Educational Technology aims to improve education for the 21st century learners. As the ‘non-digital native’, the facilitator needs to access the benefits of this technology. Some of the advantages that can be directly seen are:

  • The facilitator can post course material or important information that can be accessed by all the learners in a
    shorter time.His/her responses can also be received by the facilitator and a feedback can be provided. It provides grounds for interactive learning and the facilitator is able to engage the learner in a positive manner.
  • Facilitators who have successfully implemented technology into the classroom have more learners who are interested in learning the subject matter.
  • The facilitator can share learning material for wider participation. This material can be used for long distance learning and can be accessed by a wider audience.
