Electronic learning (or eLearning) refers to learning with the aid of online digital resources. This unconventional approach offers learners access to training materials from anywhere, anytime, and at one’s convenience.
If you’re intrigued by the concept of eLearning, let’s look at the most important eLearning trends Re|Mind Virtual Academy employs to make your learning journey as exciting as possible.
1. Interactive Content
In eLearning, interactive content is learning material that involves the active participation of the learners as opposed to just listening, reading, or watching.
Try handing over large chunks of training text to your learners and see what they do with it? Not just the text but it can be visual, audio, or any other content form? At the beginning of the training, it all seems well and good. But as the days of training/learning pass by, your learners lose the ‘first love’ for learning and must fight hard within against their disengagement.
Truly interactive eLearning courses have the power to transform learning and content into meaningful experiences for learners. Interactive courses help learners retain content longer, allowing them to actively process and apply content, and take their learning back to their daily lives.
How we do it
RMVA is the only online digital school that enables the learner to interactively work with text on the screen/real time. The learner is able to make notes (that are stored for later retrieval), use colour highlights to mark text, and generally work with digital text in exactly the same way that they would with 'written text".
2. Video-based Learning
Video-based learning literally refers to learning experiences facilitated through video. Videos encourage multi-sensory learning because they can involve text, moving images, and sound. Using multiple senses to understand a concept allows learners to make more cognitive connections. It encourages them to understand the concepts better and think deeply.
With the pandemic, organizations, small or big, have taken to technology to support their learning completely through eLearning tools. Consequently, Video-based learning has gained immense prominence.
How we do it
RMVA provides the learner the opportunity to become an active participant with the video content. You no longer have to passively just watch video content. You, as the learner, can engage directly with the video with real time activities such as questions, learning paths, notifications, and so forth. RMVA can determine the level and path of the learner's engagement, allowing them to immerse themselves in the video, rather than just let the video take them down an inert, boring, one-dimensional path.
3. Mobile Learning
Mobile learning (m-learning) encapsulates the ability to progress through course content on one’s own personal device. m-learning introduces the power of anytime, anywhere, providing a plethora of benefits to its recipients.
Mobile-friendly methods allow learners to access information in a quickly and easily, able to pick up learning as and when suits them. Mobile learning offers ultimate accessibility and flexibility to learners.
Over the 8 billion population, about 4 billion people use smartphones as per the latest stats why not use that to your advantage and yet we see that most of the time organizations have failed to create a mobile-friendly platform for eLearning for their learners and therefore Mobile Learning is certainly the most underestimated and underexplored eLearning trend by Corporates, Higher Education, and training organisations. Mobile learning is the next generation of training.
How we do it
We create an experience specifically designed for mobile phones, which gives students continuous access to information, materials, and resources. It can provide the best in visual learning content as well as more traditional text-based material.
The Mobile Learning App is fully synchronized with our school’s Course Player to keep your curriculum consistent across the environments easily. Think of it as a single central hub of our course content in which each change is instantly synchronized across all our students’ devices.
We can personalise our push notifications to target a specific segment of learners, teams, or divisions and customize the messaging approach based on the different needs of each group.
The offline video feature of our mobile app enables users to download video content from within the app and watch them anytime they wish, whether they have an internet connection or not!
The mobile app is tablet-friendly, as it will fully function and look beautiful on any Android or iPad tablet device as well.
