Online teaching is getting popularity.

Have you ever teach/learn online?

I think it would be great pleasure for students if someone like a teacher who teaches online.
Bikerman
LOL...you have several teachers here who do a bit Smile

Use Moodle for online learning content management.
Moodle is super and the best Very Happy
shkhanal
this is going to be the tomorrow's method of teaching. Its effective and interesting too! There are lots of resouces and divers media are possible to apply for teaching purpose.

our school is trying to use moodle to integrate out teaching so it can happen at home as well but the teachers don't want to use it so it properly so its a fail.

i tried taking one of the online courses, IT training, but found that its not worth it. Quality is so low, and you just missing that care factor.

isnt that why people do online courses so they dont have to go to school and waste time and money on transport and dont really care about the care factor becuase they can learn without

There are several awesome sources of free online teaching available. Unfortunately you do not earn any academic credit, but you can still learn quite a bit.

Number one: MIT has put most of their classes online: ocw.mit.edu

Number two: Itunes University. Many universities have uploaded class lectures to Itunes for free downloading.

Number three: good ol' YouTube! There are many videos of college lectures on YouTube. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you can find!

Thanks for ALL these information.

It may be seen as an innovative measure...!! But i don't think that online teaching or online learning would be as much as meaningful as the normal class...!! The care factor would be missing...!! Sufficient attention can't be paid on students...!!

These are my opinions... Hope atleast someone will join me..!!

Well, I am also agree with you. Plus here the competition mood will not come properly which is really important for studies. I think regular class is better than online teaching. But we can get extra benefits some times. Like in my country their is no forex specialist. It is a new concept there. But I can participate in forex seminars in online taken by forex experts.

I found that there are lot of language tuators offering online tution
slive
I think it's very useful.
Ryox
I'm going to try it and see if it's any good use to me, education purposes. Smile
shkhanal
It will take some time till it is matured for these problems appeared to be resolved. Anyway, ultimately online education stands, there's no doubt.
Bluedoll
Not that much but usually it is a tutorial/video. One thing I like about it is you can 'ask' over and over again by clicking on the play button without the teacher getting annoyed with you.

OUR STUDENTS WERE HERE Wink))))))))) IS THIS FORUM FINISHED ALREADY? CAN I BUILD MY SITE NOW. POR FAVOR?
biljap
I used to prepare mu exams using only the material that I found online. I was using a lot of e-books, some notes that other students form all over the world shared… And, off course, I used forums because there were already many questions answered to the problems I’ve had. It was actually very successful. It is a little harder because you have to search for material, and you never know if that one is the one you will need for the exam, but I liked this way of studying anyway.
At some point, you do need someone to come to you and tell you if you’re doing something wrong…

I found a site buddyschool which i think is doing a good job

An online teaching/ video lecture may be an aiding tool to understand the subject better. However it cannot substitute the traditional classroom teaching in any way. Thats why the distance education courses are never recognized as equivalent to a regular degree course.
angfrayle
For quick courses, I'd say online learning is good. But learning offline and in a proper school is still preferable to me. Going to school and interacting face-to-face with teachers and other students gives one somthing that online education cannot: life experiences.
Bluedoll
I have not done anything formal but certainly would consider it. I've done little short things like tutorials and can say that experience has been good because I was able to get the instructor to repeat what they said (video) many times without being interruptive or annoying. Lack of real contact though isn't so great sometimes.

A question here!

I know there are complete online courses now but if we were to generalize - isn't online used everywhere even in schools so that the difference between going to an institution or being at home as far as the work is concerned sometimes depending on the work of course, if it involves computers which so many thing do is online anyway?

Did that make sense?

In other words some courses are online most or some of the time anyway regardless where you are? I look in some classrooms and the teacher is not even teaching conventualy. All the students are on computer. Is that not true?

yes definitly i love online teaching

Unless it is a face to face online teaching (through webcam and other equipments), what you get is a general purpose learning material. You cannot have your customized query solved instantly by an online teacher unless the session is interactive.

