Learning is conducted via electronic media, typically on the Internet.
“successful e-learning depends on the self-motivation of individuals to study effectively”
Having been involved in e-learning projects over the last 20 years, we’ve seen a lot of changes.
Originally termed CBT (Computer Based Training), e-learning was (and still is) distributed to learners via CD-ROM, then DVD and now the internet, where increased band-width allows for faster access.
But what is it?
E-learning is imparting and facilitating knowledge on media and electronic devices already mentioned, and it has extended the method of learning from home to all students.
This is used for induction (onboarding) and CPD, easily accessible with all devices whether they be PCs, tablets or mobile phones, enabling tests and certification.
It can include text, video, audio, animation and virtual environments. It can be a very rich learning experience that can even surpasses the level of training you might experience in a crowded classroom. It is self-paced, hands-on learning.
Typically projects are divided into a series of modules linked together in a progressive order, with the student or learner completing a course having successfully passed a series of Q&As, usually set out as MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions).
We’ve already worked with Guidant on the ‘Heart’ for specialists fitting pacemakers in surgery, Zimmer on ‘Knee Replacement’, Aylesbury Vale District Council on ‘Customer Care’, Hyde Housing Group’s Induction Course, QVC’s Induction Course, Surrey County Council’s ‘Business Continuity Programme’, Pearson’s Test of English, Morrison’s ‘Convenience Food Hygiene’, GDPR Academy’s e-learning/commerce website, Capital Tuition Group’s ‘A’ level Economics, Jessica Pilates’ home training series and GL Education Group’s YouTube series of instructional videos on their latest products and offerings, with internal and external expert commentaries accompanied by a wealth of demonstrations, ‘how-tos’, product visualisations, conference coverage and branded animations.
Team360 has also included ‘branching’ within videos and modules, to add additional richness in the learning environment.
