E-learning today 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 known as Computer Based Training, e-learning was distributed to learners via Laser disc and CD-ROM. Then via DVD and now the internet, where increased band-width allows for faster access.
E-learning today is imparting knowledge on media and electronic devices. 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. This includes PCs, tablets or mobile phones, enabling tests and certification.
It can include text, video, audio, animation and virtual environments. This can be a very rich learning experience that can 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. The learner completes a course having successfully passed a series of Q&As, often set out as Multiple Choice Questions.
We’ve worked with various organisations over the last 20 years:
- 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,
- GDPR Academy’s e-learning/commerce website,
- Capital Tuition Group’s ‘A’ level Economics,
- Jessica Pilates’ home training series,
- GL Assessment’s series of instructional videos on their latest offerings, with internal and external expert commentaries. These are accompanied by a wealth of demonstrations, ‘how-tos’, product visualisations and interviews.
Team360 has also included ‘branching’ within videos and modules, to add additional richness in the learning environment. One example at GL Assessment can be viewed here.
