Understanding eLearning is simple. eLearning 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.
There are many terms used to describe learning that is delivered online, via the internet, ranging from Distance Education, to computerized electronic learning, online learning, internet learning and many others. We define eLearning as courses that are specifically delivered via the internet to somewhere other than the classroom where the professor is teaching. It is not a course delivered via a DVD or CD-ROM, video tape or over a television channel.
It is interactive in that you can also communicate with your teachers, professors or other students in your class. Sometimes it is delivered live, where you can “electronically” raise your hand and interact in real time and sometimes it is a lecture that has been prerecorded. There is always a teacher or professor interacting /communicating with you and grading your participation, your assignments and your tests. eLearning has been proven to be a successful method of training and education is becoming a way of life for many citizens in Nigeria.
Is eLearning for Me?
eLearning is not for everyone. Because eLearning courses offer the flexibility to fit into a student’s available time schedule, an eLearning student must have the self discipline to work through the material on a consistent and regular basis in order to keep up with the rest of their classmates. Usually, a textbook is required just as it would be in a regular on-campus program. Although you may not be sitting in a classroom with other students, eLearning courses are often comprised of a group of students, called cohorts, who learn the material separately, but simultaneously and are expected to interact with one another about the material throughout the week via discussion boards, typically through an online classroom management system.
There are usually scheduled test due dates and assignments that must be submitted on time. It takes real self discipline, as well as time management and organizational skills. If you have that self discipline and organization, then eLearning will be a good choice for you.
