  5. 5. NIIT LEARNER CENTERED  In a true learner-centered environment, the learner is      the beginning and end point of the learning process, and the learner’s needs are the focus of the program. Tools are available as the learners needs. The instructor adjusts to the student The quality of instruction is measured against standards The student is an active partner in the learning process The course is continually renewed through feedback from learners
  6. 6. E-learning  E-learning has developed very fast due to internet.  The internet and the world wide web has provided us with easy access to information and knowledge.  E-learning is a technology which supports teaching and learning using a computer web technology.  It bridges the gap between a teacher and a student in different ways.  The computer-based Instruction has progressed from usage of CD-ROM to the internet then to the webbased instruction(WWW.)
  7. 7. E-learning • In an on-line multimedia learning environment: – teaching & learning is ‘one-to-one’ (individual) – more interactivity (in normal classroom, it varies with the class size) – learner-centred – Learner monitoring & grading system
  8. 8. LEARNER MONITORING:  Learners learn to assess their own progress.  Helping learners to identify the progress they have made, to understand what they have achieved and what they need to do next, to make progress towards their goals and qualifications. GRADING SYSTEM:  In a grading system learners are placed in ability bands that represents a range of scores.  It reflects on individual learners performance in the form of certain level of achievement in relation to the whole group of learners.
  9. 9. E-learning, Web-based learning  E-learning is mostly associated with activities involving computers and interactive networks simultaneously. The computer does not need to be the central element of the activity or provide learning content. However, the computer and the network must hold a significant involvement in the learning activity.  Web-based learning is associated with learning materials delivered in a Web browser, including when the materials are packaged on CD-ROM or other media. disk.
  10. 10. Online learning  Online learning :is associated with content readily accessible on a computer. The content may be on the Web or the Internet, or simply installed on a CD-ROM or the computer hard disk.
  11. 11. What is E-learning?  The letter `e’ in e-learning stands for the word `electronic’.  E-learning pioneer BERNARD LUSKIN(2001) explains `e’ as exciting, energetic, enthusiastic, emotional, extended and educational.  E-learning is internet-enabled learning.  It is a store house of education, information, communication, training, knowledge and performance management.
  12. 12. Benefits • Convenient – self-service (mix and match) – on-demand (anytime, anywhere) – private learning – self-paced – Flexibility: (modular package) MULTIMEDIA UNIVERSITY
  13. 13. Benefits • media-rich – Easier to understand & more engaging • repeatable – As many times as you like • easier to monitor progress – less administrative work – can be more precise MULTIMEDIA UNIVERSITY
  14. 14. Benefits • Consistent – Central control of content – Same quality of content for all – Same quality of education for all MULTIMEDIA UNIVERSITY
  15. 15. Delivery methods of e-learning at NIIT  Synchronous learning  Asynchronous learning  Instructor-led group  Self-study with subject expert  Web-based: blog-Wikis-forums  Computer-based (CD-ROM)  Video/audio streaming
  16. 16. Synchronous learning  Within synchronous learning; learning and teaching takes place in real time (same time) while the trainer and learners are physically separated from each other (place shift).  Examples include:  listening to a live radio broadcast  watching live a television broadcast  audio/video conferencing  Internet telephony  online lectures  two-way live satellite broadcast
  17. 17. Asynchronous learning  Characteristic for asynchronous learning is the fact that that the trainer prepares the courseware material before the course takes place. The learner is free to decide when he wants to study the courseware  Examples include:  self paced courses taken via Internet or CD-Rom  videotaped classes  stored audio/video Web presentations or seminars  recorded audio tapes  Q & A mentoring  reading e-mail messages

  20. 20. Truth of e-learning  Internet has started reshaping education.  Education will not be the same in the next decade There is no going back. The traditional classroom has to be transformed Web-based Education Commission, US Many formal universities/colleges may not Have much attraction by the end of this decade
  21. 21. Teacher’s Obligation use all available technology incorporate ‘old’ & ‘new’ Teacher’s Obligation Lay foundation for Lifelong learning Encourage collaborative learning
  22. 22. Building an e-learning culture      Learner: Self-directed Self-motivated Self-regulating Lifelong learning Building an E-learning Culture Teacher: Develop knowledge & skills Understand learning and its need Facilitate learning Create learning opportunities Administrator: Create Learning environment Provide ICT infrastructure Resources for lifelong learning
  23. 23. Traditional & E-learning Approach Traditional and E-learning approaches Traditional Classroom E-Learning Classroom • Physical – limited size • Synchronous • Unlimited • Anytime, anywhere Content • PowerPoint/transparency/etc • Textbooks/library • Video • Collaboration • Multimedia / simulation • Digital library • On demand • Syn & Asyn. Communication Personalisation • One learning path • Learning path and pace determined by learner
  24. 24. Instructor led training  It refers to the traditional classroom training where a teacher teaches a classroom full of students.  The problems of this training are 1. Distance: Bringing together the students under one roof for requires time and money. 2. Audience size and response time: Same planning is required for smaller and larger group of students in planning, infrastructure and instructors. 3. Off the job time: working people face difficulty in finding a replacement for their jobs.
  25. 25. Concept of e-learning In our rapid changing world, we find it difficult to overcome the learning challenges and the possible achievements. To bridge this gap, the concepts such as e-learning, e-teaching, eteachers has become the part of effective education.
  26. 26. E-teaching  E-teaching is the appreciation of live teaching with streaming lectures, whiteboards, downloadable slide sets and discussion forum.  E-teaching is an automation of an existing teachercentered educational approach  The real work is in creating content and learning management systems that support e-learning.
  27. 27. E-teachers  E-teachers are teachers who work in an internet environment in both regular and virtual classroom situations.  They build new concepts of working in time and space.  They find new learning resources as they interact with information, materials and ideas with their students and colleagues.
  28. 28. Impact of e-learning on teaching learning process  Computer based networking system has provided the present day teacher with a choice of modern tools to deliver the goods in the classroom and end the instructional boundaries.  Information and communication technology in which e-learning, e-teaching, e-teachers are built in components has some impacts on teaching learning process

Disadvantages of e-learning  Unmotivated learners or those with poor study habits may       fall behind Lack of familiar structure and routine may take getting used to Students may feel isolated or miss social interaction Instructor may not always be available on demand Slow or unreliable Internet connections can be frustrating Managing learning software can involve a learning curve Some courses such as traditional hands-on courses can be difficult to simulate
  40. 40. E-learning: Blended mode Chalk-and-board has long ruled the classrooms • • will not be eliminated Less emphasis Interactive Digital Content: • more emphasis • on demand learning • interactive
  41. 41. Blended learning  Blended learning combines e-learning tools with traditional classroom learning to ensure maximum effectiveness.  It offers 1.Face to face interaction thereby leading to social benefits. 2. Personalized system of instruction which requires minimum interaction. 3. Improved retention and reinforcement through followup mechanism on the web. 4. Highly flexible based on the learning style and the level of audience.
  42. 42. Resume  E-Learning      It is not a cup of web pages! It is a complex learning environment! We need a possibility professionally to create our learning materials. We need a professional LMS system, which is compliment with all e-learning relevant standards. We need money and peoples! And lot of optimism 
