Collection and Custodianship of Classroom Data
Early efforts in correspondence courses and self-learning through programmed instruction methodologies were ventures in alternatives to the traditional face-to-face, in the classroom modality of delivering and receiving education. Subsequent technologies have provided new and improved ways of delivering these self-paced course materials. Wrapped in today's technology and incorporating revised educational models e-education has evolved. In this chapter, e-education refers to the replacement or supplement of traditional face-to-face delivery of learning components with electronically based elements. Further, primary focus is on e-education where there is:
- Mediation, i.e., an instructor to evaluate the progress of the student;
- An acknowledgement of completion i.e., a degree, a certificate, or a grade; and
- Some form of measuring the student's progress or evaluation of accomplishment.
E-education is also referred to as online learning, virtual learning, and Web-based learning.
