E-learning is electronic learning, and typically this means using a computer to deliver part, or all of a course whether it’s in a school, part of your mandatory business training or a full distance learning course.

In the early days it received a bad press, as many people thought bringing computers into the classroom would remove that human element that some learners need, but as time has progressed technology has developed, and now we embrace smart phones and tablets in the classroom and office, as well as using a wealth of interactive designs that makes distance learning not only engaging for the users, but valuable as a lesson delivery medium.

Building partnerships with quality training providers, and combining this with a dedicated experienced technical team and support staff, Virtual College provides the perfect blended learning environment, offering anyone the chance to take their online training to the next level.

There are many terms used to describe learning that is delivered online, via the internet, ranging from Distance Education, to computerized electronic learning, online learning, internet learning and many others. We define eLearning as courses that are specifically delivered via the internet to somewhere other than the classroom where the professor is teaching. It is not a course delivered via a DVD or CD-ROM, video tape or over a television channel. It is interactive in that you can also communicate with your teachers, professors or other students in your class. Sometimes it is delivered live, where you can “electronically” raise your hand and interact in real time and sometimes it is a lecture that has been prerecorded. There is always a teacher or professor interacting /communicating with you and grading your participation, your assignments and your tests. E- Learning has been proven to be a successful method of training and education is becoming a way of life for many citizens in North Carolina

E-Learning Localization

As e-learning has become the solution of choice for a variety of educational and training purposes, e-learning localization has become a significant part of Anan Translation. From internationalization of the initial course modules to adaptation for a particular audience, we can help.

People from different cultures may learn in different ways. That is why a cultural correctness assessment is an important part of our e-learning localization services. The assessment, carried out by our resources with relevant in-country training experience, will consider:

  • Accessibility: how is the application delivered, introduced and presented to the local audience?
  • Expectations: how well are the expectations of the learning experience communicated to the local audience?
  • Style and content: how well is the source content written—in terms of consistency and cultural and humorous references?

Our e-learning localization experience has covered a variety of formats including modules created using commercial e-learning authoring programs such as Captivate, Articulate, and Tool Book.
