E-Learning as an Emerging Technology in India


Journal of Educational Technology Volume 7, Number 1, ISSN 0973-0559


E-learning is a combination of learning services and technology that allow us to provide high value integrated learning any time, any place. It is about a new blend of resources, interactivity, performance support and structured learning activities. This methodology makes use of various types of technologies in order to enhance or transform the learning process, thereby achieving real business and educational value, and so reaching a larger, more diverse learner population with minimal expenditure. Due to the introduction of advanced technology, e-learning is rapidly becoming one of the top methods of educational delivery. This paper provides a comprehensive insight into the current status of e-learning education in India. In addition, it also presents findings of some of the problems, strategies and key issues in the e-learning process, while focusing on some of the emerging technologies which support e-learning. The paper also examines the effects of implementing e-learning in two organizations--the first of which deals with people with special requirements (visually handicapped), using a specific Case Study, and concludes with the growth of the population interested in education. It will also be shown that successful e-learning models can be developed and implemented in universities across the country. Finally, the paper will analyze a method which may enhance the status of e-learning in India if applied as a future prospect.
