With online education becoming popular in traditional universities and the independent education sector, e-learning is set for a big leap. The current classroom-based mode of learning delivery has its limitations such as geography, lack of scalability, long turnaround time for change, customization being difficult and more importantly high investment on monitoring and evaluation.
“E-learning helps apply the right learning technologies to transfer the right skill to the right people at the right time. Retention and reinforcement of learning is enhanced through follow up mechanisms on the web. This offers the flexibility to people who wish to pursue their higher education,” says Karthik K.S., Founder and Managing Director of 24×7 Learning, a firm that specialises in tools enabling delivery of virtual classrooms.
While the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) has launched its e-learning initiatives through the EDUSAT education satellite, the growth in e-learning for the working people has more to do with Senior Management’s acceptance of training in general, according to Mr. Karthik.
The St. Joseph’s College of Business Administration here has organised a seminar-cum-workshop on “Integrated marketing communications in the digital age” on October 6 and 7.
The event will be held at the Hotel Chancery Pavilion, Residency Road. For details, call 2127781.
