What does Online Learning actually mean?

Online learning is a learning that requires the use of the network environment. In this kind of environment students are not learning in a place, as we usually understand in the ordinary sense but in a shared “space” usually called the “cyberspace”. A learning network ‘classroom’ is anywhere that you have a personal computer, a modem, and a telephone line, satellite dish, or radio link. Dialing into the network turns your computer screen into a window on the world of learning”.

Online learning provides the main form of interactions through email, computer conferencing, online tutorials and forums. Interactions are done both asynchronously and synchronously. Course materials are also provided online. Information, announcement and course registrations are provided online. However face-to-face meetings are also conducted to support online teaching.

Well, please let us know your thoughts and feel free to tell us what you think. Until then, do continue to read more on the following posts to come. Take care, cheers.
