E-Learning came as result of the emergence of Web 2.0. The conventional eLearning system was delivered to students by using instructional packets and assignments that were then evaluated by teachers/professors. Mobile Learning is more convenient therefore BITSPEC has the software and IT platform that offers both types of learning.
E-Learning is increasing the emphasis on social learning and use of social software such as blogs, podcasts, and virtual worlds, Forums and Social medial. BITSPEC encourages students to become self-directed learners as capable people are more likely to be able to deal effectively with the changing environment in which they live by possessing an ‘all round’ capacity centred on self-efficacy, knowing how to learn, creativity, the ability to use competencies in different situations and working with others.
E-Learning 2.0 and 3.0 assumes that knowledge (as meaning and understanding) are socially constructed. Although eLearning has a heuristic characteristic, due to our social engagement, we create a different environment that goes beyond the Lean Six Sigma hard skills and knowledge. We try to enlarge the cognitive base through human experiences.
Learning takes place through conversations initiated by students about the content and grounded interaction regarding problems and actions while they can learn from each other. We believe in eLearning as 21st and 22nd Century ways to acquire exceptional training and insights across the world by developing meta cognitive thinking, collaborative skills, and research skills.
New Leaders need to develop at personal level the creative competence while from an organizational level, they will need to learn on how to coordinate and channel the postings within span of control. It only happens with Web 4.0, therefore, those who learn eLearning 4.0 will create a better world, hopefully.
We encourage discussions and interactions of the students who are taking our courses as a way to network, enlarge knowledge and socialize.
BITSPEC supports the interaction between students while ensures that our accredited trainers and forum moderators are fully engaged to answer the questions.
