"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. In the most precious Name of LORD JESUS CHRIST I pray FATHER. Amen"


"Christ died for our sins...He was buried...He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures...He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred..."
(1 Corinthians 15:3-6).


The term ‘e learning’ in general refers to learning facilitated and supported through the use of information and communication technology.

It can cover a spectrum of activities from supported learning, to blended learning (the combination of traditional and ICT enhanced practices), to learning that is entirely online.

E learning, therefore, is an approach to facilitate and enhance learning through both computer and communication technology.

E learning today allows student to get fully involved in interactive and collaborative learning processes through the use of Internet –may be though asynchronous activities like e mail, discussion forum, blogs, wikis or through the synchronous activities like chat session, video conferencing etc.

A web based learning management system allows students to have access to rich digital content in multiple format and try out different thing with the inbuilt high level of interactivity features and makes the learning community-based through the ace to teacher and fellow learners.

Computer -A Tool for Teacher!

eacher work can be made easier and faster with computers.

Computer Enhanced Instruction (CEI) refers to using computers to bring additional dimensions to traditional teaching methods. This includes using computers to create instructional materials, slide shows, videotapes, worksheets, tests, bulletin board materials, rewards, incentives, games, and displays.

It also includes using computers to increase personal productivity through grade-book programs and processing programs.

Teachers who use computers in these ways find that instruction is indeed enhancement. They are more productive, more organized because of the thought and planning required, and more efficient because of better record keeping.

The learning environment is more appealing when materials are neatly and professionally generated.

Finally, students generally have more positive impressions of teachers when they use computer in the classroom.

Internet –based Teaching and Learning (IBTL)

Internet, wherein, millions of computers are networked, is probably then most Transformative technology in history reshaping all walks of human life in an astonishing way! Teachers can make use of educational Internet sites as a form of virtual classrooms.

It provides access to real educational source and provides connection with large learning communities thus becoming a powerful source of inquiry and exploration. Information and resources from around the world, as along as one is connected to Internet.

It also provides access to new developments and discoveries. Students can visit online libraries, observatories, museums, and consult experts around the globe. They can have a guided tour of scientific location through Internet.

Quality of teaching and learning can be greatly enhanced by this method. Web-based animation and simulation techniques bring movement and simulation techniques bring movement to static textbook lessons. These techniques will recreate students.

They can feed the data and make observations from which they will be able to draw conclusions and confirm the results that were taught. The rich multi-sensory nature of the web-based learning will definitely make any subject quite interesting.


1) Individualization and self- pacing.
Students can work at their own pace of using computers. Students retain display as long as they want. Software programs can be used according to the learners’ and teachers’ presentation of display.
2) Immediate feedback.
Instructional computer program provides immediate feedback to each student about his performance.
3) Consistent correction procedures.
Computer-assisted instruction programs provide specific, concise correction.
4) Repetition without pressure. Students can use computers to repeat problem solving as many times as required .Computers don’t get tired!
5) Immediate knowledge of correct responses. In the traditional method of teacher’s instruction, the student has to wait until the response sheet is corrected. But in computer instruction, a student gets immediate evaluation report (and feedback) for the content areas.
6) Well-sequenced instruction. Software package provides content into small steps and allows students to master one step at a time. Well-designed and well-sequenced instructions enable different levels of learners to learn according to their own pace of learning.
7) High frequency of student response. Good software is highly interactive, demanding student response. Students cannot remain passive in front of a computer; so students remain on task and get more practice.
8) Repeated demonstration of mastery of academic subject matter. For students who have experienced failure, software programs may allow success by providing review and recall of previous learning.
9) Motivation. Students get motivated to work and learn academic subjects. They develop self-interest and self-motivation to take up the task of learning aspects through computer-instruction.
10) Increased time on task. Students really spend more time working with computers than they do with traditional paperwork.
