Introduction to E-learning
"E-learning focuses on online context
computer- based learning. It includes a full
range of platforms and delivery methods genres, formats and media such as multimedia, educational programming, simulations, games and the use of new media on fixed and mobile platforms across
all discipline areas. It is often characterized by
active learner-centered pedagogies".
(Baltasar Fernández Manjón, 2007)

E-learning Today
Benefits of E-learning
Saves time (Anytime)
Place is not an issue (Anywhere)
Suitable pace
Suitable style
Updated Content
Cost saving for learner
Cost saving for organization
Learners learn what they need to learn
Improving productivity
Rapid deployment of content
Increasing globalized business environment by delivering an
online content
Immediate access to informative resources
Reduced employee turnover
History Of E-learning
Benefits of E-learning
Can we Learn Online?
Do we have the ability to soak up information in this fashion?
Can we truly learn new skills and expand our knowledge by learning virtually?
It is true that as individuals we don’t all respond to one teaching method in the same way. so?!!
E-learning responses to all different educational needs with the use of different tools and a variety of materials.

E-learning in comparison with traditional learning, significantly reduces the time needed to locate information.

It also offers access to online resources, databases, periodicals, journals and other material you wouldn’t normally have access to from a library.

If a student has trouble understanding part of coursework, finding tips on the matter couldn't now be easier than having immediate access to supplementary materials.
Learning online In Practice
Harvard and MIT have lunched programs focused on offering classes online for free (recorded sessions, Webinar).

MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses)

Strengths of e-learning
Convenient –anytime, anywhere.
Learner-centered; learners are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
Improved motivation; studying only what is required.
Interaction with materials; a variety of activities to suit different learning styles.
Interaction with other learners.
Cost and time saving, learner will not be obliged to travel (losing time and money) to take a training course or to continue his/her study.
Online and offline student-content interactions are monitored.

Weaknesses of E-Learning
Harder for e-tutor to measure learner’s level of understanding.
Some learners may not feel comfortable with the technology.
Learners may feel isolated and unsupported. There is less social interaction time
The technology can break down.
Learners may lack the self-motivation required, as they don’t know how to be independent learners.
Loss of nonverbal communication which is necessary in traditional classroom to evaluate the interaction of students, and that causes a lack of motivation.
The authenticity of the person who write the homework.
Differences between traditional and e-learning
World-Class Content
Anytime Anywhere (Learning on demand), in traditional learning, learner must attend courses in classes.
Easy Presentation of Complex Info.
Consistency, E-learning ensures that the same message is transferred to learners every time.
Self Learning.
Performance Tracking
Sustainable and Cost Effective

Types of E-learning
Blended Learning
Synchronous E-Learning
Synchronous e-learning is when students tutors meet online to exchange experiences and learning. Power Point is the most used tool in synchronous learning, which requires online deliverable tools. One of the most deliverable tools used in this kind of learning is Virtual classroom.
Synchronous class meetings are indispensable for efficient learning, especially when appropriate tools are available for both the learner and the instructor.
Some of the tools are:
1. Desktop view 2. Co-browse 3. Video conference
4. Chat 5. Voice-chat
6. Application sharing
The future of E-learning
Micro learning
Personalized learning
Systems used in E-Learning
Learning Management System (LMS):
it is a computer system developed for managing online courses, distributing course materials and allowing collaboration between students and teachers.
Content Authoring tool:
is a software package which developers use to create and package e-learning content deliverable to end users.
Assessment Management System (AMS)
Virtual Classroom
Asynchronous E-Learning
Asynchronous can be carried out even when the student or teacher is offline.
Coursework and communications delivered via web, email and messages posted on community forms are perfect examples of asynchronous e-learning. In this instances, students will typically complete the lessons on their own and merely use the internet as a support tool rather than venturing online solely for interactive classes.
Student is able to follow the curriculum on their own space without worry about schedule conflict.
students who lack the motivation to do coursework on their own may find that they do not receive a significant benefit from asynchronous learning.
it can also lead to feeling in isolation, because there is no interaction in learning environment.

Benefits to learners:
Student participation increases.
Learning becomes student-driven.
Student collaboration and communication increases.
Cost Savings.
Personalized instruction (using media to meet
different learning styles).
A new way of learning (More Fun)
learners are able to continue their study anytime
anywhere, in the suitable pace and style
Benefits to instructors:
E-learning provides the instructors the ability
to host lectures without having to spend much
money, it can be done virtually with cameras,
microphones for both students and tutors.
Tutors have the ability of teach students
anytime anywhere.
Also it is technically easier for him to update
online content comparing to updating static
content, and to direct learners to access it.
Time in classroom can be spent on
questions and discussions
effective e-learning courses should include both asynchronous and synchronous learning activities
. this allow students and teachers to benefit from the different delivery formats regardless of their schedules or preferred learning methods. this approach provides students with access to immediate help if needed, while still giving them the ability to learn at their own space.
Blended Learning
E-Learning Trends 2016
Augmented Learning
Huge Data
Striving for cloud
scenario learning

Blended learning is a structured opportunity to learn, which use more than one learning or training method, inside or outside classroom
the delivery method for a blended approach
Paradigm Shift in the
Learning Process

should be short
(5-10 minutes or less).
Sessions should be
focused on one task or concept
They should have
no more than 10 seconds of introductory material.
They should be genuine— in other words, they should
feel relatable and personal
They should be
accessible, compatible with multiple platforms, and searchable.
Learners can learn while at work, on their lunch breaks, on the bus, at home, on their laptops, via Chromecast, etc.
The sessions should have
easy controls to pause, skip back 30 seconds
or rewind
(so learners can follow along, take notes, etc.). If in text or another format, the sessions need to have equivalent functionality.
Micro Learning
Augmented Learning
1- Developing truly interactive and immersive
scenarios and simulations.
2- Improved learner knowledge assessments.
3- Quick and convenient
supplemental information.
4- Taking mobile learning
to the next level.
5- Developing detailed
first-person tutorials.
6- On-demand learning, whenever you need it,
7- Safe learning in hazardous
ex: Google Glasses
Allows eLearning professionals to understand how the learners are digesting the information and which learning needs appeal the most to them.
Enables eLearning professionals to pinpoint areas that may need to be fine tuned within the eLearning course or module.
Provides an analysis of which eLearning modules are visited the most and in the case of social learning which eLearning modules or links are shared with other learners.
Data is received almost immediately, rather than having to wait for long periods of time to receive assessments. This means that eLearning professionals can begin implementing changes or utilizing the data to fine tune their eLearning strategy right away.
Based upon patterns, eLearning professionals have the power to predict where learners may struggle or excel.
Big Data
How Big Data Will Impact The Future of eLearning
Offering invaluable feedback.
Allowing eLearning professionals to design more personalized eLearning courses.
Targeting effective eLearning strategies and eLearning goals.
Tracking learner patterns.
Expanding our understanding of the eLearning process.
Big data in terms of the eLearning industry, is the data that is created by learners while they are taking an eLearning course or training module.
Schools start to deliver online courses for people who is not able to attend due to geographical or time constraints.
it help in reducing cost of distance learning.
it help to bring education to wider audience.
Personalized learning
Is the tailoring of pedagogy, curicullum and learning environment to meet the needs and aspirations of individual learners.
Is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in a non-game context to engage users and solves problems.
