As my understanding, the first reason is served for students who live too far from the school or they can not go away from their places. In this way they can learn in online setting which is work just fine for them. students can still have real conversation and face to face options with teachers and classmate through web cam. Most of online class allow students review the materials they have learned so that they can follow up the contents and be in the same front row as students from regular classroom style. Online students can also post their questions and comments through the discussion board and read others' there.
There are so many online classes offered in almost university now. Students can have more option to earn the degree through it, however it is still a question that online degree can be viewed as equal to degree from traditional schools. It all depends on what kind of online school we go to. An online program that is run through a traditional, regionally accredited school is the best. If you choose a school that is only online, make sure that it is accredited by the proper regional association.
So as an Instructional designer, we should pay more attention to design particular online course in order to keep it as effective as the regular one.
Instructional designers' jobs are in the building process: assessing, extracting, molding, refining, and revised the content for learning results. When a Subject Matter Expert finishes writing a course module, the Instructional Designer takes place. The building stage usually takes months. Each activity is part of the overall program design and must go through test and revised process before lunch it. In a well-designed training program, nothing is accidental, everything is on purpose. The "ID" identifies learning missions and make sure that learners get knowledge and take them into practice.
The multimedia revolution brings chance to improve the effective of training. For instance, distance e-learning programs can save cost in travel, space allocation, salaries, and time consuming. As a result, there's an opportunity to swap from formerly unstable classroom programs into something well designed that delivers the learning objectives and the answer is e-learning.
The importance of instructional design in traditional training development is even more critical when multimedia is involved. So Instructional designers need to pay more attention when they design the program because the multimedia training product now must serve as both content and instructor.
Collaborative of EPSS make our works a lot easier than in the past, the program can adapt to support the performance of individual, a team and the whole company.
I always use one type of EPSS which is Microsoft office especially word and excel to run the document when I worked for the company in my country. Once I created my own template of the certain document. I can easily use it for the next document without to restart creating the whole document over.
To work as a team, certain EPSS program are installed on local network which the member in the group can share their work and make group conference to perform the given task. EPSS let member share the work, post articles, make comment to each other or discuss the issues within the system which allow all group member to see, edit and erase the information in the program.
In the large organization, EPSS are programmed into the organization’s network. For example, most of fine restaurants use touch screen menu system to place orders from customers included dining area, take out and delivery. It also can check available seat, edit and print bill with the name of the server, date and time be shown in the receipt. It can link to every screen in the restaurant.
Being a leader requires a lot of effort, experience and skill, but being a manager is easier than that, all we need to do is perform tasks according to the plan. In the case, we can say that not every manager can become leader.
I used to work in the Japanese Trading company in
According to the Hersey, leadership involves 3 interrelated elements (cognitive, behavioral and process skills) which I think he lacked a characteristic of the process skills in term of he use solid way to supervise and communicate with his employees, he always yell at them when they made mistake without investigate what real problem was. He had a bias toward his female staff about work. And most of all, according to his Japanese working style, he made the staffs work 10 hours a day without over time paid. Thus, his staffs never respect him at all and most of them refuse to work for him in the next project.
