Introduction Students who enroll in distance education courses tend to be aged 20-40, employed at least part-time, and sometimes unable to meet the entrance requirements to regular programs  Integration of high technology with multimedia tools must be emphasized because e-learning relies heavily on technologies.
There is an argument that conventional learning is the best way in maintaining a learning process. Other learning methods consider it to be less efficient. Universities have a proud tradition of combining learning, research, teaching, and professional development . Some professors are afraid of their role as main instructor have been replaced by computer. This condition made them feel that they are not needed anymore in university. M-learning has the potential of taking learning and knowledge across geographical boundaries and generations due to the fact that it can be accessed with ease. U=M+E+ Television Learning
So far we have seen literature on the mode of delivery : e or m or u or blended ! Are we really considering the Learners? What do they prefer? Which type of learning system has more impact? Are we giving them What we have or Giving them What they need? Lets analyse some of the learning styles that a Higher education student may have:
Multiple Intelligence Theory Source: Gardner
Learning Styles! What does it mean? Every student has a learning style. There are three learning styles: Visual Auditory Kinesthetic
Visual Prefer to see Love to watch movies/ animations Prefer colors If you need to really explain to the VISUAL learner how one feels every Friday after office hours and on every Monday morning, it is advisable to show the above video:
Auditory Love music and sound Have keen ears Will love discussions Use Sounds to speak
Kinesthetic Mischievous Fidgety Cannot sit at one place for long Will love to volunteer
VAK Learning Style I LOVE YOU A Greeting, Rose I LOVE YOU A Hug and a … STUDENT STYLES PPT, Photos, Different Ink, refer books –see- & clear doubts. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Loves to discuss, will clear doubts with friends, ask questions, argue.. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Will go and DO IT, test it, see models, Fidgety, etc.
M- Learnin g Conventi onal Learning Auditory, Visual, and Kinesthetic components T-Learning concept advocates a blend of Conventional Learning, e-learning and m-learning. E- Learning
A little intervention of a teacher can make a great difference….. The idea of M-Learning in India floated thru a T.V. advertisement
Design your Knowledge Transfer strategy Now that the learning styles of the students are known, we have to design the instructions so that each type of student really enjoys the Knowledge Acquisition Process. For ex: The teacher can Use Multilingual instruction Use Videos/ Photographs for Visual students Use Audio mode for Auditory Students Use Simulation and Practical session for Kinesthetic Students Have a class in a Jungle/Forest if you have Naturalist students Avoid bugging students with Mathematics who have lower Mathematical Score … and you are the best designer of instructions!
Conclusion It is seen that e-learning and m-learning in isolated or stand alone execution, did not fetch appreciable results in students of higher education. Students need to be motivated to learn and this element greatly abstains itself in the e-m-u- methodology. In the total learning model which proposes a content with a proper mix of e-m-u-c methods and also adhering to the content of including visual, auditory and kinesthetic modules makes learning more interesting and knowledge retention is better. This is reflected in the results of the test 2 and 3 and also in the test conducted for the T- group. The T-group who were subjected to Total Learning Model did better than the others. This implies that TLM is effective and can be practiced for other professions like medical and engineering too.
