In short, education, learning and teaching were considered impossible without a teacher, books and chalkboards. Today education and training have taken on a whole new meaning. Computers are an essential part of every classroom and teachers are using DVDs CD-ROMs and videos to show students how things work and operate. Student can interact with the subject matters through the use of such web based tools and CD-ROMs. Moreover, each student can progress at his/her own pace. IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATIONAL CD’S Students can become active participants as opposed to passive ones where they simply receive instructions or information. Trust is another factor that enhances the learning ability of students. Teachers can establish credibility in what they are teaching.

Educational cd’s can include demos, feedbacks that can help the students to reflect on what they have learned. In all these ways educational cd’s plays a major role in a student’s life. 3. LEARNING MODULES Learning Module is a tool that provides course materials in a logical, sequential, order, guiding students through the content and assessments in the order specified by the instructor. Instructors can insert formatted text, files, weblinks. Discussion Topics, Assignments, Tests & Quizzes, and soon, Assessments. Content can be structured in such a way as to require students to complete content before they are allowed to proceed to the next content. It is also possible for instructors to set up a place for students to add content to the Learning Module. Learning modules are made by educators. Learning Modules are used to package and present content and allow instructors to organize related course materials in a Table of Contents. All types of content, such as items, Assignments, and Tests can be included in a Learning Module. Learning Modules are edited like any other item in a Content Area. Content within a Learning Module is added and managed just like content in a folder or Content Area. The Learning Module is a shell to which other types of content, such as files, are added.. Instructors can add folders and subfolders to a Learning Module to impose a hierarchical structure over the content. This hierarchy is an outline view that appears in the Table of Contents Depending on how an instructor sets up a Learning Module, students can view content in one of two ways: o Sequentially: material is viewed in a specific order. o Non-sequentially: material is viewed in any order. Learning Modules can be viewed sequentially or non-sequentially. If sequential viewing is enforced, Students view the Learning Module in the order listed. Students cannot advance to a page within the unit without having viewed the previous page. If sequential viewing is not enforced, items in the Learning
  6. 6. Module can be viewed in any order. Sequential viewing is set in the options for the Learning Module and can be changed at any time. A Learning Module is a logically structured collection of course content. Conceptually, it is similar to a chapter in a textbook. A Learning Module may consist of several sections and activities. Faculty members can add folders and sub-folders to a Learning Module and impose a hierarchical structure over the content. The Table of Contents displays the hierarchy in an outline view and enables students to easily comprehend the scope and structure of a lesson. IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING MODULE It’s a packet of teaching materials consisting of behavioral objectives , a sequence of learning activities , and provisions for evaluation. 1) The objective are written in behavioral terms are specific. 2) Sequence of learning activities is designed to : a) Provide instant feedback to the learner on his achievement. b) Proceed from lower to higher cognitive levels. c) Contain materials with intrinsic interest for the learner. d) Provide optional and recycling paths to achieve the objective. e) Be self continuative to the conclusion of the module. f) Equip the learner to achieve the stated behavioral objective. 3) The evaluation procedure focuses on the stated behavioral objective. It enables the instructor to determine whether the learner has achieved the objective. PURPOSE OF LEARNING MODULE 1) To individualize (or to permit use of teams of learners in) instruction. 2) Less stress on verbalized instruction 3) To provide a conceptual model for learning that minimizes the need for conventional, verbalized, instructional techniques. 4) To enable (or require) teachers to analyze the learning process. 5) To improve instruction through improved evaluation, resulting from the formulation and measurement of learning outcomes expressed in measurable terms. 6) To maximize the effective use of instructional media and group exercises. 7) To permit learning to occur outside the presence of the teacher. 8) Increased skills of teacher in analyzing the learner process.
  7. 7. Modules help to individualize instruction by a) Providing mediated (teacher free ) activities for one or more learners simultaneously. b) Permitting students to work at their own rate of learning . c) Providing immediate feedback to the learner and educator. d) Using intrinsic interest materials (relevant materials) e) Enhancing learner’s chance of successful achievement. The ideal instructional model (using modules ) would make each ‘course’ or program of study a collection of concepts to be internalized through ‘performance’ or ‘competency-based’ activities by learners. Responsibility for achievement of preset goals is placed on the learner .The instructor in such a system coordinates, evaluates, help in logistic requirements, counsels, and guides . Such activities are assumed to enhance the professional status of the teaching role. CONCLUSION Effective use and choose of interactive learning tools engages students to use new and emerging information and communication technologies. Teachers may use films, slides, overhead projectors, and the latest technology in teaching, including computers, telecommunication systems, and video discs. The use of computer resources, such as educational software, internet and other devices exposes students to a vast range of experiences and promotes interactive learning. Education is essential in corporate and academic settings. In the former, education or training is used to help workers do things differently than they did before. In the latter; education is geared towards creating curiosity in the minds of students. In either case, the use of technology can help students understand and retain concepts better.
