T o learn at your schedule, your pace, your place can be facilitated by e-learning. It will help a student in covering the material whenever he/she is having time; go over it as often as they need and this all can be done without being seated in the classroom. There have been many studies showing that e-Learning students retain the material to a significantly greater degree than face-to-face instructor led classes. The content delivery is consistent and can be easily repeated if needed to get a better understanding.
We are immigrants to the digital age, but have learnt and re-learnt to take the best of technology available to make it interesting for students. Microsoft tools and apps, as well as the ever-evolving technology aids like smart boards, PPTs, STEM education, all facilitate the teaching learning process, the principal of Christ church school, Mumbai said on adapting e-learning in his school.
According to Sameer Ahmad, CEO, Learon Technology, “E-learning has the power to help students achieve their true potential by personalising or differentiating the way lessons are taught to each student. Teachers can more effectively use their time in the classroom and become facilitators encouraging discussions and peer to peer learning.”
