What is online education?
Online education, also known as distance learning or e-learning, differs from traditional education because students are not required to visit an actual classroom and listen to an instructor face-to-face. Our desktop is our class room. The study materials include PDF formats with discussion, video formats, animations, audios etc.
The software ‘Moodle’ uses many universities for course management. By using this software they can share the study material and they can do class tests, progress reports and certificate issuing also using this software. The university can control all activities using this software.
Another one is ‘myvideotalk’. myvideotalk using for video mailing. Using this we can conduct online classes we have the power to control all students. We can send the online class video to specified students and these video classes can restrict forwarding through mails by them.
What is traditional method education?
The traditional method requires a classroom, teacher, black board and other class room accessories. The students need the oral speech from lecturer to understand the specified lesson or topic and then write the lecture notes. But the online education and e-learning provides the opportunities to get a better visual presentation through animations and videos along with the audios.
