I would like to give a clarification to one of the points mentioned - Some don’t know how to use them, and some don’t care about them.
---Don't know is not an excuse.Now a days every thing is getting online. Right from the bill payments , dispatching the medical reports, etc. Newly there is a system of online correction of the answer papers. Most of the senior faculty though they are facing a problem in online system of corrections are still managing to cope up with the newer system. Then the younger generations should not find an excuse.
I would like to clarify few points -
Sharing a lot of text leading to a large amount of reading from the screen
Time consumption –e learning consumes a lot of time
Lack of high quality and relevant content
Failure to recognize the target audience
E-learning diminishes creativity
----Content of the topic is delivered in such a way that the students can easily understand and grasp the relevant points( must know areas)
-----e- learning does not consume lot of time. In fact it saves a lot of time
----It is highly beneficial to the slow learners as they can go through the discussion any number of times which is not possible in traditional teaching.
I would like to clarify few points mentioned-Lack of flexibility in the module and No self-discipline in the learning process.
e learning module can be designed in such a way by giving fixed time period for the students to view the discussion and also answer to the questions provided. By doing this the students can revise the topic any number of times with in the duration provided. This give the flexibility of the module and can induce self discipline in the student( as he/she will be answering to the questions with in specified time duration)
I would like to clarify the first point- Highly motivated students can only cope up with the E-learning. Personal attention and monitoring is requires for other students
--------e- learning is not just for motivated and fast learners. In fact it creates a motivation for the students to learn by using latest technology. Slow learners are highly benefited by this. As the students can watch and hear to the explanation to any number of times until they understand.
We cant say how many students grasp all the points conveyed by the teacher in the classroom.Slow learners will definitely left behind in regular classroom teaching.
Dear Anupamma madam,
I would like to clarify one of your points - Technology may be intimidating, confusing or simply frustating
Answer -Your point is valid initially , when we have to adopt a new change. With the time and advancement in science we need to keep pace with it.
Any thing new initially seems to be impossible. In fact its not that tough to get used to the newer technology.
Dr. Geeta madam,
I would like to answer the question - that practical skills are developed only by demonstrations
In e learning the demonstrations can be done i the form of a video and the main advantage is it can be viewed any number of times , which is not possible with the live demonstrations( which can be only once )
