Meet the needs of students from rural areas

For example, this is a big challenge to find enough teachers in India to provide skilled teaching. So, dr. Maddox Sade has implemented e-learning courses to solve this problem.

E-learning helps to improve educational quality, engage young learners. Students become more confident, they use their knowledge and appreciate the opportunity to study. This program allows learners teach themselves and their families.

In India, online learning has many good results and students won first place at the science competing. It helps to prepare learners for the good higher education as well. After the graduation of the university, they will come back to the villages to develop them.

There are many partners who invest in e-learning programs in India because one system costs 1500$ and educators may use it for three years. Investors permanently visit the village to check the process.

The Polytechnic of Namibia is transforming in university with features to attend classes flexibly and online according to the full-time job, family obligation and for those who are from rural areas. Online tutors help students to learn, answer their questions, provide guidance and try to meet their needs. They use the ADDIE model to understand how students learn and how to implement new technology. It includes analysis, evaluation, implementation, development and design.

Educators apply learning management systems and collaborative learning through the social networks and forums as well. E-learning system gives all appropriate information such as requirements for the evaluations. It provides all assignments, online library, weekly activities, and guidance on the website.
