comprehensive software package that supports quot;courses that depend on the WWW for some combination of delivery, testing, simulation, discussion, or other significant aspectquot; (Robby Robson, 2001). Previous technologies:  Unlike CAL(Computer Assisted Leaning) packages they are not tied to a particular subject  Unlike a straightforward set of web pages they incorporate links to more powerful technologies (usually databases)
  3. 3. Bruce Landon lists more than 112 such systems on his Web Tool for Comparative Analysis of Online Educ site. According to Robson, institutions decide according to quot;perceptions about ease of use, appearance of the interface, recommendations from peers, marketing strategies and position in the marketquot; and NOT according to pedagogic distinctions.
  4. 4.  quot;Increased competition, decreased funding and a shift in global trends in education have made the risk of not moving in this directionquot;,  Karen Lazenby, 1998. E-learning systems are seen as the solution to their current problems . . .  Most writers would agree with Lazenby above to the extent that these recent trends have posed considerable problems for universities,    Goodyear, 1998
  5. 5.  While giving educational reasons for their implementation also imply that the initial decision was taken in response to a need to attract more students. Betty Collis  This is a pattern currently being followed at most schools which seek to extend the market for courses .
  6. 6.  living outside the region or even the country  living locally but who have difficulty attending  wanting to take vocational courses in their workplace quot;The online model of education is not yet in wide use or fully accepted, however predictions of its spread and eventual dominance of the educational market place occur regularly in magazines and the pressquot;, Allan Ellis 
  7. 7.  Not so much easy but it can be learned and nowadays eLMS becomes more friendly.  The students can access the site from home or work.  The eLMS can be improved “Technology is only a tool and is only as effective as the ideas and applications of those who deal with the technological challenges“, Mercedes Fisher
  8. 8. quot; the whole idea of how one prepares for a course is likely to changequot;, Collis quot;. . . successful learning is not driven by content, but by context and activityquot; Oliver & McLoughlin  Don't just upload your lecture notes and presentations online  The challenge is improve students learning experience and not to produce boring “slide show”
  9. 9.  Active and Collaborative learning  Independent and Student-centered  Problem-based  Critical  Reflective  Appreciation of multiple perspectives
  10. 10.  Needs assessment -- Different companies have different training needs  E-learning is a means of extending the training capabilities of the company, not duplicating them Companies may use e-learning for:  Training & Competency  Ongoing Staff Development / Enrichment  Knowledge Base  Knowledge Transfer  Solutions Forum
  11. 11.  Case Study 1: Reducing the costs of live training  Case Study 2: Providing training under different brand names  Case Study 3: Analyzing training program success
  12. 12.  Management not only of courses, but of supporting quot;non-coursequot; content  Integration of online self-study, live classroom meetings and virtual training methods  quot;Agentquot; technologies that can present dynamically generated, customized training content  Full support within any course for discussions  Sophisticated tracking & analysis tools  quot;Classroomquot; paradigms  Support for IMS/AICC/SCORM standards  Modular architecture
  13. 13.  The IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc. (IMS standards), is working with Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC standards), Advanced Distributed Learning (SCORM standards) and other standards committees to develop one set of standards which will serve today's e-learning vendors. The ADL has stated that SCORM will adopt the IMS standards for interoperability as they become finalized. More information is available at: IMS: SCORM: AICC:
  14. 14.  Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) -- a software package for producing internet-based courses and web sites. It's an ongoing development project designed to support a social constructionist framework of education.  Moodle is provided freely as Open Source software (under the GNU Public License).
