WHAT IS E-LEARNING
Understanding e Learning is simple. e Learning is learning utilizing electronic technologies to access educational curriculum outside of a traditional classroom. In most cases, it refers to a course, program or degree delivered completely online.
So with the internet, almost any amount of knowledge is available in fact it is possible to put all the knowledge stored in books used in traditional classrooms online. This is already possible with eBooks and PDFs.
So the question is with the internet being a large database of knowledge available, why isn’t the internet taking of as the next big education platform?. Practically every type of education conducted traditional in a physical education can be replicated and emulated in an online platform,
- You tube
- PDF versions of physical text books
- online discussion and meeting tools
- audio book
These are just among the wealth of examples of sources of knowledge available today to teach on self in a way different from a traditional learning setting such as a physical classroom. I myself have downloaded books on android app development and dived right in to teaching myself how to code android apps with the help of the tools i listed above. So hows about you go online and learn a new skill tech yourself and change the world.
The biggest advantage of this online learning is that as the internet becomes available in even the most remote parts of the globe, then even the poorest and knowledge scarce individuals get access to new knowledge to teach themselves new skills gain access on business and markets all over the world, and enlarge the worlds talent pool with their newly learned skills.
