Sensing the importance of smooth interface between the author and learner of learning in any topic; Simpliv, a Fremont, CA-based provider of online education, has upped the ante with its unique improvisation of learning methodologies. The importance of working on achieving this feature has been arrived at after deep and thorough research on the current scenario of methodologies being adapted by many providers, the company says.
“Most learning imparted through the online medium, especially subjects such as computer programming, tend to be rather one-sided. Most online providers of knowledge seem to assume that this medium is meant to be instructive. We want to address this issue by incorporating the quality of smooth interface between the author (expert/instructor) and the learner on our learning platform. Our platform makes it extremely easy to navigate to areas of concern for the student, whereby she can select a particular topic or part of it and mark it for the author to see and address with ease.
The aim is to make online learning not only more interesting, but also effective. We noticed in our research and observation that most providers of online learning go by set patterns, where the courses are there to take up and the student carries out exercises to test what she has learnt. This is a wonderful feature to have, no doubt, but we felt that the crucial ingredient that was missing in all this was the interaction between the author and the learner. We have taken care of this issue, as a result of which our learners have a wonderful opportunity to not only carry out the usual exercises to put their learning to test; but to also interact directly with the authors of our courses”, said Shahanshah Manzoor, Founder of Simpliv.
Simpliv believes that this feature is a central element in all its courses, which run literally into hundreds. While this feature of author-learner interface can be extremely useful in IT courses, where learners can get stranded when they are not clear about something; it is equally useful in non-IT courses. Take the example of yoga, says Shahanshah Manzoor: “when a learner wants to take up a life-changing practice such as yoga from our courses, it is essential that the right technique for doing the asanas (postures) is understood. Without this, the very yoga that is meant to relieve the learner can have the opposite effect”.
Intricate elements of other courses such as painting, tattooing, photography and pottery, to name just a few of the hundreds of such courses that Simpliv offers, are best learned with active interaction between the expert and the learner. This philosophy is what has driven Simpliv to take utmost care in designing courses that not only are relevant to the learner, but are also imparted in a fashion that makes it worth learning and gaining benefits from.