It depends on the school/college and the course.
If you take me as an example, I'm just about to go into an A level (A2) IT group. All the lesson materials are in our on-line LMS (Learning Management System called Moodle). Now I had to put the materials there to start with, so don't get the idea that this makes the lecturer's job easy, but yes, my aim is for my students to be able, if necessary, to more or less complete the course away from the college. I don't want them to do that, because there is still a lot of stuff I do in the classroom which requires face to face communication, but the facilities on the learning management system allow interactivity (there is a chat system and a forum system).
The main things my students would miss by 'distance' learning are:
a) My pleasant personality Smile
b) Social interaction with peers and the chance to do interesting group work
c) My ad-hoc changes to the schemes of work and lesson plans. Take today as an example. I've taught two first year A level groups (AS) this morning. The topic is 'Factors affecting the use of ICT'. The lesson I normally give considers some economic barriers in Rwanda and other African countries to the use of IT, and discusses the legal constraints on ICT use here in the UK (Data Protection Act, Copyright etc). It's a pretty good lesson, but not exactly riveting.

The other day I watched the BBC Dimbleby Lecture. It was given by the author Terry Pratchett on the subject of assisted suicide (which is illegal here in the UK). Pratchett - who has been diagnosed with Altzheimer's disease - wants to change the law and delivered a speech which was funny, serious, tragic and thought provoking in equal measures (actually it was read by Tony Robinson because one of the effects of the disease is that Pratchett cannot easily read from a prompt - even though otherwise you would think he was fine).

I junked my lesson plan on the spot, and showed this video to my groups this morning. WOW. We had some of the best discussions I think I have ever had with students and I KNOW that they will remember this when the exam comes around in a few months and the essay question asks them to discuss the legal issues surrounding ICT. I know that they will all be able to deliver an essay on how, as IT lets us live longer, dementia and other illnesses will become an increasing issue. First rate!
Those studying at home would have missed this little gem.

I always learn by myself online.
PureReborn
I think it's great for some subjects and horrible for others. Overall it's a good place to get started and some basic concepts to be introduced. But once you get into the details, you really need inperson interaction with an expert.

An example would be programming. You can learn all the basics concepts and language details from a website or online video. But for the really indepth stuff like parsing, compliers, real time/concurrence, you need to work with an expert.

Online teaching is good

Guys this idea is sucessfull??? What you think. According to me this idea is 100% fail. We can take idea 1 or 2 chapter but whole courses never possible Sad
Bikerman
It works very successfully in the UK. We have a whole 'virtual' university - the Open University - which has been running for 40 years and offers courses up to post-graduate level.
Most of the courses will have some individual tutorial support from a professor/lecturer but the majority of the course is studied on-line with an accompanying documentation set.
I am a HUGE supporter.

When you steal quotes from other sources, you should provide a citation to the original author. Otherwise it's called plagiarism.

Hi All,

I have recently started taking online tution in Physics.

So far as good. Its work almost like online voice chat, with white-board support and
'TeamViewer' to show the teaching contents.

Am teaching a student from north part of country, where I am at southern end.
jajarvin
I have taken four online courses. They all were very useful for me.

There is no substitution for class room teaching. Seeing the teacher physically in front , boost up the confidence. Also the bonding between teacher and student is essential for study. Online material can be taken as a learning aid just like the reference book.
DesquisiadoMoral
Online teaching can be good in some aspect. For example if we're in home and we need some explanation can be useful. But all of time students can't show respect because that figure had been replaced by ''a machine''.

I did not have any chance to learn online but my kids they are learning online and this experience is excellent.Before i was scared that how they will read and how the teacher will teach to them but excellent they are gaining a lot.

Hi,
Parents prefer online teaching, since they get comfort and safety of home
at the same time education is going on in smooth manner

Every thing is going online now a days.
I think this is good idea.

Online lessons sounds nice and "technology" Smile
But IRL it's a worst time wasting.
Sorry

You are simply wrong. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are being developed by top universities and are already delivering serious courses at all levels up to and including post-doctorate. I have studied one such course and found it excellent (as well as completely free). As a lecturer myself I know a little of which I speak....

It is a brilliant time to sign-up for a course because many top universities - particularly in the US - are offering MOOCs free of charge to attract users whilst they develop the course materials. There are a host of courses available free of charge - Google is your friend here. *

Some of the courses are very high quality with bespoke video/audio lecture materials, messageboard communities with tutors/lecturers as well as peer support, assignments which are submitted on-line, and even video tutorial sessions.
The commercial value of some of these courses would easily be several thousand pounds (UK) so what is not to like when you can study for free?

* Here is a starting point for the lazy....

I do not have any experience of on-line study. It looks it good because it is going popular now a days
