E-Learning - An Overview

R. Rajesh, Dr. S. Leo Stanly

Learning is the process of acquiring new or modifying existing knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, or preferences. A person can be physically present in the classroom, but mentally absent, and no one would know. But in an online environment, especially during live discussions, each participant has to be mentally present to progress towards the learning goal of the discussion. E-learning is a form of instruction that uses electronic means, primarily e-mail and the internet. This format precludes direct teacher-to-student interaction as is normally found in the classroom. Learning is completely self motivated. Student must manage their time and complete tasks on their own within the given time frame. Some students are not capable and do not have the required self discipline to learn via the internet. Their learning styles may differ and they may not be able to comprehend information without further explanation from a teacher. The role of teachers in online learning is that of facilitators. They are not there to teach the students, but to simply to act as facilitators. A shift from a curriculum-centered to a learner-centered environment makes eLearning a winning proposition. This paper discusses about e-learning and its contribution towards educational field.
