Benefits of Tuitionware
"Good teaching is good teaching, no matter how it's done."
The old adage still rings true, and e-Learning brings with it new dimensions in education. Some of the unique features of e-Learning are listed below.
Convenience and Portability
* Courses are accessible on your schedule
* Online learning does not require physical attendance
* Learning is self-paced (not too slow, not too fast)
* You're unbound by time - courses are available 24/7
* You're unbound by place - study at home, work, or on the road
* Read materials online or download them for reading later
* Online learning accommodates your preferences and needs - it's student-centered
* Choose instructor-led or self-study courses
* Skip over material you already know and focus on topics you'd like to learn
* Use the tools best suited to your learning styles
Greater Collaboration and Global Opportunities
* Technology tools make collaboration among students much easier. Since many projects involve collaborative learning, the online environment is far easier (and often more comfortable) to work in since learners don't have to be face-to-face.
* The global learning community is at your fingertips with online learning. The technologies used give online instructional designers the ability to build in tools that take you to resources you may never see in a traditional classroom.
Infrastructure and Quality Application
Tuitionware provides access to and manages a commercially available, best-in-class application. This service is different from Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), which involves the outsourcing of an entire organisational process, such as for example all Human Resource Management or financial activities. It is also different from the various hosting services, which place greater emphasis on management of the network and servers than management of the application.
Software as a Service
Tuitionware services allow customers to access an entire Learning and Content management system without having to make a prior investment in licences, servers, human and other resources. Tuitionware owns the software or has signed a contract with the software supplier offering access to the relevant software.
Tuitionware services are managed from a central location rather than on each institution's infrastructure. Educational institutions can access these applications remotely via the internet.
