E-tivities: An active online learning with conceptual background resources
R. Jayakumar, Krishnakumar. R
Our present educational systems, pressures at every level of training and education in the 21st century are paradoxical than pleasure at every level educational technology. We must reduce costs, increase student numbers and improve quality. We are moving away from ‘factory’ education, whether classroom based or distance towards provision for learning of a more experiential, applied and individual kind. So, we can personalize and customize learning and yet make it efficient and effective. As the ‘hype’ around e-learning as the panacea and the trigger for changes in education is dying away. Reports of expensive failures of new forms of educational organizations continue to hit the headlines. Instead of the predicted replacement of education by electronic means, we witness a web of educational providers, using ever more sophisticated networked technologies, constantly repositioning themselves in a slippery market place. Higher and corporate education is seeing the most dramatic challenges and opportunities, but primary and secondary education are gradually digitizing too.
