materials and instructional information that is delivered
electronically over the Web, through an organization' s intranet, or
via CD-ROM, is known as e-Learning. An online course is a popular type
of e-Learning which can include test questions. Using multimedia and
interactive technology to illuminate the topic, e-Learning can engage
the learner with video and audio features, self-paced navigation, and
options such as pop-up hints and hyperlinks to related topics.
|In a world where access to information is
the key to staying competitive, organizations rely on people who are
continualy leranng new skills, crafting innovative solutions to
changing circumstancesand staying informed and responsive. With
e-Learning, you can provide afordable training to as many employees or
business partners as you need, at any time, fro any location. You can
create an instant, state-of-the-art learning system in a fraction of
the time needed to implement a more traditional solution. You also
have access to solid reporting tools that allow you easily track both
student progress and your training budget.
|When you compare e-learning with
traditional classroom training, e-learning has many advantages. One
advantage is cost savings. Corporatins and schools often need to
strech funds while maintaining high quality training progams. The cost
of developing, distributing, and maintaining an e-learning applicatin
is often much more less than the cost of an instructor led-training
program. Online learning can help organizations get the most out of
their budgets and can add valuable learining tools and techniques.
Another advantage to e-Learning is the ability to update any topic
in your published content and deliver the results instantly over
the internet or an intranet. Now all of your learning material can be
up-to-date wihout the expense of reprinting a book , storing
inventory, or manually distributing an update.
In an online course, you can deliver an unlimited number of
colorful graphics and special effects that direct attention to the
important points in the learning material. Students can interact with
new material right away, by answering practice questions and directing
their own learing pace. When you include questions in a course,
student answers can be automatically tracked with a e-learning
management system such as Ingenium from click2learn.com.
