P3r.in is a pioneering concept in its own domain. Although it has a worldwide application, in some geographical regions E-Learning is yet to commence as a common learning Environment. One may have doubts in its effectiveness in terms of impact, evidence of learning, retention of content and learning outcomes.
We believe that the research papers presented here will clear majority of such doubts.
- A research paper by William West et al will demonstrate how E-Learning directly improves teaching/self learning research writing.
- Amita Maxwell at JSBS, SHIATS, Naini , India in her paper elaborates on the increasing impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) and the associated rise in E learning which is now recognized world over for transforming training and learning in the Indian scenario.
- Yet another excellent paper “e-Learning quality: Scale development and validation in Indian context” by Arunkumar Agariya and Deepali Singh tries to establish a reliable and valid e-learning quality measurement scales from the learner as well as faculty perspectives in Indian context.
- In their research paper named “e-Learning Indicators: a Multi-Dimensional Model for planning and evaluating e-Learning Software Solutions”, researchers Bekim Fetaji and Majlinda Fetaji of South east Europe university have given a systematic or a standardized way of planning, comparing and evaluating e-learning projects, their outcomes, and their effectiveness.
- A detailed paper on “Research output in SAARC Countries” is published in Current Science by Ashraf Uddin and Vivek Kumar Singh
An obvious question which comes to the minds of decision makers like deans, or PhD guides is-What and where is the evidence of such an E-Learning?
- A detailed analysis answering this question is provided in Price & Kirkwood’s paper (2010) – “Technology enhanced learning – where’s the evidence?”
