The Learning Ecosystem takes into consideration the eLearning Industry & environment that provides learners with tools and knowledge that need to achieve their learning goals. In this perspective, the components and the characteristics come into picture, for maximizing the efforts.
Characteristics of The Learning Ecosystem:
An eLearning ecosystem comprises an eLearning environment wherein the learning technologies, authoring tools, content and all correlated aspects aim to instill the learning path and improve skills for all learners. Every learner within the eLearning environment participates and contributes to maximize the resources and the benefits with continuous collaboration, to meet the desired learning objectives.
Empowering the learners to learn while being in active participation as a part of the learning ecosystem ensures a successful learning environment. Hence, it is imperative that learners choose to operate with an open mind to completely take advantage of the ecosystem.
Components of The Learning Ecosystem:
Just as the Scientific Ecosystem has Organisms, a physical environment and the relationship that entangles both of these, a Learning Ecosystem too, in order to remain successful, must have the following three components with seamless coordination:
a) the learners/facilitators
b) the eLearning resources
c) the eLearning culture
While these are self explanatory, there are also a few core ideologies that are ought to be a eLearning Ecosystem, in order to be successful:
a) Interactive Content:
High quality digital rich content in various forms encourages interactive eLearning for improvised better outcomes. This also enables the learners to emotionally connect the learners with the eLearning courses. eLearning content should always be aimed at achieving learning goals with changing learning patterns and environments.
b) Auto Corrective Assessments:
Learners will truly benefit from learning only when the assessments are offered on a regular basis, which is the key for the learning process. Tracking learners’ progress and allowing learners to review and improve continuously as a part of the eLearning Ecosystem is very crucial. Assessments could be via online exams, project work, scenarios or simulations etc.
c) Support Structure:
Support is the heart of every Ecosystem.WIthout assistance and feedback, there will hardly be progress made and learners are less likely to achieve the desired learning outcomes. A support structure and a supportive eLearning culture is a must as a part of the learning Ecosystem for progressive learning outcomes.
Access to extensive learning resources to gain knowledge base, able to reach out to peers or instructors at all the times for continuous learning with collaboration increases the motivation of learners, so as to remain active in the learning process.
d) Latest Technologies:
Learners have access to extensive knowledge and skill set to interact in a virtual environment. Advanced technologies apart from digital rich resources, augmented reality, virtual reality and gamification are the next leading technologies which aid in personalized learning making reality very soon, irrespective of access via smart digital devices.
