How Does KPC Deliver e-Learning?
In past times, E-Learning frequently meant correspondence courses - you receive and send in your lessons by mail, eventually receiving feedback using the same method. While correspondence courses are still viable, in current days distance delivery most often happens electronically, using Internet resources.Hence, the changeover from "E-Learning" over most of this site to e-Learning.
We primarily use the following delivery methods:
The Blackboard 8 (Bb 8) learning management system provides virtual course space for web-based course content and interaction between instructor and students. All KPC courses have a space in Blackboard, called a "shell." Every KPC course has the syllabus and course evaluations available in the Blackboard shell.
Elluminate Live!, or eLive, provides an internet-based virtual classroom for students and instructors to meet at the same time. Some courses are enhanced with eLive sessions, while others are taught using eLive as the primary instructional venue.
Internet video is a third mechanism for delivering distance instruction. Using this method, students gather in classrooms on separate campuses and engage in interactive, video-based classes with instructors on a different campus.
While the above list represents our primary delivery systems, distance delivered courses frequently incorporate additional technologies including audio conferencing, podcasting, video, audio, and an enormous variety of web sites.
