Editorial Reviews

Product Description

We are just beginning to harness the power of the internet for the delivery and management of education. Even without a clear demonstration that e-learning is superior to traditional lectures; the use of online learning provides solutions that can overcome some problems with traditional education, especially in the area of medicine. With increasing constraints being placed on educators, one needs to explore other avenues for effective knowledge transfer to trainees especially in health care. e-learning provides flexibility in both time and location, while accessing curriculum presented online. The harnessing of computer technology, more specifically web-based tools open the door for collaboration amongst both students and teachers. E-learning adds many dimensions to the educational process and if utilized well, has the potential to enhance both the students and instructors educational experience. It will not replace the traditional teaching but can certainly augment the magnitude of knowledge dispensation to the ever increasing knowledge hunger of a student that essentially remains the driving force to excel in thisworld.E learning has come to stay for long.
