Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The analysis of such situations shows that effective eLearning can take the best from traditional education and even surpass it. Modern learning tools should allow instructors and students to create, edit, and comment on all presented materials. This will encourage discussion and keep everybody updated on the latest news. Webinars and instant messages in chats are especially necessary in the corporate sector, for example when new products are put on the market and the first hands-on experiences are highly valued

Stewart-Marshall's insight:

For years people have been asking "Is online education as good as face-to-face education?" But we shouldn't ask that question because it implies that F2F is some sort of gold standard, and in my experience that is certainly not the case. It's rather like asking the question "Is a TESLA car as good as a Reliant Robin?"

Valid points.  E-Learning has evolved. There are so many tools now and ways to collaborate and communicate online.
