Remember me


Most companies say that they are involved in e-learning. When you ask them what they’ve done, many say that they have a lot of resources available online. They may have online tutorials for PC packages (eg. Excel) or soft skill packages on CD Rom, and then there is all the other information that they have available online. But just because content is available online, it doesn’t mean that it’s e-learning.

E- learning applications and online learning provides for many and varied forms of interaction, even though in reality there are only a few true interaction techniques: rollover, click, drag, type text. It is the presentation and layout that adds variety and interest. For example, rather than a series of textual true/false questions, two large coloured buzzers can be presented which learners press to respond to each question. This activity can be further enhanced with sound effects if permissible. The learner is still clicking for the answer, but it feels very different.
