Kakojan College E-learning
MESSAGE FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
AN INITIATIVE TOWARDS INTRODUCTION OF E-LEARNING
A learning system based on formalised teaching but with the help of electronic resources is known as E-learning. E-learning, or electronic learning, is the delivery of learning and training through digital resources. E-learning can be carried out via the consumption of videos, PDF documents, slide-shows and word documents. Although E-learning is based on formalized learning, it is provided through electronic devices such as computers, tablets and even cellular phones that are connected to the internet. This makes it easy for users to learn anytime, anywhere, with few, if any, restrictions.
E-learning can also be termed as a network enabled transfer of skills and knowledge, and the delivery of education is made to a large number of recipients at the same or different times. Earlier, it was not accepted wholeheartedly as it was assumed that this system lacked the human element required in learning.
Online courses are often provided by Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and allow learning material to be delivered at a steady rate, organized into sections and chunks to make it easier for the learner.
Basically, eLearning is training, learning, or education delivered online through a computer or any other digital device.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, educational institutions were shut down all over the world, which impacted the students and caused a massive disruption of the education system. The unprecedented situation of the pandemic has generated radical transformations of the education system, forcing teachers as well as students to adapt in a short time to new social conditions and to the online learning process. In the recent time, E-learning has become the mandatory component of all educational institutions like schools, colleges and universities in and around the world.
Keeping in view of the above scenario, Kakojan College, Jorhat, Assam is launching an E-learning platform for the benefit of the students. This is an initiative of the institution to bridge the gap in the regular classroom teaching which has been affected badly during this pandemic and also giving an opportunity to the students to step into the digital world.
