E-learning is a process of learning/teaching that is carried out through a platform that integrates information and communication as central themes, being characterized by the physical separation between the teacher and the students. Thanks to the great importance that this method of teaching and learning is starting to have, here at CAE we have decided to share e-learning’s advantages and trends with everyone in an e-book format.
E-learning courses at Dexway use a proprietary methodology that encourages the concept of “learning by doing” and, to accomplish this, our methodology integrates the latest trends in technology as applied to teaching. This philosophy guides CAE’s solutions toward a model based on a natural learning process – one that is progressive and complete (not leaving gaps in knowledge) and in which students assimilate the different concepts in an intuitive way through ongoing use and practice.
All training materials on the e-learning platform is easily accessible by students in a single click, no matter if they connect with a computer, smartphone, or tablet. As you can see, there are many advantages:
E-learning offers greater flexibility when compared with the conventional way of learning in a traditional classroom setting. This is because a set schedule is not necessary. Once the course has been configured, students can do it at any time of the day and they can set their own pace in learning in accordance with the time that they dispose of and the goals that they have defined for themselves.
This advantage is closely related to the aforementioned one, as students can easily access the course content at any time. The only thing needed is a connection to the internet in order to be able to gain access to the course content, contact tutors, and do exams.
#Adaptation to the learning pace
Online courses have a duration that is broad enough for students to be able to finish training at whatever pace they like.
#Unlimited virtual resources
The majority of online courses have a virtual platform, also known as a Virtual Campus, where the students have access to all the training content, where they can get in touch with tutors and mates, where they can upload their work, etc
Course content can be updated immediately. In e-learning courses, any change can be made at any time so that students can access information that is always up to date. This is practically unthinkable in the conventional form of learning.
E-learning courses have the great advantage of being able to be personalized in such a way that all students are able to have a different view on their educational platform where they can see their progress, the activities they have completed and those still pending, etc.
#Compatibility with other life activities
E-learning is compatible with many other activities. This is because students can connect from anywhere and at any time, making this type of learning very easy to manage in terms of time
#Reduction of learning times
Numerous studies have found that learning times can be reduced between 40% and 60% when compared with traditional classroom learning if e-learning solutions are offered.
#Reducction of cost
The previous advantages bring about this last one: reduction of costs. This is true for both the school and for the student. This reduction can reach up to 30% less when compared with traditional, face-to-face instruction.
