e-Learning

  • e-Learning is a combination of learning services and technology to provide high value integrated learning ; anytime, anyplace. It is being accepted in the marketplace as the next evolution of training and the education industry and the next phase in digital revolution.
  • Advances in digital electronics have made e-learning possible because digital data can be - accessed randomly; retrieved fast; manipulated; less storage space requirement etc. These digital tools can be effectively used to enrich the courseware content with multimedia features Audio, video, graphics, 3D-animation etc. This results in better visualization and better understanding & hence, retention of the subject.
  • There are four stages of e-Learning programme viz Technology, Tools (S/W), Standards and Content. e-Learning supplements the conventional delivery of instructions in the class-room and helps in quality improvement of content using ICT tools i.e. Computers, Multimedia and the Web. e-Learning facilitates the learning and delivery process for both the teachers and students.
  • e-Learning is one of the thrust areas identified by the Department for imparting education using educational tools and Communication media. The main thrust of the e-Learning programme is to effectively integrate e-Learning methodology and approach with the conventional classroom system to maximize the benefits flowing from the traditional education system, increase its reach to more and more learners and spread e-Learning from teaching of IT related subjects to other subjects in the school curricula.
  • A number of academic Institutions / R&D Labs have been financially supported by DIT to carry out R&D projects in the field of e-Learning. The fresh proposals are supported in the following thrust areas :
    • Real time video compression and decompression techniques
