The time when acquiring formal education demanded physical facilities, where both students, teachers and administrative staff would meet, is long gone. For about a decade now, learning online has gathered incredible pace in many organisations, from academia to corporations of all sizes.
This new approach significantly reduces the total cost of deployment, while making the whole process more effective at many levels. An e-learning system can be accessed from anywhere, any time and on all sorts of devices. Users are not committed to strict schedules and may quickly engage in the exchange of knowledge. If a student has a pressing question at 3 AM, there's no need to wait until the next class to expose it. Likewise, teachers enjoy the freedom to communicate with the alumni or their peers whenever they see fit. Nobody is restrained by a rigid space-time continuum. The only rules are those set by the course organisers.
This doesn't imply a degradation in pedagogical standards. Contrary to popular belief, e-learning can yield extremely reliable evaluation. There are several techniques to prevent cheating more effectively than in a spacious classroom under strict surveillance.
Our team has been dealing with the most acclaimed e-learning platforms for about 8 years now in a variety of situations. We have worked closely with health professionals and scholars to bring about featureful, yet intuitive interfaces built on the top of Moodle and eFront, the two leading open source Learning Management Systems (LMS).
If you are looking forward to set up a course, we will be more tha glad to offer a sound assessment to start with.
