About E-Learning Activitiy


E-Learning is a learning system based on formalised teaching with the help of electronic resources. It is provided through electronic devices such as computers, tablets and even cellular phones that are connected to the internet. This makes it easy for users to learn anytime, anywhere with few, if any, restrictions. New technologies are changing the way learning is delivered and it has been found that visuals, apart from holding the attention of the student, are also retained by the brain for longer periods. E-Learning also enables educators to get a higher degree of coverage to communicate the message in a consistent way for their students. A learning management system (LMS) is a software application that is used to deliver E-Learning. Instead of having the E-Learning content spread out over different hard drives and devices, LMS allows to store all of the E-Learning materials in one location. Delivering the course through an LMS keeps the content centralized so that all the students have a single source of content, instructions and questions. Technology is the foundation, backbone, and catalyst of LMS. Technology provides endless opportunities for learning through apps, smartphones, videos, search engines, and other real-time information sources. This has grown into a medium with immense possibilities comprising of a world of skill improvement, enhancement of learning and understanding, and changing attitudes and behaviours in a period of time.
