E-learning is a term widely used nowadays but does not have a specific definition. It is mostly used for distance education through the internet, without the face-to-face interaction of individuals. In another aspect, E-learning is seen as all the technology used to support the learning process. The meaning of this term also depends on the context in which it is used. For example, in a company, e-learning refers to the strategies that the company’s network uses to provide employees with training courses. At a university, E-learning refers to the courses or study programs that students conduct online, without appearing in physical educational settings.
As organizations and companies adopt technology to improve the efficiency of their daily activities, the use of the Internet becomes necessary. Also as international corporations expand around the world, the chances of working with people from other countries increase, and training these groups is precisely the issue that E-learning is successfully accomplishing. As computer skills and the speed of Internet access increase, E-learning has become very practical and accessible, and its use is growing.
SMART CENTER already offers the opportunity of online training for all interested parties, offering you flexibility and a variety of courses, taught by trained and experienced teachers.
Some important benefits of e-learning can be mentioned:
There are no limits, no restrictions
Along with location constraints, time is another problem that students and teachers face in the case of face-to-face learning, as to pursue a course, individuals must have time and access to the designated area. E-learning avoids these problems.
Designing a course or training, which becomes very interactive and fun thanks to the use of multimedia, increases people’s commitment and interest in such courses.
During the traditional lesson, you have to pay large sums to buy updated versions of textbooks. While book texts are obsolete after a certain period of time and need reprints, this is not present in E-learning.
It just fits
Some e-learning trends give us a clearer picture of how the future of E-learning will be shaped:
Micro-learning: Focuses on designing small learning activities through micro steps in digital environments.
Gamification: It is the use of game thinking and mechanics in a non-game context, but to engage users to solve problems.
Personalized learning: It is the adaptation of pedagogical, curricular and technological environments to meet the needs and aspirations of certain individuals.
