Distance Learning in Developing Countries: Is Anyone Measuring Cost-Benefits? - 1 views

  •  
    Very interesting "counter" to the growing trend of e-learning in developing countries.

    This article takes a brief, sober look at Distance Learning in the context of developing countries. For those who view education as the most important priority for the world's poorest countries, Distance Learning is perhaps the most significant method for accomplishing a miraculous, leapfrogging transformation. Are courses administered at distance expensive compared to "traditional" ones? What is the cost per student for an on-line MBA, versus one taught face to face with an instructor?

e-Learning in Developing Countries: Suggesting a Methodology for Enabling Computer-Aide... - 2 views

  •  
    Traditional education has shifted towards new methods of teaching and learning through the proliferation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The continuous advances in technology enable the realisation of a more distributed structure of knowledge transfer. This becomes critically important for developing countries that lack the resources and infrastructure for implementing cutting-edge education practices. The two main themes of technology in education for developing countries focus either on aspects of technological support for traditional methods and localised processes, or on the investigation of how such technologies may assist distance learning. Commonly such efforts are threefold, relating to content delivery, assessment and provision of feedback. This paper focuses on issues regarding the implementation of e-learning in developing countries and particularly those aspects of Computer-Aided Assessment (CAA) that could be tailored to satisfy the needs of a limited educational infrastructure. The primary contribution of this paper is a proposed methodology for supporting both formative and summative CAA.

Although self-paced learning and individualized learning have essentially the same meaning, there are some subtle differences. In self-paced learning, the learner controls the pace of the learning process.

    This e-database is a must have for instructors who have virtual students living in different countries. The database contains valuable intercultural information on appropriate and inappropriate etiquette (or netiquette) including: Protocol (greetings, salutations, titles,) #Cultural Overview (cultural origins, demographics, etc.) different cognitive or learning styles (thought processes, behaviors and beliefs). These important sensitivities should be considered when creating an effective virtual multicultural classroom.
