“Engineering education opens up more than just engineering. It opens up way to tackle problems and communicate in a very universal way”. For the past few years, we are aware how computer revolution has rapidly changed the way world works. Developments in automobiles, electronic components, computers, robotics etc have all made human life easier. I believe that the field of Computer Engineering is the epicentre of all these developments.
However, in consequent years, the versatility and facile nature of computers made it even more interesting and really left me spellbound and enthralled. This solidified my interest in computer science and exposed me to the enormous potential of this developing field. As the depth of studying about computers increased, it helped me widen my background in various concepts. I also paid special attention to vital subjects like computer networks, design and analysis pf algorithms, programming languages and Unix shell programming since I would deal with these in my professional life. I also have a special interest in cloud computing, since it is the rising technology of this generation.
The development of the Digital Repository is related to the studies of various researchers. Development of technologies has huge effect in education. In the evolution of the technology, education develops and increases its scope that gives people huge resources of acquiring knowledge. This situations happens to change the perspective of educators to develop a quality education that will promote the development of the learning process that will enhance and improve the acquisition of knowledge of the student. In other word, computers are good aid for instruction, since it enhances the learning outcomes.
In fact, today, the students are more and more surrounded by technology such as the internet, computers, tablets, cellphones and many more, so it is acceptable to expect that media techniques would be incorporated into e-learning modules (Violante & Vezzetti, 2013). As technology has been evolving throughout the years, computer-assisted learning is a stepping stone for being cost-effective and accessible. Thus, in a recent study by George et al. (2014), adapting computer-assisted learning may be very costly at first, but in the end it is said that it would be advantageous for obtaining the investments on the computer-assisted learning program in terms of health gains and lives that are saved. Nevertheless, this could be a stepping-stone for the researchers to be able to give a computer-assisted learning program that would dramatically increase the confidence and decrease the anxiety of student nurses regarding the improvement of their clinical
With the use of advancement in technology, digital learning tools are used by most universities in order to establish a good quality of education among the students. Gilhespy (2011) states that, “The rapid innovation and turnover of forms of technology has energized a number of educators to try to embrace what appears to be a host of new opportunities to support existing methods of teaching and learning, or to reconfigure the teaching and learning process in such a way that traditional forms of delivery are
These three types of interaction are believed to develop effective teaching (Moore & Kearsley, 2005). The latter two generations were characterized by using both methods of communication, synchronous and asynchronous. In 1992, online virtual classes started. This is considered the fastest growing method of education. This generation created more chances for interaction and collaboration in the learning process (Moore & Kearsley, 2005).
The rapid growth of technologies and wide availability of the internet in various place have encouraged higher institution in Malaysia to start incorporate e-learning into their educational system. Based on survey in 2004, among the Asia Pacific region,the number of Internet users in Malaysia has increased to 8,187,00 from 6,500,00 in 2002. (Jaring,2004). E-learning started implementing in universities level when Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 1997 used it as tools for lecturers post their class schedules, course outlines, and lecturer notes for the students online. In the following years,1998, Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNITAR) was setting up as a virtual university.
In the modern era, many inventions are happening in the world, due to technology. The invention of internet is one them and very big and important search. The internet is using on the big level for many websites, apps and media such as, google to search, social media, GPA, on smartphones and many more. These are using very much in the today’s world. The internet are using mostly by the new generation and mostly for fun also study.
Modern technological innovations are an inevitable part of our everyday lives and in many situations they have taken their permanent roles in activities, which cannot be imagined without them nowadays.We live in a society where technology has taken up many of the responsibilities which we had to face on our own and this fact has given us the ease in exploring newer concepts which were unimaginable because of the barriers certain tasks have been creating, the same now being replaced by the computers, smartphones and so on. When it comes to education, these innovations are slowly becoming part of the educational process and in some educational systems they have replaced many of the old approaches for a more efficient educational experience. Considering the social context and the benefits that can be gained from the modern technological innovations, I believe they should become a crucial part of the teaching process, as they do bring a more efficient educational experience and a more relevant and authentic context, especially to the younger generations. One of the facts that needs to be considered, when asking whether or not technology should be more incorporated in the educational process, is that younger generations have incorporated the modern technological innovations in their everyday lives to such an extent that they cannot imagine a day without them. Considering this, education should indeed introduce more technology in the classrooms as this would mean a more
E-Learning or in other words, Web –based learning has revolutionised and transformed the sphere of Education, it has not only upgraded it but taken it to the highest level one can ever imagine. Now a person sitting anywhere in the world can get to know about everything happening in the world. There lies a number of differences between the traditional mode of learning and E-learning or web-based learning. For example, in the formal or traditional mode of learning, only a group of experts or teachers in a particular institute can impart the knowledge required for the development of a child, while in the latter scenario, students get the guidance, or in other words, get an opportunity to come in contact with the teachers, experts and professionals of all over the world which opens up a vast world of knowledge, which a student never thought to have a taste of. This has been made possible only because of
