Recommendations - more formative evaluation - especially for e-Learning, in the testing area for; content accuracy; content sequencing; interaction & feedback adequacy; look & feel; site navigation ; broken links & interactions.
Recommendations Each and every one needs to notice, three paradigms viz., (a)the perceptual user interface (PUI) that allows to infer the users inten tions from the observation of his/her explicit and implicit behaviour; (b) the attentive user interface (AUI), conceived for deducting and managing, the users attention; (c)the affective user interface (AFUI), which analyzes the users emotional state for better adaptation.
Conclusion Applying technology-based methods requires lecturers to acquire adequate skills and capabilities. Adopting and applying these new eLearning methods and techniques generates a role-transition, turning lecturers from knowledge-providers into mentors. Enriching the Indian teacher education curricula with eLearning-based courses improves efficiency, without reducing academic effectiveness.
