Dinesh Elango, Kitikorn Dowpiset, Titikorn Chukkaew

Show Abstract

Abstract:

E-Learning is a platform that is being used for training in the digital era. Many researchers try to identify the different influencing factors that affect E-Learning outcomes. The six (6) important factors, which appear in the literature, included Learner-Learner Interaction, Learner-Instructor Interaction, Learner-Content Interaction, Perceived Ease of Use and Readiness Factors, will be examined in this research.  The respondents, numbering 205 pilots of Thai Airways who are using E-Learning for the pilot’s ground school. However, only 200 are valid. The Pearson’s Correlation results showed that all independent and dependent variables have positive relationship with each other. The results of multiple linear regression showed that three significant variables impact on E-Learning outcomes, which are Learner-Learner Interaction, Learner-Content Interaction and Readiness Factors.But three other variables, Learner-Instructor Interaction, Perceived Ease of Use and Computer Self-Efficacy,do not show a significant effect.

Pillai Anita Radhakrishnan

Show Abstract

Abstract:

 

Contemporary management education aims to equip students with knowledge, skills and competencies to deal with real time business challenges. At present there is considerable interest in how e-learning can be harnessed to enhance the efficacy of management education. Management institutions allocate substantial amount of resources for e-learning systems. Based on extensive literature review this paper identifies the dimensions that contribute to the institutional factor. The objective of this study is to examine the influence of institutional factor on service quality in e-learning and its influence on perceived value by the management students. The framework proposed is tested using structural equation modeling. The model examines the effect of institutional factors on E-S-QUAL sub-dimensions of efficiency, system availability, fulfillment and privacy. Further these E-S-QUAL sub-dimensions influences on perceived value are tested in the context of Indian management education. The main finding of this study is that institutional factors influence e-learning adoption and institutional factors have a direct impact on the service quality dimensions. Further service quality dimensions have a significant impact on perceived value among students using e-learning in management education.

Subrahmanian Muthuraman

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Higher Educational institutions are increasingly using blended learning strategies to deliver course content to
diverse and dispersed student cohorts. Blended learning is a mixture of online and face-to-face learning. In the
literature, blended learning is also known as ‘hybrid learning’ or the ‘flipped classroom’. The reason for this
happening is that it creates a potential to provide flexible access to content and instruction at any time, from any
place and cost-effectiveness for HEIs. Implementing a blended learning program requires coherent and
coordinated planning to be successful. The literature suggests that continuous evaluation of blended learning
programs is essential. With this view, this paper is focus on assessing the quality of blended learning education
at Arab Open University, Oman Branch. The success of blended learning programs inevitably relies on students’
equitable access to technology. Ozkan & Koseler in 2009 developed a Hexagonal E-Learning Assessment
Model (HELAM) a conceptual e-learning success evaluation model which is also validated by the authors for
assessing learner satisfaction with both internet-based LMS and blended learning. It contains six dimensions
such as Supportive factors, Learner perspective, Instructor attitudes, System quality, Information (content)
quality and Service quality. This research, is trying to explore the importance of each dimensions of HELAM
which directly affects the overall success and learner’s satisfaction at AOU, Oman. HELAM, focusing on
understanding the learners’ perceived satisfaction from an e-learning environment. The data has been gathered
from survey questions, informal interviews from the students of AOU, Oman Branch. Descriptive analysis has
been used to analyze the data. Blended learning in HEIs programs improved retention and correlated with
improvements in students’ attainment. It also improves attendance at face-to-face classes, in self-report
measures of student satisfaction, and in examination performance. The students’ attitude toward blended
learning is positive. Effective blended learning is in making students active learners in their area of
specialization. The learning management system definitely aids blended learning.

QUESTION ANSWERING SYSTEM FOR DISTANCE EDUCATION USING E-LEARNING AND COLLABORATING LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS IN INDIA

Karpagam K, Saradha A

Show Abstract

Abstract:

Today, e-learning in education & distance learning is the most popular way to gain knowledge and share
information between learning communities. In India, formal learning phase is hard-hitting to lower middle class
people due to economic background. To resolve this issue and improve the life standards of people, distance
education based on e-learning and collaborative learning paves a way. Information retrieval domain supports in
this to display the specific answer for the user query which makes the learning easier. Question answering
system returns sentence segment rather than returning list of documents. We present a mobile based question
answering system that serves as a personal assistant in learning and providing information about computers,
software and hardware, book reviews using natural language.QA models accept the query in natural language,
analyze and compare it with information stored in the knowledge base. It displays the optimized response
snippets which improves the efficiency of e-learning retrieval responses. The proposed system was developed to
help the users to learn the subject knowledge at times of examination, technical interview and share answer for
other users. This paper proposes a technique to find the type of question that in turn leads to a correct answer.
The knowledge base created from the benchmark dataset such as Amazon Book Reviews, 20newsgroup, Quora,
and Yahoo! Answer. This paper also focuses on the Indian education scenario, eLearning tools for easy learning
through content preparation and presentation. The system interface has been evaluated using standard metrics
such as Precision, Fetch, F1 Score, Inverse Precision, and Inverse Recall for the appropriate relevant response.
