 ITexLi | 2016 | ISBN: 9535102834 | 248 pages

This book provides information on the On-Job Training and Interactive Teaching for E-learning.Adaptive E-learning was proposed to be suitable for students with unique profiles, particular interests, and from different domains of knowledge, so profiles may consider specific goals of the students, as well as different preferences, knowledge level, learning style, rendering psychological profile, and more. Another approach to be taken into account today is the self-directed learning. The book is divided into four sections. The first section covers motivations to be considered for E-learning while the second section presents challenges concerning E-learning in areas like Engineering, Medical education and Biological Studies. New approaches to E-learning are introduced in the third ection, and the last section describes the implementation of E-learning Environments.

This book investigates the eLearning in its many different facets in four sections: Theories, Design, Software, and Application.

The term was coined when electronics, with the personal computer, was very popular and internet was still at its dawn. It is a very successful term, by now firmly in schools, universities, and SMEs education and training. Just to give an example 3.5 millions of students were engaged in some online courses in higher education institutions in 2006 in the USA1.eLearning today refers to the use of the network technologies to design, deliver, select, manage and broaden learning and the possibilities made available by internet to offer to the users synchronous and asynchronous learning, so that they can access the courses content anytime and wherever there is an internet connection.

Learning Management Systems

Title: Higher Education Institutions and Learning Management Systems: Adoption and Standardization

Authors: Rosalina Babo, Ana Azevedo
English | ISBN: 1609608844 | 2011 | 398 pages

Higher Education Institutions and Learning Management Systems: Adoption and Standardization (repost)

E-learning plays a significant role in education, and its importance increases day by day. Learning environments can take a myriad of distinct forms. Learning management systems (LMS) have emerged as an important platform to support effective learning environments. Learning management systems are used throughout higher education institutions (HEI) and the need to know and understand its adoption and usage arises. However, there is a lack of information about how LMS are being used, which are the most adopted, whether there is a country adoption standard and which countries use more LMS.

Higher Education Institutions and Learning Management Systems: Adoption and Standardization provides insights concerning the use of learning management systems in higher education institutions and aims to increase understanding of LMS adoption and usage, providing relevant academic work, empirical research findings and an overview of LMS usage in higher education institutions all over the world.
