E learning: Introduction
M. Khan was a pleasant engineer in America. His niece, who lived in a nearby town, would ask for help in finding answers to science questions, especially maths questions, and would continue to provide answers online.
Then more people started taking advantage of e learning method, so this series started becoming popular. Khan was proving to be an influential teacher. The story is that he quit his job and his online platform is a very popular educational medium. His popularity and popularity are such that the Bill Gates Foundation gave him a grant of 5 million dollars. It is as if small and big grants are raining.
Now Khan is also taking help from other teachers and one of his programs has been introduced by Bill Gates himself. This is just a reality of ‘online education’. Now Ekalavya and Shambuk cannot be punished. The best education available from Eaton, Harrow to Harvard and MIT is now available to all. Online courses are growing so fast that John Hannessy of Stanford University has called it a ‘tsunami’.
“This method is individual and human and education If the medium and the goal of it is human, then the method needs to be human. ”
E-learning method is a modern learning system that can be used only in technologically developed countries. Operation of e-learning method requires video conferencing, voice recorder and applications that can secure written or voice matter.
This method of teaching is proving to be effective in the most developed and developed countries at the present time. In countries like America, Western Europe, Canada, Australia, e-learning method of teacher is spreading as an alternative and popular teaching method. Developed countries are using this method to save both labor and time. The method of e-learning is very useful as an alternative to such teaching method which is eliminating the creativity of children from the burden of copybook and homework.
Some innovative uses of e-learning are also seen in developing countries, especially in cities. One reason for the considerable reduction in the number of teachers in public schools is that schools are now emphasizing on e-learning. But the method of e-learning is not yet effective in developing countries. There are several reasons for this, first, that developing countries are unable to provide the technical and capital required for e-learning on a large scale.
Secondly, some private schools in developing countries can provide e-learning facilities, but more schools and colleges are not able to provide e-learning. Thirdly, the tradition of sitting at home and receiving education is not in the developing country, especially in India, so parents of affluent households who can arrange e-learning also send their children to school. Fourth e-learning method requires high technical and capital and skill which is not widespread in developing countries.
In spite of the varying conditions of this innovative teaching method in developed and developing countries, it has some important features. This method is most useful for children who are unable to attend school due to any reason, mainly due to physical disability. For them, the system of e-learning can be similar to Pran Vayu. In the process of e-learning, students can get all the information through the Internet, for which they have to go to schools, classrooms and teachers.
The ‘Programming Material’, once prepared in order of e-learning, can be preserved for many years and changes can also be made over time. Ineligible teachers will be identified through e-learning, children will have the option of e-learning, they will not need to read from unqualified teachers.
Some basic features and infrastructure will be required to make e-learning smoothly. To make computer education compulsory in primary level education and to make all primary schools, whether private or public, equipped with computer and internet facilities. In the beginning, a class e-learning should be kept in the school time table itself so that the interest of the children is developed in other areas besides the formal method of teaching.
Importance of teacher
Overall, this method is individual and human and if the medium and goal of education is human then the method needs to be human. It is also related to this that even the most efficient machine cannot be a human option. Even today a computer chess player loses to Anand because the man has the last guts. The other side effects of increasing mechanization are being exposed. Education is not even the kind of production in which the products are identical – according to the desired quality.
This is one side. The second aspect is that not all teachers are equally skilled and creative. Therefore their benefit is only available to their students, who are provided with such skilled and creative teachers. Online education can make them available to all. This in itself is a big argument in favor of this system.
The complementary logic of this is that not everyone can go to Harvard. Neither is it possible for everyone to raise money. Whereas in a few rupees CDs of the world’s biggest knowledgeable and famous teachers of their subjects can be available everywhere. Today, even in towns, there is a lot of cyber cafes with the facility of using the net for 5 to 10 rupees per hour.
“Vivek-driven ‘online education’ can actually lead to infinite possibilities in the magnitude and quality of education.”
Essentials of e-learning
Two more important aspects of this method are empowerment and democratization. Today is the time for empowerment. Every person and community wants to be empowered. No tradition, no dignity and no recognition can stop him. This method is equally available to all by overcoming all prejudices and values-beliefs and prejudices.
That is why this method is also a special tool of education to develop and propagate democratization in the society. In the path of this system, religion, caste, gender, regionalism, patriarchy, Brahminism, nothing can become an obstacle.
Finally, if we understand the interrelationship of human and instrument, we can avoid redundancy. From the Stone Age till now, all kinds of instruments have been developed according to human needs. Humans robot have also become much more powerful and efficient than normal power and intelligence. But the creator of the device and the driver-robot is also human. On the other hand, the prehistoric human monkey child would have remained the same if he had not developed the instruments.
The instruments have exposed the potential and potential of man and made him a great creator and operator. Human creativity and destructiveness are becoming infinite. In this case, discretion is the key. Vivek-driven ‘online education can actually lead to the quantum and quality of education with endless possibilities.
