What is E-learning

  1. 1. What is eLearning? Dispelling popular misconceptions
  2. 2. / 24/ 24 Is this eLearning? PPT Presentations + Audio Published using Articulate OR Adobe Connect Uploaded to LMS 2
  3. 3. / 24/ 24 Is this eLearning? Recorded live sessions Uploaded to LMS or Intranet for learner access 3
  4. 4. / 24/ 24 Some views about level 0 and level 1 eLearning 4 There is so much information to remember. The textual content is intimidating! How can we remember so much? It is difficult to keep up our concentration levels throughout the course. I wish I could do more than just "Click Next.”
  5. 5. / 24/ 24 Some views about level 0 and level 1 eLearning? 5 I have to complete the course in one sitting. I wish I could complete the course at my own pace! The presentations have too much text with only audio. I wish data and information are represented visually through images or animations!
  6. 6. / 24/ 24 What do learners ask for?  Easy and understandable content  Interactive participation  Control over course navigation  Graphics, animations and visuals 6
  7. 7. / 24/ 24 What are they getting?  Heavy textual content  Too much audio narration  No interactivities  Course with time restrictions  No rich visual experience 7
  8. 8. / 24/ 24 Why this disconnect? 8 PPTs cannot function as stand-alone learning material. They contain only a fraction of the knowledge shared by SMEs during classroom interactions. Learning experts with inputs from SMEs can create instructionally sound eLearning courses.
  9. 9. / 24/ 24 Who are learning experts? Visual Designers 9 Instructional Designers Course Developers
  10. 10. / 24/ 24 Role of Learning Experts in eLearning Learning experts create eLearning courses keeping in mind:  How adults learn  The learning process they follow  Their different learning styles  Content types 10
  11. 11. / 24/ 24 How do adults learn? 11 Autonomous and self-directed Guided by extrinsic and intrinsic motivation Motivated by a clear need for learning Bring knowledge and experience to learning activity Need more control and flexibility in training Need to understand how the learning benefits them Prefer activities that required application of the knowledge gained must be filtered Information and tailored specifically to cater to the learner’s need You need to keep these facts in mind when developing eLearning courses
  12. 12. / 24/ 24 Adult Learning Process 12 You need to understand the LEARNING PROCESS to create eLearning courses that improve performance of learners
  13. 13. / 24/ 24 Learning Styles or Preferences Adults have different learning styles. 13 Visual Learning Learn through seeing Auditory Learning Learn through listening Kinesthetic learning Learn through, moving, doing and touching Courses have to be balanced to have ideal Visual, Audio and Interactive elements
  14. 14. / 24/ 24 Content Types 14 Content Facts Concepts ProcessesProcedures Principles
  15. 15. / 24/ 24 Content Types - Facts Facts: A fact is a unique, one-of-a-kind type of information. The recommended ways of displaying factual information are: 15
  16. 16. / 24/ 24 Content Types - Concepts Concepts: These are mental representations or prototypes of objects or ideas. Definitions, examples, non-examples and analogies are the best ways of teaching concepts. 16
  17. 17. / 24/ 24 Content Types - Processes Processes: Processes may be defined as descriptions of how things work. Process tables and flow diagrams help us understand processes. 17
  18. 18. / 24/ 24 Content Types - Procedure Procedure: This describes how (the steps involved) the activities of a process are to be performed. Demonstrations in the form of simulations or animations are ideal methods of teaching procedures. 18
  19. 19. / 24/ 24 Content Types - Principle Principle: This is a cause and effect relationship that results in a predictable outcome. Principles are best explained with the help of representational visuals or animations. 19 Principles of Interviewing
  20. 20. / 24/ 24 Ideal eLearning Solution: Level 2 20 Courses need to be designed keeping in mind adult learning principles, the learning process and different learning styles of learners.
  21. 21. / 24/ 24 Ideal eLearning Solution: Level 2 21 Some examples of level 2 eLearning courses
  22. 22. / 24/ 24 Some Examples of Level 2 eLearning Courses Course content In the course content, relevant icons were used for easy understanding 22 Screenshot from the course showing the usage of icons
  23. 23. / 24/ 24 Some Examples of Level 2 eLearning Courses Course content In the course, the software was demonstrated using simulations 23 Screenshot from the course showing simulation
  24. 24. / 24/ 24 Summary The objective of eLearning is to HELP the audience learn. It is NOT just a means of communication SME expertise + Learning expertise = eLearning Level 2 eLearning provides effective learning and better ROI 24
