Learning online in practice!
Universities already embrace the power of e-learning
to deliver content to students all over the world, even for free. At a time in
which universities are under great pressure to deliver education, combining
technology with education is integral to coming up with a final product that
will empower the educational institution, set it apart, and allow it to grow
its student base worldwide. Harvard and MIT are just two of the most well-known
universities that have launched programs focused on offering classes online for
free. Harvard videotapes its lectures and puts them online, so even its own
student body can view and review them in case they missed a lecture or need to
review a section.
Coursera is a hub for universities that choose to
offer online classes through its platform for free. Already, companies and
corporations spanning the globe accept certificates of completion of classes
offered in Coursera as valid credits, as if they had been completed at the
university of origin. The material is essentially the same, the difference is
the medium. Harvard for example, takes the delivery of online courses very
seriously, delivering live classes which are recorded and delivered online.
Harvard has even launched a specially designed section within its campus,
employing videographers and specialists to design and create the perfect
content to be delivered through its online platform.
Best practices of online training
Online learning can offer a wide range of benefits.
However, the knowledge that a student is able to acquire this way depends not
only on the course material that is offered, but also the practices used to
provide them with this information. Here are just a few of the best practices
of online training which help to better facilitate the e-learning process:
A supportive community
Teachers and e-learning establishments should
encourage a strong sense of community amongst their online students. This will
enable students to interact with one another and the instructors, as well as
with the resources provided, making for an enhanced educational experience!
Students should be aware of what they will be
receiving from the virtual class instruction, and both parties should know the
preferred method of communication and delivery of the core curriculum. For
example, a teacher may prefer to email assignments to students, while another
might choose to deliver it via the e-learning site instead. Also, it’s best to
have clear expectations about how long each item of coursework should take to
Asynchronous and synchronous activities
It’s important to incorporate activities that are more
interactive, as well as those that require the student to brainstorm and
research a topic in depth. This can be an important differentiator in a
company’s elearning best practices mindset and thanks to the internet, students
can now attend live virtual courses as well as complete coursework offline that
can enable them to delve into a specific subject or skill set.
Effective usage of available resources
To get the most out of the online learning experience
both the teacher and the student should take full advantage of the vast amount
of resources that are available online. There are literally hundreds of online services
that offer access to information, with Wikipedia being a prominent example.
Instructors should seize the opportunity to enhance their content with online
material or redirect students to additional web resources. >>read more...
