There is a need to view online learning as a complementary means of supplementing traditional classroom learning. Traditional classroom learning allows students to attain basic academic skills. But this style of learning sometimes created the anxiety in which instructors have time constraints and have to rush through the learning contents.
Nagarajan and I shared a common vision in introducing an online learning model with the incorporation of comprehensive online content with a real time e-tutor behind the scene to provide the needed assistance to students.
In any online learning program, it requires a strong support from academic instructors and educational contents. Our model fulfils the 2 fundamental criterias in which our developed educational multimedia lessons and segmented assessments are structured to provide students with a clear insight of the topic for self-paced learning that eradicate the anxiety of traditional classroom learning and yet provide students with the ability to manage their own learning program. The online e-tutors provide the needed instructional support which is by no means crucial as students can have their doubts cleared and clarified by the knowledgeable Maths Instructors.
As mentioned, we have already tested this learning model with several collaborative tools such as SPARK and elluminate for Maths Online Learning. We have in fact successfully tested out similar model with VYEW, Skype, etc with great success.
We hope to invite fellow Moodlers to our Demo Portal to have a feel at how this learning model process and the benefits it will bring to students in the form of Learning Anytime and Anyplace.
Do feel free to contact us for a demo account to view the demonstration.
