Notes on Learning Object, Video Conferencing, GPS and other Navigation software

Notes on Learning Object, Video Conferencing, GPS and other Navigation software

learning object is a particular set of items to be learned. It is the combination of content and its various aspects. In other words, a Learning Object is –
  • collection of content items
  • Collection of practice items suitable to the collected content items
  • Assessment items that are combined based on a single learning objective
The concept include by “Learning Objects” is known by numerous other terms, including: content objects, portion, educational objects, information objects, intelligent objects, knowledge bits, knowledge objects, learning components, media objects, reusable curriculum components, nuggets, reusable information objects, reusable learning objects, testable reusable units of cognition, training components, and units of learning.

Video conferencing is the conduct of a video conference (also known as a video conference or video teleconference) by a set of telecommunication technologies which allow two or more locations to communicate by simultaneous two-way video and audio transmissions. Video conference can be formally conducted for teaching purpose. For example, a class room teacher can organize video conference with an expert in class room situation. The expert can be from a distant location. Students in the classroom will get opportunity for asking questions, clearing doubts and so on. Video conference can be video chat in types.
Nowadays video conference can be easily conducted by the use of Skype, or Imo or Line or any such software that provide option for video chatting.

Impact on education

Videoconferencing provides students the opportunity to learn by participating in two-way communication. Furthermore, teachers and lecturers worldwide can be brought to remote or otherwise isolated educational facilities. Students from diverse communities and backgrounds can come together to learn about one another. Such students are able to explore, communicate, analyze and share information and ideas with one another. Through videoconferencing, students can visit other parts of the world to speak with their peers, and visit museums and educational facilities. Such virtual field trips can provide enriched learning opportunities to students, especially those in geographically isolated locations, and to the economically disadvantaged. Small schools can use these technologies to pool resources and provide courses, such as in foreign languages, which could not otherwise be offered.
A few examples of benefits that videoconferencing can provide in school campus environments include:
·         faculty members keeping in touch with classes while attending conferences;
·         guest lecturers brought in classes from other institutions;
·                     researchers collaborating with colleagues at other institutions on a regular basis without loss of time due to travel
·         schools with multiple school campuses collaborating and sharing teacher’s expertise
·         schools from two separate nations can engage in cross-cultural exchanges
·         faculty members participating in thesis defenses at other institutions;
·         Tele conferencing can be conducted as Tele-seminars.
Navigation is the system to navigate on any place in the earth! Internet provides support for navigation through satellite riding.

GPS navigation software

GPS is navigation software. There is some other navigation software like IRNSS or GLONAS.
GPS means Global Positioning System. This is a navigator to find any place by using satellite navigation system. But GPS is the word used to navigating while use American satellites. If we use it by Russian satellite then it is called GLONAS. Now India too developed a positioning system by using satellite. It is known as IRNSS. Now we can say good bye to GPS and use Desi navigating system by IRNSS ( Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System or IRNSS) 
Navigation tracking, often with a map ‘picture’ in the background, but showing where you have been, and allowing ‘routes’ to be preprogrammed, giving a line you can follow on the screen.  One can find road ways in a screen while drive a motor car by using navigation system.
