Remote Learning Through Virtual Learning Environments

March 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 115

E-learning has a wide list of benefits compared to traditional classroom training. While not having to travel or spend time away from work are the most obvious advantages, e-learning has others that might be so transparent.

It is self-paced. While most individuals have responsibilities at work, e-learning programs can be taken when needed. Module-based designs for this kind of learning are divided into small chapters of training which can be studied at the individual's own convenient time.

It is a quicker training. Because of its individualized approach, it allows learners to study only the materials they need training on which makes this learning method progress 50% faster than conventional methods.

It is flexible with time and location. With e-learning, it is still possible for people with tight schedules to do the trainings anywhere and anytime.

With its quick update uploaded to its server, there is increased retention on the subject. Video, audio, quizzes, interaction and others are included in the program where one can revisit or replay sections of the training that seem to be vague the first time.

Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) also referred as Learning Management System tackles students learning activities like E-learning for workers. VLE are components where tutors and learners take part in online interactions of different kinds which includes online learning. With this program tutors and students can locally and remotely share and generate knowledge without the need to travel out of their local setting. There is a wide variation of subjects with VLE from courses like Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine, Accountancy, Economics, Law, and Business management. Countries such as Australia, US, and some European nations commonly refer VLS as 'Learning Management Systems' (LMS) or 'Course Management Systems'.

A variety of different tools are bundled into packages for many commercial VLEs. These learning tools can be used individually or linked together or can even complement an existing software. More often a VLE is linked to information systems in an institution such as library, student records, intranet and others where students are only required to log in once in the system using a password and then can move between systems without having to log in again. This is referred to as Managed Learning Environment (MLE). But to clarify while MLE is the term for a whole range of software and systems which share data and manage the learner experience, VLE focuses on learning and teaching which usually uses specific software.

.The interactive tools of VLE can support students with class and homework in these ways:

• Tracking and submission of assignments online using a personal homepage; • Working within and away of school at their own pace; • Participate with classmates discussions via various tools • Work on worksheets and tests online for grading • Attempt offline assignments following instructions from the learning platform.
