In English it is the abbreviation of the words "Electronic Learning" which in Italian means "teaching - learning via the Internet", or even "training via the internet". Other synonyms with the same meaning are "online training", "online learning", "tele-didactics". E-Learning can be written with the hyphen, but "e-learning" or "e-learning" can also be written, as "online training" can also be written "online training". To put it simply, e-learning is a type of training that allows you to take courses directly online.
The e-learning course is a content available online within an "eLearning platform" or "LMS" in which a topic is developed in the most interactive way possible. A well done elearning course will contain texts, but also videos, audio files, quizzes, exercises and other activities that allow the user to interact in person. The eLearning course exploits the potential made available by the Internet to provide asynchronous training to users, who can access course content at any time and in any place where an internet connection exists. This characteristic, combined with the type of design of teaching materials, leads to defining some forms of eLearning courses as "student-centered teaching solutions".
The elearning courses provided by modern LMS platforms can be followed with any device connected to the Internet via broadband (ADSL / fiber or 3G / HSDPA / HSUPA): it can be a fixed or portable PC, a tablet or a smartphone. It is necessary to have an e-mail box to receive communications regarding the course from the eLearning platform and an updated internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera or the respective mobile browser version) . It is not necessary to always connect from the same PC or telephone because the frequency of the course can take place from any Internet location.
The quality and effectiveness of an e-Learning system depends on how the platform, the course and its contents are designed. It is necessary to design a course that is able to communicate clearly and effectively to the user. When necessary, a prior verification of linguistic understanding (especially for foreign users) must be provided before they can access the course. During the course, the teacher must use a clear and understandable language; the written contents presented must be easily legible; in-depth videos must make the examples they refer to clearly understandable; the in-depth documents must allow the user to increase the basic information provided by the course; the learning verification tests must present questions designed in such a way that they are easily understandable, adequate and inherent to the contents of the lectures and displayed at random to guarantee the impossibility of proposing tests identical to different users and in the event of failure to pass by user; the duration of the course must meet the legal requirements; the time of use must be measurable in an effective way, recording this it takes the user to view the various components of the course, without applying any "invented" coefficient (eg assuming that an e-Learning hour is equivalent to 2 classroom hours).
No, high-level computer skills are not required. If you know how to use a word processing program and e-mail, you can also play an e-learning course.
Because of its characteristic, an eLearning course can be done at any time of the day, any day of the week, so it is available on the eLearning platform 7 days a week, 24 hours a day for each student to freely choose. Nor is it necessary for students to be all connected at the same time because an eLearning course is not a videoconference.
No, it is not necessary, because the topics of the lectures are divided into short topics which are in turn divided into individual educational contents. The student can follow the eLearning courses from a few minutes to the entire duration of the course, depending on his time availability.
Only properly registered participants can access the course, using an individual password that they receive via email when the course is activated. So the e-learning platform is not a site to access freely.
Those who are conducting an eLearning course are assisted by tutors / mentors (in this case called e-Tutors or e-mentors) both for technical functioning problems and for problems related to the didactic contents of the course. For training in occupational safety Tutors meet the requirements for trainers / professors from the inter-ministerial decree of 6 March 2013 "Qualification criteria for the figure of the trainer for health and safety in the workplace".
It means "mixed" training. these are courses that are developed partly in the classroom, also known as "face-to-face training", and partly via Internet access by accessing a so-called "eLearning platform" or "LMS".
Participants in an eLearning course can "talk" to each other and with tutors and teachers via chat (synchronous mode) or via discussion forums (asynchronous mode). Precisely this possibility of dialogue generates a learning that does not pass only from teacher to student, but also between students themselves, relying on their experiences and their professionalism, which are shared.
The course is divided into modules and each module in teaching units. A teaching unit is the basic unit of learning (it could correspond to one or more lessons of a corresponding course in the classroom). Each teaching unit is composed of videos, slides, texts to read and study, self-study tests, online games or simulations or exercises to perform. All materials are made specifically for use via the Internet.
No, the teaching units and their contents are available according to a precise sequence that guarantees progressive learning and adherence to the regulatory programs, but once the lessons have been taken the students can consult them for the entire remaining duration of the course. p >
Yes, the eLearning courses require each participant to carry out a self-study test at the end of each teaching unit, as well as games and exercises.
A properly designed e-Learning system allows the possibility for a supervisory body to carry out online verification activities on each user. The course administrator must have the possibility to check at any time the situation of the training course of the user, accessing the data of the "LOG" of the user or the number of times he has entered the teaching system with date, time and duration of the connection; courses, teaching units and individual parts of the course carried out with the evaluation data of the effectiveness of the course carried out. The duration of the training must be validated by the course tutor.
There are good reasons to prefer Mega Italia e-Learning courses over those of other companies, such as: The quality of the course contents is guaranteed by the teachers who have been active for years in training for safety at work and by the specific twenty-year experience of Mega Italia Media in the design and provision of training courses.
High-level references provided by national and multinational companies with thousands of employees trained annually in e-Learning mode with Mega Italia Media courses. The systems for the provision of online courses are stable and ultra-tested, with suitable technological services and dedicated to sustaining high traffic loads. The users declare in a documentable way a high level of satisfaction of our courses in e-Learning, with a very low degree of abandonment. All our courses allow continuous interactivity between the educational platform and the course user.
