The closure of schools has made e-learning videos paramount to education.
E-learning is learning primarily achieved online (via the internet), through the use of provisioned digital resources. This implies that e-learning is carried out on a connected computer, which can be a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Nonetheless, for e-learning to be realised, a program to run the e-learning resources is also required. Which is why e-learning apps and websites are being developed for compatibility with the computer or browser, as the case may be.
Smartphone users in Nigeria, with Android O.S can install relevant e-learning applications from Google Play Store to access the e-learning resources. In addition, they can opt to visit e-learning websites to access resources or watch videos right from their browsers.
E-learning videos focus on the visual and auditory faculties of children. They learn by seeing and hearing from the participants of the videos. Therefore, reading alone doesn’t account for much of learning. Stuffing children with books, for a start can make them disinterested, which won’t play well in their learning process.
YouTube, an online video sharing platform has highlighted channels for watching e-learning videos in Nigeria.
