Real Life of Example of John Batch

See the ease and benefits of belonging to e-learning so I decided to use e-learning methods in the process of learning outside of the classroom, I use from the service provider of e-learning, e-learning nowadays many developments, there are e-learning combined with gamification method.

All the experience of using e-learning methods, I feel the closeness and enthusiastic students I receive in the subject matter that I pass through e-learning be increased. In the virtual classroom (E-Learning), the interaction and communication between students in the classes I like on a conventional class, which is where all my students to be "free" to communicate with my friends and also to competitors, in responding to the material that I convey.

Students not only as recipients of learning modules, and then download it, then not know what to do next other than reading, required to be honest, this is often the case.

As long as I use the e-learning is usually the interaction and communication in the virtual classroom can only be done using text only, and sue me for creative in managing words can motivate students to be active in the class virtually. In line with the technological developments of the current e-learning not only text-based but includes similar to like a game and can also use the video.

When using e-learning, correct exam results daily, can easily be done using this method. Even to assess it is set by the system so much easier and efficient time.
