Online EducationOn-line training
- In this class we will discuss online education. Online-education is a type of education that is provided and managed via the web. It would have been hard to think of high-quality teaching online twenty years ago. More than 6 million people are registered for post-secondary classes online.
Now, online education or online studying is a wide notion. The opposite side of the range is regarded as conventional education. Let's take a look at some concepts that illustrate the level of integration of online assets. Firstly, we have face-to-face training where there are no online elements.
However, teachers in face-to-face classes often use the web to some extent to exchange materials and offer outside school. That is web-based training. Recently, a hybrid approach has emerged that involves the student in an important personal aspect of the course, but also demands online teaching.
It is called blind studying. Then there is online studying, where everything is done online and there are little or no personal lessons. The course is conducted online in all areas, including: resource sharing, discussion, access to and submission of tasks, assessment management and comment. This course will focus on online teaching, although the course principle may be applicable to most of these schemes.
Now online education can be further disaggregated, e.g. in synchronised versus synchronised teaching Synchronised teaching relates to teaching where the teacher and pupils interact in class in the classroom in real times. Of course, a face-to-face course is synchronized, but there are also synchronized online lessons where class meets through face-to-face or video conferencing.
Then there is asychronous teaching, where teachers and pupils do not get together in person. Ressources and actions are retrieved and finalized online if comfortable for the person attending the course. Different stages of synchronous teaching also exist. This course you are currently observing, for example, is totally outdated.
We do not get together face to face and there is no limit to our schedule or our work. While most online classes through a subsidiary or post-secondary programme are not conducted face-to-face, appointments and timelines are made. There are also often periods when a course may be primarily out of sync, but from case to case the teacher will require the student to get together via a web conferencing or living chat forums, which will easily synchronize it.
The majority of online classes are out of sync, as this approach maximises the versatility of online classes. These are, however, some of the things you need to consider when you create your online course.
