E-learning:

Introduction

E-Learning exploits interactive technologies and communication systems to improve the learning experience. It has the potential to transform the way we teach and learn across the board. It can raise standards, and widen participation in lifelong learning. It cannot replace teachers and lecturers, but alongside existing methods it can enhance the quality and reach of their teaching. A click of a mouse button offers unparalleled learning opportunities for any student anywhere. E-learning has the ability to significantly improve learning and learning at all levels.
There are two types of -learning. They are:
Synchronous
Asynchronous

E-Learning is a best alternative that provides suitable opportunity to all such individuals to obtain the desired qualifications or degrees as quality education even without attending any face to face college system in the educational institutions. This offers students with an opportunity to attend virtual classes and lectures. Application are widely practiced in every nook and corner of the world, including Blackboard, Moodle, Open (Linden Labs, Second Life 2009) and Second Life (The Open Simulator Project, 2009) Today, Second Life (SL) has emerged as one of the most popular 3D multi-user virtual reality applications. Around 500 universities and used this learning system.

Background

Organizations and educational institutions need to understand the benefits and limitations of various e-learning techniques and methods for successful e-learning initiatives. There are two types of e-learning. They are:
1. Synchronous
2. Asynchronous

Synchronous

Synchronous e-learning, which is generally facilitated by media such as video conferencing and chatting, has the ability to assist e-learners in learning community development. We claims that every aspect that characterizes “ordinary” media (such as the ability to convey and interpret facial expressions and body language) contributes to psychological excitement. Synchronous communication makes it possible to track the reaction of the receiver to a message, making the receiver more active and motivated to read and respond to the message. Learners respond quickly in synchronous e-learning because they don’t want to interrupt the conversation.

Asynchronous

Asynchronous e-learning, which is generally supported by media such as e-mail and message forums, facilitates working relationships between learners and teachers, even when participants cannot be online simultaneously. Because of their asynchronous existence, many people take online courses mixing education with jobs, family, and other commitments. Asynchronous e-learning allows learners to link at any time to an e-learning environment and access documents or send messages to teachers or peers. When e-learners never meet face to face and teachers rely primarily on asynchronous e-learning, students that feel isolated and not part of teach groups that are necessary for communication and learning.

Current Scenario of Nepal

These days, the education system is being updated with advanced technologies ranging from traditional learning to e-learning, and this is important for learners because it provides the learner with unrestricted access to information with the option of learning. E-learning is the effective tools for teaching and learning these days, as well as the wide adoption of this e-learning strategy by various universities in Nepal. E-learning is the effective tools for teaching and learning these days, as well as the wide adoption of this e-learning strategy by various universities in Nepal. The education system used different digital CDs and DVDs as e-learning. Students can use various learning materials, including internet computers, web-based tools, e-books, blackboard smart boards, projection audio and video, animated objects, etc. In order to assist teaching and learning processes, various higher education institutions or universities in Nepal have brought new learning approaches to online learning as e-learning for students. The learning process has become more independent and some of the approaches available are online or distance learning. Nepal’s two leading universities, Tribhuvan University and Kathmandu University, deliver these learning methods for bachelor and master’s degree in these days. Some of the outside universities also set up open-distance education in Nepal, which is why the e-learning strategy in Nepal is growing rapidly. Midas and khan academy provide education and skill through e-learning. .
Implementation

Own idea of implementation

Education system is upgrading these days with advance technologies that are from conventional learning to E-learning and this is relevant for learner as it is providing flexibility in learning with optional choices for study to the learner with unlimited access of information. E-learning is the effective tools of teaching and learning process these days and different universities of Nepal also broadly adopting this E-learning strategy and offering for distance education or online learning. Here we study the educational situation of rural areas of Nepal comparing to urban areas as well as the barriers of E-learning. The purpose of this paper is to show the changing of learning process from the conventional learning to E-learning in the rapidly changing world and to provide a view of the state of E-learning in Nepal focusing on impact and challenges. It aims to integrate a review of literature to provide a high level comparative view of the state of education system with E-learning.

Plan of the implementation

For the successful implementation we have to provide internet all over the country. In urban areas there is facilities of internet but in rural areas there is no facilities of internet. Due to the lack of cable of connection people are facing internet facilities in rural areas.  The only type of Internet access available was dial-up through telephone line. Dial-up access is also the slowest Internet connection available in the rural area. We have to provide Bandwidth Internet connection in rural areas as well as urban areas. We have some options available when it comes to achieving a high speed broadband Internet connection. Some few possibilities that are worth looking into Satellite Internet, Mobile Broadband, Tethering Hotspot, Long Range Wi-Fi Antenna,  WiMAX, Google Internet Balloons. These options help to establish access to high speed broadband Internet.

Conclusion

E-learning is not just a change of technology. It is part of a redefinition of how we as a species transmit knowledge, skills, and values to younger generations of workers and students. This book makes a few predictions of how e-learning and the functions it serves will continue to develop. Learners will have access to millions or billions of knowledge modules. Some will be Web pages with simple text and graphics. Others may include multimedia simulations. In many fields, e-learning has become the default way to conduct training or to provide education. There are four secrets of e-learning. The first secret is to teach what learners need to learn in the way they most naturally learn. The second secret is to define clear learning objectives. The third secret builds on the first two. It is to focus on the right objectives. The final secret is in the power of testing. The effectiveness of the e-learning depends on the quality and quantity of the applied e-learning materials, the needed time for taking the course and the results at the course end. One of the approaches for improving the personalization in the e-learning process is ensuring access to appropriate e-learning materials, according the individual learning style of the student. The learning style is the way of adoptions and procession of the information. Every person develops preferred and successive behavior and concrete approaches for studying.
Future escalation

E-Learning is the future. Traditional educational approaches like colleges and universities, in addition to corporate training departments, are embracing the digital reality – from using online platforms to leveraging Machine Learning  and AR for training. I can see how Research and Markets believe we will see e-learning triple to $325 Billion by 2025. A trend recently has been e-learning communities. As it turns out, learning out how to interact in a digital community can be beneficial. In fact, other PMCA analysts are mentioned for their work in reviewing online platforms to help you learn another language, learn to code, or train your employees. For Online Employee Training, there is no shortage of platforms and new technologies. Take augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) as one way to engage and train people. VR and AR are growing. At the end of 2017, it turned out that the PSVR by Sony sold about $500 million worth of units. Farmers Insurance has used it to simulate different situations where employees would have to size up how much different damages would cost.
