Distance eLearning

Distance elearning, sometimes called e-learning, is a formalized teaching and learning system specifically designed to be carried out remotely by using electronic communication. Below are details of elearning companies in South Africa, who offer a range of training courses and elearning programs in South Africa.

Standardized classroom facilitated training requires that the employees are out of the work environment for 2 to 20 days per calendar year and the impact of this on time, investment and productivity has become a challenge for small, medium and large enterprises.

In keeping with Samsung’s goal to enrich and transform lives through digital technology, the electronics giant today reiterated its commitment to advancing access to technology in education across Africa.

Thirty years ago, a typical worker expected to find a job and stay in that company until retirement. Training happened on the job and was entirely at the discretion of the employer. Few economically disadvantaged workers were able to independently afford further training or higher education.

As thousands of South Africans prepare to enrol in distance learning programmes this year, recognising the value of being able to ‘earn while you learn’, an education expert has urged them to ensure they do careful research to find the right institution and right course for their individual needs before parting with their money.

Most of us don’t have to travel far to work, shop, worship or play. And for basic education, there’s always a school nearby. But what if you need further training for your job or aspire to higher education and there isn’t an institution locally?

The information revolution has shifted learning away from ordered hierarchies toward a much messier, disorganised and self-directed learning paradigm.

Prospective students are increasingly opting for distance learning as a first choice, with the sector experiencing strong growth as a result of its harnessing of technological advancements.

A key buzzword at the moment in the education space is “blended learning”, but very few people would have heard this term before the higher education crisis forced the hand of public universities to introduce this delivery method ahead of this year’s final exams.

MOOCs, SPOCs, GROOCS: there’s no shortage of online learning options for executives. But there are some real, tangible advantages to brick-and-mortar learning environments that will be hard to replace – and the online space has some way to go.

The University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) will be the first South African business school to offer its MBA in real-time online, transferring the physical classroom space to anywhere in the world.
