E-learning or online education and training.

Due to the current situation of things, the pandemic has caused a major relapse in all walks of life and this has been hard on education most especially, but it doesn’t have to be that way because we have technologies that can actually cater for the education need of the student and teachers. 

We are proposing system that allows the teachers to offer lessons and instruction from the comfort of their homes or lecture rooms, this system will allow the users can group chat, video conferencing,  Collaborative Whiteboard, podcast, assignment submission, CBT Testing, notes and file sharing.

E-learning or online education and training – expressions which include all digital technology- based distance teaching and learning processes – refers to a phenomenon that has gained increasing significance in recent years and impacts on school education (from kindergarten to university). 

Online education combines content in formats which vary (including video, audio, 3D simulations, and so on) depending on the specific educational aims in question, technologies, and teaching methodologies that are in keeping with the social ethos of the internet, and, hence, are effective, engaging, and equipped to shape courses to a student’s needs. 

E-learning has undeniable advantages, including: instant access – anytime and anywhere – to educational resources; the opportunity to take part in lessons by “leading lights” on a given subject; greater flexibility of teaching and customized training courses; the possibility of reaching a large number of students at very limited cost; and countless opportunities for continuous learning, including in combination with employers’ in-house talent management programs. On the other hand, the weak points are: the loss of some of the social aspects of in-person classes; the need to establish new evaluation criteria linked to online teaching methods; the proliferation of courses, with the risk of a lowering of standards; and the risk of e-learning programs becoming amassed within the largest and most prestigious universities, with a consequent widening of the gap between the more well-off academic institutions and those with fewer resources.
