E-Learning came as result of the emergence of Web 2.0. The conventional eLearning system was delivered to students by using instructional packets and assignments that were then evaluated by teachers/professors. Web 3.0 introduced Mobile Learning which is more convenient, hence BITSPEC has adapted the software and IT platform to offer both types of learning.
E-Learning 3.0 places the emphasis on social learning and use of social interaction through blogs, podcasts, virtual worlds, Forums and Social medial. BITSPEC encourages students to become self-directed learners, as capable people are more likely to be able to deal effectively with the changing environment, knowing how to learn and have the ability to use their competencies in difficult situations while working with others.
E-Learning 2.0 and 3.0 assumes that knowledge (as meaning and understanding) are socially constructed. Although eLearning has a heuristic characteristic, due to our social engagement, we create a different environment that goes beyond the Lean Six Sigma hard skills and knowledge. We aim to enlarge the cognitive foundation through human experiences.
Learning takes place through conversations initiated by students about the content and grounded interaction regarding theoretical concepts, problems, while learning from each other. We believe in eLearning as 21st century way to acquire anywhere in the world exceptional training, in-depth subject insight, by developing meta cognitive thinking, collaborative and research skills. We encourage discussions and interactions among students who are taking our courses, while ensuring that our accredited trainers and forum moderators are fully engaged to answer the questions.
New Leaders need to develop their own personal creative competence, while from an organizational point of view, they will need to learn how to coordinate, channel the information and knowledge according with personal and organization goals. This is the future of eLearning with Web 4.0, when use of artificial intelligence and machine learning technology is fully implemented. We do not have it yet, but we are working on it!
