E-Pedagogy: The Heart of Today’s E-Learning

  • Director, IIIT Kottayam, Kerala, India Institute of National Importance


The Education was a very stable sector till 1990. The E-Learning has converted it into a dynamic sector. Every year hundreds of new technologies have been introduced. It gives new shape to e-learning. The major components of e-learning system are technology, content and pedagogy. For using the e-learning technologies effectively there is a need to re-define the old pedagogy or cognitive science. This re-defining process has given berth to the new field, namely e-pedagogy or e-cognitive science. Still it is in initial stage. This paper describes the new e-pedagogy techniques to develop efficient multimedia based e-learning products. In the case study the 50 hours C language CBT has been developed and tested over 300 students. It has produced very encouraging results.
... This means 2/3 are not visual learners. To teach, two/three dimensional graphic, to these category of students is quite difficult using traditional methods like blackboard [18]. For 2-D/3D transformations, the new technique has been developed using C language. ...

The Computer Graphics is one of the core & difficult subjects of Computer discipline. To teach the working of the complicated algorithms using blackboard is a difficult task because it involves complicated data structures as well as constraints from computer hardware. On the top of this, three dimensional concepts can not be explained with the help of traditional black board teaching techniques. To develop the e-learning product for such subject is a challenging task. This paper describes innovative e-learning methods, tools and techniques to develop effective e-learning product for this subject.
The Reusable Learning Objects (RLO) are small, self-contained modules of learning that tackle a single concept, information, procedure or fact that can be delivered independently. To develop independent RLO for linear teaching method is a straightforward job. But the process becomes tedious for non-linear Funnel approach teaching because of two characteristics of RLO namely reusability and independent nature. The interactive multimedia is a better choice for developing e-learning software. To use these technologies for effective e-learning solutions, the developer should have in-depth knowledge of e-pedagogy, which makes the process more complicated. To develop web-based e-learning solutions the Learning Management System (LMS) is essential. The SCORM compatible RLOs are needed for LMS, which adds further overheads. The magnitude of complexity increases if these RLOs are used to simulate the teacher of programming languages. This paper describes a special technique to do this job.

21 st century is the century of Hi-Tech. Recently Hi- Tech is comprises with IT, ICT, BT and Nano-Technology. Today ICT (Information Communication Technology) is a unique technology which is used universally in all span of life. ICT plays a predominant role in the creation and development of knowledge. The ICT revolution has changed the learning process of childhood up to the real world.E-learning is a combination of learning services and technologyto provide high values. Internet plays a vital role in e-learning. Elearning is attaining significance in the world of internet. Due tothe advantages of in internet, e-learning reached at any time andany where. To meet the demands of our global economy, there mustbe corresponding adoptions of e-learning in child education todevelop 21st century skills. Computers are reshaping children’slives, at home and at school in profound and unexpected ways.In this paper, we have discussed problems, considerations, issues and approaches to e-learning in India with giving stress on important features of e-learning and benefit of elearning for rural child development. The paper also highlights elearning’s applicability and acceptance in developing country like India. Digital learning in India is limited one but implementation and planning for e-learning and development of ICT is important. E-learning technologies have great potential to spread learning. However, the benefits of these technologies have to reach the rural masses of India; otherwise it will be one of the causes of the Digital Divide.
