|Hanlun's eLearning augments the traditional
teaching-learning process with multimedia and network technologies,
opening up a whole range of possibilities hitherto undreamed of. eLearning
provides a system that is more flexible, cost-effective, and ultimately,
highly beneficial to students, teachers, and the educational establishment
as a whole.
|Students will find the eLearning environment
less structured than that of the traditional classroom. The design
of the program allows students to learn at their own pace. Additionally,
course content is designed, produced and updated by professional content
providers. The system is also able to pinpoint trouble areas of individual
students so that their needs can be addressed.
|Traditional classroom teaching is poor
usage of a teacher's expertise. In the eLearning environment, teachers
will save time since teaching is done through the eLearning program.
The increase in free time will allow teachers to provide more personal
attention to students on a one-to-one or small group basis. By using
the assessment and reporting tools provided by eLearning, teachers
will be able to monitor their students' progress. This will allow
teachers to quickly identify students who may be experiencing difficulties
and prescribe a suitable remedy.
|For Educational Institutions
|Network technologies allow educational
institutions to break through the confines of the campus and cater
to those requiring distance learning. Current technology allows institutions
to be organized as a wide-area network consisting of a main campus
as a hub and a network of learning centres that can be established
in even the most remote locations. Institutions will also be able
to increase the diversity of their course offerings by tapping into
the eLearning content of third parties. Preliminary studies have shown
that the cost per student will be substantially reduced.
