Aspects of digital content, creation and production

Digital learning materials (e-learning materials) are
formed from a variety of resources such as lecture notes, presentations,
videos, quizzes, and demonstrations.

Lecture notes

Lecture notes refer to the points presented by the teacher during
the teaching and learning which are prepared and prepared before the teaching
and also sent to the students in the form of teaching references. 

These
notices are very comprehensive and clear. These tips make it easier to remember
and revise a topic. During the lecture, students can write important points or
teachers can use technology to convey notes to students in the form of images
or PDFs, or audio material (podcasts).

PowerPoint Presentation

This is a very effective slide presentation that is often
shown in the classroom with the help of a projector. In addition, teaching
materials can be easily presented online through PowerPoint. 

The content of the
presentation of the article can be done through PowerPoint in the form of
Bullet Points, Images, Audio, Animation as well as Videos. 

It is an effective
means of teaching and learning. This method is very comfortable for the teacher
as the content is almost present on the screen in the form of points, shapes,
maps, sketches, pictures, sounds. 

Due to which the interpretation of the
subject in a short time becomes clear, attractive, common sense, and easy.
Students also enjoy this way of teaching. Unlike traditional teaching in the PowerPoint method, there is no need to draw sketches and pictures on the board with
chalk due to which the teaching functions are performed very fast and
efficiently. 

PowerPoint presentation is also called PPT. PPT (content-based
slides) can also be shared with students. PPTs can be modified or rearranged or
rearranged according to the needs of the students.

Educational videos

Videos are a great source of knowledge. It includes all
kinds of audio and video content with text and narration. They can be
downloaded, viewed by students to understand the concepts, replayed thirteen
times, and even repeated. Making videos is a relatively difficult and tedious
process compared to other online teaching materials. 

There is no doubt that
educational videos are one of the most interesting and engaging educational
resources. Intelligent, average, weak, stupid students of all kinds love
educational videos. According to modern trends, the use of videos in the
classroom has increased rapidly. There is a great need to make educational
videos in all disciplines and fields related to education. There is a strong
possibility that demand will increase further in the coming days.

Quiz

Quizzes are often used as an assessment tool in teaching.
Students are given multiple-answer questions (multiple-answer, multiple-choice)
whose answers are pre-programmed for self-examination. Due to which the work of
assessment and evaluation is done very fast. Nowadays there are various
software resources like Google Software Forms etc. Just do the automatic
testing. Student results also appear automatically on a computer screen or
smartphone.

Collection of questions

Explanatory set questions can be assigned to test students’
analytical abilities. Students are given a variety of descriptive questions
based on Numerical Questions, Design (Sketching), Drafting, Drawing, etc. By
adopting the above method and examining the students’ answers, their abilities
can be assessed. This is the most popular and simple traditional method of
testing.

Practical demonstrations

Practical performance education is very important,
especially in science, engineering, and medicine. Practical work can be shown to
some extent online. It largely depends on the nature of online education.
Simple Practicals can be reported and recorded online. In addition, they can be
webcast live or by editing after recording. This task can be easily learned
with the help of software. Students can practice on the computer by watching
videos of practical work at home.

There are many online simulation-based laboratories that
allow students to visualize the layout of the labs. Through this artificial
laboratory, students can perform virtual layout and organization and also
observe their own results. Analysis can be done at the end. 

The number of such laboratories is very high in developing
and developed countries. These laboratories are very interactive. Even beyond
the curriculum, students can have a lot of formal experiences. 

There are also
several virtual physical laboratories. It consists of a one-stop laboratory
connected to a computer and the Internet. Where real experience or practical
work is done. These virtual labs can be used by registered remote students
(users, users).

Users can not only control all the parameters of the setup
(set scales) but also perform the physical work remotely as well as view the
actual setup. You can also measure the required amount (parameters). Users can
take note of the readings (measurements), analyze them manually or with the
help of inbuilt software downloaded on the computer. These experiences seem
very real.

Direct vs. provision of recorded education

Online education can be provided in two ways, for example

(1) Direct ie synchronous, time to perform work

(2) Recorded Asynchronous

Both methods have their strengths and weaknesses

Live or Synchronous

Live recordings can be webcast to students via the computer
and the Internet via the teacher. The great advantage of direct, synchronous
education is that it provides instant interaction between teacher and student.
Apps are available for live learning sessions on various online platforms,
including Zoom, GeoMate, GoogleMate, Thames, WebX, and more. 

Facebook Live and
YouTube Live can be used for a large number of participants. Direct communication
between the two is possible only through text message (chat). Sometimes the
number of listeners (participants) is also uncertain. Both teachers and
students sometimes face network problems. Teachers also need to have the
technical skills to use technology.

Offline, recorded Asynchronous

In this process, educational videos are first created and
then edited and stored. Recorded videos and other acquired, testing, and
diagnostic content across different platforms such as Moodle, Teachable,
YouTube, Google, Google Drive, Google Classroom ) Etc. are provided. Links are
sent to students through social media such as WhatsApp, Telegram, or Email. 

Students can enroll online for private courses and private discussions. The
biggest advantage of these asynchronous courses is that they are self-paced (in
which students can learn at their own pace). As a result, students are not
under any pressure to compete with their peers and they can use the material at
the right time according to their acquired speed.

Recorded videos can be paused and viewed again, thirteen
times or more. Video speeds can be adjusted according to the student’s learning
and absorption. Parts of the video that students have already learned and read
can be viewed further. 

These videos can be used year after year for new
learners (from generation to generation). With this method of acquisition, the
students do not get scared and upset by the questions of the teachers such as
what they understood, etc., and also avoid embarrassment and regret. Such videos
are very useful and encouraging for students with special needs such as autism,
dyslexia. In addition, needy students can study during the day while working at
night or in their spare time. There are many learning-based methods available
in this system that can be used to properly manage, analyze, evaluate and
monitor students’ learning activities. In addition, they may be provided with a
certificate.

 

Using Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), various
educational companies such as Udemy, Coursera, and major universities around the
world are offering various certificate courses, diplomas, and degree courses.
All these are run in the form of Massive (open online courses). 

The feedback
received during such teaching is used to improve the system. Local madrassas
are now competing with global madrassas by providing recorded lessons and
videos online. Offline (Asynchronous) learning methods are very important
today.

Summary Conversation

Today there are various means, resources, and methods of
teaching and learning available. Teachers can create their own courses and
present them globally through technology. By making better use of this resource
to present their teaching skills, teachers can not only prove their mettle but
also earn money.
