Traditional distance learning programs have low completion rates as students are left to learn on their own with a feeling of isolation. Today’s online teachers need a method to communicate to students in an effective and pedagogically sound manner, one-on-one or one-to-many. Studies show that the ideal solution is a blended learning model with asynchronous and synchronous interaction. Electa provides you with both synchronous and asynchronous training tools.
With Electa Live virtual classroom, you can easily and effectively host web-based meetings, significantly reducing teleconferencing and travel costs and decreasing time away from job. Teachers and administrators save significant amounts per year by not having to travel long distances for meetings and professional development. And this does not take into effect the elimination of the cost of substitute teachers for those on the road.
Collaboration at a distance connects students from different locations and cultures to enhance the learning experience. Students from United Kingdom collaborated with students from China in a course about international architecture. Whether provided by instructors or peers, tutoring via Electa Live offers students an opportunity to work one-on-one to get questions answered or receive help with homework or other assignments. Sessions can be scheduled, or students can drop into to an existing virtual room to connect with the tutor.
